Open Source Contribution

We're an open source project, and we welcome the participation of our community to help become us more accessible and transparent. Here are a few ways you can get involved with the project.

The Aion Foundation is a non-profit entity working on open source software. As a result, we're always looking for help from our community. There are an endless number of ways you can contribute to the project but we've outlined a few specific ways to get you started.

Holding Coins

AION Coin holders are owners of a critical piece of the network. AION is an asset used to incentivize miners to power the network, by senders to request their transaction be included in a block, by developers in their smart contracts and in the near future - by bridge operators to power multi-chain events and asset transfer.
