What can you do with it?


  • Build decentralized storage and sharing applications. See Textile Photos.
  • Build better ways for users to manage their private information. See AirSecure.
  • Build chat apps, website publishing services, health apps, family tools, and more. Got an idea, get in touch.


  • Choose or federate your own backup and service peer (cafes) and still participate in the whole network.
