Join the Cabal Expedition with Alexander Cobleigh
Cabal is not just another open-source chat application. It's an interstellar cooperative, where every member plays a vital role in a lean and harmonious community. Say goodbye to servers and logins! Cabal effortlessly brings together like-minded explorers, fostering a sense of camaraderie and adventure.
By harnessing the power of append-only log and DHT technologies, Cabal brings you a peer-to-peer group chat experience that's truly out of this world. No longer bound by the limitations of traditional servers, Cabal allows you to connect with fellow explorers, collaborators, and like-minded enthusiasts, even in the face of cosmic internet disruptions. Prepare to be amazed, for Cabal's resilience shines through, even during the darkest hours of an internet outage.
But wait, there's more! Cabal's intriguing design doesn't stop at revolutionizing group communication. In the depths of its core lies a unique subjective moderation system, shaping Cabal into a private chat group like no other.
Explore Cabal with Alexander Cobleigh and uncover a universe where diverse perspectives flourish and communities bloom!
