We’ve had enough of digital monopolies and surveillance capitalism. We want an alternative world that works for everyone, just like the original intention of the web and net.

We seek a world of open platforms and protocols with real choices of applications and services for people. We care about privacy, transparency and autonomy. Our tools and organisations should fundamentally be accountable and resilient.

Cool, Juh. What's your involvement with the projects?

ZeroNet interests me more, so I dug into the FAQ. Here's the interesting bits:

It only uses BTC's crypto primitives, but not it's blockchain. I does use namecoin, though. https://zeronet.readthedocs.org/en/latest/faq/#does-zeronet-uses-bitcoins-blockchain

Site addresses *are* wallets, but they recommend against using them that way. https://zeronet.readthedocs.org/en/latest/faq/#can-i-use-the-generated-site-addressprivate-key-to-accept-bitcoin-payments

The sites are static-files hosted with bit-torrent. The sites are addressed by public keys, which are used to sign content manifests for the site. https://zeronet.readthedocs.org/en/latest/faq/#how-does-it-work

Pretty simple to publish, you just create a directory, sign, and push it to the network

They have sample sites that actually look pretty good. And dynamic, hmm, how does that work...

Looks like there's some kind of distributed sql backend? I'm having trouble finding details on that
