What is Internet Computer?

Copy link to section

Internet Computer (ICP) is a cryptocurrency project that allows users to establish web-based services, apps, and online services. The concept behind the network is to offer a decentralised alternative to the current internet through its ‘world computer’ blockchain.

Internet Computer’s vision is for a decentralised computer network that could host alternative versions of popular web applications, systems, and services. Developed by the Dfinity Foundation, it is supported by several venture capital firms such as Andreesen Horowitz and Polychain Capital.

The project’s founder believes it has the potential to rival tech giants like Google and Amazon Web Services as it doesn’t require cloud computing technology to operate. Additionally, using ICP for decentralised finance (Defi) apps could revolutionise traditional financial processes.

How does Internet Computer work?

Copy link to section

Internet Computer functions differently from other blockchain networks as it runs on a network of exclusive “node machines.” These machines, operated by independent “node providers,” are placed in data centres located globally and communicate with each other through a protocol referred to as ICP.

This unique aspect sets the Internet Computer apart from other blockchain networks. The Internet Computer network comprises multiple “subnet blockchains.” Adding new subnets increases the network’s capacity, enabling it to support more smart contracts, computation and data.

However, users and hosted smart contracts will not be able to perceive these subnets as they are seamlessly integrated into one blockchain using a technique known as “chain key crypto.”

How is the Internet Computer network secured?

Copy link to section

Internet Computer uses Chain Key cryptography technology to ensure that the network is secure and able to handle a large amount of information. Chain Key allows every computer on the network to check that the information being shared is legitimate, making it impossible for any malicious data to be added.

This technology makes the Internet Computer’s network extremely secure and efficient.

What is Internet Computer used for?

Copy link to section

The Internet Computer blockchain provides decentralisation by enabling developers to build online services without relying on centralised IT infrastructure such as cloud computing services, databases, and web servers.

Developers can use special software called “canisters” to create fully decentralised services that can extend other blockchain services and build SocialFi, GameFi and metaverse Web3 services, DeFi rails that serve their own web experiences and enterprise systems.

Why does ICP have value?

Copy link to section

The ICP token has multiple reasons why it has value. It provides a way to pay for the power needed to run the calculations on the network. When ICP is used to pay for this power, it is burned, which creates a scarcity of the token.

Users can use ICP to vote on how the network should be run by staking it in a system called the Network Nervous System DAO. This can also earn rewards for the people who vote. ICP can also be used as a store of value, like money, and can be used to invest in new projects on the network.

Who created Internet Computer?

Copy link to section

The Internet Computer blockchain was developed the DFINITY Foundation. This foundation was created in Switzerland in October 2016. The name DFINITY stands for “decentralised infinity” and was first used by the project’s founder, Dominic Williams, in early 2015. At the time, it was used to refer to his research on creating a decentralised World Computer.

Where can I buy Internet Computer?

Copy link to section
