DFINITY Sodium Network Launch

to
21487 people attended
Join the DFINITY Foundation for this free virtual event marking the last milestone before the public launch of the Internet Computer later this year — spinning out as part of the public internet.

Big tech has distorted the way we use the web, monopolizing wealth at the top and restricting innovation, entrepreneurship, and ownership of internet services. The Internet Computer is a blockchain computer powered by a network of independent data centers, allowing software to run anywhere on the internet rather than on Amazon, Google, and Microsoft-controlled server farms.

The Internet Computer restores ownership of the internet back to the people.

SODIUM Special Launch Event
The Sodium Network will unveil the Network Nervous System (NNS), an open algorithmic governance system that controls the Internet Computer. The launch event will feature a series of talks, discussions, and demos exploring algorithmic governance, DeFi and dapps, and the economics behind the Internet Computer.
