Bitzi is a freely-available open community "metacatalog" that allows users to describe, rate and verify any type of digital content based each file's uniquely-distinctive "bitprint" (cryptographic hash). Bitzi's comprehensive catalog of the available files from various decentralized networks (such as Gnutella, FreeNet and Napster) also provides users with a bit-level authentication system for determining if their downloaded files are complete and uncorrupted. Bitzi has a developer program and will be making its service available to the public in the future.
