THE DECENTRALIZATION OF THE INTERNET IS NOT AN OPTION, ITS SIMPLY A NEED !
When the Internet became omnipresent in human life it was commonly viewed as a force for good, connecting billions of people and providing secure platforms on which ideas, information and merchandise could be easily exchanged. Sadly, the web morphed into an enabler of a modern version of feudalistic system in which a handful of data barons control – and often manipulate – our data and violate our privacy.
For the most part, governments, which should protect their people from corporate abuse, are in fact aiding and abating the data oligopoly, promoting backdoors and turning a blind eye to corporations that mishandle our precious data. In more extreme cases – always in the name of national security – they use surveillance tools to monitor innocent citizens. This brought today’s internet to a state of disarray – a jungle dominated by governments, data barons and criminals – to the detriment of all of us. Luckily, it is not too late to correct the course and steer the internet back to its original decentralized design.
PRIVACY MACHINES is a group of companies dedicated to bringing the internet back to the people by providing GDPR compliant software and hardware solutions for a new, open, secure and decentralized internet which, in turn, will give rise to a decentralized economy. We call it the D-conomy.
We are guided by three core principles:
First, your data is yours - and only yours. It can be stored, transported, shared and organized by you without the involvement of third-party server infrastructure.
Second, privacy is a human right which should be respected by governments and corporations alike. But privacy should not be confused with anonymity. Today’s internet, including current blockchain platforms, is operated by anonymous users. The new internet will connect real, identifiable people rather than anonymous IP addresses.
Third, security is first and foremost the responsibility of the end-user. Internet users should not outsource it to centralized data aggregators and service providers who, for the most part, seem to have failed to protect them. We provide you a user friendly and highly secure key to lock your door – please use it. Privacy Machines is ready to collaborate with developers, entrepreneurs and customers who share the vision of decentralized internet. In a world in which walls and barriers seem to be more favored than bridges and roads, free and secure internet is more important than ever. Let’s build it together and return power to the people.
