The Friend Whitepaper
Friend was founded in 2014 to revolutionize the way we interact with computers.
We believe that everyone should have control of their data and be able to access it from
anywhere. The device you access your desktop from shouldn’t dictate what programs
you can use and the power available to you.
Friend endeavors to deliver the value of five words. Freedom, Intelligence,
Empowerment, Privacy, and Integration -

The Five Pillars of Friend

.
These values are found in the very soul of the platform



all read in the perspective of
the platform as your Friend.
It should be possible to communicate with your friends directly, without having to go
through proprietary services such as Skype and Facebook Messenger.
We should own our own data and live our digital lives without having to choose
between one corporate ecosystem or another.
We owe the next generation something better than unreadable software lice...

The Friend Whitepaper
Introduction
Friend is a new computer platform built for the blockchain era.
At first glance, Friend looks similar to an operating system such as Windows or OS X. It
has icons, menus and apps. However, Friend does not attempt to replace existing
operating systems; it runs on top of them, providing a powerful, unified interface to a
new world of blockchain-ready apps.
Friend can be accessed from

any

computer (or mobile) in the world - just open a new
tab in the web browser. Think Google Chromebooks without the Google part. Friend
will be a neutral alternative: an autonomous Cloud Computer owned and controlled by
its users.
For the last four years we’ve poured our hearts and minds into designing the first
version of Friend. You can try it out here:

https://friendup.cloud/demo

.
We are now raising money to improve the look and feel of the software, enhance the
user and developer experience,...

Our Values
Freedom
Freedom is the driving force of peace. Freedom of choice. Freedom of movement.
Freedom of thought. Freedom to innovate. Freedom to speak and communicate. Our
project seeks to protect these freedoms by spreading Friend far and wide, turning over
the ownership of the technology to the users themselves. The platform offers all users
a choice in tools that are available anywhere they travel. Tools to conceptualize ideas.
They can build their own apps online and distribute them in seconds. They can
communicate using powerful instant messaging and peer-to-peer video conferencing
software available to anyone on the internet. And they can do all of this on any
computer with an internet connection, untied from any single device.
Intelligence
Intelligence is fundamental to personal growth. It protects our freedom by allowing us
to solve problems and make informed decisions. We want to help advance people’s
personal development by enriching their...

The Friend Whitepaper
Privacy
Privacy is important to achieve a functioning democracy. The ability to keep secrets is
not only good for the individual, but it is good for protecting others from raw
unarticulated information that can be wielded to seed false narratives and
misunderstandings. Privacy also protects the individual from structural or corporate
abuse, where your data is sought for money and control. In Friend, we work vigorously
to protect users’ privacy. By encrypting on the user’s own device, we protect the data
before it is stored on the server. By allowing anonymous access to the Friend Network,
we allow the user to choose if, how and when to expose his or her identity.
Integration
Integration is a way to simplify. Digital structures are getting increasingly complex,
and by integrating data, devices and services, we try to organize the complexity in
simpler forms. By aggregating a user’s piece of the internet pie into a Workspace, it can
clean up the information i...

The Friend Whitepaper
Mission
Having spent the last four years developing Friend as a server platform for commercial
use, we are now ready to focus our efforts on connecting Friend computers together to
form a decentralized network.
Once complete, anyone will be able to access their

Friend Cloud Computer

securely, at
any time, from any device - even mobiles.
In order to track the sharing of resources, and enable fair trading between computers,
we have chosen to integrate Ethereum into the core of Friend. It will soon be possible
to share storage and computation resulting in lower cost, anonymous, cloud
computing.
Friend aims to make Ethereum more accessible and developer friendly. Users can
immediately access applications, resources and services.
Digital Independence for Everyone

The Friend Whitepaper
Why Ethereum?
We believe the Ethereum blockchain will continue to evolve and become the de facto
standard for global scalable blockchains. Friend will build on top of and augment the
Ethereum blockchain with a cloud computing stack that is free and open to everyone.
In addition to making the decentralized web accessible to everyone, we want to give
developers a spring board that will allow them to easily integrate core Ethereum
functionality into their apps.
Friend is open source

and has been released on

Github

. It is available under a

mixed
license scheme

where the server - Friend Core - uses the MIT license, while the
libraries and modules are using LGPLv3. The user interface and web components are
licensed under the AGPLv3 license.
Rapid application development
We know it is hard for anyone to get excited about an operating system, even one as
unique as Friend. What ...
