The foundation in a Nutshell

  • The Internet of Blockchain is a new anti-censorship permissionless initiative for the decentralized web.
  • The Internet of Blockchain Foundation (IBF) was founded in 2017 by Matteo Gianpietro Zago who is the founder of Essentia One, the first framework allowing access to the Web 3.0 with a real working product.
  • IBF is a legal entity registered under the Netherlands jurisdiction, allowing it to register members, accept donations and operate in the public interest relating to the Web 3.0.

Mission

Our mission is to foster the adoption of and transition to the Web 3.0, a user-centric web where users fully own their data, identity and digital assets.

The decentralized web is defined by the following standards:

Persistent, Not-Corruptible, Privacy-Focused, Anti-Censorship, Language Agnostic, Host Agnostic, Fault-Proof and Future-Proof.

Features

  • The Web 3.0

    is the antithesis of the current internet. It’s about multiple profit centers sharing value across an open network.
  • There is no central point of control:

    middlemen are removed from the equation, blockchains such as Ethereum provide a trustless platform where the rules are unbreakable and data is fully encrypted.
  • Ownership of data:

    End users regain complete control of their data and have the security provided by encryption. Information can then be shared on a case-by-case and permissioned basis
  • Dramatic reduction in hacks and data breaches:

    Because data is decentralized and distributed, hackers would need to turn off the entire network, while state-sponsored tools such as Vault7, used by the three-letter agencies, would be rendered obsolete.
  • Interoperability:

    Applications will be easy to customize and device-agnostic, capable of running on smartphones, TVs, automobiles, microwaves and smart sensors.
  • Permissionless blockchains:

    Anyone can create an address and interact with the network.
  • Uninterrupted service:

    Account suspension and distributed denial of service are dramatically reduced.
