Learn about Proof of Contribution

Proof of Contribution is the novel consensus mechanism of the tea Protocol designed to quantify the impact of all projects across all open-source ecosystems. Proof of Contribution assigns a dynamic score, referred to as a project’s teaRank, based on each open-source project’s impact on the broader open-source ecosystem over time.
This approach supports core software, not just the visible application layer that usually gets the most attention. It allows every dependency involved in a project, from top to bottom, to receive recognition for its contribution.
