So What Makes Up The dWeb?


dWeb (Web 3.0 Overarching Protocol)

The dWeb protocol is just like the HTTP/HTTPS protocol except it is used to distribute files within what are known as "dPacks", from one peer to another. dWeb's protocol like HTTP/S's protocol is used in very similar ways where when accessing an entity broadcasted over HTTP/S, you simply address that entity with a protocol-prefix of http:// or https:// and with dWeb you access a an entity with a protocol-prefix of dweb://.

Entities hosted over HTTP/S, typically use servers, hosting providers or data centers to do so, while dWeb stores these entities on each and every peer who is accessing the entity and then chooses to host them. This eliminates the need for web hosting completely.

dDNS (Distributed/Decentralized DNS)

Regular DNS systems are controlled by centralized entities like domain name providers and hosting companies. That means, authorities can subpoena these entities and gain control of whatever you're hosting, even if it's hosted elsewhere. As long as they can control the DNS, they can control you and what you publish to the internet. With dDNS, also known as "Distributed/Decentralized DNS", you're able to use dTLDs (.dweb, .web3, .dcom, .dnet, .dorg, etc), the decentralized cousin to TLDs (.com, .net, .org). dTLDs, unlike TLDs are free to register and manage and do not require a blockchain, although records are backed up through several DNS-ready blockchain networks, like dWeb's very own DNS-ready blockchain network - Telechain.

Arisen (Decentralized Financial Network)

The centralization of financial networks has haunted and controlled the citizens of the world for as long as currency was in circulation. While humans have always had the ability and legal right in most countries to issue private currency, the biggest issue surrounding the issuance of private currency so that it retains value, was to protect from currency manipulation like counterfeiting. Blockchain technology changed that, bringing an immutable ledger to the world, where a store of value could be maintained and even backed by commodities such as Gold. While Bitcoin was capable of around 5 transactions per second, the Arisen network has been tested well beyond 100,000 transactions per second on test networks and has now launched a production network, where the community around the decentralized financial network hope to hit 500,000 to 1,000,000 transaction per second. VISA is only capable of maintaining 25,000 transactions per second and has no hope of resolving all conflicts that happen on its platform. The added risk of hackers and attackers having the ability to attack the centralized databases maintained by VISA create a dangerous situation for consumers who utilize their services through banks or otherwise. Arise was first visioned in 2016-2017 by Jared Rice Sr and Stanley Ford. Rice and Ford worked tirelessly to do the necessary R&D in order to bring a decentralized bank to life. Once the US government got whiff of such an idea, they quickly raided Rice, confiscated his entire company, threw him across the media as a scammer and totally desecrated his family and his life. During that period, Rice built Web 3.0 and was approached by original contributors to the Arise project and asked him to bring his vision to fruition. After 3 months, Rice utilized the brilliant work of Dan Larimer, while working with his father Stan Larimer and Cryptonomex (BitShares) veteran Michael Taggart and Arise had Arisen. Arise boasts all of the tools that were promised in Rice's original Arise whitepaper from November 2017 in a much better way and removed the centralization that bugged him during the process. Arisen is loosely based on the industry-leading EOS framework, a platform that currently leads all cryptocurrencies in transactions per-second and is currently expanding the platform into a full-blown decentralized financial network.

ArisenID (Decentralized Financial Identity For Web 3.0)

Keeping your payment data safe online when shopping or otherwise paying for products/services through online merchants has been a major struggle. First they spoke on SSL certificates and then government issued regulations around HIPPA and PCI compliance that were supposed to protect our systems but even governments around the world struggled with hacker groups like Anonymous - including the Department of Justice. This is not to throw any sort of negativity towards governments or agencies, it's just to say that we have outgrown these technologies and it was time for a new approach. ArisenID is that new approach. ArisenID is currently available for MacOSX, Windows and Linux desktops and allows decentralized and even centralized merchants alike to integrate ArisenID, to allow Arisen-network participants to pay using their Arisen-balances with a growing tally of cryptocurrencies, including Arisen's native currency RSN, where merchants can receive Quintric, a gold-backed digital currency traded on BitShares' blockchain and decentralized exchange, for an instant real-world settlement. Quintric plans on offering a gold-backed debit card in the future as well. Allowing someone to pay using the same cryptographic-based digital identity, without ever having to share any information with the merchant and where that information never trades hands in anyway or is transferred over any network - keeping a internet user's payment information safe is not a futuristic vision, it's for download and can be implemented today.
