Features of Gitopia

At various stages of release, Gitopia will offer the following features which will enable collaborators to experience a platform that solves the major problems they have with centralized platforms:

1. Permanent storage By leveraging blockchain technology, Gitopia provides its users with permanent storage for their git repositories.

2. Decentralized Gitopia will have a decentralized network of validators and stakers to govern and secure the platform. There will be no central authority in Gitopia.

3. Governance In Gitopia, all the platform-related decisions will be taken with the community's involvement transparently. They can vote on proposals and help shape the future of Gitopia.

4. Censorship Resistant There is no central authority that can take down any repository on Gitopia. Instead, the community decides the content policies and is responsible for platform moderation.

5. No Single Point of Failure There will be no disruption of service in Gitopia due to the usage of a decentralized network. The decentralized network of Gitopia will provide high availability and a stable network.

6. Secure The repositories on Gitopia will be secured by public-key cryptography and thus resistant to unauthorized usage and hacking.

7. Transparency The source code of Gitopia will be open source, and hence its workflows are out in the open for other developers to inspect.

8. Stakeholders Users will be stakeholders of Gitopia and will get incentivized when the Gitopia platform grows.

9. Open-source incentivization Open-source incentivization will be integrated into the Gitopia workflow. It will be designed to motivate open-source developers to contribute to open-source projects actively.

10. Actionable Licenses Gitopia will keep its users informed about the open-source licenses on the projects they clone and work on through contracts. This will ensure to some extent that open source licenses are actionable.

11. Interoperable Gitopia will be integrated with the Cosmos IBC layer (Inter-Blockchain Communication) to establish interoperability between Gitopia’s application layer and various other blockchains that are interoperable with the Cosmos IBC.
