So days ago I was just reading around my various feeds, then caught up with a blog by @oracle-d to support @utopian-io’s indiegogo campaign. I was eager to now more about @utopian-io and spent days reading about them and all that they do.
I realized that Utopian is a project owned by Diego Pucci and the aims of this project is to launch the open source ecosystem into the next phase of its evolution thus, a new age where all digital professionals are welcome to contribute to open source innovation, and communities can support projects through collective financing.
Over a year of learning and experimentation in incentivising contributions to thousands of open source, repositories has helped utopian discover what an open source ecosystem truly needs to encourage innovation. And with the knowledge utopian had, a dedicated team, and your support, they started building Utopian Colony. An approximate of $35,000 has been raised in the next 30 days to release the beta version of Utopian Colony.
The Story Behind Utopian
In steptember, 2017,Utopian was founded as a proof-of-concept platform on the Steem blockchain to explore the needs of projects and contributors in the open source ecosystem. This initiative attracted a community of contributors from all digital professions, as well as open source projects looking to connect with these contributors.
Utopian have been able to motivate professionals from all fields to provide content and services to innovative open source initiatives and projects by facilitating the distribution of incentives to the contributor community.
Since the existence of the project, Utopian has supported over 5,000 contributors who have made over 70,000 contributions to over 9,000 open source repositories. Wooaw isn’t that great!

One of the many things Utopian saw was the need to operating the proof-of-concept (also known as Utopian v1). They realized there were more ways to connect developers to a digital open source projects, in the areas of writers, translators, graphic artists and others. Utopian saw there were no links to connect network to the open source ecosystem. Utopian then began its evolution from a prototype to a full-featured solution to serve the needs of the open source ecosystem and community.
In May, 2018, the proof-of-concept, Utopian v1, was obsolescent, and continued to maintain operations with their dedicated users through various partner apps. They then turned their focus on designing Utopian Colony - the scalable full featured collaboration platform.
