Our previous articles have highlighted the vulnerability of the entire stack and the degree of control held by major companies like Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Cloudflare to censor content without prior notice in response to external pressures.

– Part 3: The Battle for Online Freedom: Centralization vs. Decentralization

To construct the Web3 ecosystem successfully, it is crucial to prioritize decentralization, which empowers users to choose web applications based on their privacy, data protection, and anonymity preferences, leading to a free and open internet.

This challenge requires decentralizing services offered by internet giants such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and Cloudflare, with easy-to-use infrastructure alternatives.

Creating a decentralized internet requires a collective effort to establish new infrastructure protocols seeking privacy and freedom. Educating individuals about web applications and infrastructure protocols’ roles is crucial.

One such project that works towards this objective is Media Network, which is developing a unified marketplace for cloud services. This marketplace eliminates intermediaries, is self-regulated by providers and clients, and is powered by the MEDIA token.

Media Network aims to provide an infrastructure alternative for developers that prioritize user privacy and expand the range of choices for end-users.

To achieve this future, we must develop and implement decentralized infrastructure protocols that enable individuals to control their online activities and data, creating a secure and private internet that respects fundamental rights.

The future of decentralization is one where individuals have complete control over their online identity and data, and censorship and surveillance are unacceptable. It is a future where users shape the internet and hold corporations accountable to the values of privacy, freedom, and open access. Although the path to this future may be challenging, the rewards of a decentralized internet are immeasurable.
