Who is Holochain For?

Holochain is a smart choice if:

  • Your users need to access your application despite unreliable network conditions or even total loss of connectivity.
  • You want to reduce your security burden by taking advantage of proactive, adaptive security that minimizes the impact of data breaches and automatically responds to attacks.
  • You want to see your application scale automatically and cheaply with user adoption.
  • You need to meet strong privacy requirements (e.g., GDPR and HIPAA) without much hassle.
  • Your users demand customizability and sovereignty over their online activities.
  • You want to equip your user communities to own their infrastructure—without having to become system admins.
  • You’re exploring non-extractive business models, but you think that ‘being good’ won’t bring in as much money and you want technology that makes it affordable to stick to your principles.
  • You’re ready to trade some control for technology that puts your users first.
  • You’ve tried blockchain, but found it slow, expensive, and hard to tweak for your needs.
