There was a "decentralized reddit" project called Aether which is now dead.

Don't bother downloading it since there haven't been any peers for a couple years.

Maybe something like this though?

It has to be accessible via browser with no install of anything whatsoever

zeronet is a good idea, but then you realize everybody needs a special program in order to just read the fucking site, way to build an echo chamber cyber ghetto

Zeronet needs a browser extension as a "bridge" to allow easier use.

Edit, take it a step further and allow people to build dedicated hardware boxes to function as transparent nodes in our home networks. The various arm boards and arm sticks should be good for this. Simply add in a hard drive or SSD for serious performance. The node could load and host the content we want allowing for a faster browsing experience and strong over all network.

BitTorrent Inc. has built a half-assed p2p eco-system.

Thanks God Project Maelstrom was officially shut down.

BitTorrent Live is the one I was actually looking forward to. But again they're dragging their ass and haven't opened it up to the dev community either. Partner with Meerkat (defunct), Periscope, or similar live streaming services? No why would they do that.

Work with a Youtube competitor like Vid.me to develop a working product that reduces bandwidth costs while using the latest codecs like HEVC & Opus? Again why the heck would BitTorrent Inc. do that. Because it would all be practical.

Instead of being centralized, it becomes decentralized.

Say you download a torrent. Many people have a copy on their drive of what you want. So to be quick and ask little you get chapter 1 from one person, chapter 2 from another and so on - all at the same time.

But lets say chapter 3 changes and you have an old copy of the book. Your torrent client, if it was ""smart"", would update just that file by looking to see who has the new version.

Imagine voat having that power. We all have a history file. Some users here may keep the entire history file, some maybe just a hash much like blockchain tech.

When a post is made it is seeded out and queryed across a ton of IPs. E, this make dos attacks harder and easier to defend and trace methinks

Instead of the website being located on one server, the website is copied to several different computers which balance the responsibility of responding to content requests.

Like if your a mod you should be apart of the request list

I think it's like bitcoins..but for data.. data is 1's and 0's so the entire world will have pieces of your data but only your computer would know the password to that data which is a super complicated string of digits.

I dunno if Im right though.

There is already a model for this called Steemit. It's more like reddit, except you get paid for content. Not a lot of people being called faggot though.

No central server = no central server costs... no bandwidth expenses. Just some public announcement website or some such.

Could save a massive bundle in the long run - like if VOAT hits 20 million users.

I think this idea is perhaps not so crazy after all.
