Code of Conduct

This page outlines how you should govern yourself when participating in the Status community. For more practical tips and suggestions on how to help the project and contribute, please refer to either of these guides, How to grow our Community or Introduction for developers.

The Code of Conduct serves to establish guidelines on how to conduct your behaviour. We are all responsible for maintaining and developing this shared environment.
We want to have a common productive, collaborative and socially responsible space. We hope that all our community members share our views and nurture this spirit and culture in their dealings with the Status community.


Status is about showing respect and humanity for one another: the word itself captures the spirit of social esteem in a human community.

We want to grow a productive and agile place that can welcome new ideas in a complex field. We wish to improve every process in every development cycle and foster collaboration between groups with very different needs, interests and skills.

We gain strength from diversity, and actively seek participation from those who enhance it. This Code of Conduct exists to ensure that diverse groups collaborate to mutual advantage and enjoyment.

This Code of Conduct governs how we behave in public or in private whenever the project will be judged by our actions. We expect it to be honoured by everyone who represents the project officially or informally, claims affiliation with the project, or participates directly.

We strive to:

We invite any- and everybody to participate in any aspect of the project. Our community is open and any responsibility can be carried by any contributor who demonstrates the required commitment, capacity and competence.


Status.im is a Free Software project and the individuals and communities around it are its custodians.

This licence holds the developers to account, in the knowledge that the software is a common trust and that it is a privilege, a responsibility to continue to develop it.
