Blockstack STX

A new internet for decentralized apps where users own their data directly
Profile

About

The internet was designed to be decentralized but as time went on, it fell under the control of a few large corporations. This consolidation represents a major threat to data ownership, open markets, and freedom of speech. The architects of the internet got many things right, but they also missed out on focusing on security in the original design. As a result, internet users everywhere have been much less safe and have had their data placed in much greater risk. Blockstack is a way to put users back in control of their digital lives.
