CoinGecko to Collaborate with Utopian in Supercharging Open Source Development
The leading cryptocurrency ranking website joins the Utopian VIPO (Very Important Project Owners) Club to help grow its open source contributor community and incentivize contributions to CoinGecko source-code
By: Utopian & CoinGecko
This collaboration aims to help CoinGecko grow the number of contributions made to the company's open source repositories by providing CoinGecko a unique platform to facilitate task execution bounties, as well as access to Utopian's global open source contributor community. As a member of the exclusive Utopian VIPO group, CoinGecko can add their project to Utopian contribution whitelist for spontaneous contributions, and receive professional guidance from the Utopian team in creating task bounties for the Utopian community and own contributor team. With these resources, CoinGecko gets instant and free access to the professional services offered by the Utopian contributor community (such as graphic design, QA, visibility and copywriting)
Diego Pucci, CEO and Founder of Utopian.io: "Utopian was born on a blockchain (Steem), so a collaboration with such a well-known brand and project in the cryptocurrency ecosystem is only natural. We hope that with our support, CoinGecko can accomplish and surpass the goals set for its open source project development and growth. With a community of contributors already familiar with cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies, Utopian is a natural fit for open source projects in the industry looking for independent professional contributors."
TM Lee, CEO & co-founder of CoinGecko said, "We are very excited to partner with Utopian and help propel our open-source efforts further. Our vision is to democratize access to cryptocurrency data and to increase information accessibility. With this partnership, we are confident that our open-source project development can be accelerated for the benefit of the developer community as a whole. Looking forward to engaging with the various talents that the Utopian platform offers and having our volunteers rewarded with STEEM tokens.
