The Internet Computer is created by the ICP protocol. This weaves together the compute capacity of special node machines operated en masse by independent data centers around the world. The protocol creates a seamless unified public computation platform in cyberspace. Advanced computer science and blockchain math make it tamper proof.
Blockdaemon is the Total Node Management Solution
Blockdaemon guarantees peace of mind, as you never have to worry about maintaining or upgrading your nodes ever again — we look after all of that for you. Our finger is constantly on the pulse of each blockchain we support to ensure all of our nodes remain perfectly healthy. Our extensive experience across protocols lets us expertly monitor, repair and replace nodes where protocol level errors may occur. For any protocol updates needed, we look after these in advance so you never see any disruption in service.
Enterprise Level Security
Security is our top priority here at Blockdaemon. All nodes purchased through us are 100% customer dedicated. This means your node is yours exclusively. You’ll enjoy a dedicated node which has a unique address, its own unique connection and authentication key. Furthermore, these are never reused. We ensure your node is not open and exposed to anyone on the internet. Any nodes you’d like to add on additionally can be done so quickly and easily as well!
A Trusted Partner
Blockdaemon is by your side on your blockchain journey. We are the only infrastructure platform for blockchain nodes which offer multi-cloud and multi-geographical support, with just a few clicks. Want custom configurations and branded experiences? No problem, we provide a unified, whole-org, collaborative rollout to manage a complete network. Whatever your needs, we will work closely with you to deliver the solution you need.
The Internet Computer is the world’s first blockchain that runs at web speed and can increase its capacity without bound to host any volume of smart contract computations and store any quantity of data. Using the Internet Computer, developers can create websites, enterprise IT systems and internet services by installing their code directly on the public Internet and dispense with server computers and commercial cloud services.
The Internet Computer hosts its native software within an unstoppable tamper proof environment, making it possible to create systems that don’t depend on firewalls, backup systems and failover for their security. This framework also makes interoperability between different systems as simple as a function call, and automatically persists memory, removing the need for traditional files, enabling organizations to dispense with standalone infrastructure such as database servers. These features enable internet software systems to be completely self contained and address today’s security challenges while dramatically reducing the exorbitant complexity and cost of IT.
The Internet Computer tackles the increasing monopolization of internet services through support for “autonomous software”, which runs without an owner. This allows “open” versions of mainstream internet services to be created, such as social media websites or SaaS business services, that run as part of the fabric of the Internet itself. These new open services can provide users with far superior guarantees about how their data is processed, and moreover can share their user data and functionality with other internet services using permanent APIs that can never be revoked, eliminating “platform risk” and allowing for dynamic and collaborative extension of the ecosystem in a way that generates mutualized network effects that enable them to compete with Big Tech monopolies, providing tremendous new opportunities to entrepreneurs and investors.
Frequently Asked Questions
The Internet Computer Protocol is a tokenized protocol. Users of the Internet Computer are required to pay “cycles” to install software, run software and store data (the amount of cycles consumed is deterministically derived from the precise instructions executed and quantities of data processed or being stored). Users may obtain cycles in exchange for the network’s utility tokens. These same tokens are paid to the data centers as remuneration. The tokens also enable participation in the governance system.
The Internet Computer’s mainnet now exists, and is hosted by standardized “node machines” that are independently owned and installed within independent data centers, which have been placed under the control of the Network Nervous System (NNS). The NNS is an open, algorithmic governance system that controls the network. The NNS is hosted within the network itself, and is part of the system of protocols that securely weaves together the compute capacity of the node machines to create the Internet Computer blockchain network, allowing the network to be autonomous and adaptive.
