We believe Holochain will enable new collaborative patterns and bring a thrivable social-coherence to many domains around the world.
About the Holochain Foundation
Holochain’s mission is to support and embody social coherence through computing frameworks that enable collective intelligence and collaboration among peers. Initially, this is being accomplished through the innovative P2P architecture of Holochain, and the unique open-source model of the Cryptographic Autonomy License, which holds for the rights of end-users in addition to the developer stakeholders.
The Holochain Foundation is further nurturing a global community of individuals and projects to create an ecosystem of partners and peers whose work exemplifies the commitments of the Foundation.
A Sustainable Model for Open Source Development
In conceptualizing Holochain, the founders were committed to creating a sustainable economic model for the open-source project. Many open-source software projects accept contributions, in the form of money and code, from corporate users of the software. Holochain approached this differently. Rather than asking for support from a business, the Holochain Foundation decided to create its own business, Holo Ltd., and have that business provide primary sustenance for the foundation.
Holo Limited is a cloud hosting company that is fully owned by Holochain Foundation. Holo Ltd. issued an ICO in 2018 to fund the building of the components of the Holochain network, HoloPorts, HoloFuel, and the Holo hosting apps necessary for creating a distributed hosting network for distributed applications. Holo is responsible for adhering to all regulatory requirements related to the business of Holo and operations of the HoloFuel cryptocurrency reserves, while Holochain remains a distinct Open Source project with related intellectual property residing in the Foundation.
