@Framasoft Isn't that the same thing bittorrent tried a few years back?

@SunDancer I don't remember excatly their project but I think they didn't include federated hosting in it... or did they?
Anyway, thanks to new protocols (webtorrent + activityPub federation), it seems (and we hope) that this solution could really be a deal-changer.

@Framasoft I can't remember myself but they used a peer to peer network for twitch like streaming IIRC. I can't remember that name...
