The rise of blockchains has created an inflection point that is driving the creation of a new "decentralized Internet". With the rise of decentralized blockchain- based cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, momentum for the creation of a decentralized Internet has surged. Numerous projects have appeared that offer pieces of this decentralized Internet, from name lookup services to a world-wide shared storage system. But missing from amongst all of these pieces is a decentralized data layer for the decentralized applications being built on top of the blockchain.
The SDFS network is designed to provide decentralized applications with a secure, point-to-point data layer that enables the exchange of data between instances of an application across the network. Data and digital assets can be securely sent to other application instances and will be automatically shredded and encrypted using Topia's world-class encryption technology to ensure that the data is available only to the application instances for which it is intended.
By using the SDFS network, developers and manufacturers of IoT devices will be able to build security into their products from the ground up using ready-made building blocks provided by the SDFS libraries. These libraries will simplify the process of securing devices and software. Using the SDFS network, movement of data between devices, applications, and servers can be secured without requiring each developer or manufacturer to create their own security solutions. Instead, they can build on top of the tried and tested technology of SDFS and be assured that their users, devices, and data will be protected.
By combining blockchain, file sharing protocols, and libraries, the SDFS network fills the gap in the decentralized Internet and enables developers to leverage the decentralized Internet to power their decentralized applications. The SDFS network will create the secure data layer that will allow the decentralized Internet of the future to achieve its full potential.
