The evolution of Blockchain introduces the first cryptocurrency and continues to attract public attention. Being an open-source project, disagreements among development communities often lead to the loss of committers. The projects always in-search for a new committer to spur innovation but come with hard fork risk. Prior promotion models are based on the developer’s technical activities. However, there is a lack of academic research that investigates developer commitment. Drawing literature from open-source projects, such as Mozilla, Apache and Social Cognitive Theory, this paper proposes a model that integrate SCT constructs and Blockchain decentralization to examine the factors that influence developer commitment in cryptocurrency project. This study proposes a quantitative approach by collecting data from online survey to evaluate the proposed model using partial least square structural equation modelling (PLS-SEM). This paper is expected to be a valuable contribution to project leaders and community to identify committed developer and antecedent factors.
