Why Aleo is the future if the Internet
Aleo was born to fulfill a dream — to create an environment on the Internet that is truly private and private. Aleo is the first platform to offer fully private applications.
Aleo achieves this by using decentralized networks and zero-disclosure cryptography to protect user data. The platform offers users and app developers unlimited computing with absolute privacy.
If we are already familiar with decentralized technologies, “zero-knowledge” is a term few have heard of. At its core, it is some piece of data that proves the computation was done correctly. For example, that a private key was used to send someone an NFT, or that there is an attribute that allows us to update the state of the application. Moreover, zero-disclosure allows us to keep some data secret. For example, there is no need to disclose the private key that was used to send the NFT. Also, the data for the proof is much smaller than all the computation, so it will require much less storage space and be transferred faster.
Aleo overcomes problems of the industry
Look at the challenges various blockchains face in receiving large numbers of transactions per second, and how actively they are looking for solutions to scale. Tools like sharding have been useful, but now you need more to scale.
As more people use the Internet in their daily lives, applications will demand more security. Aleo wants web developers to build apps based on Aleo and make private apps a standard in every user’s life.
When an app is ready to be deployed, Aleo’s network hosts it with complete privacy. The network allows developers to easily upload and deploy applications with zero disclosure.
By creating a blockchain, open source and built for the Internet, Aleo is uniquely positioned to address the shortcomings associated with blockchain deployment. With Aleo, users gain access to a world of truly personalized web services without relinquishing control over their personal data.
