The Sylo Node Network
Run by everyone, not by one big company
Run a Sylo Node
Sylo Nodes are the foundation of a global, decentralised network.
Sylo Nodes help Sylo users connect, chat, call, and use dApps in a truly private, fully decentralised way. Sylo Nodes are simple to run, so anyone can be part of the network.
Together we will build further services Sylo Node can provide and more ways to earn for contribution.

Your Sylo Node helps:
  • Signalling to help devices find and connect directly (p2p) to each other.
  • Relaying data for users under 'secure NAT' network conditions, like devices using mobile networks.
  • Holding an encrypted inbox for when users are offline but are sent messages and data.
  • Decentralised file storage and replication.
  • Communicating with official Sylo iOS and Android notification servers.
  • Host and serving dApps running on the Sylo Network.
  • Earn Sylo Token payments in exchange for your help!
Technical explanation
The distributed Sylo Node network provides communication channels between any devices running the Sylo Protocol.
Sylo Nodes handle encrypted inboxing for devices not-always-online, libp2p connection services, p2p relaying for devices on restricted networks and more.
The network scales with ease and is not bound to any centralised nodes. All the Sylo-team-operated nodes could be removed and the Sylo Network would remain. Users are not bound to any specific node and can jump seamlessly to any other as necessary.

Future development
As the Sylo Network grows, there will be an increasing number of opportunities for those participating in the Sylo ecosystem. At Sylo, we take pride in moving quickly into new areas of decentralisation and bringing the best opportunities to our users and partners.
Operating a Sylo Node gives you a voice in which directions we move the technology and how we unfold the future together.
We want to do it together — not alone.
