Codius is an open hosting protocol. It makes it very easy to upload a program, whether you want it to run on one host or thousands.
It also has built-in billing. That means once a program is uploaded, anyone can pay to keep it running — the author, the users and even the program itself.
There are many ways to host reliable services. But they all require constant maintenance, abandoned projects die.
Codius lets you turn your service into a peer-to-peer network. That means as long as there is one person out there using it, it'll keep running and it'll never be down.
It's great that we have decentralized currencies like Bitcoin. But right now you have to choose between centralized, user-friendly and decentralized, annoying wallets.
With Codius, you can get the full spectrum of decentralization. Choose anything from total centralization to complete distribution.
When two people transact, they could write the terms of their transactions into code, but neither of them might trust the other to run it.
Codius allows a third party to run it and attest to the integrity of the exact code it received.
Codius runs at close to native speeds.
State-of-the-art sandboxing means applications are isolated from the host and from each other.
Write code in any programming language. Codius can be configured with a suitable environment.
Codius applications can pay each other using any currency using Interledger.
Codius can talk to anything connected to the internet.
