What is Zen?

Zen is a desktop application which is an alternative to well-known browsers and to the concept of a ‘web’ as a whole.

Zen is a semi closed decentralised distributed social network, a search engine and a storage of information, where information is being created, updated and consumed directly by the users of the system.

The main idea of the project is that the content (text, audio, photo, video) is distributed between the participants of the network using a p2p (f2f) model with the technologies of a distributed storage IPFS.

Zen is meant to become a new way of spending time in the Internet. The system uses a cryptocurrency ZenToken as a means of exchange, payments, voting and games.

Zen is a decentralized network, influence of servers is minimized and in the future it will be completely eliminated.

We are creating the clean Internet where one can find everything he or she needs: friends, mail, calls, cinema, games, articles and much more.


We are creating Zen for all people on the Earth, who are tired of digital garbage on the Internet, spam, millions of one-type online services, information overload and billions of websites with the same information.

We are creating Zen so that you could save your time and have real and productive life.

Our mission is to give the users of Internet the instrument to make life easier. This instrument will allow them to save their priceless time of life. Zen is a new milestone in the development of the Internet that will reduce the amount of informational noise and informational pollution.

Reward users for socially useful actions! Any activity aiming to collect and organise knowledge should be rewarded as well as any socially useful action.

Core Objectives

Create an application that will be an alternative to web browsers, that will combine all the main user scenarios in the Internet: communication, search and creation of information, entertainment.

Reduce information overload of people, make their life easier in the period of information age.

Make the application decentralised, independent from material interests of a limited number of people.

Reward users for socially useful actions. Any activity aiming to collect and organise knowledge should be rewarded as well as any socially useful action.

Reduce negative influence of unscrupulous people, organisations and information. Any negative and destructive action should have an effect on life of its initiator lowering his or her social status and reputation.

Give people equal opportunities for personal development. All the people are equal and if someone has less resources than the other, it should not matter if the person wants to develop.
