What is the permaweb?

ArDrive is built upon and powered by the permaweb. 

Launched in 2018, the permaweb is an indelible, tamper-proof version of the internet. Sam Williams, the founding engineer of the permaweb, describes it as “a collectively owned hard drive that never forgets, [and] allows us to remember and preserve valuable information, apps, and history indefinitely.” 

The permaweb was developed by Arweave with technology that is based on blockchains and distributed computing, the computer science innovation behind digital currencies such as Bitcoin.
