Welcome to the libp2p discussion forums!

We are so happy to have you here! :raised_hands:

As you probably know, libp2p is a modular networking stack that powers a large number of peer-to-peer applications. It provides plumbing such as peer discovery, routing, addressing, connectivity, security, etc., so you can focus on building your app/platform.

The libp2p project has grown rapidly in the last months, and up until now, we’ve been primarily Github-focused.

Github is fantastic tool to engage with maintainers, but we felt we needed a new venue to enable users, implementers, contributors, researchers, and curious minds to engage with one another in a collaborative, synergistic way.

After all, libp2p is all about creating connections! :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

So say hello :wave: to our new discussion forums! There are several categories, so make sure to post under the relevant one:

  • Users & developers: if you’re building with libp2p.
  • Implementers & contributors: if you’re building libp2p itself.
  • Research & paper discussions.
  • Ecosystem & community: tell us about your project, or announce meetups and other events.
  • News & announcements.

We aim to keep the libp2p community is open, accessible, inclusive and collaborative. Please help us keep it that way!
