Today I learned that I have the most popular site on the Internet. site, that is. Out of ten in existence (in the top 2.4 million domains). 🤓 (According to the same researcher, apparently there are a few more IPFS sites – 28, to be exact.)

Screenshotted so I can frame it as it’s not going to stay that way for long ;)

PS. In case you were wondering just how young/early/small the peer web is right now :)

By the way, if you want to check out those sites over , check out Beaker Browser (beakerbrowser.com/)

@christian Haha, thanks :P

Now we need plenty more fish in the sea ;) Hopefully Hypha will help with that.

@aral Forgive me for asking, but so far I haven't really understood. What exactly is the goal of Hypha? Would you like to explain that to me?

@christian It’s just experiments evolving into something. Something where you will be able to communicate both privately and publicly without third parties. It should start taking more shape soon. But I’m taking my time with it. Nothing more grandiose than that right now. I hope it can replace the web for me in the future.

@christian A 4:30 rise meant that I wrote a lengthy piece that covers some of what you asked for. Will publish it today. Watch this space :)

@aral I love how that excludes all of the Hashbase sites and it's based on a non-standard path lmao

@espectalll Hah, yeah, I was wondering about that. Although it’s based on Dat-DNS, no? (datprotocol.com/deps/0005-dns/)

@aral what kind of viewership is there on these sites? Is that know'able?

@aral It would be cool if someone built an open like... webring protocol, so sites could associate with each other like they did in the early days of the web... but in a less haphazard way than it was done then

@aral I find it extremely ironic that the list is hosted on Github.

@aral I thought about reaching out on Twitter to tell you that your site was number one but figured you wouldn't care at all. Guess I was wrong. Your website would be number two if I had sourced top sites from the Alexa top 1 million list. I only learned about the improved top ranking sites service tranco-list.eu two weeks earlier!
