Theses E: Hidden Potential Of Public AssetChains

E1: Public asset chains blockchains can reshape the reality we know

The implementation of a micro-nodes infrastructure at the national level (i.e. Public Asset Chain) has a transformative potential, poised to redefine entire industries and introduce capabilities previously unimagined. By distributing the functions of traditional centralized systems across a network of user-operated micro-nodes, this technology can significantly enhance national infrastructure and services, including:

  • National Decentralized File Storages: This innovation could eliminate reliance on centralized private cloud providers like AWS, offering a more secure and resilient system for storing and accessing data nationwide.

  • National Decentralized Internet Domains: By decentralizing domain registration, control can shift from a single private entity to a more distributed and democratic system, enhancing freedom and fairness in internet use.

  • National Decentralized GSM and GPS Triangulation Services: These services could improve accuracy and reliability, and reduce vulnerabilities by leveraging a decentralized network of nodes for signal processing and location services.

  • National Decentralized Emergency Response: A distributed system could enable faster, more efficient coordination of emergency services, leveraging real-time data from across the network to optimize responses.

  • National Decentralized Parliament Procedures and Voting System: Enhancing the democratic process, this system could facilitate secure, transparent voting and legislative procedures, accessible to all citizens.

  • Instant Democratic Sentiment Rate Assessment and Immutable Data Pools: By constantly gauging public opinion through decentralized data collection, policymakers can make more informed decisions, grounded in the real-time sentiments of their constituents.

  • Decentralized Legally Causable Inbox: Integrating with existing email services, this system would offer a secure, legally binding communication platform that could serve as a standalone app or an API for current providers, revolutionizing the concept of digital correspondence.

E2: Decentralizing the Internet: The End of ICANN and DNS Monopoly

The expansion of micro nodes within a unified infrastructure marks the beginning of a significant shift toward the decentralization of the internet. This shift, conceptualized as the 'unlocking' of the internet, refers to a broadening of public understanding about the internet's structure and functionality. This process of enlightenment involves several key ‘milestones’:

Understanding Current Limitations:

  • Improper perspective: The general comprehension of the internet is often constrained by a narrow view that equates web data access solely with public domain registrars. This limited perspective overlooks the vast and varied components that make up the internet's backbone.

  • Domain Registration Control: The domain name system (DNS) and its governance, predominantly by a select few entities such as ICANN, is identified as a bottleneck. These actors are criticized for artificially inflating the cost and complexity of registering new domains to prohibitive levels. This practice not only escalates the expense associated with securing new or unique domain names but also artificially inflates their perceived value.

  • The Silent Limits of Web Browsers: The prevailing use of DNS domains is largely a product of tacit agreements with web browser developers, who prioritize DNS-based navigation. This consensus underpins the current web browsing experience but is not inherently the only possible method.

Understanding possibilities:

  • Blockchain as an Alternative: Understanding that the internet could function similarly to blockchain and side-chain technologies. By moving away from DNS, individuals could adopt alternative blockchain networks for web browsing, and register their own custom domain names on these blockchains without limits.

  • Blockchain Web Browser: There is a space for web browsers akin to MetaMask, which would facilitate the easy importation and browsing of various blockchain-based domain registrars. This would allow users to seamlessly navigate different 'web chains' by entering domain addresses specific to each chain.

  • Unlimited, Free Domain Names: Utilizing blockchain technology as a substitute for DNS and public domain registration opens up the possibility for anyone to secure any domain name, like 'Blockchain', on a chosen blockchain or sidechain, provided the name hasn’t already been claimed.

  • Freedom in Naming Conventions: Unlike the current domain system, which follows a [word].[domain extension] format, blockchain-enabled web browsing breaks these bounds. It allows for more creative naming approaches, including single-word domains or the use of multiple periods, enriching the diversity of domain names.
