How Does Nexusless Work?

In Nexusless, cached content is stored remotely on consumer devices that act as miniature edge nodes, forming a distributed network. Each act of storage and delivery is paid by a microtransaction backed by a blockchain, allowing participants to earn income from their idle devices (edge nodes).

Technology Stack Overview

In order to ensure fast, reliable and secure delivery of web content, Nexusless combines a versioned, content-addressing file system with an incentive layer consisting of a blockchain and micropayment network:
Transaction infrastructure - an off-chain mesh of micropayment channels for fast and secure settlements (~Lightning protocol).
Public blockchain for trustless recording and verification of each instance of storage and delivery, based on proofs of retrievability.
Distributed file system with content addressing, based on the IPFS (in turn based on sKademlia DHT and a Git-like versioning graph).

Network's Operating Principles

Like in traditional content delivery networks (CDN), the origin server periodically distributes content among the points of presence. In the case of Nexusless, though, these edge nodes are consumer devices spread all around the world and earning income for their services. Audit is performed by peer nodes rather than a centralized authority:
