What is the difference between Blockchain and Holochain?

A holochain application is run entirely by the people who use it.
This enables direct communication, without the need for corporate web servers.

For any particular use case, developers can create fit-for-purpose solutions that strike the right balance between minimizing risks, reducing costs, and optimizing speed.

Relative to other distributed application infrastructures such as Blockchain (Bitcoin, Ethereum), Holochain applications operate exponentially faster and cheaper. Our lightweight architecture is perfect even for mobile phones and other low capacity devices.

    Thanks for this introduction to Holochain. You’ve peaked my curiosity to read & hear more. I’ve a problem with Bitcoin’s anonymity & its role in what many consider are the majority of transactions involving illegal damaging drug & arms trading including financing of the CIA through these anonymously. Is Holochain is considering the strengths & values of local human relations as a building block (fractal) of empowerment at all levels. It seems as though Holochain’s Peer-to-Peer architecture can facilitate fractal human design.
    The problem with our colonial economy is its foundation in ‘exogenous’ (Latin ‘other-generated’) violence. The violence of oligarch orchestrated colonial invasion & institutional economic control destroys cultural memory & creates subsequent social-economic amnesia & ignorance of humanity’s once worldwide ‘indigenous’ (Latin ‘self-generating’) economic heritage. ‘Money’ from the Greek ‘mnemosis’ meaning ‘memory’ is supposed to be a system of remembering all the contributions which create our collective economy, yet bitcoin & many blockchains are built at a scale, in which our relationships are forgotten & anonymity abounds.
    Indigenous economy is cultural starting with the intimate intergenerational female-male critical-mass economies-of-scale in the ~100 person multihome-dwelling-complex as well as the specialized Production-Society-Guilds in which all participants contributing gained progressive ownership across one’s lifetime of contribution. Although 70% of the world’s population lives in multihomes today, we are so institutionally colonized that; we don’t know how to animate our local relationships, resources, talents, goods, services & dreams as a foundation. The string-shell value tools which once were worldwide on every continent & island, were based in time-equivalence accounting for all community stakeholders.
    Humanity’s worldwide universal indigenous ancestors integrated currency ‘money’ (Greek ‘mnemosis’ = ‘memory’), ‘capital’ (L ‘cap’ = ‘head’ = ‘wisdom of experience’), condolence (social-security), ‘education’ (L ‘educare’ = ‘to lead forth from within’) for all stakeholder contributions & other human values into one ‘accounting’ cycle recognizing the interdependent relationship between all values. https://sites.google.com/site/indigenecommunity/relational-economy
