Jelurida Public License

Posted on August 9, 2018

Blacknet source code will be released under JPL.

Jelurida has created a new type of coinleft license, in the spirit of the GNU General Public License, but better suited to protect the interests of open source cryptocurrency projects.

The main idea of the Jelurida Public License (JPL) is not only to ensure that the source code of any work based on a work released under this license remains open, and remains released under the same license, but also to make sure that the community of the original blockchain token holders also receives back some of the new token value created by any such derivative projects, if those have opted to create their own blockchain instead of using the blockchain instance for which the original software is being developed. This is achieved by the JPL airdrop requirement of Article 3.4.1 of the General Conditions.
