Textile provides encrypted, recoverable, schema-based, and cross-application data storage built on IPFS and libp2p. We like to think of it as a decentralized data wallet with built-in protocols for sharing and recovery, or more simply, an open and programmable iCloud.
We believe that future technology can be built around a new model of data ownership where individuals have total agency over the information they create.
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.
