Most of the internet landscape today is controlled by some tech oligarchs like Facebook, Tencent and Alibaba, said Hongfei Da, the founder of the neo-blockchain platform.
Hongfei said that at the Unitize Blockchain conference These companies divided the Internet into several parts and created their own data silos.
He raised concerns about how these companies are deliberately using these data silos to prevent competition. At the same time, they abuse user privacy for both commercial and political purposes.
According to Hongfei The best way to mitigate these problems is to lay new foundations for a more user-centric and decentralized Internet infrastructure.
Five attributes of the new generation Internet
Hongfei explained the important features of the new internet infrastructure It should be modular so that “everyone can create a part of it and then each part can be integrated to create a larger application”..
