Fluree is releasing its core source code under the AGPL open source license. Developers can now pull from and contribute to Fluree on Github, in turn building a new internet ecosystem that promotes data-centric security, traceability, and global interoperability.
Founded in 2016 by co-CEOs Brian Platz and Flip Filipowski, Fluree PBC is a public benefit corporation headquartered in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
The Fluree enterprise data management platform organizes blockchain-secured data in a scalable semantic graph database—establishing a foundational layer of trusted data for connected and intelligent data ecosystems.
"By open sourcing our technology, we reject the status quo practice of locking data up in proprietary format, and instead solidify our commitment to building best-in-class open source solutions to modern data management problems," said Platz. "We are offering enterprises a bridge from vendor lock-in towards a future of complete data ownership, portability, and interoperability.”
The growing communities emerging out of the Web3.0 era can use Fluree to create open source, W3C standards-based applications. Fluree’s key use cases include verifiable credentials, decentralized identifiers, master data management, open data platforms and integrations with public blockchains.
“As a company and technology, Fluree recognizes the importance of community-based innovation," said Filipowski. "We have always embraced the open source mindset and had always planned to include Fluree’s when the time was right. We welcome innovators from every industry to join the Fluree community and build with us.”
