NextGraph

Interlinked data graphs, with privacy, security, data locality, and interoperability in mind

NextGraph brings about the convergence between P2P and Semantic Web technologies, towards a decentralized, secure and privacy-preserving cloud, based on CRDTs. This open source ecosystem provides solutions for end-users and software developers alike, wishing to use or create decentralized apps featuring: live collaboration on rich-text documents, peer to peer communication with end-to-end encryption, offline-first, local-first, portable and interoperable data, total ownership of data and software, security and privacy. Centered on repositories containing semantic data (RDF), rich text, and structured data formats like JSON, synced between peers belonging to permissioned groups of users, it offers strong eventual consistency, thanks to the use of operation-based CRDTs. Documents can be linked together, signed, shared securely, queried using the SPARQL language and organized into sites and containers. Long-term goals include developing or integrating wikis, knowledge bases, search engines, groupware, productivity tools, supply chain solutions, marketplaces and e-commerce solutions, social networks, smart contracts and DAOs. With NextGraph, users can now create and access freely their own interlinked data graphs, while preserving privacy, security, data locality, and interoperability.
