Utopian. io rewards everyone for contributing to the Open Source world. https://utopian.io
A week ago I published my first Contributor Report for the Utopian project on Utopian.io (https://steemit.com/utopian-io/@elear/utopian-my-contribution-to-the-open-source-world). I was able to add quite few useful features and many more are on the way. Keep reading.
What is Utopian?
Utopian.io is a platform that gives everyone the possibility to create a Contributor Report.
A Contributor Report is a Steemit post that will automatically fall under the category "utopian-io", where you can write the latest contributions you made for an Open Source project, be voted and rewarded for that.
Contributions can be anything, from code development to graphic design, documentation, social engagement and more. The one I am writing now is in fact a Contribution Report for the project Utopian itself.
A project is Open Source when its codebase is public. Most of the times Open Source projects can be found on the very famous Github platform. Everyone can contribute to Open Source projects, by programming or with any other useful contribution for the project to grow. Steem blockchain, Steemit and all the technology behind it is in fact Open Source. https://github.com/steemit
The Begin of a New, Shared, Meritocratic Economy
Utopian is the first and only platform that rewards Open Source contributors. The first Contributor Report got almost $250,00 in reward and this is just the begin.
Utopian provides a way for anyone to be rewarded for collaborating on projects from which everyone will benefit immediately.
Imagine a World where you do your best, propose your work to a community which members are more than happy to reward you, MERITOCRATICALLY, since they are also being rewarded for curating the best contribution reports. Well you don't have to imagine it, it exists, it is Utopian.io.
Utopian Wants Early Adopters
There is only one Contributor Report at the moment in Utopian and the one I am writing now would be the second one. If you are interested in writing your own Contributor Report get in touch with me. I am investing my time and my money to help early adopters write their first contribution reports.
Utopian is Free and Open Source
Utopian is totally free and Open Source. https://github.com/utopian-io/utopian.io
Utopian is going to provide a registration process that does not require an entire week (as it is happening on Steemit), since it's very bad for mass adoption. The downside is that registering new users on the Steem blockchain has a cost of 6 STEEM at the moment. Utopian has no budget for such a cost to be covered, so please:

My Latest Contributions
Lets go back to the new features I have added since the last week.
- HTTPS for maximum safety
The entire Utopian website is now using the https protocol. You can only use the secure https protocol. Authentication is also happening under https protocol. Your Steemit credentials are totally safe when used on Utopian.io.
- Create Contributions by browsing Github Repositories
When creating a new Contributor Report you can now link the Github repository you are contributing to.
- Browse Contributions by Github Repository
Utopian.io is now completely integrated with Github. Every Open Source project/repository available on Github is now also available on Utopian.io. You can now browse/filter the contributions by Github project.
- Help Section
A new help section to answer the most common questions. https://utopian.io/help
Next Features - Top Priorities
- Immediate account registration without the long waiting period of the Steemit registration process.
- Split contributor reports in different categories: Ideas - Code contributions - Documentation - Graphic Contributions - Social contributions - Other.
- Better Github integration by providing a way to directly link pull requests - branches - forks etc. in the Contributor Report.
- A way to fund Ideas/Feature requests and to split funds between contributors meritocratically.
- Landing page - new wording - explanatory/emotional video.
