UBITQUITY has open-sourced unanimity!

“What is unanimity?”

unanimity (v1.2) is our open source (MIT License) Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform that integrates the latest web3 capabilities into your applications and environments without any expensive on-premise costs.

- Blockchain Agnostic

- Peer-to-Peer Storage Capable

- Smart Contract Capability

- RESTful API Enabled

- Module Add-Ons Included

“Why did you open-source it?”

Like many start-ups in our position, after four years of maintaining unanimity as closed-sourced proprietary software (from 2018–2022), we’ve decided to focus on our other applications. We are focused on real estate payments (UbitquityPay) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) modules, Non-Fungible Title, and an eventual full software suite for title/escrow, underwriters, and banks (SmartEscrow).

Although unanimity will remain open source, we will still charge for support and development. Unanimity paid legacy support and software development consulting is available on a per-request basis through our Managed Solutions.

“What kind of open source license does unanimity have?”

We at Ubitquity changed the license from proprietary to the MIT license: https://github.com/ubitquity/unanimity/commit/f56063c3e2d8917d3714b0603a076895c338d7d6

“The MIT License is a permissive free software license originating at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the late 1980s. As a permissive license, it puts only very limited restriction on reuse and has, therefore, high license compatibility.” — Wikipedia (Citation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MIT_License)

“How does this benefit Ubitquity?”

A community-driven contribution to unanimity, which is now at version 1.1 will improve the application. A community reviewing and improving the source code will help fix bugs and harden the code against security vulnerabilities/exploits that may exist in unanimity.

Ubitquity will be able to, when appropriate, take pieces of this source code and implement them into our other software applications. In addition, Ubitquity is available for paid legacy support and software development consulting on a per-request basis.

For unanimity paid legacy support and software development inquiries email info@ubitquity.io or visit Managed Solutions page for more information.

Please Note: that we do not offer free support for this product. If you wish to pitch us a solution for contributing to this software application, see our Request For Proposal (RFP) page: https://ubitquity.io/rfp.
