About us

We believe that Open is better

We’re the Open Application Network, an alternative to current platforms that gives control, privacy, and ownership back to you. Which means you can innovate freely, and finally have autonomy over what you create.

We believe tomorrow’s success stories won’t be built on yesterday’s platforms. And that’s why, to us, open is better.

We’re a group of passionate problem-solvers looking to build a better future. If you’re interested in a mission-driven organization with global scale, we’re excited to meet you.

The Open Application Network solves the unintended consequences of platform economies. The OAN is an open source public infrastructure for the creation and hosting of Open Apps. Open Apps are programs that put users back in control and are universally accessible across platforms. The OAN is built on open standards and is owned by everyone that uses it.


Aion is the digital asset of The Open Application Network. Aion is used to secure and access The OAN. As a public infrastructure, a global community of individuals, software companies, and institutions secure and maintain the operations of The OAN. These critical functions are enabled and incentivized using Aion.


The Open Application Network is governed by The Open Foundation, a registered not-for-profit organization. The Open Foundation acts as a steward of The OAN ensuring the highest standards in governance and accountability.
