Solving the Nebraska problem
The tea Protocol is on a mission—to solve the Nebraska problem for open-source software developers and maintainers everywhere. If you’re an OSS developer from Nebraska—or anywhere!—maintaining a high-impact OSS project and feeling unrecognized and unrewarded for your important contributions, then tea is built for you.

tea aims to increase the sustainability and security of the software supply chain by rewarding OSS projects based on their impacts in the software ecosystem. At last, the impact of open-source software deep in the tech stack is recognized!
