GUN - A realtime, decentralized, offline-first, graph database engine

  •        1987

GUN is a realtime, distributed, offline-first, graph database engine. Lightweight and powerful. GUN does state synchronization out of the box. It is peer-to-peer by design, meaning you have no centralized database server to maintain. It has offline support, works even without internet. Users can save data offline and when when the network comes back online GUN will automatically synchronize the data.

GUN is a data­base en­gine that runs every­where JavaScript does — browsers, mo­bile de­vices and servers, al­low­ing you to build ex­act­ly the data sys­tem you want. GUN's se­cu­ri­ty mod­ule is built on strong en­cryp­tion stan­dards and works com­plete­ly de­cen­tral­ized. In oth­er words — real pri­va­cy with no sin­gle point of fail­ure.

orbit-db - Peer-to-Peer Databases for the Decentralized Web

  •    Javascript

OrbitDB is a serverless, distributed, peer-to-peer database. OrbitDB uses IPFS as its data storage and IPFS Pubsub to automatically sync databases with peers. It's an eventually consistent database that uses CRDTs for conflict-free database merges making OrbitDB an excellent choice for decentralized apps (dApps), blockchain applications and offline-first web applications.

YaCy - Decentralized Web Search

  •    Java

YaCy (read "ya see") is a free distributed search engine, built on principles of peer-to-peer (P2P) networks. It is distributed on several hundred computers so-called YaCy-peers. Each YaCy-peer independently crawls through the Internet, analyzes and indexes found web pages, and stores indexing results in a common database which is shared with other YaCy-peers using principles of P2P networks.

lbry-sdk - The LBRY SDK for building decentralized, censorship resistant, monetized, digital content apps

  •    Python

LBRY is a decentralized peer-to-peer protocol for publishing and accessing digital content. It utilizes the LBRY blockchain as a global namespace and database of digital content. Blockchain entries contain searchable content metadata, identities, rights and access rules. LBRY also provides a data network that consists of peers (seeders) uploading and downloading data from other peers, possibly in exchange for payments, as well as a distributed hash table used by peers to discover other peers. Our releases page contains pre-built binaries of the latest release, pre-releases, and past releases for macOS, Debian-based Linux, and Windows. Automated travis builds are also available for testing.

cryptosphere - Encrypted peer-to-peer web application platform for decentralized, privacy-preserving applications

  •    Ruby

The Cryptosphere is a global peer-to-peer cryptosystem for publishing and securely distributing content pseudonymously with no central point of failure. The system is openly federated and anyone can join. To ensure quality service and prevent abuse, the Cryptosphere uses an integrated cryptographically secure reputation system which provides a distributed web of trust. There are several systems with similar goals to the Cryptosphere, such as MNet, Freenet, and Tahoe-LAFS. These systems serve as inspiration for the Cryptosphere's design. The Cryptosphere is also heavily influenced by Git, the distributed version control system.

CacheP2P - "More users = More capacity"

  •    Javascript

CacheP2P is a highly distributed cache platform based on WebTorrent and runs only in the browser. It is a javascript library that once included in a website, makes every new user a mirror of the specific URL he has opened and allows it to serve it to all the other users that also are accessing the same website, so the website's server doesn't have to.

catena - Catena is a distributed database based on a blockchain, accessible using SQL.

  •    Swift

Catena is a distributed database based on a blockchain, accessible using SQL. Catena timestamps database transactions (SQL) in a decentralized way between nodes that do not or cannot trust each other, while enforcing modification permissions ('grants') that were agreed upon earlier. A Catena blockchain contains SQL transactions that, when executed in order, lead to the agreed-upon state of the database. The transactions are automatically replicated to, validated by, and replayed on participating clients. A Catena database can be connected to by client applications using the PostgreSQL wire protocol (pq).

swarm - swarm docs

  •    Makefile

Swarm is a distributed storage platform and content distribution service, a native base layer service of the ethereum web 3 stack. The primary objective of Swarm is to provide a sufficiently decentralized and redundant store of Ethereum's public record, in particular to store and distribute Đapp code and data as well as block chain data. From an economic point of view, it allows participants to efficiently pool their storage and bandwidth resources in order to provide the aforementioned services to all participants. From the end user's perspective, Swarm is not that different from WWW, except that uploads are not to a specific server. The objective is to peer-to-peer storage and serving solution that is DDOS-resistant, zero-downtime, fault-tolerant and censorship-resistant as well as self-sustaining due to a built-in incentive system which uses peer to peer accounting and allows trading resources for payment. Swarm is designed to deeply integrate with the devp2p multiprotocol network layer of Ethereum as well as with the Ethereum blockchain for domain name resolution, service payments and content availability insurance.

hyperledger - Hyperledger Project is a new Collaborative Project at The Linux Foundation


Hyperledger is an open source collaborative effort created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. It is a global collaboration including leaders in finance, banking, Internet of Things, supply chains, manufacturing and Technology. The Linux Foundation hosts Hyperledger under the foundation. Not since the Web itself has a technology promised broader and more fundamental revolution than blockchain technology. A blockchain is a peer-to-peer distributed ledger forged by consensus, combined with a system for “smart contracts” and other assistive technologies. Together these can be used to build a new generation of transactional applications that establishes trust, accountability and transparency at their core, while streamlining business processes and legal constraints. Think of it as an operating system for marketplaces, data-sharing networks, micro-currencies, and decentralized digital communities. It has the potential to vastly reduce the cost and complexity of getting things done in the real world. Only an Open Source, collaborative software development approach can ensure the transparency, longevity, interoperability and support required to bring blockchain technologies forward to mainstream commercial adoption. That is what Hyperledger is about – communities of software developers building blockchain frameworks and platforms.
