Fundition was built on the idea of collaboration, aiming to help bring people together toward a mutual goal. Behind Fundition, stands the idea of Founders, Supporters and Backers working together to change the world and their lives for the better.
Now, seven months since its inception, Fundition is proud to announce a collaboration and partnership with Utopian.io, an initiative utilizing the Steem blockchain to incentivize open source development collaboration.
Utopian.io is one of the first platforms built on the Steem blockchain with a vision similar to that of Fundition. Utopian.io (@utopian-io) aims to crowdsource the development and promotion of open source projects, and reward professional contributions to open source projects on and off the Steem blockchain. Since its inception, Utopian.io has distributed thousands of STEEM to FOSS projects and contributors all over the world, and has helped dozens of project owners realize and promote their visions.
With such a similar vision of collaboration and crowdfunded success of innovative initiatives and projects, a partnership between the two is only natural. We are very excited to offer you this opportunity to empower your open source project with the combined power and reach of Fundition, and access to the open source contributor community of Utopian.io.
Utopian.io + Fundition.io = Open Source Success
If you are a FOSS project owner, or have been thinking of developing one - you are in luck! Fundition and Utopian are your combination for crowdfunding and crowdsourcing the growth and development of your idea and vision.
Empower YOUR Open Source Project
To make your Open Source dream a reality, you already know you need two main things - a budget and a community of passionate professional contributors. To get started, all you need to do is create a Fundition campaign for your project and promote it.
When you create the project on Fundition it should include:
- Description: An attractive and detailed description of your project, including an introduction of the project and team, relevant images and videos, project goals and the story behind your open source initiative.
- Goals: Include a short summary of the above-mentioned project goals.
- Rewards: This optional section to include rewards or incentives for your potential supporters can help increase the visibility of your crowdfunding campaign.
How to Receive Support for Your Project from Utopian.io
To get @utopian-io support for your project, you need to ensure that your project update posts are tagged correctly to be included also as contributions to the blog category on Utopian.io.
Until the new Utopian.io frontend is made available to the public, you simply need to include the following tags in your Steem post published through your Steem frontend of choice (steemit.com, busy.org, etc.): utopian-io as the first tag and blog as second. Don’t forget to add the URL to your github repository at the top of your post.
Be sure to familiarize yourself with the community participation policies and publishing guidelines for Utopian.io and the specific category.
The last tag to include in your update posts in order to link them to your Fundition campaign is your Fundition project tag, that can be found on your Project News Section.
Note that only project updates made to the blog category on Utopian.io will be considered for an upvote from @utopian-io according to category moderation and scoring conventions.
If you have questions, or would like to hear more about the services and opportunities Utopian.io can offer YOUR open source project, please join the #project-owners channel on the Utopian.io Discord server.
