The Essentia Framework

The Essentia framework is bootstrappable from anywhere in the world from just a seed. For any consumer needing decentralized storage or crypto exchanges, organizations requiring smart-contract capabilities or developers wanting to build blockchain solutions - it’s the most efficient way to experience and utilize the new internet, where cryptograhy rules and data remains in the control of the user.

Essences

In Essences, entities own their data, interlinking them across multiple services. They can be of individuals, companies, groups or organisations.

Synergies

Synergies are the connective tissue of operations. They link different platforms, resources and modules together for them to be able to interoperate.

Galaxies

Developers can build on top of them and users can pay for leaner, more powerful and efficient applications on the Essentia framework.

The Essentia App

Interoperations and Data For The New Internet
