For a long time the centralized system has shaped us a lot, it has a impact on everyday life and influences how we read the news, how much we can search and even what we can access.Over the last few years there has been a tremendous growth in Blockchain technology and it has brought the hope.But monopolies place the companies holding them in a strong position to change the policy and steal the user data whenever they want.Something deeper is happening: the lose of data ownership.
The hard truth is that 80 percent of the data on the internet is in the hands of enterprises,the centralized search engines are making a profit by tracking user data and sell it to advertisers. It means we are in danger.
We need to take ownership back from centralized server controlled data monopolies to user / client side where the data is generating at the beginning. Infrastructure changes has been provided by new protocols,one of which is IPFS(InterPlanetary File System),A peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol to make the web faster, safer, and more open. Based on the quality of peer-to-peer method of storing and sharing hypermedia in a distributed file system,IPFS becomes a key to Web3.0,In other words, IPFS provides a high-throughput, content-addressed block storage model, with content-addressed hyperlinks.However, the web is not fully decentralized still suffers from poor search efficiency and is missing applications that provide entry points and allow users to fetch resources on IPFS.
IPSE(InterPlanetary Search Engine), a new revolutionary search engine based on IPFS by building new experiences by focusing on user privacy,decentralization and search efficiency. IPSE allows users to take control of their personal data with encryption technology and smart contracts.And enjoy unrestricted and uncensored browsing with IPSE,you make a request via the site, you can fetch the IPFS resource and send it back to your computers and mobile devices.On IPSE, users can search IPFS network files for free,and access the content with IPFS and other underlying protocols without the need to rely on a centralized service (and servers) such as Google or Baidu. Users will own their data again,no Ad tracking,no targeted advertising and no privacy issues. IPSE protects privacy with Blockchain technologies.At the same time,users can search more efficiently. If someone is looking for a research report, they must look through a lot of information on the web comparing different selections and the search might take hours. But IPSE will be able to scrape all of this information and retrieve data,find the specific hash address and present it to the user in a very intelligent way,even making highly accurate search result and favorable suggestions based on the user’s tags.Users can not only search IPFS content by typing in the file name,but also get the result from hash related tags.It makes search on IPFS network is intelligent and efficient.
Why do we deserve a new search engine?Computations may involve hundreds of processes that must be able to acquire resources dynamically and search efficiently.In a centralized network /system,people tend to make a “deal” with monopolies.“If they are able to trade privacy for convenience, for safety, for efficiency, in a lot of cases they’re willing to do that.”said by Robin Li, CEO of Baidu,biggest centralized search engine of China. But is it true?Do users really do not care and trade for their privacy?The answer is NO.Users have no choice but to use centralized search engine,they did not and will not trade their data for convenience,they just lost the choice to use a better one.
And now we know why centralized search engine need to go away.Clandestinely tracking users is simply evil.Actually users have a more advanced understanding of ownership and privacy.New technologies changing the internet,while IPSE gives users new choice “Take everything back”(from Google, Baidu, etc).It is just the beginning of Web3.0 revolution.With IPSE being a search layer on IPFS,provides a safe and efficient way to search,it could be a important key for IPFS,which makes the transition from client server internet to the decentralized web.
The merging of underlying protocols and Blockchain technologies as a source for hash content,music, movies, and more puts the distributed and robust internet at the center of both our work and our play. This will make the new internet always present in our lives — at work, at home, on the road, the data will be with us wherever we go.Then we can live in an truely connected and safe world.
