NewNode is the first decentralized peer-to-peer content delivery protocol, enabling data distribution free from censorship, spying, and attack.

NewNode seamlessly builds a decentralized content delivery network that is quickly and easily deployed by publishers, transparent to users, and greatly improves overall network performance.

Within the scope of the OpenTechFund project, NewNode is working to develop a new peer-to-peer protocol and a transport encryption layer to protect the protocol against detection, snooping, and tampering.
