Does not matter know from years of working like this in the end the
skill of making will  get paid than the spade itself, since they
invariably want something which they think is unique idea or product
and hence they pay for making it.

as far as sharing the bounty is concerned you can share from what you
have or  you do not have any or one becomes greedy over time , so this
behavior is once social currency which also comes into play.
