RightMesh provides a decentralized Internet infrastructure, which is less vulnerable to disruption by natural disasters and deliberate interference from oppressive regimes. There are a lot of software applications that claim to be decentralized but rely on centralized infrastructure at the hardware level; RightMesh is the first truly decentralized network and peer-to-peer platform. The parent company, Left, is an 80-person multinational company and has invested more than $5 million in RightMesh.
