Role of Decentralization in the Free TON blockchain

Not so long ago, the Free TON platform officially became decentralized. But what does that mean?

Role of Decentralization in the Free TON blockchain

Free TON users can often face the term "Decentralization'', which can mislead new users who do not understand why Decentralization is so important. In this article, we will try to explain this question.

Let's start from defining the term itself. Decentralization is the process by which the activities of an organization, particularly those regarding planning and decision making, are distributed or delegated away from a central, authoritative location or group. In other words, "decentralization" refers to a process whereby all resources are not concentrated in one hand, they are distributed among several parts, which eliminates the concept of a "central body."

There is another question: why? Why not leave one chief executive officer (for example) who will manage everything independently. Isn't that easier?

Probably it's easier. But definitely not safer. And definitely not more comfortable. The fact is that decentralization prevents the possibility of any one side influencing the activities of the entire network. If one "computer" is hacked, the rest will still save data. And this is far from the only advantage of the process discussed in the article.

Decentralization provides opportunities and freedom for everybody. The ability to manage our finances without intermediaries in the person of states. Decentralization may provide freedom of speech, thought, action, reliability and transparency of any action on the network. Decentralization is an equal economic opportunity.

Of course, we shouldn’t forget that this is also a big responsibility, because each user is independently responsible for his actions on the platform. That is, there is no way to contact, for example, the support service. And users can make mistakes. But that's about security and freedom again, isn't it?

Decentralization in Free TON implies that no bank controls transactions. This function is performed by nodes. Moreover, any user can start his own node.

In conclusion, one of the goals of Free TON is to ensure equal opportunities for all users. A platform of this type will allow residents of the whole world not to get into digital slavery.
