About

dat:// is a peer-to-peer protocol. Dat’s strengths are that data is hosted and distributed by many computers on the network, that it can work offline or with poor connectivity, that the original uploader can add or modify data while keeping a full history, and that it can handle large amounts of data.

Where does my donation go?

Donations will go towards the development of software development toolkits and documentation, to build capacity for the next 1,000 applications built on Dat. We maintain a small team of developer advocates that work directly with developers at all stages of growth without charge, to help projects integrate Dat into their application data flow.

Community First

The Dat Protocol Foundation is a small non-profit group that provides social and technical infrastructure for the consortium of projects and working groups that help build the Dat Protocol.

##Transparent Funding

We believe information and communication technology should be transparently funded and operated. Development of the core protocol is driven entirely by contributors from the consortium and grants from external organizations, keeping it neutral and flexible.

Open Governance

At the scale of the web, every decision can have a massive impact on our political systems and social well-being. The Dat Protocol is governed openly through a series of working groups.
