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.

IPFS Thing: Breaking Down the Interplanetary Virtual Machine IPFS Thing: Breaking Down the Interplanetary Virtual Machine

This summer Fission attended IPFS Thing, a week-long gathering in Reykjavik, Iceland for the IPFS implementors community. During the event, CTO Brooklyn Zelenka gave a presentation on the Interplanetary Virtual Machine (IPVM). Let's break down how the IPVM could work and its benefits.

Enabling IPFS Encrypted Storage for any Blockchain Account with WalletAuth Enabling IPFS Encrypted Storage for any Blockchain Account with WalletAuth

Last week at Dappcon, Fission demoed the newest feature for WebNative SDK - WalletAuth. WalletAuth makes it possible for users to connect to WebNative-enabled apps using only their blockchain address to manage their files.
