The internet is decentralized by design. It took off with hackers running independent servers in their basements. Direct peer-to-peer communication was common among the first inhabitants of the web. The internet was a liberating force that connected and empowered people. The ability to send information instantly to any corner of the world seemed su...

However, with their password generating algorithm there is no cloud, no sync or backups. The newly generated passwords are not stored anywhere.It is able to generate secure and strong passwords for any site or accoun...
Centralization can be well defined by the control and power that has always been in the hands of the big banks. After the crash of 2008, attempts were made to clip their wings but things just stayed the same. In a zero interest rate environment, large public companies borrowed cheaply from the bond market. Smaller businesses found it a lot more dif...
The developer of OpenBazaar, Brian Hoffman, describes this market as "commerce without barriers". It gives people the freedom to trade between each other with no central player being involved. Nobody tells participants what they can or cannot sell and how people transact among themselves is entirely up to them. Just download it to your computer and...
We have decided to go ahead with our blog, Decentralize Today. It will deliver the latest news when it comes to decentralization. Ironically, we are launching a website about decentralization which at the same time has a centralized domain name (moving slowly to medium). Anyway, we will find a more decentralized solution as the blog goes on but for...

When it comes to bitcoin nobody is actually in charge and running the show but a peer to peer group consensus allows it to function.Whilst bitcoin enjoys very low transaction f...
Corruption and oppression go hand in hand. Nothing exemplifies this more than the recent news from China that their corrupt and oppressive government has recently shut down several online news operations. These include political and social news sites together with social network accounts. The harsh rhetoric used by the Department of Mind Control sh...
 CRYPTO CURRENCIES WILL MAKE THE DIFFERENCEThe country which brought us melamine tainted baby formula, fake cancer drugs and counterfeit anti-malaria medication has recently made the most bizarre of announcements. China has banned the importation of soft cheeses from Europe because of "too much bacteria". We have not been enlightened as to how...
 As the old saying goes, a fool and his money are easily parted, this being most evident with the proliferation of ICO's which seem to have blinded people from reality. Investors are throwing money at these schemes with gay abandon, believing the hype that they will make fortunes overnight. Despite all of the negative publicity even from the S...
 Back in 2012 when we first entered crypto, we were attracted to it because of the decentralized technology and the idea of cutting out the middleman. Maybe we could succeed in replacing the banking system.Since then, a lot has happened and crypto became more than just a currency. Even banks are now using the word Blockchain although none of t...
 Understanding the unstoppable nature of technology.  What is the inevitability thesis of technology? To sum it up in one sentence: "Once we build a machine, we want it to go somewhere." Instinctively, this sounds wrong. Don't we usually want to go somewhere and therefore build machines to get there? Didn't we look at the moon and say "he...
 Hi, I'm Miguel Cuneta. I'm mostly known as a co-founder at Satoshi Citadel Industries (SCI), one of the first Bitcoin startups in the Philippines. After falling into that never-ending Bitcoin rabbit hole in 2013, we didn't hesitate and dove right in into the unknown. We started as a payment processor but within six months, we had six differen...
