Having appeared in March 1989, 31 years ago, the Internet has become one of the fastest-growing projects in the history of mankind. By 2025, it can turn into one of the basic human needs, at least for the vast majority of people on the planet.
Obviously, most people know what the Internet is. However, very few of them can clearly explain how the Internet works, what decentralization is and what is special about the decentralized network. It is these concepts that can hold the key to solving the question of ensuring maximum data security on the Internet.
A decentralized Internet is a blockchain in which data is stored in encrypted form. It means that only the person whom this information belongs to or the one who has such rights can change the data. Information cannot be compromised, altered, or deleted by a random person. Thus, almost total protection of information from hacking is provided.
All data kept on the blockchain network is encrypted with a reliable information protection protocol. On the one hand, this may seem to be very ambiguous, since by 2024 the first quantum computer is expected to be able to crack any cipher in a matter of seconds due to a significantly higher production power compared to traditional computers. However, there is still a whole 5 years in order to improve existing cryptographic algorithms that are resistant to quantum computing.
Now the question is: can the modern centralized Internet provide the necessary level of data protection? And the answer is obviously no. With the growing power of Internet giants such as Google and Facebook, user data no longer belongs to them. If earlier we could place a home page even on our own computer,
