# The juicy details

biton is a peer-to-peer network built around swarms — groups of peers that store encrypted files and relay requests through one another. biton swarms interconnect in a global network that provides plausible deniability, meaning that adversaries cannot be sure about who originally made a request. In this way, biton can be used for evading information controls and for building community networks around local data and services.

Is biton anonymous? — NOT YET!

If you need to hide your identity, biton is not ready for that just yet. In the meantime, take a look at Tor and I2P for browsing anonymous services, or at Freenet for anonymous publishing.

# Come along and BYOb (*Bring Your Own biton)

Grow the network stronger by running a relay, contributing to the project, building biton applications, and volunteering to your local community kitchen.
