Successful Decentralization Lives Right Under Our Nose

As I scroll through social media and LinkedIn, in particular, I see a thriving inclination towards the term ‘Decentralization.’ No doubt, cryptocurrencies have fueled the discussions around such a space; however, decentralization as a subject is not just limited to the financial sectors — a fact that I’m very well versed with courtesy of the endless discussions about social media decentralization.

For such discussions to turn to fruition, we have to have a basis — perhaps a concrete example of what decentralization is capable of, how it would influence the society, on the whole, and how this space would further escalate into something that we don’t currently know about.

And while I look around for a concrete shred of evidence, I find none better than our very own Internet. The Internet, and more specifically, the Web, is one of the most decentralized technologies ever created.

What exactly is malware and its common types?

with some care and the right use of technology, we can safeguard ourselves from these cyber tools. First of all, one should never download any random content online, you should only download any software from authentic websites and after inspecting it carefully. Secondly, if you happen to be an internet geek and most of your personal and professional time is spent there, then you can get yourself anti-malware software installed in your system.

The healthcare sector recognises the work needed to establish a digital infrastructure that builds trust in patients, particularly medical tourists, and exemplifies safety, both physically and digitally.

One of these areas in the digital structure is a system of digital passports which provide proof of vaccination against Covid-19.

Blockchain technology would be an ideal solution to implement such a system, especially a decentralised blockchain ledger, which would provide anonymity, immutability and more importantly, transparency.

Overcoming the Scam’demic: How blockchain and sound-based technology can protect digital payments ecosystem against hackers

Most people have heard about blockchain in association with cryptocurrencies like bitcoin. Blockchain technology is believed to be one of the most secure information storage systems currently in existence. The system comprises a publicly distributed ledger that keeps a record of every transaction in millions of separate blocks called ‘nodes’. Therefore, even if one node comes under attack, the information contained in other nodes will stay secure.

To hack into a blockchain-protected system, the threat actors would need to leverage enormous computing power to compromise millions of nodes at the same time. Precisely because of this, blockchain emerges as an ideal solution to store, safely and securely, all the transaction-related information.
