Most technology companies rely on open source software projects. But open source software projects are often maintained by a group of people that is not affiliated with any particular company. When an open source project develops too much technical debt, it can become a tragedy of the commons. Who is responsible for maintaining these open source projects?
This is the motivation for open source bounties. Companies and individuals who rely on open source create bounties, which are financial incentives for developers to solve problems within the open source project.
Gitcoin is a platform for open source bounties that is mediated by an Ethereum smart contract.
Gloria Kimbwala works at Gitcoin and joins the show to discuss the recent developments in the Gitcoin Ecosystem.
