Blurtopian - Empowering Open-Source Contributors


blurtopian3 months ago2 min read


Blurtopian is a curation project whose mission is to empower open-source contributors through social and crypto rewards.

It was inspired by @utopian-io which was founded by @elear. For the very first post about the project, you can refer to the founder's post here.

How is Blurtopian different from Utopian-io?

The main difference will be the challenge the project aims to address and the approach it takes to tackle it. Utopian-io tackled multiple categories, Blurtopian will scale down and focus on a smaller set until an effective tool, process, and team are formed. When the need is there, the project will expand to other categories.

Core Values

As posted in the project lead's post, these are the core values that the project will adopt.

  1. Transparency
  2. Faithfulness
  3. Innovation
  4. Service
  5. Sacrifice
  6. Boldness
  7. Humility

Contribution Categories

Initial categories to be curated:

  1. Blog (#blurtopian #blog)
  2. Development (#blurtopian #development)

Voting Scales

Initially, all development tasks will get 100% (with discretion). As more complicated contributions come in and the need for a more refined voting scale is needed, these changes will be reflected in an open-source project guideline(link to be posted later here).

Blog contributions will be initially set to 50%.
