COSS Weekly #166

Here's the one-hundred sixty-sixth issue of COSS Weekly, the global commercial open source (COSS) company category newsletter, brought to you every weekend by the team at OSS Capital, creators and stewards of COSS Community and Open Core Summit.

We deliver only the most fresh πŸ˜‹ news from the previous week in COSS across: Funding, Content, Jobs, Liquidity and $COSS (Public Markets).

Last week saw $25M in funding announcements from OSS Capital, major milestones from OpenBB and AppFlowy, and more!


πŸ’° COSS Funding: $25M

  • JJ β€” oss/acc: "NEWS: @OSSCapital is committing $25M to invest exclusively in the Bittensor ecosystem. We believe Bittensor represents the most vibrant community and network focused on accelerating decentralized and truly open AI for all. This capital will be allocated across open source grants, startups, validator initiation, subnet creation + scaling, staking across the community, accumulating and holding $TAO in size over very long timeframes (10+ years) and more. If you are a world-class developer working in open source / crypto and want to collaborate with us, my DMs are open." Link

  • JJ β€” oss/acc: "So @OSSCapital has already invested well into the eight figures in @LiquidAI_ and Bittensor over the last 7 months alone. I'm paying attention to this. Are you?" Link

  • JJ β€” oss/acc: "As all software gradually gets reimagined toward neural net based computation, the TAM of services that will eventually run natively and by default on Bittensor starts to look ... really big." Link

  • JJ β€” oss/acc: "The future is at the intersection of AI and crypto. The future is Bittensor." Link

  • Sami Kassab: "The open source AI community is embracing Bittensor. In the last 24 hours: - Huggingface CEO mentions amplifying Bittensor - @NousResearch launches a fine-tuning subnet Crypto x AI is happening" Link
