Meet Sonr: Everyday P2P Identity

We are pleased to Announce our Decentralized Identity and Data Delivery System - Sonr.


Late on a Wednesday night in Fall of 2021, Prad Nukala was playing COD: Warzone during the peak of the pandemic. While playing a match during Season 2, he encountered a bug where teammates were unable to speak in Party Chat together.

This led him down a long rabbit hole in attempts to recreate an alternative P2P chat system - eventually leading to the discovery of libp2p. After some further research, the development process began to create a universal delivery protocol to seamlessly send data between any two devices.
