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 Reactor: Dialog First Look Fission Reactor: Dialog First Look

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.

Verifying UCANs Verifying UCANs

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.
