How Althea is Preventing a Future of Internet Censorship with Wireless, Community-Owned Decentralized Infrastructure

Episode Summary

In this episode, we interview Justin Kilpatrick and Jehan Tremback of Althea, one of the few projects in the blockchain space undertaking the herculean effort of decentralizing the Internet. Althea is a grant recipient of the Interchain Foundation (ICF) grants and is building a bridge between Cosmos and Ethereum known as Peggy. In this interview, we refer to this bridge as 'Althea Peggy'.

For a primer about 'mesh networks' versus 'fixed wireless', this reddit post covers why Althea is more of an extension of the existing Internet rather than a 'new Internet': https://www.reddit.com/r/darknetplan/comments/d2b7nl/a_couple_of_noob_questions_about_meshnetdarknet/
