When HTTP first launched, it revolutionized how we interacted with the web.
But the technology has not been able to keep up with the increasing data demands of advancements in AI, the rise of IoT and all the technologies that have allowed the tech sector to boom. With more data being packaged, processed and stored on the web than ever before, the drawbacks of HTTP have become abundantly clear.
Web 3.0 represents a paradigm shift in the way users interact with, transport and store data in a truly decentralized manner. Answering the call for improved security protocols, especially for personal data, is one of the highest priorities for Web 3.0. By putting data protections back into the hands of the user, individuals will have more control over the data they produce – and how businesses can access and use that data.
And while there are some simpler, easy-to-implement options for companies new to using blockchain-based applications, the ability to transfer existing data, and to scale as businesses grow, is limited. Offering a scalable solution that can work in conjunction with other protocols, RTrade’s Temporal gives companies more flexibility with an open-source API for distributed data storage solutions that can be easily integrated into any existing application stack without sacrificing security.
“We developed Temporal to help give back data control to the users,” said Derrick Foote, Founder and CEO of RTrade Technologies. “Privacy of data has unfortunately become a luxury online in the last few years. This is why we’ve created tools to help foster trust and transparency in the decentralized web.”
Temporal is uniquely designed to be “plug-and-play” such that the underlying storage protocols it connects to can be swapped in and out with other protocols (Storj, SWARM, S3, etc.) at will, without having to change the overall Temporal architecture. In this manner, the API itself will never have to change to support new protocols. The platform can be used as is, or customarily built to manage and deploy blockchain-based applications and non-blockchain data-storage solutions.
In an era where security is paramount, and when HTTP alone doesn’t always allow for the level of encryption needed to protect valuable data, more and more companies are making the shift to decentralized solutions. And it’s easy to see why: it’s safer and cheaper.
