ZeroNet

Source: https://github.com/HelloZeroNet/ZeroNet#why

Decentralized websites using Bitcoin crypto and the BitTorrent network – https://zeronet.io

Why?
We believe in open, free, and uncensored network and communication.
No single point of failure: Site remains online so long as at least 1 peer is serving it.
No hosting costs: Sites are served by visitors.
Impossible to shut down: It’s nowhere because it’s everywhere.
Fast and works offline: You can access the site even if Internet is unavailable.

Features
Real-time updated sites
Namecoin .bit domains support
Easy to setup: unpack & run
Clone websites in one click
Password-less BIP32 based authorization: Your account is protected by the same cryptography as your Bitcoin wallet
Built-in SQL server with P2P data synchronization: Allows easier site development and faster page load times
Anonymity: Full Tor network support with .onion hidden services instead of IPv4 addresses
TLS encrypted connections
Automatic uPnP port opening
Plugin for multiuser (openproxy) support
Works with any browser/OS

How does it work?

After starting zeronet.py you will be able to visit zeronet sites using http://127.0.0.1:43110/{zeronet_address} (eg. http://127.0.0.1:43110/1HeLLo4uzjaLetFx6NH3PMwFP3qbRbTf3D).
When you visit a new zeronet site, it tries to find peers using the BitTorrent network so it can download the site files (html, css, js…) from them.
Each visited site is also served by you.
Every site contains a content.json file which holds all other files in a sha512 hash and a signature generated using the site’s private key.
If the site owner (who has the private key for the site address) modifies the site, then he/she signs the new content.json and publishes it to the peers. Afterwards, the peers verify the content.json integrity (using the signature), they download the modified files and publish the new content to other peers.

  1. (派对) 本来就是“宴会、聚会”的意思,从词义上和咱们的聚餐没有本质上的区别。

    西方的派对和咱们聚餐之间的共同点都是为了聚会、交流和快乐,区别还是在于习俗和文化上。

    西方的派对,一般都有明确的主题,生日派对、庆功派对、节日派对、宗教派对、党派派对、外交派对、私人派对、开放派对,甚至葬礼也有派对。

    咱们的聚会更是司空见惯,除了上述的西方派对主题之外,咱们中国人请客吃饭可以有主题,也可以不需要主题,就是楞聚餐,有闲有钱即可。

    从文化的视角来看,西方的派对以娱乐和社交为主要特征,不管什么主题,派对一般具有更加灵活的组织方式和形式,可以在公寓,也可以在大厅,可以在门前草坪,也可以在荒郊野地,既可以围坐餐桌,也可以烧烤自助,有些各种聊天和讨论,还常有不少娱乐小游戏和舞会助兴

  2. Thanks very nice blog!
