And if your not curious enough and thinking of it as just another application that contributes the Steemit community.

Utopian.io is a platform that is connected with the steem Blockchain. It is a first platform where people are going to get rewards for the contribution's they make in a Open Source Project.
Its similar to steemit website but it cannot be used as a social platform for normal posting. The reward that you're going to get will be only by the contribution to Open Source Project.
What is an Open Source Project?
A project becomes open source when
- Its source code is available to the general public
- Public can use,modify and distribute the project by following the "open source licence" .
So, now public have the power to bring changes to the such project for example adding new feature ,fixing bugs,improving designs and documents, and many other task which is termed as a contributions to that project.
Open source schematics or technique is not limited to software development and coding based projects only we can collaborate with many other sources developed as a open source such as books,recipes,list,and many more.
You can find a lot of open source project in the internet and mainly in GitHub
And one of the awesome feature of Utopian is that you can synchronize your Github account with it.Every user that has synched the Utopian.io account with Github will be able to push contributions in the categories Ideas, Development, Bug Hunting and Documentation directly to the Github feed of the project.
