Sia - Your decentralized private cloud

  •    Go

Sia is a new decentralized cloud storage platform that radically alters the landscape of cloud storage. By leveraging smart contracts, client-side encryption, and sophisticated redundancy (via Reed-Solomon codes), Sia allows users to safely store their data with hosts that they do not know or trust. The result is a cloud storage marketplace where hosts compete to offer the best service at the lowest price. And since there is no barrier to entry for hosts, anyone with spare storage capacity can join the network and start making money.

  •    Python

blockstack-core is the reference implementation of the Blockstack protocol.Blockstack is a new decentralized internet where you own your data and your apps run locally without remote servers.




peer-tweet - Decentralized feeds using BitTorrent's DHT

  •    Javascript

BitTorrent's DHT is probably one of the most resilient and censorship-resistant networks on the internet. PeerTweet uses this network to allow users to broadcast tweets to anyone who is listening. When you start PeerTweet, it generates a hash @33cwte8iwWn7uhtj9MKCs4q5Ax7B which is similar to your Twitter username (ex. @lmatteis). The difference is that you have entire control over what can be posted because only you own the private key associated with such address. Furthermore, thanks to the DHT, what you post cannot be stopped by any government or institution. Once you find other PeerTweet addresses you trust (and are not spam), you can follow them. This configures your client to store this user's tweets and broadcasts them to the DHT every once in a while to keep their feed alive. This cooperation of following accounts, allows for feeds to stay alive in the DHT network. The PeerTweet protocol also publishes your actions such as I just followed @919c.. or I just liked @9139.. and I just retweeted @5789... This allows the possibility for new users to find other addresses they can trust; if I trust the user @6749.. and they're following @9801.., then perhaps I can mark @9801.. as not spam. This idea of publicly tweeting about your actions also allows for powerful future crawling analysis of this social graph.

Diaspora - Distributed and contextual social networking

  •    Ruby

Diaspora is distributed and contextual social networking. It is decentralized and provides freedom and privacy. Instead of everyone’s data being held on huge central servers owned by a large organization, diaspora* exists on independently run servers (“pods”) all over the world. You choose which pod to register with, and you can then connect seamlessly with the diaspora* community worldwide.

dat - :floppy_disk: Share & live sync files anywhere via command line

  •    Javascript

A distributed data community. Dat is a nonprofit-backed community & open protocol for building apps of the future. Use Dat command line to share files with version control, back up data to servers, browse remote files on demand, and automate long-term data preservation.


patchwork - A decentralized messaging and sharing app built on top of Secure Scuttlebutt (SSB).

  •    Javascript

In order to gossip outside your local network, you'll need to connect to a Pub. You can find an invite to an available pub at the Pub servers registry.

s3git - s3git: git for Cloud Storage

  •    Go

s3git is a simple CLI tool that allows you to create a distributed, decentralized and versioned repository. It scales limitlessly to 100s of millions of files and PBs of storage and stores your data safely in S3. Yet huge repos can be cloned on the SSD of your laptop for making local changes, committing and pushing back. Exactly like git, s3git does not require any server-side components, just download and run the executable. It imports the golang package s3git-go that can be used from other applications as well. Or see the Python module or Ruby gem.

Lbry - A fully decentralized network for distributing data

  •    Python

LBRY is a protocol that provides a fully decentralized network for the discovery, distribution, and payment of data. It utilizes the LBRY blockchain as a global namespace and database of digital content. Blockchain entries contain searchable content metadata, identities, and rights and access rules. It also provides a data network consists of peers uploading and downloading data from other peers, possibly in exchange for payments, and a distributed hash table, used by peers to discover other peers.

Rippled - Decentralized cryptocurrency blockchain daemon implementing the XRP Ledger in C++

  •    C++

Ripple is a network of computers which use the Ripple consensus algorithm to atomically settle and record transactions on a secure distributed database, the Ripple Consensus Ledger (RCL). Because of its distributed nature, the RCL offers transaction immutability without a central operator. The RCL contains a built-in currency exchange and its path-finding algorithm finds competitive exchange rates across order books and currency pairs.

Zcash - Internet Money

  •    C++

Zcash is an implementation of the "Zerocash" protocol. Based on Bitcoin's code, it intends to offer a far higher standard of privacy through a sophisticated zero-knowledge proving scheme that preserves confidentiality of transaction metadata. Bitcoin and most cryptocurrencies expose your entire payment history to the public. Zcash is the first open, permissionless cryptocurrency that can fully protect the privacy of transactions using zero-knowledge cryptography.

Blockstack - Decentralized DNS for Blockchain Applications

  •    Python

Blockstack is decentralized DNS and identity. With the Blockstack software, a network of computers collectively maintain a global registry of names. When you run a Blockstack node, you join this network, which is more secure by design than traditional DNS systems and identity systems. This is because the system's registry and its records are secured by an underlying blockchain, which is extremely resilient against tampering and control.

PeerTube - Decentralized video streaming platform using P2P (BitTorrent) directly in the web browser with WebTorrent.

  •    TypeScript

PeerTube is a decentralized video streaming platform using P2P (BitTorrent) directly in the web browser with WebTorrent. It is difficult to build a FOSS video streaming alternatives to YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo... with a centralized software. One organization alone cannot have enough money to pay bandwidth and video storage of its server. So there is a need of decentralized network (as Diaspora for example). But it's not enough because one video could become famous and overload the server. It's the reason why P2P protocol is used to limit the server load.

Vertcoin - Decentralized currency owned by its users

  •    C++

Vertcoin is a digital currency that can be sent between people over the internet. Vertcoin (VTC) stays true to the original vision of cryptocurrency: a financial system owned by its users, the people’s coin. Vertcoin is not controlled by large banks or mining hardware manufacturers and can be mined by anyone profitably. Fairly distributed without a premine, ICO or airdrop, Vertcoin is developed by community members working as volunteers and the project is wholly funded by donations. A finite resource similar to gold, you can rest assured that Vertcoin will keep your money safe from vested interests and ensure that transaction fees are proportionate and shared between a large number of miners. With Vertcoin, you can truly be your own bank.

hubzilla - build community websites that can interact with one another

  •    PHP

Hubzilla is a general purpose communication server integrated with a web publishing system and a decentralised permission system. If this sounds like a bunch of technical mumbo-jumbo to you, just think of it as an independent platform for sharing stuff online (publicly or privately). Hubzilla contains some social network bits, some cloud storage bits, some blog and forum bits, and some content management bits. These are all integrated within a common privacy framework - and it is all decentralised.

sit - Serverless (offline-first, merge-friendly) Information Tracker

  •    Rust

SIT is a compact tool that helps tracking and sharing information between people and systems in a decentralized, sporadically-online environment (aka "the real world"). Its goal is to lower the barrier for recording, querying and sharing information independently. Instead of having to setup and maintain a server and a database, or having to rely on services of an external third party, SIT is a self-contained binary for Linux, OS X and Windows that typically works on the end-user's computer. SIT's medium of record is files. No external database is required.
