Our Value

Bugmark is a futures market for software issues. Bugmark pioneers an approach using a two-sided market, allowing both funders and workers to make offers that are resolved auction style. We believe the market signals generated by Bugmark will be the most efficient way to allocate resources to high-value issues.
