PeachCloud 🍑 ☁️

PeachCloud is an open-source platform for deploying and maintaining peer-to-peer communication networks. With Secure Scuttlebutt (SSB) at its core, it has been designed to lower the barrier to entry for users to collectively own and operate their own decentralised infrastructure. The system has been designed to run reliably on single-board computers, making it an ideal low-emissions platform for rural areas, disaster zones and off-grid communities.

We welcome your support on our OpenCollective!
