Fission: Building protocols for the future of the internet
Cloud native stacks won't deliver the future
We're building the data, auth & 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.
Fission's first Fission Reactor research updates community call, introducing Quinn Wilton giving a first look at Dialog, a far edge database for local-first apps.
This post introduces UCAN verification with concrete examples that will show you how UCANs are validated, how UCAN delegation works and what capability delegation semantics are.
Brooklyn Zelenka gave a talk titled Web3 for Fun & Profit: Agency, Openness, Re-decentralization at CascadiaJS 2021.
