What is Alexandria?

The Ancient Library of Alexandria is a perfect, and tragic, example of the problem with centralization. Today’s information architecture is similarly vulnerable because it relies on centralized hubs to store and distribute information. Decentralized technology eliminates central points of failure.

THE HTTP REVOLUTION ALL OVER AGAIN

People used the internet before HTTP and the web browser, but they were restricted to walled gardens like AOL, Prodigy, and CompuServe.  With the advent of HTTP and the web browser, anyone could publish using an open standard. This destroyed the walled gardens and opened up the World Wide Web that we know and love today.

What http & the browser did for sharing information, Alexandria is doing for publishing, distribution and sales of digital content. Think of it like Spotify or youtube, but without servers, ads or censorship.

Alexandria allows any application to capitalize on a protocol that both monetizes and distributes media across a variety of applications.  It means content creators can sell the same artifact in countless different methods and fans won't be limited to available content within their favorite service.

SELF SCALING ECOSYSTEM

In order to fully decentralize this entire system, everything that is normally handled by a server has been replaced by an open market of services provided by users participating to both support the network, and earn revenue.  Share hard drive space, mine the coins, provide coin to be auto traded when users need to swap one for the other.

TOKEN WALLET

A "trustless online wallet". No need to sync the entire blockchain, or trust someone else with your private keys. Florincoin only, Bitcoin coming soon.

MINING POOL

Earn money and increase the security of the library's index by mining Florincoin. This pool supports both merged mining and rentals.

EXPLORER

Browse and search the raw data stored in the Florincoin blockchain, both Alexandria related and otherwise.
