Ep. 5 NGI Architects: The Peergos Project

Listen to Episode 5 of Season 1, by clicking here.

In this fifth episode we are talking about the new Peergos project, its progress and contribution to the European Next Generation Internet (NGI) program.

Peergos is a new foundation that is building a more private web, where end users are in control of their data. Peergos is a decentralised protocol and open-source platform for storage, social media and applications. It is designed for privacy and security, and restores ownership and control to the user through seamless access management using quantum-resistant end-to-end encryption.

Imagine having your own private space where you can interact with others safely without coercion or control from external tech giants. Imagine web apps being secure by default and unable to track you. Imagine being able to control exactly what personal data each web app can see. Imagine never having to log in to an app ever again. Peergos considers privacy a fundamental human right and works to make it easy for everyone to interact online in ways that respect this right. The Peergos maintainers Ian and Kevin explain the concept of Peergos and provide a future outlook.


Episode guests:

Ian Preston, Peergos CEO and Founder
