ately a technology that has been calling my attention is Gun.js, besides being easy to use it also has a very interesting concept about how we should see data, usage and rights over it. Today I'm going to talk a little more about what gun.js is, as well as discuss Decentralized web concepts

Gun is based on Decentralized web or "Dweb" and aims to make the internet freer and less greedy

The way the internet works today is dependent on large corporations, which store their data on their own servers. However, this has caused some discomfort for millions of people around the world, with the suspicion that these large corporations are using data and personal information for marketing and choosing what people see on the internet.

What is Dweb

Dweb stands for decentralized internet, and it's the concept Gun.js is based on.

The idea behind Dweb and therefore Gun.js is that the internet is formed by a concept of community. Soon the information would be stored through the devices of all users of the system.

Each one storing a bit of information along with the free servers provided by Gun.js itself This makes the internet not only freer but also cheaper for programmers and consequently for end users.

Since large companies today are responsible for taking a large part of the money that goes into the system and also able to freely access a large part of the data without having to know for sure whether we are providing data to be spied on or not

Gun.js

GUN is an ecosystem of tools that allows you to create encrypted applications that run thanks to a community.

With it were created versions of youtube and other social networks The database is formed by user information stored on their own machine, on other users' machines and on larger system servers, which allows information to remain reliable and prevents loss of information if a user's device is lost.

Besides, it's an amazing concept to think you're part of a giant database. If you want more information about gun.js

What to expect from Gun.js?

Talking about the future is always a complex task. Any opinion taken can lead a person down the wrong path. Taking this into account, I tend to be very careful when making considerations in this regard. With that in mind, now I'll talk a little bit about my thoughts on the future of the internet and gun.js. Feel free to comment on it in the comments section. Every comment that feeds the discussion is valid and I will read it carefully. First of all, I don't think this data storage system will replace the traditional system. I see gun.js as another tool that can and should be used by developers in their projects. Its concept is irreverent and challenges the current standard. But I think that's where its importance lies. Until then, the conventional model of storing data, controlled by large corporations, never faced common agreement. That it wasn't from another big corporation with the same system. Having a decentralized agreement based on Dweb concepts should in the future ensure that large companies implement more open policies or form hybrid systems of conventional models with decentralized models, so that they can guarantee their space in the market. Which is generally good for the consuming public in many ways. It is difficult to say whether it will be the weapon that represents this competition to the conventional model, but it is likely that other models will emerge inspired by it in the future and threaten the space of large corporations.
