In the Battle Against Censorship, This Project Turns the Tide on the Big Tech Monopoly
ArGoApp provides a one-stop-shop for websites and applications to deploy on a censorship-resistant blockchain with 100% uptime
When it comes to freedom of speech, concerns over censorship have been gradually rising over the years, with the likes of Amazon, Google, Facebook, Apple and Alibaba tightening their grip over the technology industry and forming a formidable monopoly. The situation is becoming especially grim when it comes to political speech, particularly when popular social media platforms such as Twitter are told they have a duty to remove “extremism” by the big tech monopoly that they ultimately report to.
This “extremism” is often wrongly-classed and legitimate speech, but it has seen people censored, blocked and downranked, with accounts suspended or even terminated; historians, war crimes investigators, sex educators and punk musicians and more have all been in the firing line by increasingly powerful algorithms that find and take action against what they consider extremist.
Thankfully, ArGoApp is utilising the power of blockchain technology, which has in recent years permeated all corners of the industry from finance to healthcare, to provide immediate access to censorship-resistant web hosting. The platform represents a step forward in a world dominated by a select few tech giants, offering developers a way to deploy websites and applications that is completely decentralized and that rids of recurring costs related to server hosting, security and storage.
Providing a brighter future for free speech
Built on decentralised cloud networks, ArGoApp’s web app hosting and storage aggregation platform means that users can stop relying on the expensive subscription plans that cloud provider giants dominate the industry with; users instead can benefit from access to fast website and app deployment with pre-rendered front-end web pages with flexible payment options.
But ArGoApp benefits more than just developers looking to escape the clutches of big tech: with a server-less app deployment platform, anyone can build and deploy their ideas on ArGoApp with no risk of a centralized entity controlling or even taking down their site or app. During a time that sees more government and corporate control over the internet, ArGoApp provides a decentralized, uncensored, and permanent platform for the future of Web3 to be created upon.
Auditable, with no downtime
ArGoApp enables users and developers unfamiliar with blockchain technology to dive into a future of decentralized web and app hosting, by offering a simple and intuitive user Interface for any deployment on Arweave Protocol. By cutting out the need for additional programming knowledge, ArGoApp opens the doors for the world’s millions of developers to build and deploy a web app on the blockchain; ArGoApp works with Jamstack frameworks and users can pick from leading storage protocols including Arweave, Skynet, IPFS and more.
The beauty of blockchain technology lies in that, by nature, it is completely verifiable. Blockchains are publicly accessible and, with ArGoApp, everything is fully auditable. Also in stark contrast to the recurring outages of centralized servers owned by the likes of AWS, the likes of which have cost businesses around the world millions of dollars in lost revenue, ArGoApp deploys on decentralized cloud infrastructure; this ensures zero downtime and eradicates the risk of outages.
In the face of government overreach, ArGoApp serves as a beacon of hope to developers, institutions and big thinkers looking for somewhere to build, deploy and store the innovations that big tech looks to suppress. Led by an all-star team hailing from India, ArGoApp is partnered with several other blockchain businesses that aim to disrupt the world, including Polygon, Skynet, DIA and Arweave.
