Subject description: Decentralized Version of Websites & dapps
 

Introducing the Dweb

These are some of the problems and use-cases addressed by a new wave of projects, products and platforms building on or with web technologies but with a twist: They’re using decentralized or distributed network architectures instead of the centralized networks we use now, in order to let the users control their online experience without intermediaries, whether government or corporate. This new structural approach gives rise to the idea of a ‘decentralized web’, often conveniently shortened to ‘dweb’.
https://hacks.mozilla.org/2018/07/introducing-the-d-web/

Popular decentralized apps
https://app.co/all

https://dweb.archive.org/

Why having Dweb?
The Internet Archive, or Archive.org, is a non-profit organization that stores snapshots of web pages and other media so that you can view them at different states in time even if they have been deleted or been changed. Even though sites like Archive.org exist and content posted on the Internet is typically there forever, lawsuits, censorship, DDOS attacks, and Internet outages could cause content to be removed or become inaccessible.

How is it done?
For these reasons, Archive.org is testing a decentralized version, or DWeb version, of their web site that allows their content to be delivered over peer-to-peer connections with different hosts sharing portions of or the same content. This decentralized version of Archive.org is running on the domain https://dweb.me/ or https://dweb.archive.org/ and uses a combination of HTTP and peer-to-peer protocols such as yjs, IPFS, WebTorrent, and GUN to deliver the content.

ZeroNet :
Open, free and uncensorable websites, using Bitcoin cryptography and BitTorrent network

If Dweb is new to you, you may try ZeroNet. A ZeroNet bundle is available, and installation is easy. You make zeronet.sh executable with chmod +x zeronet.sh, then you launch it with ./zeronet.sh. To make you anonymous, Tor is an option.

Play is one site to look for in ZeroNet.

PostPosted: Mon 24 Sep 2018, 17:51    Post subject: Identity in the Decentralized Web  

http://blog.archive.org/2018/08/25/identity-in-the-decentralized-web/

As The Death Ship demonstrates, the concept of verifiable identity is a cornerstone of modern life. Today we know well the process of signing in to shopping websites, checking email, doing some banking, or browsing our social network. Without some notion of identity, these basic tasks would be impossible.

That’s why at the Decentralized Web Summit earlier this year, questions of identity were a central topic. Unlike the current environment, in a decentralized web users control their personal data and make it available to third-parties on a need-to-know basis. This is sometimes referred to as self-sovereign identity: the user, not web services, owns their personal information.

PostPosted: Sun 30 Sep 2018, 10:15    Post subject: Solid
Subject description: To take back the power of the web from corporations
 

There is an urgency to turn things around,and the inventor of the Word Wide Web is working on it. His project is called Solid.

For years now, Berners-Lee and other internet activists have been dreaming of a digital utopia where individuals control their own data and the internet remains free and open. But for Berners-Lee, the time for dreaming is over.

“We have to do it now,” he says, displaying an intensity and urgency that is uncharacteristic for this soft-spoken academic. “It’s a historical moment.” Ever since revelations emerged that Facebook had allowed people’s data to be misused by political operatives, Berners-Lee has felt an imperative to get this digital idyll into the real world.

Berners-Lee explains that he is taking a sabbatical from MIT to work full time on Inrupt. The company will be the first major commercial venture built off of Solid, a decentralized web platform he and others at MIT have spent years building.

The app, using Solid’s decentralized technology, allows Berners-Lee to access all of his data seamlessly–his calendar, his music library, videos, chat, research. It’s like a mashup of Google Drive, Microsoft Outlook, Slack, Spotify, and WhatsApp.

The difference here is that, on Solid, all the information is under his control. Every bit of data he creates or adds on Solid exists within a Solid pod–which is an acronym for personal online data store. These pods are what give Solid users control over their applications and information on the web. Anyone using the platform will get a Solid identity and Solid pod. This is how people, Berners-Lee says, will take back the power of the web from corporations.

