ZeroNet is an open source, free and decentralized web platform using Bitcoin cryptography and BitTorrent network.

This has a few very interesting implications, as they put it in their presentation:

  • No hosting costs => The site is served by the visitors in a peer-to-peer fashion
  • It’s impossible to shut down => The site is nowhere because it is everywhere
  • No single point of failure => The site remains online as long as at least 1 peer is serving it
  • Fast and works offline => You can access the site even if your internet is unavailable

I didn’t have time to get an in-depth look for I just stumbled accross the ZeroNet web page, but I’ll definitely try it out soon.

As stated before, we need to work on a redecentralization of the internet, if we want to be able to maintain net neutrality and to overcome the censorship and surveillance that our increaslingly more autoritarian occidental regimes are slowly but surely putting into action.
