Bounty to compensate expert advisors of Phala team(Nov. to Dec.)


The Phala core team took a very small (5%) amount of tokens compared to other blockchain projects to be able to distribute more to the community and the miners. By doing this, it was always our vision to use the Treasury to support those most active in making the network a success and compensating for a professional advisor team that helps to develop Phala in many respects. Doing this on-chain maximizes transparency and avoids opaque advisor deals. This proposal is the first attempt to implement such a plan using the Bounty system. Although the Council does have the power to spend Treasury funds, we decided to put this up for a community referendum to avoid any conflict of interest and to get the maximum discussion and buy-in from the Phala stakeholders. That means, we will not use the Council's power to execute this bounty directly but have the public decide on it.
