DescriptionThe Open Source Development Economy Dystem seeks to drive open source economy by empowering communities to manage change, commission work and reward developers. By using a custom built voting system and a suite of on-blockchain tools, dystem allows the community to work together to decide direction, incentivise requirements and reward those who deliver. The Dystem blockchain forms the basis of our product as it enables decentralised transfer of value, an immutable record of history and cryptographically secure adjudication. This gives us a robust autonomous platform on which to deliver our core technology. Our core technology layer will be available as an integration between the Dystem blockchain and well known pre-existing development and collaboration platforms such as Github, Slack and Discord. This integration will facilitate development in the following keys ways: [Community] Enabling direction of travel / change management to be decided by the community via a democratic blockchain backed voting mechanism. [Incentivising] Enabling required work to be incentivised by individuals/communities by offering incentives in return for work completed. [Rewarding] Enabling compensation for work completed.
