  • Treasury - The Treasury is a pot of funds collected through transaction fees, slashing, staking inefficiencies, etc.

  • Bounties - Bounties Spending proposals aim to delegate the curation activity of spending proposals to experts called Curators: They can be defined as addresses with agency over a portion of the Treasury with the goal of fixing a bug or vulnerability, developing a strategy, or monitoring a set of tasks related to a specific topic: all for the benefit of the Polkadot ecosystem.
