What is Stacks?
Blockstack is the software for a user-owned internet. The current state of the internet is becoming increasingly more susceptible to hacking. And with most user data kept by a few large players in centralized storage, security has become a prevalent issue. Blockstack solves this by providing any user wanting to access the internet the capacity to run decentralized apps locally on their personal hardware. This enables them to own their data, whether it’s photos, financial data, or even healthcare records.
After downloading the Blockstack browser, users create an account id, which acts at their public key and is the only account they’ll ever need to create. Data is easily stored locally or can be connected to the user’s choice of hosting providers, with the ultimate goal of total user control. The STX token is the “gas” for transacting on Blockstacks. Users can earn tokens by using the platform, and developers are incentivized to build decentralized apps. The STX token was the first to ever receive SEC qualification ahead of their initial coin offering.
Blockstacks uses the Bitcoin whitepaper as it’s guiding principle; the Stacks blockchain lies on top of the bitcoin blockchain and builds on it. Rather than adding another proof of work chain, and to avoid further energy draws, the Stack Blockchain uses Proof of Transfer to re-use already mined Bitcoin to secure the chain. In this way, the creators of Blockstacks are creating a new, decentralized internet.
