Open Source

Open source software development is essential to building trust and safety into blockchain networks. Open source software is collaboratively produced, shared freely, published transparently, and developed to be a community good rather than the property or business of a single company or person. When a project is developed open source there isn’t a single choke point in the development process, no company or individual that makes, owns, and sells the software. Just as there is no single company that powers the Bitcoin network, neither is there one company that makes the software that, when run on internet connected computers, creates that network.
