Join our OpenCollective
Together with dozens of other backers, you can become a backer or a sponsor on our OpenCollective page. You will also join a monthly newsletter exclusively for backers.
Everything is transparent. The funds are used by our team to work primarily on app development, towards our feature roadmap. The funds are utilized according to our public financial plan and you can see the history of funds and statistics at the bottom of this page . The outcome of our work is seen on GitLab as commits and issues. You can also see the issue board to get a glance on work in progress and current priorities.
The names of top 5 backers (based on total funds donated) are mentioned inside the app in the Thanks screen. This is updated monthly if the top 5 changes.Become a backer
How much money has Manyverse received so far?
Manyverse was publicly launched on September 2018, coinciding with the launch of its Open Collective where backers were able to donate to the project. Manyverse has received some bigger grants in the past, and these have been sometimes distributed to team members performing subprojects for this project. The following chart shows incoming money over the months, separated (by color) per source.
How many hours has the Manyverse team worked?
Since its inception, many hours have been invested into the project without funds , but as grants and donations were received, this enabled development to be funded. The following chart shows in light blue how many hours were invested without funds ("volunteered"), and hour many hours were reimbursed ("worked").
How has the work been distributed?
The following chart shows how many hours each team member or contributor has put into the project.
How has money been distributed?
The sources and destinations of money can be seen in the chart below. On the left (in green) are the sources of project income. In the middle (in light blue) are intermediaries. On the right (in blue) are individuals receiving funds. Note that Open Collective charges three fees (host fee, platform fee, payment processor fee), so it is also a destination of a small percentage of funds. There may be some discrepancies here because of currency conversions, because some funds were received in USD and some received in ETH (during months when its value fluctuated a lot), but the displayed currency is EUR.
How much has each team member earned per hour?
The following chart displays the average hourly rate for each team member who has worked at least once on Manyverse. It's calculated as "total earned" / "total hours worked".
