Open Source News

Open source software is a type of software that has its source code released and available to study, change and distribute freely. Some famous examples of open-source software are the Linux operating systems, Mozilla Firefox, Wikipedia and many others. Open source development is widely used in blockchain projects. Bitcoin’s opensource code became a role model for future generations of digital money. Most of the major cryptocurrencies, such as Litecoin and Ethereum, have open source code. Open source projects are also popular in blockchain-related products like open source wallets and blockchain explorers. Open source projects have an increased development speed since anyone interested in the product can add some useful extensions and promote those products to a wider audience.
