bootstrapColony(). The documentation above states that
@param _amount Amount of reputation/amount for every address.
amountcan only be positive, as we are assigning initial reputation and tokens to users
Further justification of this function can be found in the whitepaper
During a colony’s creation, the creator of the colony is granted the ability to designate an initial set of addresses to receive native tokens and an equivalent amount of reputation.
yarn run provision:token:contractsto provision these contracts, I have updated the repo readme to include that instruction https://github.com/JoinColony/colonyNetwork/blob/develop/docs/README.md#install
Also I’d like to cordially invite you (and everyone here) to our discord community which should function as a one-stop-shop for all dev and community related discussions: https://discord.gg/r8gQC9
It should be more active there and also easier to get in touch with the network team (and the rest of us)
