This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Holo is a community committed to growing a truly peer-to-peer Internet. Holo helps accomplish this by allowing anyone to access distributed applications simply by typing a URL into a web browser. They believe that when everyone can explore the distributed Internet, the Internet will shift, and change the world in powerful ways by empowering individuals, fostering trust, and helping build thriving communities. However, Holo isn’t just good for the world. It’s good for you too. Holo incentivizes you to share your computer’s spare capacity by rewarding you with their secure cryptocurrency — Holo fuel. By pooling together their computing resources they make possible an entire network of distributed apps that are free from centralized, corporate control. By putting that scale of control back into the hands of users, they enable humanity to access entirely new possibilities for how we do economics, governance, medicine, and community.
Holo is human-centered. It leverages solid cryptography and combines proven platforms for managing shared data integrity to bring people together in more powerful and effective ways. Bitcoin and most other cryptocurrencies run on an architecture called blockchain. Blockchain has inspired many to imagine new decentralized ways to organize ourselves and our data. However, these approaches have limited performance and burn massive amounts of computing and electricity. Holo runs on Holochain — a next-generation platform that is more scalable, exponentially faster, far more energy efficient, and 10,000x cheaper than blockchain. By backing this project now, you not only help us launch the Holo network in Spring 2018, but also lay a foundational piece of Holo’s network infrastructure by purchasing one of their HoloPorts, a preconfigured hosting node.
As of December 7th, this project has raised $174,000 of their $200,000 goal. This project has 60 days left to raise the $200,000 or it will not be funded! For a pledge of $99, you will get one HoloPort Nano. For a pledge of $449, you will get one HoloPort.
