Pi Network Debuts New PiOS Software Licensing Program Together With Hackathon

PiOS, or the Pi Open Source, software licensing framework encourages developers to create and use open-source applications and tools within the Pi ecosystem. This framework also allows developers to apply and work on other developers’ contributions.

Pi Network Open Source Software License Program

Pi Network debuted its Pi Open Source (PiOS) License program at the hackathon launch to encourage developer collaboration and build its large ecosystem. The initiative enables developers to share their code while building valuable applications on the blockchain.

The protocol’s PiOS license ensures that developers create and utilize open-source applications and tools within the Pi ecosystem. In a press release shared with BSC News, the team stated that the licensing framework would ensure developers collaborate to develop unique applications on Pi Network.

“This unique licensing framework allows community developers to build on the contributions of one another, leveraging crowd wisdom of the large community. By consolidating community developers’ collective knowledge and building efforts, Pi Network aims to facilitate diverse ideations and executions to create a robust ecosystem of apps and utilities for the Pi community members,” the statement read.

The initiative enables developers to build on works created by others. Through the collective effort of developers, Pi Network aims to combine unique ideas to generate a robust ecosystem of valuable applications. One of the founders of Pi Network, Dr. Nicolas Kokkalis, also shared his thoughts about the initiative.

“Since Pi’s inception, we have always encouraged cross-collaboration. Through PiOS we hope to enable developers who wish to share their codebase with the community to do so, and also invite contributions to their code from other community developers,” said Dr. Nicolas Kokkalis. “Our hope is that by allowing Pi Community Developers to create open source applications and tools for the Pi Ecosystem, the community will continue to flourish and encourage others to build as well.”

Developers have access to the code repository licensed by other Pi community developers under the PiOS license. Further, developers receive Pi rewards as encouragement for contributing their code to the repository and making their work available to one another.

The Pi hackathon commenced on January 9th and will end on February 28th. The event invites participants to build apps across three themes: Social Media, GameFi/Entertainment, and Consumer Utilities. As of publication, over 4200 participants have registered for the event. BSC News has an article HERE for users interested in building on the blockchain.
