Scuttlebutt

Scuttlebutt

Scuttlebutt is a social network with no servers. All your data is stored on your own computer or phone, and you can use it offline.

There’s a mobile app for ScuttleButt called Manyverse and a desktop app called Patchwork. Some parts of it are still in development, so it can be tricky to use.


InterPlanetary File System

InterPlanetary File System

IPFS is a decentralized network for storing and sharing data online. Instead of custom URLs, files are automatically addressed based on their content and served by their users.

Currently, most websites depend on central servers. Therefore, content tends to be slow-loading, proprietary and short-lived. IPFS “seeks to connect all computing devices with the same system of files” to ease discovering, spreading and archiving of content.
