  • Ecosystem: Autonomous and Freedom

    Matters.News, powered by Matters Lab, is a self-regulated community of 100,000 creators, also the first entry point built by Matters Lab. The decentralized content publication ecosystem is built on top of InterPlanetary File System (IPFS), a protocol and peer-to-peer network for storing and sharing data in a distributed file system that is hard for authorities to censor, allowing creators to be truly independent. We also partner with LikeCoin Foundation and support Matters Pay to reward creativity in the form of multiple currencies and cryptocurrencies.
