What is P2P decentralized technologies? Many of today’s most useful and widespread applications, such as Bittorrent, Whatsapp, TOR, Telegram and various video chat apps, employ p2p infrastructures to create fast, secure and scalable applications. Liberthon participants are invited to take a different approach, on standard client server architectures and to use p2p technology to invent apps that can disrupt our nationwide infrastructures.
