Building protocols for the future of the Internet

Fission stack

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.

Current projects

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.

The Edge of Tomorrow The Edge of Tomorrow

The Edge of Tomorrow - Dark Forests, Relativistic Computing, & How to Power a New Internet: Fission co-founder and CTO Brooklyn Zelenka presented a lightning talk at BlueYard's On | Off Chain side event at ETHCC in Paris in July 2022.

The Wallet Stack The Wallet Stack

The word wallet gets used a lot, but is rarely defined. Let's break down the bits of the Wallet Stack and clarify our terms for a better web3 UX.

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.

Help us get to the future faster

Are you struggling at the edge of what's possible?

Do you have an ambitious problem you're having trouble solving?

Do you enjoy Rust? Datalog? The inventoried self? Flippant backronyms?
