Xs: code - Monetization platform for open source projects

Xs: codeIn short, it is a new monetization platform for projects of «código abierto» that works by receiving paid subscriptions for access to them in order to collect funds and income, which mostly go to the Developer and another to the Platform.

Xs: code - Introduction

This platform works by allowing developers create a private repository in «GitHub». Which is then connected to the one created within the platform, where a link to a paid version can then be shared. Once there, the users of the platform can contribute the requested funds, which are stored by Xs: code.

Then, Xs: code proceeds to distribute it in the percentages agreed between the developers. Plus the fixed community and herself, who always stays with him 25% as commission.
