Quick summary

Fluence protocol aims to empower internet applications with interoperability, resilience, and security. Fluence makes it possible to publish, run, compose, and monetize applications without intermediaries or central servers.

  • Fluence is an open runtime for internet applications. A purely peer-to-peer architecture allows to build distributed applications without reliance on centralized platforms. Fluence incorporates concepts of Web of Trust, DPKI, S/Kademlia, and is built with libp2p and WebAssembly.
  • Fluence is a business model for the open source. Fluence enables the blockchain-based software licensing system, allowing authors to earn income from their applications usage over the protocol. The infrastructure maintenance is outsourced to the open market of compute providers via the Open Source as a Service (OSaaS) model.
