The first release of 24 tutorials about dWeb came out yesterday. It revealed the plans of creating a new foundation for the internet, one that is free from censorship and control by the large corporations.
Many are fearing the further development that might replace Bitshares and STEEM. Actually, what we are seeing is a uniting of the @dan creations. There is a move to create a web that is going to serve humanity as opposed to the corporate elite.
This has the potential to rock the establishment to the foundation.
At the core of this is what is referred to as dBank. This is actually on a fork of the STEEM blockchain. This is a bank that is a true DAO, not owned nor controlled by anyone. This is a radical difference from what we are presently living under.
A dBank is a decentralized bank that is a true DAO. Nobody owns it, nobody controls it, nobody runs it. It runs itself. Coins are not sold by a company, because there isn't a company. dBank was birthed by 21 community members within our growing dWeb community over the course of 6 months. dBank is a fundamental piece of our vision, as it attaches to the dApps on our network as a decentralized payment protocol and pays users for the content they create, write, design, record or otherwise as well as payout those who sell products via the dBank protocol. Did we mention that dBank is a fork of Steemit?
dBank will have a native token that is used throughout the ecosystem. However, integration of the other tokens will also be present via dPay which is a PayPal type application.
dPay is the Paypal of the dWeb, featuring dBank's native cryptocurrency, along with a our Quint/BTS/STEEM and EOS integrations. dPay allows developers and dSites/dApp operators to easily accept payment within their applications or allow dBank to pay their users for content on dApp platforms.
Hence anything developed on the dWeb will have the ability to accept Quint, STEEM, Bitshares, and EOS as currency. This radically expands the reach of each of these tokens.
They are creating everything you can think of under the D-model. Just a few:
dDrives/dFTP-distributed hard drive
And here is an interesting one with ties to the STEEM blockchain:
dSocial - dSocial is the dWeb's very own rendition of Facebook, a semi-fork of Busy and is highly integrated with both the dBank/DWEB protocols, will bring a fresh crypto-economic perspective to social networking and will free users who are used to being worried about censorship and privacy, while also delivering on securing their need for privacy and free speech, like no other social network has done before - thanks to the dweb:// protocol. We will go over all of those features and how influencers on other platforms like dTunes and dVideo will bring the masses to a better social experience.
Finally, we see this:
The dWeb/BTS/Steem/EOS/CloudCoin Connection - Will air live on Crypto Connie - you will have to tune in to find out about Stan's Potion #9 and all the juicy details!
It is important to remember that dWeb is an alternative to the http/s protocol that the present internet is based upon. This new "web" is a mesh network meaning that nothing can shut it down. The entire system is spread out without any central points. Notice how a lot of the basics that exist on the internet were designed. This is to prevent any weak, centralized points in the system.
Without hosting, it is difficult for sites to be shut down via the company that hosts the sites. It also gets around all the barriers that certain countries erected around the world to "control" the internet.
A big need in this industry is interoperability and this might be the first step. This should allow programmers to design multi-chain applications without having to worry about different wallet configurations. The fact that STEEM, Bitshares, Quint, and EOS are all part of the system along with the native dBank token means that the tokens are essentially wrapped on this new chain.
It also gives people choices. With this new system, one can operate on either blockchain and still profit. In fact, depending upon the application, one might not even be aware of what blockchain he or she is on. The application will operate the same way, regardless of which chain one is on.
Finally, dWeb is completely open meaning that any site can switch to it. The dBrowser still can access http sites like any other web browser. However, any site that is tied to a blockchain like STEEM, can be on the dWeb.
This opens up the door for true decentralization and another step moving away from the system that is presently in control of everything. It also makes the sum of the parts that much stronger and, in my opinion, more valuable.
With each passing day, we get more exciting news about STEEM and what is taking place.
