We're a startup based in NYC working on a Web3 Discord alternative. Comm is crypto-native messaging based on federated keyservers. Our long-term goal is to build an alternative to the centralized application server model that dominates Web2. Sophisticated apps (like Discord) need a backend, but today those backends are controlled by corporations. Our solution is to replace the cloud with a network of personal, private application servers (we call them “keyservers”). I starting working on Comm earlier this year. I’m a programmer by trade and previously worked at FB for 5 years. We currently have 9 devs actively contributing to our codebase, including three here in NYC. We raised a small pre-seed round in February from some big names and are looking to raise our seed in the next 4 months.
