A bluetooth router and design system enabling decentralized internet access. Powered by the IOTA cryptocurrency and Bluetooth.
The Fognet router works together with phones and laptops in the area to distribute data with little or no internet access. When a primary node has access to the internet, it can share its connection with others. With no internet connection, devices can share cached and local data.
The IOTA distributed ledger can be used to publish secure streams of data, and and control who has permission to subscribe to these streams. Along with IOTA micro-transactions and encryption, this will enable a new era of peer-to-peer business models.
The Fognet operating system will allow anyone to build a website and serve it to the network. Fognet sites will be distributed as small JSON configuration files rather than as HTML, reducing load time. We are creating a component-based design framework to enable fast development on the Fognet stack.
Fognet is an open source project designed to provide internet access to all. Contribute to the project on Github or get in touch to help with something else.
