FriendUP network manages to allocate and successfully spread the influence of its decentralized infrastructure throughout the internet. Thanks to FriendUP’s ‘’Massively Multi-User Operating Environment’’, Friend servers can establish connections directly to the network. By doing this, it forms a macro-computer which connects to the Ethereum world computer. This means that you immediately authenticate your personal account with a global one which connects to the Ethereum Blockchain. This is easily achieved through a mobile app, a web browser, and a Friend Native personal computer. In return, you get the ability to interact with a great number of computers. They give you access to data and various services.
Even though that this seems like a recent innovation it’s important to note down that such is not the case. The whole system was well thought out and almost brought to the point of realization couple of decades back. However, with the lack of network
bandwidth and appropriate networking protocols, its development came to a standstill.
Fortunately enough, it seems to be an entirely different case if we consider this idea today. The access to new technologies allows for building massive computer-powered grids. Thanks to this the development of this internet-based OS finally came to an end.
The Internet as a Developer-driven computer
Friend’s platform belongs to one of the first that connected the usage of this operating system with the internet. Friend will just build more on top of Ethereum’s decentralized infrastructure (Ethereum’s computing technology) by introducing its new user-facing system.
There are multiple processing powers and network services that are accessible to developers. Friend tries to lower that threshold and broaden the access to even more developers. By using advanced programming interface, Friend ensures that people get access to decentralized technologies and Blockchain.
The internet as a mass medium is in constant growth when it comes to popularity. Computing, especially when it’s decentralized, is no different in that regard. The main reason behind authority’s inability to limit access is the fact that many developers constantly create tools. These tools eliminate boundaries. There’s a constant distribution of these tools online as well.
Friend makes use of the said process and fuses it with certain elements in order to create a fully functional structure which will resemble a computer. Its intent is to provide users with the ability to personalize how they want their computers to look and function. This also means that the whole forced update system that most operating systems have is completely pushed aside. There are no additional downloads and update notifications that have the potential to mar the whole user experience. This user-oriented and personalized computer is completely independent and virtual. It features a built-in marketplace that allows for mutual support and trade among its users. With the exclusion of a mediator, it ensures complete autonomy.
The Evolution of Internet
The ever growing internet medium has amassed a great number of users in the last couple of decades. It can be seen as one huge marketplace or information brokerage which is solely based on data transactions. Big multi-million corporations usually own these information (data) stores. This system is what led many to stray away further from it and migrate towards blockchain. Blockchain promotes user-to-user information and service trading model, which is why it was so successful. With the addition of cryptocurrencies, the whole system becomes available even to the most common users.
What Friend aims to do is to set the whole evolution process on proper path and in the direction of decentralized computing. Their emphasis is on simplicity. They avoid focusing on organizing certain aspects in a way that they are functional but complex. FriendUP gives you a short insight into how future world might get impacted by self-ownership and individualism. The freedom of choice would be a stable constant where digital mobility preserves itself in a world that is prone to constant change.
