Blockstack

Blockstack is a new internet for decentralized apps where users own their data

Start : N/A End : N/A

Blockstack???s mission is to foster an open and decentralized Internet that establishes and protects privacy, security and freedom for all internet users.
Blockstack is a full-stack decentralized computing network that enables a new generation of applications where developers and users can interact fairly and securely. Blockstack???s core protocols and developer tools enable a fair and open Internet that returns digital rights to developers and consumers. Led by some of the world???s foremost experts on distributed systems, Blockstack allows users to own their own data that they can take with them from app to app in the ecosystem, along with their Blockstack ID that eliminates the need for password-based logins. The end result is privacy, security, and freedom.
