BitcoinTalk announcement post: Grace — Donations Platform for Maximal Social Good
Community involvement is the foundation of Grace platform. We believe a wide adoption of Grace is essential to the effective functioning of the network, which in turn can serve as a platform to revolutionize charity fundraising.
Our goal is to make Grace an essential player in the world of charitable giving and nonprofits, by allowing charities of all sizes to leverage our network in their fundraising processes — such that even the many otherwise neglected but worthy causes can finally receive the exposure and donations they need.
By participating in a bounty campaign, you can become a part of the Grace project. Early adopters can get involved by participating in any, or all, of the bounty campaigns outlined in the following sections. We have set aside 2,400,000 GRCEs (2% of total supply) for various bounties, which would be distributed to the supporters after the token sale.
Here’s another reason to participate in the bounty campaigns: Even if you have no plan to keep your GRCE coins or utilize the network, you can always donate them to charity campaigns on Grace!Resources and Assets BitcoinTalk Announcement ThreadWhitepaperWebsiteTwitterFacebook Bounty Campaign How It Works
Each of the following campaigns is allocated a fixed number of GRCE tokens. For each of the specified actions, participants receive “stakes” which are points used to calculate the final amount of GRCE rewarded.
The reward amount is calculated by multiplying the total GRCE amount allocated to the campaign, by the proportion of the participant’s stakes to the total stakes in the campaign.
Consider the following example. A participant, Alice, accumulates 100 stakes in the Facebook bounty campaign by liking, commenting and sharing. If the total stakes by all participants in the Facebook campaign at the end of the token sale is 10,000 stakes, Alice receives 600,000 * 100 / (10,000) = 6,000 GRCE for her contribution in the Facebook campaign.
Any individual can participate in multiple campaigns at the same time, provided that they meet the campaign-specific requirements.1. Forum Bounty: Reddit, BitcoinTalk — 20>#/h4### Reddit

Participants in the bounty campaign earn stakes by carrying out each of the aforementioned actions. The number of GRCE tokens allocated to each category will be proportionally distributed among everyone participating in the bounties in that category, according to the stakes earned by the participant.
The total bounty pool to be distributed is 2,400,000 GRCE tokens. Neither the min/max sales target nor the amount in ETH raised from the crowdsale impact the bounty pool — the 2.4 million figure is fixed.
Following the crowdsale, all stakes data will be calculated, whereupon the winners and bounties will be officially announced. Participants will be asked to send their ETH wallet addresses (https://www.myetherwallet.com/) to email@example.com to claim their bounty.
