So naturally, it should come to no surprise that async communication has been essential to how we operate on a day-to-day basis. One of our favorite tools for this type of communication is Discord.

Our team of talented Fissioneers is distributed across 7 countries + 5 continents. While remote work has been popular amongst tech companies for a long time, it goes deeper than that for Fission. We are not only a distributed company, we are a distributed systems company!

Listen to this great 🎙️ interview with our CEO @bmann on the @bcdialogues podcast. It opens with Fission's origin story, dives into key concepts like content addressing and decentralized authentication with UCANs, why we're focusing on Web Assembly, and more.

Fission is looking to provide developers with a decentralized backend-as-a-service platform to b…

OK, I've found one example. the folks at @fission seem to be doing some work on this:


We're going to add IPFS support to Mastodon!
Roughly, this looks like this:

* attachments are uploaded to the server
* added to IPFS
* they are replaced with a (configurable) link to an IPFS gateway
* persisted by a gateway provider

Since storing files are already supported on S3, it's likely that the integration will happen in a similar way to that code.

What are UCANs? What are their capabilities? How can we facilitate offline compute? Learn the answers to these questions and more here:

But in distributed systems using content addressing, we are able to use capabilities rather than an authorization server, allowing the compute and the data to move about freely.

Traditionally, when a developer wants to interact with services that have access to data, they need to access an authorization server located in a specific place.

At the Compute Over Data Summit, Fission's co-founder and CTO @expede gave a presentation on how help enable computation in distributed systems.

Ryan Betts (@depatchedmode), Head of Design at Fission, explores these nuances as he dives into wallet structure and UI considerations in this indispensable blog post:

In each of these questions, "wallet" refers to a completely different part of the Wallet Stack: a Wallet Client, an Account & Account Address, and a Recovery Method.

The word "wallet" gets used a lot, but is rarely defined.

This can be confusing for both newbies and seasoned veterans alike.
