Ellcrys is a blockchain that allows people around the world to build open, community-owned software products and democratic internet organizations.

Project stage


Detailed description

Ellcrys is on a mission to create a new kind of organization structure that does not only allow for trust-less, leader-less software collaboration, but one that allows open source communities create real, honest businesses that solves real-world problems.

Organizations that can compete with todays centrally administered businesses in terms of efficiency, scalability and impact.

To achieve these goals, we will be relying on the ecosystem that will rise to support and grow the network.


Current web service providers limit organization accounts to only support single owner/admin who is granted unlimited access to add and remove users and manage the account resources. We see this in services like Github, Stripe, Heroku and thousands more.

This kind of account structure cannot work for future decentralized organization where there is no single owner, no leader, no trust and no headquarters. Just people from all over the world working together in an open, trustless, democratic organization structure building centrally or decentrally executed software products.


On Ellcrys, a git repository is the center of all collaborative endeavours. It is an organization. By default, it is multiowned, meaning there is no owner, no leader, no need for trust and no headquarter.

Anyone can fetch its content, push contributions, verify and vote for pull requests and other proposals. A repository can receive payment for service offered or a donation. Contributors can collectively decide a revenue sharing and management model unique to a repository. 


  • Users can create censorshipresistant and highly available git repositories. 
  • Native coin reward for collaboration when pull requests are accepted.
  • Revenue generation model for maintainers and individual developers via paid branches, paid issues and paid tasks.
  • Colony is predominantly finance and government centric. No way to measure effort. Ellcrys is firstly effortcentric. Effort is measurable and trackable via pull requests.
  • Assembly had too much control over a project’s decisions, assets and other processes. Ellcrys completely democratises ownership and governance.
