The source code for the Hedera network will be open review—meaning that anyone will be able to review the code—but not open source. Open review provides trust and transparency, while inhibiting forking and associated instabilities. The Hedera code will be open for review at the release of Version 1.0, which is expected in 2020. Hedera's SDK, API, mobile wallets, example applications, payment server, node operation software, and more will be open source. We believe it is in the best interest of the Hedera hashgraph community to open source our tools and software to further develop the ecosystem.