PostPosted: Fri 26 Oct 2018, 18:13    Post subject: Wikipedia on IPFS  

Content on IPFS is harder to attack and easier to distribute because it’s peer-to-peer and decentralized.

By putting important information like Wikipedia onto the decentralized web, we open many avenues for people to access, hold, cite, and use that information in more durable ways.

Even if the original publisher is taken down, the content can be served by anyone who has it. As long as at least one node on the network has a copy of the content, everyone will be able to get it. This means the responsibility for serving content can change over time without changing the way people link to the content and without any doubt that the content you’re reading is exactly the content that was originally published.

Coming soon: We’ve almost finished creating a web browser extension that will allow you to access IPFS directly from your web browser without installing any additional external tools. Watch https://github.com/ipfs/in-web-browsers for the announcement when we release that browser extension.
Source :https://ipfs.io/blog/24-uncensorable-wikipedia/

If there is something to learn about IPFS,it is censorship throughout the world has pushed developers to reinvent internet, to make it open again
for all.

Subject description: Support for Decentralization Protocols
 

Support for Decentralization Protocols

Mozilla has always been a proponent of decentralization, recognizing that it is a key ingredient of a healthy Internet. Starting with Firefox 59, several protocols that support decentralized architectures are approved for use by extensions. The newly approved protocols are:

Dat Project (dat://)
IPFS (dweb:// ipfs:// ipns://)
Secure Scuttlebutt (ssb://)

Firefox itself does not implement these protocols, but having them on the approved list means the browser recognizes them as valid protocols and extensions are free to provide implementations.

PostPosted: Thu 10 Jan 2019, 11:23    Post subject: Graphite Docs
Subject description: a decentralized document authoring solution similar to Google Docs
 

https://app.graphitedocs.com/

Graphite docs is a decentralized document authoring solution similar to Google Docs. The difference? Google ultimately uses every piece of data you input for marketing purposes, whether it’s through search, docs, or maps. Data breaches are common these days, and large storage companies are quickly losing credibility as a safe way to independently manage user data.

With Graphite docs, the application distributes and secures your data with the same cryptography mentioned earlier. Only you, however, can access it. You still retain full control over your data at all times, from anywhere you happen to be on the planet.

PostPosted: Thu 10 Jan 2019, 11:57    Post subject: BitChute
Subject description: a video hosting service that uses peer-to-peer WebTorrent technology
 

BitChute is based on the peer-to-peer WebTorrent system; a JavaScript torrenting program that can run in a web browser.[7] Users watching a video also seed it. Despite similar functionally, WebTorrent is not compatible with BitTorrent[8] since WebTorrent only uses the same protocol as BitTorrent but uses a different transport. However, the WebTorrent Desktop stand alone version is able to bridge the WebRTC-based WebTorrent and TCP/UDP-based BitTorrent serverless networks.[9]

The BitChute website acts as a front end and portal for WebTorrent. When users upload a video it is converted to a WebTorrent and given a page on BitChute's website.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitChute

Watch https://www.bitchute.com/video/KbzlgzTz81I/ on BitChute :
I, For One, Welcome Our New Robot Overlords......and so should you! Just kidding. Today we explore the cute and cuddly side of the propaganda push to normalize robots in our everyday life...and the darker side of this phenomenon that they're trying to distract us from.

Subject description: decentralized exchange that enables trading freedom for connected blockchains
 

https://blocknet.co/

The Blocknet Protocol is a true peer-to-peer protocol between nodes on different blockchains. This enables the transfer of data and value between blockchains and opens the door to multi-chain architectures.

Many components come together to form a single decentralized protocol.
Use powerful APIs to integrate blockchains into any other blockchain or application.


Introducing Block DX, the first dApp built on the Blocknet Protocol. Block DX is the first true decentralized exchange that enables trading freedom for connected blockchains. Listing on Block DX is free and does not require permission or control.
