Is Exodus open source?
Although Exodus is built on many open source components, there are components of Exodus that are not open source.
Exodus publishes the open source work used in the Exodus wallet on Github under the official company name "Exodus Movement". Individuals can view the source code, history, and continually published updates by visiting https://github.com/exodusmovement.
Why isn't Exodus open source?
Exodus as a company has put a lot of time and work into producing our designs, animations and overall user experience and want to continue doing so for a very long time to offer the best user experience for holding crypto assets. Open-sourcing all aspects of the product including the design and user interface elements make it very easy for others to copy the work or even worse for hackers to make fake, malicious, phishing versions of Exodus to try to pass them off as official downloads with the goal of stealing individual funds.
How does Exodus contribute to open source projects?
In addition to publishing our own open source code and libraries, Exodus also sponsors individuals to work in open source development. Exodus believes paying open source developers to continue contributing useful core components is a grassroots effort to spread not only the benefits of open source but to help the global digital asset community as a whole.
JP Richardson, a co-founder of Exodus, is fanatical about open source and has also contributed over 200 open source NPM packages to the community.
