Intelligence X supports Peernet – Founder’s Statement

I am excited to announce Peernet, a decentralized network that allows sharing of data freely without censorship and restrictions. Here is the pitch deck: https://peernet.org/dl/Peernet%20Deck.pdf

Peernet is making quick progress from its inception as I am finalizing the whitepaper and developing the core library. I would like to invite anyone who is interested to participate in whatever capacity possible – whether as a member of the public (brainstorming about the protocol and software), a developer, or an investor. We are about to close the initial Seed Round of € 400,000 which will finance the first version of the Peernet Browser.

Peernet is a completely new way of sharing data. It operates without a central authority and gives back control to its users. Contrary to existing decentralized networks, it will have a native application, the Peernet Browser. This will have a huge positive impact on the user experience. One of the killer features will be its decentralized search engine for easy content discovery.

Almost every day I read about new restrictions on the Internet – whether it is Facebook censoring political content, or YouTube copyright-striking indiscriminately. The incentives of the legacy Silicon Valley companies are often misaligned with the ones of the public, and often work against the individual’s interest. It is time to do something about it. I am excited to be in a position that allows me to not just dream about the future but go out there and implement the technology I envision.

If you are interested in learning more about Peernet, here are the channels:

Yours sincerely,

Adding support for new top-level domains

Published on April 6, 2022 by

We just added support for an additional 152 top-level domains (TLDs), increasing the support to 511 TLDs in total.

While you can start searching for them immediately, it will take some time until our
