Four Decentralisation Protocols

Four Decentralisation Protocols

An introduction to decentralisation protocols using JavaScript

About the Book

In this book, we're going to embark on a tour of four exciting decentralisation protocols: ActivityPub, IPFS, Hyper, and Secure Scuttlebutt. Each section contains an introduction to the protocol itself, followed by a hands-on practical chapter in which we build a small project with it using JavaScript. 

What you will learn:

  • How to leverage federation and decentralisation for your own projects.
  • A good grasp of when to use each of those protocols.
  • A path forward to learn more about the wonderful world of modern decentralisation protocols.
