Gitcoin is an Ethereum-based application for the open source software ecosystem.

Why?

Despite the power of the open source software solutions they build, Open Source Developers receive a small percentage of compensation relative to their economic value to the 21st century economy.  Open Source Developers are underfunded, under-appreciated, and overworked. 
Gitcoin brings market dynamics to the problem of allocating the scarce attention of software developers. It's a distributed application that augments coding networks like Github.com with a fun, lightweight interface for exchanging scarce tokens that can:

1.   Filter signal from noise
2.   Incentivize software development.

Our long-term vision is to disrupt the software development lifecycle end-to-end.  What Uber did for ridesharing, Gitcoin has the potential to do to software development.

Open Source Software is the foundation of millions of careers in software development. For developers like myself who have built careers on python, javascript, HTML5, Ubuntu, and countless other Open Source technologies, its easy to forget that it wasn’t  always this way. 

Before the advent of distributed version control systems like Git in 2005, Open Source was a fringe phenomenon. The launch of Github, several years after Git become a phenomenon, further pushed open source forward by making it easy for developers to share ideas, get feedback, and distribute their code. Today, Github has 5.8 million active users, 331k active organizations, and enabled 815k new users to make their first pull request in 2016 alone.

As far as Open Source has come, there is still a disconnect between the _value_ that the open source ecosystem provides to the modern economy, and the compensation provided to developers for that impact. The Oracle’s and Red Hat’s of the world have built successful businesses built upon open source, but the small and mid-caps of the world have not yet unbundled those business models.

The launch of Ethereum and the smart contract infrastructure built upon it has the potential to change all that. By tokenizing value and making it programmatically easy and secure to exchange value, there exists an opportunity to push open source forward with borderless, secure, easy payments.

What?

Gitcoin Core is a team of developers that believes each of the follow actors in the Open Source ecosystem have a lot to gain by removing middlemen, creating new opportunities, and introducing efficiencies into their workflow:

Gitcoin is a series of smart contracts designed to push open source forward.

https://i.imgur.com/HCKyCub.png

So what exactly is Gitcoin? Gitcoin is a distributed network of Smart Contracts, based upon Ethereum that enables:

- Job Hunters to find work, and perhaps more importantly, to try out working together before they commit.
- Open Source Contributors to make a living wage off of their work in open source.
- Repo Maintainers to galvanize an always-on, globalized, network of peers.

https://i.imgur.com/CgeHbO9.png

By facilitating the transfer of value through this ecosystem, Gitcoin solves for the inefficiencies in this triple-sided market:

https://i.imgur.com/uCLV6G7.png

How?

The Gitcoin network is live today.  At the center of the current functionality is the Gitcoin Bounty Explorer. The Bounty Explorer is an index of all of the funded tasks available immediately worldwide. Here is what it looks like (and hey, there’s an API also!)

https://i.imgur.com/KyedoCb.png

It is possible, based upon the momentum of this launch, that a token distribution event will occur.  If that is the case, the token distribution event will be detailed within the Gitcoin Whitepaper.

We believe in building tools that are by & for the community.   As such, every piece of application code or smart contract used in production is posted on our github.

Very cool idea and much needed in the OSS world.

I would like to see this project on ethereum classic or possibly even UBQ. Get a sense that core values align. Just a thought

Open source code. Is this good or bad? On the one hand, it's good that different developers can use it. And what is bad? Well, in order of delirium, I can assume that unscrupulous developers can use it to write a virus. For hacking security system. What is a Block Chain? This is a chain of blocks, where each subsequent block confirms the previous one. And if an attacker, using the ability to read open source, replace a string of characters inside the chain. And then what happens to the chain of blocks?

Really nice, having a coin that are open source, it will give possibilities about the project and it always be spreading the track.

I see from the announcement of this project is not satisfactory because I do not see a detailed explanation of the announcements made by the project but in my opinion this is enough to clarify and require good development so that the results can be satisfactory

+1! Excited to see what comes of this.

You have a very important and necessary project, I would like to know whether there will be an ICO and a bounty campaign.  Shocked

From what I understand, I don't believe there will be an ICO (at least at this point)- which I'm a big fan of.
