I tend to develop my project as Opensource but to want to know more how to make money and benefit all contributors as a community of developers not just develop it in a free time. Any suggestions or other ideas?

I like the idea.
Rewarding contributors can be a good thing but I imagine that this is hard to accomplish so everyone gets something they can use.
For example giving out digital ocean credits must not be of use to everyone.
Building a company around it and hiring developers would be one way which assumes you make profit of the software / service.

I have no other clue on how to reward contributors properly at the moment sorry :(
