During a recent CNBC interview, Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger Advocated for Decentralized Social Networks.
These networks would, for example, allow individuals to publish information online without going through a central organization, like a corporation. In the same way that bitcoin is a “decentralized” asset not subject to authorities like central banks, decentralized social networks would mean no single platform could control users’ data online. The idea has support among privacy advocates but has a long way to go before becoming mainstream.
A decentralized internet, a freer internet, that’s what led to the internet being created in the place.
Sanger is currently the CIO of Everipedia, a blockchain encyclopedia network which is known as The Blockchain Encyclopedia.
