This blog is from my random thoughts collection.
Just imagine what would happen if you are getting paid for your source code contribution. Na na na..! Not for any rubbish feature you add, but for the feature which is getting viral and used by most people of the main repo.
For this to happen the main source code in the should be generating the revenue wherever it’s used. And that generated revenue should be split to the key feature which is making the people to buy that repo. A mechanism to identify which feature is most used, most used feature is the selling-point. Based on feature usage, money can be split-up and paid to the right contributed persons.
So, are you ready to fork a repo, and add some feature to start earning..? 🤔
