# Why do bounties only come in integer multiples of $50$? [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

I know this belongs on the main meta, but I don't have an account there, so I'm posting it here. I was trying to set a bounty for exactly $52$ rep on this question. The reason for this was that it would bring me down to exactly $700$ rep. However, it only allows bounties that are integer multiples of 50. Why is this?
