building blocks for a new software economy

PROTOCOLS

The open Wireline protocols enable the development of interoperable services that span blockchain and off-chain compute environments. Core protocols describe service discovery, execution, and identity.

NETWORK

The Wireline Registry enables developers to create applications and services that dynamically discover, interact, and trade with each other using smart contracts.

COMMUNITY

The network creates a new economy for developers, businesses, service providers, and end users. The Wireline ecosystem becomes an owners' collective that transcends today's proprietary platforms.

The Wireline Network

Wireline is the decentralized network and registry for serverless cloud computing. Services running on Wireline benefit from the scaling and high-availability guarantees of internet-scale serverless architecture; the blockchain-backed registry provides a decentralized mechanism for service discovery and coordination.

Scalable

Wireline provides a hybrid computation network that combines internet-scale cloud infrastructure with decentralized blockchain technology. Developers can build fullstack applications that scale on demand.

DECENTRALIZED

Wireline enables sophisticated applications to be assembled from interoperable components created by independent developers around the world. Applications consist of blockchain and off-chain components that operate across the network.

OPEN

The Wireline network itself is composed of open source services that are developed, maintained and operated by the community. The network is an owners' cooperative, where developers set the terms and pricing for what they build, and users determine how their data is used.

An open architecture for a decentralized future

Wireline Technology

Wireline provides the infrastructure to build fullstack internet-scale applications.

Network

Open protocols enable a network of interconnected applications created by independent software developers. These protocols enable users to understand and control how their data is used.

Registry

The decentralized registry enables independent services to discover and interact with each other. The registry is the nexus of reputation for users, developers, services, and applications.

Compute

The Wireline compute protocols enable services to operate across trusted cloud and untrusted blockchain environments. Developers can freely choose from independent compute providers, or run their own private infrastructure.

Blockchain

The entire ecosystem serves the Wireline economy: a token-based global network of developers, businesses and end users. With fully transparent, blockchain-based systems of reputation, staking, and exchange, Wireline operates as a true meritocracy.
