What is Community OS?
The Community OS is a blockchain-native Operating System, integrating the values of our ecosystem__Open Source, Connectedness, Sense of Belonging, Autonomy, and Purpose__in a way that facilitates the adoption of Web3 apps with relevant and real use case application in the context of Communities. The OS can be modified and distributed by anyone around the world and it is meant to provide value to any type of Community. It can evolve to be many different versions, and represents a category of the “under construction” set of Community - Ecosystem Resources NEAR is developing.
