§Child Bounties Pallet ( pallet-child-bounties )

§Child Bounty

NOTE: This pallet is tightly coupled with pallet-treasury and pallet-bounties.

With child bounties, a large bounty proposal can be divided into smaller chunks, for parallel execution, and for efficient governance and tracking of spent funds. A child bounty is a smaller piece of work, extracted from a parent bounty. A curator is assigned after the child bounty is created by the parent bounty curator, to be delegated with the responsibility of assigning a payout address once the specified set of tasks is completed.
