Farcaster is a sufficiently decentralized social network.

Two main components:

  1. On-chain registry for identity registration (like DID VDRs). Table of username, address, and host_url
  2. Off-chain hosts where users store social data

# Distributed Host Architecture

Farcaster allows users to host their content on any web server as long as they sign everything with their private key.

There are two options for hosting: self-hosting and using a managed host (Gmail does for email and Github does for Git).
