The internet has become increasingly centralized over the past few years, with a handful of companies now controlling the internet infrastructure. This privatization of the public square threatens freedom of speech and democracy.
We're committed to decentralization and freedom of speech on the internet. 23 years ago, we created the original Freenet- the first distributed, decentralized peer-to-peer network. It pioneered technologies like cryptographic contracts and small-world networks and is still under active development today.
Now we're building Locutus. Locutus makes it easy for developers to create and deploy decentralized alternatives to today's centralized tech companies. These decentralized apps will be easy to use, scalable, and secured through cryptography.
