The LBRY SDK for building decentralized, censorship resistant, monetized, digital content apps.
An experimental peer-to-peer Web browserProject mention: hypothetical redemption | reddit.com/r/dym_sh | 2021-04-05
Peer-to-Peer Databases for the Decentralized WebProject mention: some thoughts and a few nano projects | reddit.com/r/nanocurrency | 2021-03-07
One of my favorite projects in the space is OrbitDB/IPFS, though Nano is quickly rising to the top. You probably haven't heard about it even though it's been around since 2014 because there is no money to be made off it directly. As a developer evaluating various distributed protocols to use in distributed systems, Nano is just about the only cryptocurrency project that fits my requirements for Record: a distributed system for audio files. Just some food for thought.
I think the easiest would be to run a NodeJS API and use js-ipfs. Then simply upload to image to your API and upload the image to the IPFS network with their js lib.
Privacy enhanced BitTorrent client with P2P content discoveryProject mention: Has anyone tried Webtor and how safe is it vs traditional torrenting + VPN / DDL? | reddit.com/r/TOR | 2021-05-03
Do not torrent over Tor. Use VPNs, Tribler, or I2P instead.
Peer-to-peer shared typesProject mention: Kanban board in one HTML using localstorage | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-02-15
For shared use and remote storage, I'd consider using CRDTs like yjs  for instance.
Should be pretty easy, local-first, and allow synchronous as well as asynchronous collaboration and syncing. Even p2p over LAN, webrtc or whatever (I'm unsure how to do local peer discovery in a web browser, on the desktop you'd simply use link-local multicast/avahi (DNS-SD)).
A decentralized messaging and sharing app built on top of Secure Scuttlebutt (SSB).
The Comprehensive Ethereum Reading ListProject mention: Daily General Discussion - April 18, 2021 | reddit.com/r/ethfinance | 2021-04-17

Framework for serverless Decentralized Applications using Ethereum, IPFS and other platformsProject mention: Daily General Discussion - January 11, 2021 | reddit.com/r/ethfinance | 2021-01-10

ChatSecure is a free and open source encrypted chat client for iOS that supports OTR and OMEMO encryption over XMPP.Project mention: For Muslims and. On Muslims to interactively learn Islam and connect usa/Uk and abroad | reddit.com/r/MuslimLounge | 2021-04-07
In this case, I would rather suggest others to use the likes of Element a Matrix client, or e.g. RetroShare, Briar, OnionShare, or e.g. XMPP with the clients like Dino, Conversations, Gajim, ChatSecure.
The blockchain that provides the digital content namespace for the LBRY protocolProject mention: How to recover LBC from old wallet.dat? | reddit.com/r/lbry | 2021-01-02
What's the date on the file? It may be a test net wallet or an old lbrycrd full node wallet. You'd need to sync up a full node and then quit / replace the wallet file: https://github.com/lbryio/lbrycrd/releases/tag/v0.17.3.2
The Stacks 2.0 blockchain implementationProject mention: Stack Stacks ($STX) to earn Sats ($BTC) | reddit.com/r/stacks | 2021-02-22
Reward cycles are 2100 blocks long -- 2000 blocks to pay 4000 BTC reward addresses, and 100 blocks for miners to vote to begin the next reward cycle. The reason for the 100 blocks that are necessarily PoB is quite technical, but there's an issue describing the problem it solves here: https://github.com/blockstack/stacks-blockchain/issues/1805

A p2p, secure file storage, social network and application protocolProject mention: Photo- and Video-Management software at the moment. Is there something that is already working and fully futureproof scalable usable? | reddit.com/r/ipfs | 2021-04-27
I'm looking for a photo and video storage solution where I can have previews of the photos and video without needing to download the full photo or video. So far I checket slate.host and space.storage, also peergos.org and sharpphotos.io. They don't seem to be it at the moment. Do you have mentions from other decentralised networks?
