News #67


Today we have prepared a newsletter with a lot of information… because we have a lot of news (and juicy information) to share with you.

So no lengthy introduction; let’s dive in for your dose of info on Berty.

To tease you into clicking: among other things, a considerable donation to advance our protocol, a video shoot, and the progress on the application.


📱 App progress recap

Here’s what we’ve been up to over the past few weeks:

  • Integrate the push notif to protocol

  • Fix Tor node restart
  • Write High-Level Documentation

🚀 About the Berty ecosystem


We mentioned it in one of our previous newsletters, but we can officially tell you: Berty has received a donation of one million dollars from Nodle . 🎉

After IPFS, Nodle joins Berty’s official donor list. Nodle’s teams have decided to support Berty to advance our p2p communication protocol. As we share a common interest in BLE, we’re excited to work together to build a new p2p standard for privacy! Needless to say, this is excellent news for our organization, for the whole ecosystem, and the community. 🔥

💡 Funds will be locked for 2 years and will be dedicated to the future of the foundation development.

🎥 Video Shoot

Last week we had the opportunity to shoot a short documentary about Berty. We can’t tell you more for now, nor when it will be released. The only thing we can say to you is that it was a fantastic experience. The shooting crew was incredibly nice. It allowed us all to get together in Paris for a couple of days. We hadn’t seen each other for a long time, and it was so dope. 🔥

Paris P2P Reborn Edition

The Paris P2P (reborn edition) took place last week. It was the occasion to see friends IRL again. The program was simple: free for all and beer2beer. We took the opportunity to do a testing session of the Berty application and shoot some nice images for the documentary. We’ll try to do it again next month! Thanks to those who came.


You can help us by translating the Berty app + website. Berty Team and the community will much appreciate it!
