About


We build the foundational tools for creating collaborative applications.

The y-collective is administrated by maintainers of popular open-source projects. We distribute funding among us and active contributors in this space to maintain and advance our software.

We make the distribution of the collected funding publicly available. Approved maintainers can charge up to 100$/h for their work as long as there is funding to distribute.

If you want a certain project to be successful, please contribute to our efforts by either funding the y-collective or each project individually.
