CORONAVIRUS ALERT! If you want to protect yourself here is the info :

Hello! PeerFreedom promotes digital security and decentralization - we provide services you can use for free, we collect knowledge in this wiki, we create free programs and programming libraries.

We are very open group of users and developers: you do not have to behave in any polite way nor follow any political or other views to join our open-source development or join our community, and absolutely anyone can use our open-source products (neutral politics), of course would be nice if you can be friendly but you do not have to - see nCoC.

List of all topics is here:

Peer Freedom


Peer Freedom is a movement that promotes Internet freedom by decentralization, and provides tools to support usage and development of new peer-to-peer networks.

  • promotion of cypherpunk topics: free information, freedom of speech and expression, protection from censorship
  • support of practical cypherpunk freedom: own finances (Bitcoin), own Internet (meshnets), own systems and hardware, DIY devices
  • servers and services for our community and for others - email, peertube
  • creating code, developing
    • including C++ PFP library for general p2p like programs


We do not really need any CoC ("code of conduct") since rules are simple:

1. All that matters is merit.

2. We are all adults. Capable of having adult discussions (like among friends, relaxing in a nice 1990's bar). In virtual-reality /ignore works for most things, usually only spam, doxing or threats call for more.

3. We don't know who you are. In fact, we don't care, so don't tell us.

You do not have to be "very sensitive" nor have some correct political views to talk to us, just do not be a total asshole conducting real personal attacks and such.

Also, this is just for using some of our services or talking to our small social circles - for anything else, including using software made by us that is Free and Open, you can be asshole, we don't have power to stop anyone and do not wish to.

This is a modified version of No Code of Conduct
