About HexHootHexHoot is an Open Source project that aims to create a platform for communication between people while respecting their privacy and data ownership.
You may wonder, why HexHoot? With numerous existing communication platforms like WhatsApp, Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom, why create another tool that solves the same problem? Well, the answer is simple - we are not competing with these platforms head-on, but rather setting up a framework that would enable the concept of user authentication in applications that can run without any centralized servers.
Traditional software that enabled Peer-to-Peer communication relied on a centralized server to authenticate users, not because they wanted to, but because it was probably the only way at the time. However, we have solved this problem using Zero-knowledge-proof strategies, allowing us to create a communication platform that is fully decentralized.
At HexHoot, we believe that Internet is supposed to be free; free as in "libre" and not "gratis". There is a tendancy in the world that certain closed source algorithms are actively deciding what content the people must be exposed to. You can't view their source code, while they read each and everything about you. We would like to reverse this situation by providing transparency into the system's operations while ensuring that no personal information is collected. Therefore, we have created an Open Source project that respects users' privacy and stores all data locally on their computers.
With HexHoot, users have complete control over their data. We are paving the way for a more decentralized and democratic internet, where users can communicate freely.
