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.
Gitopia will have a decentralized network of validators and stakers to govern and secure the platform. There will be no central authority in Gitopia.
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. Unstoppable and Kill switch resistant:
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.
The repositories on Gitopia will be secured by public-key cryptography and thus resistant to unauthorized usage and hacking.
Gitopia source code is open-source on Gitopia and any contributor can come and contribute to building Gitopia with the team.
The source code of Gitopia will be open source, and hence its workflows are out in the open for other developers to inspect.
Users will be stakeholders of Gitopia and all decisions related to Gitopia would be community-centric and driven by the community.
Incentivizing opensource and Web3 will be integrated into the Gitopia workflows. It will be designed to motivate open-source developers to contribute to open-source projects and Web3 actively.
11. Actionable Web3 workflows:
Gitopia offers a wide variety of tailor-made workflows for better development of projects and engaging with the project's contributors. These will include workflows for bounties, proposals, one-click DAO, and actionable licenses.
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.
