White Paper

What it covers

What is Effektio?

What are we building here? What is EFFEKTIO about, what are its aims and goals? All this is covered in the white paper.

Why it is needed

Surveying the landscape of existing projects shows what is missing and why EFFEKTIO with its specific goals and plans is needed.


The white paper covers trends we are seeing, like decentralization, Web3 and Web5, but also increased censorship and communication interferance.

We are strong believers of Building in Public, what is the reason for laying out all the goals and aspirations, background and plan to sustain growth and development in this white paper. It’s also why all our code and project management is on Github and the tech discussions happen in an open Matrix room.

And that is also why we are posting the white paper as a Google Doc which anyone can comment on. Your comments and feedback are welcome – just keep it civil and constructive. Of course you can also just download the PDF version and read that 🙂 .

Can I get a tl;dr?

30-ish pages? Ain’t nobody got time for that! Gimme the cliff notes!

The Matrix protocol already exists and is used in practice by many organizations around the world. The EFFEKTIO app is in heavy development right now, with nightly builds available for desktop (Windows, Linux & MacOS) and mobile (Android, iOS), though they are not yet production-ready.

No blockchain at all, but via Matrix.org, a decentralized messaging network.

As a (mobile) developer, you can find our code on Github. The app is written in Rust and Flutter. We have a public roadmap and open tech discussion Matrix room.
