Join the Swarm Foundation team members and community for a virtual event to commemorate the beginning of Swarm 2.0.
Privacy for individuals ↔ Trust for the data economy
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.
Swarm is decentralised and distributed, and so it’s also always up, making it stable and reliable.
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.
Swarm network is fully decentralised peer-to-peer network while it’s resilience against DDoS grows with every additional node in the network.
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 subsidize data uploads from selected projects to incentivise public goods and advance the Great Data Upload.
Develop fast and free
Swarm provides a complete stack of essential base layer components for developers. Create and host dApps, NFT meta-data, and media files decentralised!
Bee is a peer-to-peer client that connects you with other peers all over the world to become part of Swarm network, a global distributed p2p storage network that aims to store and distribute all of the world's data.

Monthly Development Update – October 2023
October has seen some important shifts in the wider Swarm ecosystem. The Bee Track successfully released Bee 1.17.5 featuring smaller but impactful improvements. The team’s next steps are focused on refining the upload and download experiences, along with diligent monitoring of data longevity.
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, and allows developers to focus on building their dapps rather than reinventing data stores.
One Swarm, united in PLUR, guided by virtue
Build on Swarm
Swarm grants and online events support many interesting projects that are already building their products on top of Swarm.
Etherna is a transparent video platform FOR EVERYONE where freedom of speech is incentivized, not convicted.
Dapplets aims to leverage target websites’ search results to pull data previously uploaded to Swarm, providing an interface for data interchange between the Dapplet and the search result provider.
Copyright Delta is building the Digital Rights Exchange & Network (DRX) which allows users to control their data and decide who has access to it. DRX also enables tokenised management of royalties, licensing and ownership.
Metaprovide has implemented a Nextcloud plugin that enables users to interact with Swarm storage directly in Nextcloud Files bringing Nextcloud users closer to the vision of a decentralized future.
