Why Reinvent the Internet?

The internet provides an infrastructure for the World Wide Web, which enables social networks, electronic mail, instant messaging, distributed gaming, file sharing, video streaming, and much, much more. These applications were originally meant to be distributed in nature, since they involve multiple end systems that exchange data with each other. However most applications use a client-server architecture and store most important information about the user in cloud storage. …

Fig-1 Blockstack Architecture

In my previous article, I have explained why blockstack was developed in the first place. DARPA designed the internet during the world war. Communication links were designed to be fault-tolerant. So, in any case, it should find a way to transfer the packet to the destination. This resulted in the transfer rate being slow. To overcome this problem client-server architecture was designed. To achieve speed loopholes were left in the system. Internet infrastructure is decentralized by design with centralized entities on top. E.g public key infrastructure, DNS. …

Let’s start with understanding how traditional web or mobile applications interact with storage. Whenever a user logs in to an application, the application gets the user data from the remote storage provider and display it to the user. All complex computation occurs on dedicated servers maintained in the cloud rather than on the client-side the client machine act as a dumb terminal.

Here is an example with two fictional characters Alice and Bob interacting with traditional web/mobile application.
