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.
