What is Internet Computer?
The Internet Computer is a decentralized open network aimed at reversing the monopoly that Big Tech companies, such as Google or Facebook, have over the traditional lnternet. It is run by the decentralized protocol ICP (Internet Computer Protocol). According to ICP documentation, the protocol intends to help developers build directly onto the Internet with the help of autonomous software. Developers can build websites, enterprise IT systems, Internet services and decentralized finance (DeFi) applications. The ultimate goal of Dfinity, creator of the Internet Computer, is to de-privatize the Internet, remove the reliance on centralized servers or commercial cloud solutions, and simplify the infrastructure that runs applications. Internet Computer uses a blockchain called Chain Key Technology (CKT). Unlike other blockchains, CKT does not use older blocks in the chain and therefore operates at a much more efficient web-like speed. ICP is the utility token of the Internet Computer Protocol that allows the community to participate in the governance of the network. The coin can also be staked and "converted into cycles" which are used to run websites, decentralized applications and more traditional, centralized programs.
