Cloud native stacks won't deliver the future

We're building the identity, data & compute primitives that enable true local-first edge applications. But we don’t get to the future alone. Our edge computing stack is already embedded into leading protocols, platforms and products.

Protocol Labs: making decentralized storage resilient

Protocol Labs pioneered decentralized storage with the introduction of IPFS. Our WebNative File System brings encrypted-at-rest storage and multi-player capabilities to the protocol. We collaborate with Protocol Labs and other key partners to enhance the IPFS and Filecoin ecosystem.

UCANs: decentralized authorization

UCANs extend JWTs to enable distributed identity (DIDs) and authorization in local-first apps & distributed systems. They make passwordless interop between apps trustless & simple—like OAuth but small, light and decentralized. They have been adopted by NFT.Storage & Bluesky.

WebNative SDK: a true local-first edge computing stack

The WebNative SDK empowers developers to build fully distributed web applications without needing a complex back-end. WebNative applications work offline and store data encrypted for the user by leveraging UCANs, IPFS and the power of the web platform.

CoD Summit 2022: Decentralized Authentication CoD Summit 2022: Decentralized Authentication

At the 2022 Compute Over Data Summit, Fission's co-founder and CTO Brooklyn Zelenka gives a presentation on how UCANs help enable computation in distributed systems.
