Usher, the partnerships platform that enables brands to incentivize a partner network to drive action to their web/mobile app, backend services, smart contracts, or social pages, is excited to announce the release of its core technology as open source. This move will allow brands to deploy Usher to manage their own private partner network, for marketing agencies to deploy and onboard their influencer network, or for brands to invite their Discord communities to become affiliate partners.
In addition to the benefits of Usher’s platform, the release of the core technology as open source provides even more benefits for users. Here are a few:
Cost Savings: Open-source software is often available for free or at a lower cost than proprietary software. This can be especially beneficial for startups or smaller organizations that may not have the budget for expensive software solutions.
Flexibility: Open-source software can be modified and customized to meet specific needs or requirements. This allows organizations to tailor the software to their unique workflows and processes.
Collaboration: Open-source software encourages collaboration among developers and users. This can lead to a community of contributors who work together to improve the software and provide support to one another.
Transparency: Open-source software is often more transparent than proprietary software. Users have access to the source code, which allows them to see how the software works and identify any potential security vulnerabilities.
Innovation: Open-source software can foster innovation by allowing developers to build upon existing solutions and create new tools and applications. This can lead to the development of new technologies and advancements in various fields.
By releasing the core technology as open source, Usher hopes to encourage innovation and collaboration within the developer community. Users will be able to customize the software to their specific needs and contribute to the ongoing development and improvement of the platform.
“We’re thrilled to release the core technology of Usher as open source,” said Ryan Soury (@ryan_soury), Founder of Usher. “We believe that open source technology can drive innovation and collaboration, and we’re excited to see how the developer community will use and improve upon our platform.”
The open-source release of Usher’s core technology is now available on GitHub. Users can access the source code, contribute to the platform’s development, and customize the software to their specific needs. Usher looks forward to seeing the impact of the open-source release on the development of partnerships and marketing initiatives.
