Future storage Now

Swarm is a decentralised data storage and distribution technology. Ready to power the next generation of censorship-resistant, unstoppable, serverless dapps.

Event: Community Call

Privacy for individuals ↔ Trust for the data economy

Unstoppable data

Swarm continues where the blockchain ends, making the world computer real.

Open & Borderless

Swarm is open source code, limited only by the people who use and maintain it - Join a community building the future of the web.


Redundant storage with local replication ensures data availability even in the face of node dropouts or data loss.

No downtime

Swarm is decentralised and distributed, and so it’s also always up, making it stable and reliable.

Privacy first

Swarm nodes provide cryptographic support enabling you to use network in an unrestricted way while building blocks like “Single-owner-chunks” enable extraordinary zero-leak privacy.

DDOS resistant

Swarm network is fully decentralised peer-to-peer network while it’s resilience against DDoS grows with every additional node in the network.

Credible neutrality

Swarm is built to not discriminate - it’s in the very nature of our design, and permeates throughout our mission.
Sustainable Development Goals

Odyssey Data Upload

The Swarm Foundation aims to empower non-profits to store their data securely and censorship-resistant. Swarm will subsidise data uploads from selected projects to incentivise public goods and advance the Sustainable Development Goals.

Decentralise web

Your decentralised web3 dapp in 4 steps

1. Fork on GitHub

Find a forkable project that should be decentralised or extended.

2. Connect to FDP

Extend it with the Fair data protocol so that users have their data saved in their private data store.

3. Upload to Swarm

Once hosted on Swarm it becomes accessible to all, with essentially zero hosting costs for developers.

4. Grow through FDP

Submit requests to be added in Fairdrive’s dapp store and make it available to existing Fairdrive users.
Interoperability and data sovereignty

Fair Data Protocol

Fair data protocol enables a fairer data economy that promotes human rights through privacy, digital sovereignty, and data interoperability.
