Have you ever heard of the distributed internet? The idea being that instead of having to rely on a server you share content with other users directly.
Torrents are the most famous example of this. However what if a distributed structure was used not only to share anime and cracked games but also to provide actual websites? Like another internet. What if there could be an internet without servers?
Here are some of the projects related to this I've seen around:>Ipfs: https://ipfs.io/
Slightly improved torrents really. Removes duplicate files in the network. Has ipns, which allows to have a constant link to mutable content -> we can already have static web pages with this>zeronet: https://zeronet.io/
Peer to peer, allows you to have mutable content as ipfs, but also supports having sites updating real-time
. But most importantly it allows you to have websites where other people than the site owner can post content, which means you can have sites such as youtube, forums, imageboards, twitter (hopefully not. Jk they already have a thing similar to it). All without servers. Noice
. It also has tor integration.>freenet: https://freenetproject.org/
Again peer to peer, allows for websites and for user-content sites too (it says it has forums). Citing them:>Communications by Freenet nodes are encrypted and are routed through other nodes to make it extremely difficult to determine who is requesting the information and what its content is.
Also has some functionality to hide that you are using freenet called "darknet". Seems similar to zeronet except more concerned with security and anonymity
