The word AKASHA [a?ka???] ????) has roots in Sanskrit and means “ether” in both its elemental and metaphysical senses.

The ancient Sanskrit-speaking civilization envisioned akasha as a metaphysical information network connecting humanity with itself and infinite knowledge. In this paradigm, thoughts, ideas, feelings, and experiences are stored forever and shared through the ether, which acts as an universal field connecting multiple planes of existence.

We live in a modern information network openly connecting humans with each other and perpetual knowledge.

As a decentralized application AKASHA deploys a next-generation information architecture born from the fusion of Ethereum and the Inter-Planetary File System. Thanks to these technologies AKASHA is able to create a planetary-scale information network immune to censorship by design, where your thoughts and ideas will echo throughout humanity’s existence.

AKASHA believes that freedom of expression, access to information, and privacy are fundamental human rights that should be respected on the Internet as well as in real life. A civilization transitioning to an information-based society, and the permanent storage of information for future generations is a critical issue we should strive to evolve.

Driven by passion and inspired by “what ifs” AKASHA explores the applications and implications of a permanent web in the context of social networks, freedom of expression, creative perpetuity, and privacy for a better Web in service of humanity.

After all, it’s not information that wants to be free – it’s us!
