Completely peer to peer, the Graphen Protocol is the first system of its kind to guarantee privacy, security and accuracy for both data storage and manipulation.
Two enormous paradigm shifts are happening in the world right now. The first one is the discovery of new cryptographic algorithms that allow us to remove "trust" from the equation when interacting with strangers on the Internet.
The second one is happening within Big Tech companies' data centers: they are starting to hit a bandwidth "wall" and are looking for drastically new solutions that could provide a step function improvement over the current techniques.
Amongst their many implications, these two shifts will allow decentralized networks of personal devices to gain an edge over cloud computing data centers. This process of decentralization has ramifications of its own, such as: improved security, privacy & data ownership.
The Graphen Protocol leverages this shift in order to offer the first truly decentralized graph database. We expect it to offer hypercompetitive prices dictated by dynamic demand and supply, virtually unlimited scalibility, and increased security.
“ So, linked data - it's huge. I've only told you a very small number of things. There are data in every aspect of our lives, every aspect of work and pleasure, and it's not just about the number of places where data comes, it's about connecting it together. And when you connect data together, you get power in a way that doesn't happen just with the web, with documents. ”
-Sir Tim Berners Lee
“The clouds are dispersing into the skies - sky computing rendered on your laptop and smartphone, spread across blockchains, transparent and transformative.”
“When decentralized blockchain protocols start displacing the centralized web services that dominate the current Internet, we'll start to see real internet-based sovereignty. The future Internet will be decentralized.”
