A peer-to-peer internet router and design system enabling decentralized web access. Powered by the IOTA cryptocurrency.
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.
“As someone who has advocated for IOTA as a solution for decentralized ISP for a few years, I am so happy to finally see some tangible steps in this direction.”David Sønstebø • Co-Founder of IOTA
