  • We're getting some positive attention on HN right now
    You are linking "original Freenet" to a PDF on instead of linking to ? Source: about 1 year ago

    It clashes with the Freenet project Source: about 1 year ago
  • Ask HN: What Are Alternatives to the Internet?
    There's a few abstractions of the web you can use today. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • A player-owned RPG - would you want to participate in such a game?
    Instead of use of Blockchain you could also use Freenet . The only bad thing here data could be lost, but mostly only data is lost when not used. This could be used to auto purge forks that most people dislike. If for example some reason there are multiple alternatives how the story goes some of them will die after a while and removed from system. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Internet Archive Takes Down BBC’s Documentary on PM Modi: Report
    An automatically space balancing solution would be Freenet. Given that it's content addressing, it's possible to push data into it and have it deduplicate automatically. Source: over 1 year ago
  • [Summary] dark web links r/onions
    P.S - There's more networks than just Tor, if you're still interested perhaps you should check them out: r/i2p r/freenet r/zeronet r/yggdrasil r/oxen_io. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Social Media on the Decentralized Web
    Freenet 2 is modernizing the concepts originally developed by Freenet, software that empowers anonymous chatting, file sharing, browsing, and website publishing, pages known as “freesites.” Freenet users contribute a portion of their hard drive and storage bandwidth, creating a decentralized ecosystem that is far less susceptible to malware and other malicious cyberattacks. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Alternatives to Skynet?
    Yes there has been something like this for over 20 years now. It’s called freenet: While it’s not crypto related it allows anyone to insert data onto the network for free. The uploaders and downloaders are anonymous. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Request for some personal advice: How could programming skills contribute to mutualist causes?
    I'd also recommend looking into anything to do with open source, peer-to-peer networks, end-to-end encryption, federation or platform co-operatives. For example: Matrix, Freenet, Cryptpad, Activity Streams, Mastodon, Aether, Scuttlebutt and Resonate. A whole plethora of services from video conferencing to online marketplaces to crowdfunding platforms to streaming platforms can be built using similar principles and... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Record-breaking chip can transmit entire internet's traffic per second. A new photonic chip design has achieved a world record data transmission speed of 1.84 petabits per second, almost twice the global internet traffic per second.
    But we already losing (or have lost) the free internet - a lot of services are quite unusable without login, JS, and adblocker. is also a nice option .. I put a lot of tracking and ad sites in my host file with "::" making them unreachable. In the end there is still Source: over 1 year ago
  • Kanye West is buying ‘free speech platform’ Parler
    Dudes think they might have "free speech" in platform that is owned by someone? Owner always decides what is free and what is not. There is non-owned platforms like or that have no owner, where the users decide what is suitable and what not. There users provide the service to each other and there is no central organization banning users or dictating... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Why the Internet Needs the InterPlanetary File System
    Minus the cryptocurrency part, Freenet has been doing this for 22 years - Source: Hacker News / over 1 year ago
  • Fight for your freedom in computing. Don't let proprietary programs control you
    Freenet has a different looking bunny. Source: over 1 year ago
  • p2p storage solution
    IPFS, Freenet and Zeronet come to mind. But to be honest I don't think any of these are suitable to build a viable alternative to youtube right now, at least not for the vast majority of users. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • 23 years ago I created Freenet, the first distributed, decentralized peer-to-peer network. Today I'm working on Locutus, which will make it easy to create completely decentralized alternatives to today's centralized tech companies. Feedback welcome
    Ease of use has always been the limitation for decentralized applications, as it was for the original Freenet. With Locutus, you install it like any other app and then the decentralized apps themselves are distributed through Locutus - so only one install is required. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Discontinuation of the Vanced project
    Step 2: Move further development work to something like IPFS,,,, or; contribute anonymously. Source: about 2 years ago
  • Copy-pasta backup (How to access)
    But it doesn't stop here. The darkweb encompasses more than just Tor's onion services. You could also download I2P, Freenet, Zeronet, Lokinet, or Yggdrasil to access their respective sites and communities. I haven't used these networks much, so I can only refer you to their subs: r/i2p, r/freenet, r/zeronet, r/oxen_io, r/yggdrasil. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Uncensorable, immutable microblogging platform that is completely decentralized
    Anyone interested in this field should also check out Freenet, a distributed, encrypted and censor-resistant platform that's been around for 20 years. - Source: Hacker News / over 2 years ago
  • Is the left creating the groundwork for a right wing backlash?
    Decentralized censorship-resistant infrastructure like TOR (The Onion Router), Freenet and more have been in full operation for a very long time now. And they've been rather user-friendly for the last ten years or so. As far as I can tell, that's the only meaningful option for any communication platform which goes beyond cat pics. It can relatively easily be combined and stacked with other decentralized or... Source: over 2 years ago
  • Got a tech question or want to discuss tech? Bi-Weekly /r/Technology Tech Support / General Discussion Thread
    Decentralised platforms are Matrix, Mastodon, Peertube, Freenet, GNUnet and Diaspora. Source: over 2 years ago
  • My mom got scammed out of over 100k and I need help finding any/all available info about a website
    I think I know somewhat what it is but I could be way off base on that. I know just some basics about how block chains work from looking into the free network project and other decentralized file systems that are intended to prevent censorship among other things as similar to a torrent swarm those are hosted on individual machines in pieces and the more popular a site that's hosted on those file systems is the...
