Composable Personal Portal

Our Mission

We build tools that enhance data ownership and provide app interoperability!

If Web 1.0 granted netizens the right to view online content, and Web 2.0 has given netizens the right to publish in a participatory manner, Web 3.0 will go one step further and give netizens personal storage and computation.

How can we grant every netizen better ownership of personal data? How can netizens gain more participatory representation in today’s data economy? With the rise of cloud computing, the personal cloud storage model together with related content distribution methods have the potential to revolutionize the Internet and live up to Web 3.0 ideals--the division of labour in data storage, computing, and Internet services. Join us as one of the pioneers that helped build the future of the Internet!

What are our next steps?

  • Alora extension that protects personal data and enhances browsing expericence.
  • Personal portal Entro for data management.
  • Social browser with interoperable data profiles controlled by users.
  • Webassembly OS and universal web app framework with personal cloud.
