Blockchain and decentralization – the future of social networks

Yesterday Business Insider Magazine published an article about the Blockchain. Future of social media platform Twitter will be shaped by Bitcoin and its underlying technology, according to chief executive Jack Dorsey, who was once again endorsing a decentralized social media standard at a virtual conference on September 25.

“A lot of our value in the past was around content hosting. So we would host the tweets, the images, and videos,” Dorsey said at the virtual Oslo Freedom Forum 2020. “Blockchain and bitcoin point to a future, and point to a world, where content exists forever, where it’s permanent, where it doesn’t go away, where it exists forever on every single node that’s connected to it,” the billionaire told Human Rights Foundation president, Thor Halvorssen.

Dorsey’s revolutionary conceptualization of open, decentralized social media is meant to transform the company’s relevance as a “content hosting” platform.

Dorsey’s push towards a decentralized platform comes after July’s massive security breach in which hackers took over dozens of high-profile accounts including those of former US president Barack Obama, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, Tesla founder Elon Musk, reality TV celebrity Kim Kardashian.

“I fundamentally believe that security is something that can never be perfected,” he said. “It’s a constant race. It’s a constant push to be ten steps ahead of hackers.”

“The whole spirit of Bitcoin, for instance, is to provide a trusted system in a distrusted environment, which is the internet.” Earlier this month, Dorsey told Reuters that Bitcoin is the most viable internet-native currency as it is “consensus driven” and “built by everyone.”

Blockchain and cryptocurrencies are obviously taking a hold on our everyday lives, including Social Media. Isn’t it time for you to get onboard?
