Introduction to Gitopia


Gitopia is the next-generation Decentralized Code Collaboration Platform fueled by a decentralized network and interactive token economy. It is designed to optimize the software development process through collaboration, transparency, and open source incentivization.

Gitopia provides developers a community-governed decentralized platform where they can host their git repositories permanently and collaborate with others on code without worrying about getting censored or losing access to their code. Gitopia also leverages open source incentivization to reward open-source contributions and help maintainers sustain their open-source projects.
