Our mission is to create a meta layer above the web that is safe for and accessible to everyone while also protecting the rights and privacy of its members.

The Overweb Pattern

The Three Pillars


Safe Digital Space

Real People in Good Standing

On the Overweb, everyone you encounter is a real people in good standing.. No unidentified bots, fake accounts, serial abusers, or throwaway accounts. Accountability creates safety.


On-Page Presence

Go Visible on Webpages

On the Overweb, when you opt-in to being visible on a webpage, you can see everyone else who is visible on the same page. You can access information they make available to people they don't know and initiate a conversation.


On-Page Interactions

100's of Smart Tags

On the Overweb, you have access to a quiver of smart tags that you can attach to content on any page.. E..g., notes, bridges, conversations, polls, meetings can be attached to any piece of text, part of image, segment of video or audio, or tweet.

The Web4 Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to decentralized public space above the web page. We do this by building the governance and infrastructure of the Overweb. The foundation generates operating funds from the sale of Overweb full access passes, meta domains, and reflections from OWEB transactions. The foundation also supports the open-source community developing the Overweb and protects the rights of its participants through the Overweb Bill of Rights.

Your Opportunity To Innovate

On the Overweb, metaocommunities meet and interact in their own sovereign layer above the webpage.  Meta-communities exist in networks of networks. Meta-communities can have single sign-on with existing websites. 


Overlay Apps

Develop Overlay Apps

On the Overweb, developers can create applications that have computational continuity across webpages. Overlay apps are Overweb-native distributed applications that are available over every relevant webpage. 


Smart Tags

Build Custom Smart Tags

On the Overweb, developers can build smart tags that can attach to any content on the web, from text to video, image to audio, tweets to tiktoks. Smart tags connect content and interactions , include that of existing web applications, to relevant web content.



Claim Space above Site 

On the Overweb, the space above and around a website can be developed.  The holder of a meta-domain  NFT (e.g.,, can locate content above the website and receives 10% of proceeds from adjacent spaces (e.g., to the meta-domain.


Overweb Council

The Overweb Council is responsible for guiding the Overweb DAO and the ecosystem towards progressive decentralization. The council taps into the collective wisdom and input of the community to make decisions that are secure, stable, beneficial, and fair for all stakeholders. The council's ultimate goal is to ensure that the Overweb is the best it can be for everyone.

Innovation Groups

Inspired by the Cynefin work, the Web4 Foundation uses a model designed to rapidly innovate in arenas crucial to the Overweb such as identity, security, privacy, data sovereignty, and rewards. Innovation groups are made up of 3-5 experts and enthusiasts who work together to develop novel proposals for governing or building the Overweb in 2-3 months. Token compensation for value.
