The Power of an Unstoppable Private Network

The Mainframe network is the messaging layer for the new web. This goes beyond human-to-human messaging. There are many use-cases and applications for reliably, privately, and securely routing data packets through the Mainframe peer-to-peer network. Mainframe is resistant to censorship, surveillance, and disruption. With the exception of a catastrophic asteroid event or an aggressive alien invasion, the Mainframe network is simply unstoppable. We build with five fundamental principles as our guide.

Devcon Three

We’ve had the privilege to work closely with the Ethereum Foundation, especially their Swarm/PSS teams. From that collaboration, our team was invited to present our work at Devcon3, the premier developer conference for the Ethereum ecosystem. We shared some of our technology and research on peer to peer messaging, including progress on the Onyx messaging client. The response was overwhelmingly positive. Though our technology is still early in development, many from the audience were requesting to have access as soon as possible.


Onyx is an application we built internally to showcase some of the capabilities and ideas behind the Mainframe network. The end-user experience feels similar to Slack, a messaging tool for the workplace. Onyx stands apart because it is powered by a fully decentralized, censorship-resistant, and surveillance-resistant Mainframe network. All major platforms are supported (even mobile). Go give Onyx a spin!
