Web3- The Era for Personalized Websites Powered by Elastos
Today’s consumer is 100% reliant on corporations and institutions to set up shop on the internet. Need a server? People must go to the heavyweight Amazon Web Services to get that squared away. You also need an IP address to be findable on the internet. Not an IP engineer? Now, you must turn to a Domain Name Server (DNS) to get that set up. What if one of these centralized entities gets shut down? How about the scenario in which your monthly costs get jacked up? You are at the mercy of the internet landlord. It’s up to masters whether the lights stay on or not.
These are the current parameters of Web2.
Is the current state of the internet an upgrade to what the world previously had? Absolutely. When Tim Berners-Lee first invented the World Wide Web, he didn’t have the backing to make it for the masses. Instead, it was Netscape that elevated the space into full-fledged commercialization. Then the Amazons, Googles, and Apples could thrive in the new paradigm of commerce. These new-aged legacy websites are now the gatekeepers and masters of our domain in this current version of the Web.
The current state of personal websites has several issues that can limit their potential and impact. One of the main issues is the dependence on centralized entities such as hosting companies and domain registrars for setting up and maintaining a website. This dependence can lead to a lack of control over the website and its content, as well as vulnerability to censorship, data breaches, and other security risks. Additionally, the centralized nature of personal websites can lead to a lack of transparency and accountability in managing personal data. Furthermore, centralized entities can shut down personal websites that fail to comply with their terms of service. Moreover, the cost of maintaining a personal website with a centralized entity can also be high, which can be a barrier to entry for small businesses and individuals.
Benefits of Personal Websites
Personal websites built with Elastos technology offer several benefits over traditional centralized websites. The decentralized, peer-to-peer architecture of Elastos eliminates the need for intermediaries, giving users increased control and autonomy over their website and its content. This architecture enhances security and privacy using self-sovereign IDs and blockchain technology. Additionally, Elastos provides a transparent and accountable platform for the management of personal data. The Elastos technology makes setting up and maintaining a personal website more cost-effective. Furthermore, using Elastos technology allows for the integration of decentralized applications (dApps), which can provide additional features and functionalities to the personal website, making it more versatile and customizable. Overall, Elastos technology enables the creation of personal websites that are more secure, private, and customizable and that offer greater control and autonomy to the website owner.
Elastos Version of Web3
What does the next version of the internet look like? Web3 is the buzzword flooding social media platforms and grabbing the attention of VCs. Projects such as Cosmos and Polkadot define Web3 as connecting blockchains and making them interoperable. While a novel concept, Elastos believes it’s bigger than that. The reimagined internet is about connecting every website, every blockchain, and every person on the internet, period. Web3 isn’t just a blockchain concept- this is an internet for all, not just some. Web3 represents the interconnectedness of all servers and computers, creating a single, unified network.
What if Web3 flips the script on the powers that be? Conceptualize the scenario in which the mom and pops shop could forgo the centralized services and institutions with the ability to create their own personal domain, app, and service. That will be possible with the Elastos tech stack in 2023.
Benefits of Elastos Tech Stack
Carrier 2.0 is the proprietary permissionless vehicle to manage traffic from one computer to another. HTTP is an archaic code that transfers data between servers and browsers. Built-in routing algorithms are used by Carrier 2.0 to find destination websites throughout the internet peer to peer. Storage is required by everyone as well between videos, data, images, etc. Hive 2.0 is another proprietary component in the Elastos code that reliably provides storage to every user. All participants on the Elastos Web 3 will have a vault and be able to transfer any data or storage from peer to peer.
The trend in 2023 is the use of AI no-code tools for automating website building, social media management, and email marketing. Elastos Web 3 Tech stack aims to provide these tools through its scalable Elastos Smart Contract side chain. Business owners can use Elastos dApps to automate tasks such as transactions, taxes, payroll and staffing. Additionally, Elastos provides a web3 wallet, Essentials, that supports multiple cryptocurrencies and blockchains, as well as access to dApps. Carrier takes care of IP addresses and traffic, while Hive 2.0 handles data and storage. DIDs serve as valid identifiers for participants to conduct business securely. Overall, Elastos aims to simplify and automate various business tasks through the use of smart contracts and dApps, all accessible through the Essentials wallet.
Use Cases for Businesses Using Elastos Tech Stack
Creators and business owners can utilize various use cases using Elastos technology to build multiple decentralized personal websites.
- One example of a personalized decentralized website built with Elastos technology is an e-commerce store that allows individuals and small businesses to sell their products directly to consumers without intermediaries. The e-commerce store can be customized with different design and layout options and integrated with dApps to provide additional features such as inventory management and payment processing.
- Another example could be a personal blog that allows users to create, publish and share content without being subject to censorship or data breaches, thanks to the decentralized and peer-to-peer architecture of Elastos.
