The Internet Computer blockchain is created by nodes in data centers located around the world that are running the Internet Computer Protocol (ICP), providing a secure and reliable way to run Canister smart contracts. To make the Internet Computer scalable, we increase the capacity by adding subnets (aka blockchains), where groups of Canisters run together. […]
Motoko, a new programming language optimized for WebAssembly and the Internet Computer, offers a seamless developer experience designed to directly support the programming model of the Internet Computer — making it easier to efficiently build applications and take advantage of the revolutionary features of the Internet Computer.
Chain Key Technology is one of the fundamental breakthroughs enabling the Internet Computer to scale to millions of nodes. The most notable innovation of Chain Key Technology is that the Internet Computer has a single public key, which enables any device to verify the authenticity of artifacts generated by the Internet Computer, even smart watches […]
Since the Internet Computer runs on a network of nodes in independent data centers located around the world, all subnets must process the same messages in the same order to ensure that they achieve the same state. To ensure that the nodes powering the subnets can agree on the order of messages to process, the […]
Dominic Williams (DFINITY) gives an overview of ICP, a governance token used in the management of the blockchain network created by the Internet Computer Protocol. ICP is a governance token that allows users to participate in managing the Internet Computer network, and as such is a form of utility token.
Today, the main means of identity and authentication used online are usernames and passwords. The Internet Computer has replaced this model with a more advanced and secure method of cryptographic authentication, as described in this talk.
Aug.21 — Dominic Williams, DFINITY founder and chief scientist, explains how the company’s platform seeks to reinvent the internet. He speaks with Bloomberg’s Caroline Hyde, Taylor Riggs and Romaine Bostick on “Bloomberg Markets: What’d You Miss?”
DFINITY’s ICP distribution and utility are some deep topics. Hopefully, this clears them up. Error in the Video: Seed investors are not liked 12 months, they are gradually unlocked over 49 months. This explanation was added by a community member, taken from the seed instructions to claim tokens. “Genesis Unlock created 49 neurons for you. […]
