This edition of the Social Block might just be slightly more interesting for those who code.

Magy sat down with Max Howell, creator of Homebrew and CEO of tea.xyz – a decentralized technology protocol that enables open-source software (OSS) developers to be rewarded for their software contributions.

The topic of the conversation? The interplay between OSS and blockchain, of course. Even if you’re not a developer (which Magy, for one, most certainly is not), the episode has plenty for listeners of all backgrounds, so tune in.

Episode #7: OSS & Blockchain: Communities & Progress

Magy and Max break down the connection between open-source software and blockchain, digging into the nuts and bolts of how community-led software development has been the linchpin in the innovation and ethos of many chains and decentralized ecosystems. In this episode:

🤑How blockchain can change the way open-source devs are compensated for their work.

🐝Why the “hive mind” community thinking inherent in OSS skyrockets progress in blockchain.

🌱How open source and blockchain developers’ non-financial impetus for creating software has shaped the decentralized ethos of our space.
