We are overjoyed about the articles coming out about us or including us. Here are some of our favorites:

WTF is Holochain: The Revolution will be Distributed

“Holochain is an energy efficient post-blockchain ledger system and decentralized application platform that uses peer-to-peer networking for processing agent centric agreement and consensus systems between users.”

“Holochain enables any device to have its own chain based ledger system. By using a holographic model for data storage and transfer developers can now create decentralized applications that can scale in multiple dimensions across a network ensuring they are truly distributed. This enables every device on a network to function independently, and only requires the synchronization of data when necessary, or agreed upon by users. This means every user is in control of their own data, and never has to risk their data being sold or exposed to 3rd parties like what just happened with Facebook and Cambridge Analytica.”

Holochain Code Review and Distributed Computing Thoughts

“A lot of production considerations already in. This code is scary good.”

ICO Review: Holochain (HOT)

“Holochain looks promising. It stands out from SONM and DADI in that it will provide high touch (in person basically) training to would-be network developers and pre-seeded its network with presale for its hardware devices. Beyond standing apart from decentralized cloud computing, it’s taking on blockchain itself as a crowning architecture of decentralized computing. If it succeeds, it will be cheaper and faster blockchains in general. Using a Git-like consensus schema allows apps to be standalone (much as how sidechains are to rootchains). With every node not needing to keep a cumulatively, growing ledger it is solving the “expensive storage” cost problem. The concept is unique and sound.”

What Could Come After Blockchain Technology? The What and Why of Holochain

“This next generation of crypto-networks have some parallels to how Einstein uppercut Newton. Rather than spend huge amounts of energy to construct an objective reality, these fledgling networks have a more relativistic perspective. Data is verified locally, rather than through global consensus mechanisms that make a linear, absolute sequence of events.”

“Holochain is not a blockchain. It’s more like “git repositories for each agent which can be published, shared, synchronized or merged via a BitTorrent-like DHT (Distributed Hash Table)”.”

Antifragile: How Holochain Is Going to Take Over the World

“These guys aren’t just bringing you an MVP — they’re bringing you an entire platform, complete with several projects almost ready for deployment.”

“With Holochain, we will finally be able to run our own full, decentralized nodes, have parties communicate with each other in a truly peer to peer format, and have all sorts of new possibilities begin to spring up. Holochain is our virtual Prometheus, taking fire from the gods themselves and giving it for all of humanity to grow and prosper. And isn’t that what decentralization is all about?”

Who are the New Co-op Weavers

“The good news is that there are people working on uniting these groups and they are the new co-op weavers: People like Nathan Schneider and Trebor Scholtz from the Platform Cooperativism movement, Michel Bauwens and all his excellent collaborators at the Peer to Peer Foundation, Fransesca Pick and her fellow connectors at OuiShare, Arthur Brock and the other boffins behind Holo (the new alternative to blockchain), and Pia Mancini and the other hackers and makers behind Democracy.earth. These are just some of the people that are using the warp and the weft of the world wide web to to weave a new fabric for our society.”

Blockchain is Facing a Backlash. Can it Survive?

“Fortunately, there is a new wave of mission-driven blockchain projects conscious about their total social impact. Initiatives like Holochain, Faircoin, Yetta and LocalPay explicitly connect their code base to their social cause.

“Two of the most integral technology projects in this field take a post-blockchain approach. By sharing data and not using a single blockchain, Holochain reduces the energy and time involved, while avoiding being dependent on the decisions of unaccountable groups of computing “miners”, as so many blockchain projects are.”
