A Single App to Mitigate All Massive Data Breaches Online

Blockstack is a web-based service that decentralises the online world so that users could own their online information and run their apps locally. For instance, if a site requires your information, you could choose to provide access to an online profile you have direct control over. Traditional apps do not guarantee a secure connection. Blockstack apps are stored on your local device and encrypted prior to backing them up. As a result, you would not have to rely on third parties to keep your data safe. To get started using the service, you would only require a browser portal. View full description
