With net neutrality changing considerably in the last few months, if you are worried about the state of the Internet and the greed of corporations controlling something we use on a daily basis. You may be interested in a new next-generation Internet solution which has been created by a team of engineers and developers based in Portugal. HoloPort is a small mini server which uses peer-to-peer to recreate a safer more open Internet experience, when you can control your personal data and choose how your application’s function. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the new hardware which has already raised over $380,000 thanks to over 865 backers by the Indiegogo crowdfunding website.

The HoloPort mini server incentivises you to share your computer’s spare capacity by rewarding you with secure cryptocurrency in the form of Holo fuel. HoloPort is an easy and direct way to support the distributed Internet, providing a stable foundation for both distributed applications and personal data on a network hosted by the community, rather than huge corporations.
