Blockstack is a new internet for decentralized apps that you access through the Blockstack Browser.

Blockstack is a new internet for decentralized apps that you access through the Blockstack Browser. With Blockstack, there is a new world of apps that let you own your data and maintain your privacy, security and freedom.

We are an open-source project with core developers and contributors located around the world, from New York City to Hong Kong. We believe the community is one of our greatest assets, and the team engages with users via Slack, Github, Twitter, and the Blockstack Forum in order to build the best product possible.

Blockstack uses the lower layers of the traditional internet and focuses on decentralizing the application layer. Blockstack provides key tools and infrastructure to developers enabling decentralized storage and decentralized authentication & identity. Developers build single-page applications in JavaScript then plug into user-run APIs, which eliminates centralized points of control. Users run decentralized apps through the Blockstack browser and give explicit read/write permissions to their data. Information is encrypted and stored on users’ personal devices. There are no middlemen, no passwords, and no massive data silos to breach.

Get started by installing the Blockstack Browser (available for Mac, Windows, Linux, and as a web app). https://blockstack.org/install/
