plebble logoplebble

P2P distributed network of inexpensive nodes.

Blockchain multitoken platform designed for privacy and sovereignty.

grid status [good] Nodes: 55 Ledger: 201
Software version: plebble-alpha-28_81834a67d1+.a3330859 2020-09-05_12-43-13 [release notes]

WEB3: Plumbing the future of internet.

We seek decentralization.

We are not pursuing a global economy driven by 1 'central' token,

but a real distributed economy driven by billions of tokens.

  • other L1 crypto-currency systems: Bitcoin BTC, Bitcoin-cash BCH, Ethereum
  • other exchanges: Binance, etc
Plebble. Guides:
  • Node+non-custodial wallet:
    • Raspberry Pi (Zero, 3B+, 4). Plebble-OS
    • VM (Debian 10/buster) Node bootstrapping 3-liner:
      chmod +x setup
      Plebble lowers the costs of running a VM node (hosted virtual machine) down to just $5/month. [debian 10 droplet at Digital Ocean].
  • Onboarding fast lane: Custodial wallet (it doesn't need to setup a node, it only requires installing a mobile app) [soon]
Join us:
  • Run a node, make sure it runs on channel 0. Let's make the network a bit bigger. A consensus-split (meaning the network splits into two halves) shall happen transparently when number of nodes N > 1000.
  • git: [available soon. delayed, code under pre-publication review. (ETA feb'22)]
Donate: push us forward!:

Please consider donating. We need backers in order to support the continuous development of this project, which can be seen as a distributed company where users are all shareholders. Unfortunately VC profit-seeking algorithms can't see any profit for them and hence they don't approach. Besides, it is sort of a success for us ( :-P ), since it means maximum alignment with a design-mantra: to be the profit machine of choice for its users. Plebble is a free tool for helping privacy-seeking, self-sovereign users in trading their portfolio of valuables, while protecting them from incuring in any issue with the Law. Laws are configurable by user at node scope, e.g. North Pole Law. Help us reach there. Thanks.

Plebble is a L1 (Level 1) multi-coin cryptocurrency system. If you already like Bitcoin but you dont like Nakamoto Consensus (Proof of Work, Proof of Stake or any other variant) because they are far from being sustainable or not egalitarian, and you also advocate for privacy and wallets automation with P2P trading capabilities, if you like the futuristic idea of an automated state based on distributed power where the invidual is sovereign and shareholders of a system that, provided it becomes mainstream, could deliver a 'universal salary' from the profits made by mass-comsumption services like cash transfers, then Plebble is a project you should look into in more detail and eventually decide to run an inexpensive node at home.

Nodes are paid in native token 'gas' for validating transactions and for securing the network against malicious attacks.


An anonymous distributed P2P system based on a flat organization of inexpensive nodes securing a database (ledger) using a new unnamed consensus algorithm that could be called "Proof of IP4", "Proof of nothing", or "no proof at all". The only requirement to qualify as node is to operate behing a IPv4 address [why?].

A network formed of between 50 and 100 nodes, running on dedicated raspberry pi from anonymous homes or VMs in the cloud, has been running since October 2018. A link to the current list of living nodes can be found here: Nodes. Plebble is distributed across the world, run by anonymous people who are incentivized because their wallets are paid by the system in a cryptocurrency called gas.


Plebble creates and destroys gas depending on the profits coming from transaction volume. If profits are low enough Plebble will top-up creating more gas from thin air before proceeding to spread it all to the nodes. This means all nodes are paid for their validation work every minute.

Community - Governance

On the near future date of publication of beta 1.0 sources will be disclosed and an anonymous development community will take over the software release process under a consensus based on skill.

KATLAS will manage the process power redistribution until the system becomes fully distributed and still producing checked releases.

The Name Plebble

A Plebble is undefinable, it is a word that is mysterious and is shrouded in controversy.
Using it in an argument results in instant victory for whomever used it and ultimate shame for the other party(s).
  -- Urban dictionary

Check it out!

It is free and permissionless, you just need to enjoy testing new systems. You may find running a node an excellent risk/reward activity, very profitable if mass adoption happens. ; )

3-step guide to run a Plebble node on raspberry Pi: 1-get the hardware; 2-record SDCard with the plebble OS; 3=plug and run.

1-step guide to run a Plebble node on debian (VM): 1-wget; 2-chmod +x setup; ./setup

Links to the detailed guide are listed above.

The software is the Plebble Operating System for Raspberry Pi, based on the secure Operating System Raspbian Debian GNU/Linux. Alternatively you can run on regular computer or VM.
