Swarm aspires to shape the future towards a self-sovereign global society and permissionless open markets. On Swarm, applications can run autonomously yet securely in a planetary-scale deployment and execution environment.
As a platform for permissionless publication with anonymous access, the system caters for the growing demand for privacy and security. Redundancy makes the system resilient to connectivity issues, nodes leaving and rejoining the network or targeted ddos attacks and enables a zero-downtime service. Users remain sovereign owners of their personal data in alignment with fair data principles. The system is economically self-sustaining due to a built-in incentive system enforced through smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain.
