I was happy to see this article on Cointelegraph, overall people seem to be more interested in what we are doing at ThreeFold: https://cointelegraph.com/news/peer-to-peer-internet-has-lofty-goal-to-bring-true-decentralization
In the article, some questions are raised that I would like to forward to our devs to have a look at.
Can you explain what is ThreeFolds technological approach to these issues?
“ThreeFold claims that you can run a ‘capacity’ node (aka ‘farming’) on pretty much any hardware, but without very careful design using special secure processors, I don’t see how they can stop node operators (who as far as I can tell, could be anyone and certainly may not be trusted) from accessing both the data and the software being run on their grid when a workload is active.”
“This model may only work for ‘open’ computation, like their example of running a Bitcoin node, where it doesn’t matter that everything happening is visible to the owner of the node (and possibly publicly). If workloads are limited in this way, it is perhaps more like a competing blockchain or smart contract platform, rather than a generalized ‘decentralized AWS."
Thank you already
