Peer-to-Peer Databases for the Decentralized Web


OrbitDB is a serverless, distributed, peer-to-peer database. OrbitDB uses IPFS as its data storage and IPFS Pubsub to automatically sync databases with peers. It’s an eventually consistent database that uses CRDTs for conflict-free database merges making OrbitDB an excellent choice for decentralized apps (dApps), blockchain applications and offline-first web applications.

You can read about how to get started in this Getting Started Guide.
Find out how OrbitDB works more in depth in the OrbitDB Field Manual.
