Upcoming Events

IPVM Community Call

​IPVM, or the InterPlanetary Virtual Machine, aims to be the easiest, fastest, most secure, and open way to run WebAssembly functions anywhere.

Using content-addressed data, public key infrastructure (PKI), and capabilities, IPVM liberates computation from its dependence on pre-negotiated services and paves the way for interoperability.

Learn more about our progress building Homestar, the first implementation of IPVM.

Tues Oct 24th at 9 AM PDT / 12 PM EDT

UCAN Community Call

User Controlled Authorization Networks (UCANs) are an extension of the popular JSON Web Token format specifically designed to enable ways of authorizing offline-first apps and distributed systems.

At a high level, UCANs are a way of doing authorization (“what you can do”) where users are fully in control. There’s no all-powerful authorization server or server of any kind required. Everything a user can do is captured directly in a key or token and can be sent to anyone who knows how to interpret this format.

Join us as we work towards the release of v1.0.

Thurs Oct 26th at 9 AM PDT / 12 PM EDT
