The Dawning of the dWeb

in #dweb2 years ago (edited)

On the other side of the seemingly innocuous or otherwise beautiful hill of freedom, lurks the distributed web. Slowly making its ascent to the crest, where it will forevermore change the entire web's landscape. Every precious minute, it moves closer and closer towards its inevitable debut, ultimately changing everything in its path. Some people want to Make America Great Again and I can say with certainty that the "dWeb" is at the very essence of that goal. As a community, through all the government's overreach and the hellfire of attempts by the media to assassinate the character of our developers, along with the purpose of what was once known as the AriseBank project, we've birthed something far greater than just a decentralized banking system.

It was through the government's seizure of our nearly ten months of software development that helped us understand the importance of a censorship-resistant internet. It was the brutal attack on blockchain innovators across the country that made people like me stand up for what we knew was right, regardless of the fear, uncertainty and doubt that some instigators wanted to pour on top of our fight for change. It was through that fight for change, where we continued to battle forward through the obstacles of the SEC lawsuit, where we ultimately decided that we would hold off on rebuilding AriseBank and would instead find a way to protect all of our future work for the community. Through the blood, sweat and tears, a peer-to-peer web protocol (dWeb), an off-chain decentralized content-addressable storage system (dDrive), an off-chain decentralized domain name system (dNames), a decentralized web browser (dBrowser), an off-chain database management system (dDatabase), an off-chain decentralized web repository (dPack) and a blockchain that you will all soon know as "Arisen", have arisen from the ashes.

All of these collectively form a toolset for creating fully decentralized websites (dSites) and decentralized web applications (dApps) that can scale the globe, without a single central point of failure. While some blockchains like Ethereum and EOS have nearly accomplished a toolset like this, it lacked many features like a dDBMS (decentralized database management system), as well as several other components that we were FORCED to create, for the survival of our ideas. They say the best ideas were formed in a time of struggle, where necessity was the reason for the innovation that took place. In truth, this is a Cinderella story that no other decentralized software project can claim, although today, as a community -- it is ours to celebrate. This entire movement was brought to life by so many people in the blockchain community, who stood with force and made sure our ideas would see the light of day, when so many others stood in opposition of those ideas.

As a result, it's a fresh new start for an internet that has been hampered by censorship, trust issues and regulators. A brand new place where we can gather together to change the world. A place where hosting companies, big tech and governments are unable to control a massive landscape that billions of people spent over two decades architecting the last go around. When you think about it, it truly is time for a new internet that programmatically works for us and not one that MUST work for "them". dWeb is truly peer-to-peer, where dSites and dApps are hosted between peers, rather than in centralized data centers. It's where our hard work, domains and web development can never be seized or taken away by those who are threatened by the existence of game-changing ideas and platforms. It's where the social networks of the future will be built, so that everyone's voices can be heard, rather than just one side of the political aisle. It's where banking, food, healthcare, energy, commerce and telecommunications can forever be built for the people, rather than used as weapons against a society that can't survive without them.

It was days like January 26th, 2018 that really put our lack of freedom into perspective for me. Watching many of you calling out the SEC on Twitter for what most of you knew were false allegations, truly brought tears to my eyes. I was awakened by your calls to the government, to give you YOUR bank back. I realized, that the work we were producing was something you truly needed and it was obvious to me that there were those who never wanted you to have it. I haven't stopped working to give you back your bank and then some since that day. Despite all of the threats on my life through various jails, having to eat what looked like dog food in segregation for nearly four months, not being able to see my son for nearly an entire year and having to ultimately keep this vision alive around terrorists, child molesters and murders -- I have pressed forward. I never stopped working for you and I never will. This community is forever my family and I don't care what they say this time... we did it, for the whole world to see.

My friends, our vision has arisen, from the bowels of the beast. I just have one simple request. Before we bring back The People's Bank, I'd like to introduce you to "The People's Internet":

The dWeb's Whitepaper is now live at and below is a detailed roadmap of some of our most critical launches as well. These launches have been safely placed in the hands of a governance of 21 individuals (The Arisen Governance) that I hand-selected long ago to safeguard our efforts. All of these launches will happen over the next few months, regardless of my status. I have worked hard to see to it, that our vision was protected and that it would ultimately live on forever.

Thanks for sticking around and believing in me. I love you all. Stay tuned for some awesome updates. I can't wait to show you what we've been working on.
