“Open Source Software (OSS) is by far the most exciting lever + trend for major structural change in technology over the past decade and little has been written about how this works from a data-driven lens: several $X00B+ to $1T+ industries are getting disrupted by OSS (enabled fundamentally by the internet and connectedness — Marc Andreessen aptly describes the internet itself as “the next Silicon Valley”).
Mega-industries getting eaten by OSS: finance/payments (Blockchains), cloud computing (Kubernetes), machine learning/AI (TensorFlow), mobile apps (Android), hardware (RISC-V) + many more.
The implications of all of these realities make OSS an extremely critical macro-trend that cannot be ignored — at a fundamental level.” Open Source Capital Founder and General Partner, Joseph Jacks
As 2018 comes to a close, we are thrilled to announce the final cohort of grantees for the year. The Open Source Software ecosystem developing around the IOTA project continues to grow every day and these are the early building blocks that will form the cornerstones of the Machine Economy built on the IOTA Core protocol in the years to come. We could not be more grateful for the IOTA community’s commitment to continuing to explore, test, innovate and build.
Our final round of grantees for the year includes some of the IOTA Ecosystem’s most prolific developers. These innovators have been developing real world use cases and OSS for the IOTA Ecosystem for many months and we are very happy to support them to scale up their efforts. We wish them the best of luck and are very excited to see the results of their work in the coming year!
