The Internet Computer protocol was founded by the DFINITY Foundation, a nonprofit organization that is focused on research and development for creating Internet Computer. The foundation's work receive support from researchers and cryptographers scattered across the world. Dominic Williams started DFINITY in 2016 to bring Internet Computer to life. After years of effort put in by the DFINITY Foundation, the Internet Computer protocol was officially launched in the month of May 2021.
The idea behind Internet Computer is to create a new kind of global computing system and decentralized internet where independent data centers scattered across the globe could come together and create an alternative to centralized cloud services. The resulting network has a major advantage: it follows open standards, and hence, prevents all conflicts of interest that could arise in the case of a centralized cloud-computing provider.
This distributed, global network of data centers is able to run all the applications that can be accessed through traditional Internet standards like DNS.
About Internet Computer
Internet Computer is a fast and scalable general-purpose blockchain that allows you to access the full potential of smart contracts, eliminating all shortcomings of speed, storage and computational power associated with traditional blockchains. Smart contracts are now able to securely serve interactive web content directly into end users' browsers. Internet Computer is regulated by an autonomous decentralized organization or DAO. The DAO determines the network's topology and also makes necessary changes to the protocol.
Internet Computer has its own consensus protocol tailored to its specific needs. The consensus protocol has been designed for optimized throughput, latency, and protocol simplicity. It has the following four components:
- Block making: This involves creating candidate blocks to extend the blockchain.
- Notarization: This step is for identifying valid blocks out of which valid blockchains can be created.
- Random beacon: The random beacon—an unpredictable, random value, is used for ranking block makers and reducing the number of notarized blocks received in every round of notarization.
- Finalization: The asynchronous finalization mechanism tells that an agreement has finally been reached.
- Internet Computer aims to eliminate the growing dependence on centralized server farms dominating the cloud computing market.
- Internet Computer is able to scale to millions of nodes because of a breakthrough called Chain Key cryptography.
- Motoko is a modern, general-purpose programming language designed for writing Internet Computer canisters.
- Smart contracts on the Internet Computer protocol are called canisters.
- All aspects of the Internet Computer are governed by the network nervous system (NNS), which is an open governance system.
Dominic Williams conceived the idea of Internet Computer in 2016. He wanted to build a world computer that cannot be shut down. Later, in 2016, he realized this idea by founding DFINITY. Williams is currently the President and Chief Scientist at DFINITY in addition to being the Co-founder & President/CTO at String Labs.
