Blockstack is a new decentralized internet where users own their data and apps run locally. Take back control over your digital life. A browser portal is all you need to get started.
Dubbed as 'A New Internet for Decentralized Apps' Blockstack claims that the old Internet is broken. Their intent is for a net where applications are server-less and decentralized. Trust is ensured using a public blockchain (yeah… the stuff made famous by Bitcoin).
"Blockchain technology powers this new internet. For the first time ever, you’ll be able to access people, communities, apps, and services built on the blockchain from your browser. This new internet reflects how people interact with each other naturally, as they have for thousands of years. In open marketplaces and societies, people transact directly with other people to offer advice, goods, and services. Human interaction has never needed a middleman. The internet should work how real life works."
They even have a browser coming and examples so you can get up and running locally. Will it take off or fissile like that latest Pied Piper venture… will it rock because of 'middle out' (hehehe) who knows. But the idea is pretty cool.
