MudBlazor is open-source because we want to include the community in the project and influence what direction we are heading. While MudBlazor is entirely free to use and always will be, we have a lot of contributors and a core team that invests a lot of time into the project.
We want to make sure MudBlazor becomes a financially stable project. That is why we have gone with the crowd-funding concept to invest in infrastructure, possible dev payouts, and potentially full-time devs in the future.
By supporting us, you help secure the continued development and maintenance of MudBlazor, that bugs get fixed, new features get implemented, support for coming versions of .NET and Blazor.
