This paper proposes a design pattern that combines gamification dynamics along with blockchains for the purpose of using blockchain technology in a business-savvy fashion as support to a framework for collaborative problem solving, i.e., leveraging gamification to incentivize people to produce efficient, freely available and easily accessible solutions in the optimisation research and the potentiality of blockchain technology to safekeep the intellectual property on such solutions, marking the progress of problem solving as intellectual capital. The proposed gamification design pattern is then instantiated in the context of optimisation.
