Peer-to-Peer Technology

Peer-to-peer technology is one of the oldest in the world. Everything that happens without the participation of a third party (or with its minimal participation) is a peer-to-peer interaction. Every day, people come across this approach: buying products in a store, paperwork without a broker, renting a car directly is all a peer-to-peer interaction. As a result, it saves your time and material resources.

Alfacast uses peer-to-peer technology in the most efficient way. There are systems in which a third party (server) is directly involved in the user discovery process or something else. Our system does not use intermediate servers, we consider this approach morally outdated for peer-to-peer interaction. We designed our system in order to minimize the influence of a third party on alfacast.
