We are a worldwide, inclusive community effort, which welcomes and rewards those who contribute.

With Verus, we introduce digital tools to enable us all to build a better world together. We will monetarily incentivize – with our technologies – behavior that strengthens communities and institutions. This is the thing that’s missing in the online world today: Fiscal incentive for communal behavior built into the very fabric of its function.

We will maintain our development as an open source project and contribute back to the broader open source community, as we leverage the contributions of others that have made it possible for us to begin realizing our vision as a community.
