De-platforming, censorship and data-leaks is at an all time high. Fear not! A new generation of Freedom Technology and censorship resistant apps are here: Find 7 censorship resistant Blockstack Apps below.
Leveraging the power of Bitcoin and Blockstack, this new generation of censorship resistant applications comes with the promise of true ownership and security.

You have sole control of your data and accounts, via your Blockchain based ID. Check out 7 of the most popular Blockstack apps below.


Bitpatron
Bitpatron is a censorship resistant alternative to Patreon, a revenue platform for content creators, known for several high-profile bans. Bitpatron is powered by Bitcoin and decentralized IDs on Blockstack.


Graphite Docs and Publishing
Graphite allows you to create, store and share documents and files with privacy and security. Leveraging Blockstacks decentralized infrastructure, you get the convenience of cloud storage without the privacy and security trade-off.

Graphite publishing offers decentralized publishing platform with 100% data ownership.

Sell anything, get paid in Bitcoin. Paid.co is a decentralized market place that lets you sell everything from physical products to online content. According to paid.co website, there’s no fees. You’ll keep 100-99% of your revenue.

Dmail
Dmail is a decentralized email provider promising complete privacy and full control of your data. No one can read your emails and no one can shut down your account.

Just as with the other apps, your Dmail inbox is linked to your Blockstack ID (that only you control). This means no account or password. Nice huh?


DotPodcast
DotPodcast is building a podcast protocol, including a decentralized directory (and search function) build on Blockstack’s Atlas network. It’s an open source podcast platform, with the primary focus of helping podcasters get paid, publishing without censorship and enhancing user privacy.

It’s interesting because its open nature promises to give power back to the publisher and users, while limiting the power of middlemen such as Apple and Spotify.


Recall Photos
Recall is a open-source Google Photo alternative. Store your photos privately, only accessible with your Blockstack ID.

The app is free to use with blackstack storage and alternatively you can pick your own storage provider.

Bottle is a way to tip or pay bitcoin to anyone with a social media account (3 billion people). While bottle is not build on blockstack’s decentralized infrastructure it allows login with Blockstack’s decentralized IDs. It was too awesome an app to leave out.

Can’t be Evil
Recall and other Blockstack Apps are swapping Googles former slogan “don’t be evil” with a new one: “can’t be evil”. These apps can’t steal or leak your data, so they can’t do evil stuff with it.

This is a technological frontier when it comes to online privacy and data security. Happy exploring!
