Holochain is an open-source data-integrity engine that enables the self-hosting of P2P apps on a distributed web with user autonomy built directly into its architecture and protocols. Holochain avoids the need for global consensus and aims for massive scalability, as well as user-control of identity and data. Distributing the storage and processing of this information can change how people coordinate and interact and gives back control on digital integration.
