What is P2Pedia?

P2Pedia is a distributed Wiki system running on a Peer-to-Peer network. Participants of the wiki store the pages of interest to them on their local node. You can edit pages written by others, but you must first download a local copy of the page; your new version will be on your node, and the old version may still be available somewhere in the network! 
With this process, different versions of a page can co-exist in the network, unlike in Wikipedia and other traditional wikis, where the participants work towards a single authoritative version of each page. See also our centralized version of P2Pedia called SocialWiki.

Try it out!  using the Online Demo Node 1 or the demo node 2. In this demo there are only two nodes connected together.

 Download the software to run your own node and join the network !
