Jack Dorsey announced a decentralized Web5 platform

Published

Blockchain subsidiary TBD has announced plans to create a new decentralized network based on Bitcoin (BTC), highlighting founder Jack Dorsey’s belief that the largest blockchain network will play an important role in the evolution of the Internet.

Background: Jack Dorsey founded Twitter in 2006 at the age of 29. Three years later, he created Square (now Block) an electronic payment processing service. On November 29, 2021, Dorsey announced his retirement from Twitter, Inc.

The web platform, called Web5, is a combination of the centralized Internet Web2 and the decentralized Internet, called Web3.

The product is part of a Block (formerly Square) subsidiary that is trying to create a BTC-based toolkit to transform the financial system.

While Web3 includes blockchain technology and tokenization to decentralize the Internet, Web5 is seen as an identity-based system using only one blockchain: Bitcoin. Twitter user Namcios broke the concept of Web5 in a series of tweets describing several software components that work together to improve the user experience and enable decentralized identity management.

According to Namsios, Web5 uses ION, which is described as “an open, public, and permissionless DID network running on top of the Bitcoin blockchain.”

In this sense, Dorsey has proclaimed the death of Web3, backed by decentralized finance (DeFi) and blockchain-based platforms, as well as “venture capitalists.”

When asked about the reason for creating the “Web5” platform, Dorsey responded with the following thesis about the decentralized nature of Web3 products and who actually benefits from them:

It’s based on single point of failure systems (eth, solano, *) and lies being told to people about who owns and controls it.

Dorsey’s reasoning for using the new web development model may be related to his belief that Web3 will never achieve true decentralization. Block’s CEO has publicly criticized Web3 and the venture capital community that supports its development. In December 2021, Dorsey tweeted that Web3 is not owned by individuals, but by venture capitalists and their limited partners. “It will never escape their incentives,” he said. “Ultimately it’s a centralized organization with a different label.”

I must say that in live photos, the main camera block looks more massive than in renders, but in general the design is typical for Huawei.

The platform – fortunately or unfortunately – is also typical of Huawei and Honor smartphones: it’s Snapdragon 778G 4G. Both models will be presented in two versions – 8/128 and 8/256 GB. You should not count on the presence of 12 GB of RAM in these devices.

nova 10 Pro will receive a 6.67-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2652 x 1200 pixels and a frame rate of 120 Hz. The display of the younger model corresponds in size and frame rate, but its resolution is slightly lower – 2400 x 1080 pixels.

The screen of the nova 10 Pro has a stretched oval notch that will house two sensors: the main one with a 60-megapixel sensor and an ultra-wide angle lens and an additional 8-megapixel one with a portrait lens. The embedded front camera in nova 10 has a familiar look, since it has only one module – with a 60-megapixel sensor.

The main camera in these models is represented by three modules: the main one with a 50-megapixel sensor with an RYYB pixel layout and two additional ones – an 8-megapixel one with an ultra-wide-angle lens and a 2-megapixel one for analyzing the depth of the scene. Apparently, there will be no optical stabilization system.

The battery capacity of Huawei nova 10 Pro is 4500 mAh, the device will support 100 W charging. nova 10 will receive a 4000 mAh battery with support for 66 W fast charging. The thickness and weight of the nova 10 Pro is 7.88 mm and 191 grams, while the nova 10 is more compact and lighter at 6.88 mm and 168 grams. Both models will run HarmonyOS 2.0.1.

Americans may lose Starlink SpaceX warns of the dangers of

SpaceX has warned that its Starlink broadband network will become unusable for most Americans if a proposal to use the 12GHz band for terrestrial 5G networks is approved.

US satellite broadcaster Dish Network is seeking permission to operate 5G networks in the 12GHz band, which is part of the Ku-band spectrum used by Starlink, OneWeb and other satellite operators to connect to user terminals.

In a letter to the Federal Communications Commission, SpaceX said that tests it conducted in Las Vegas show how this will cause very strong interference to Starlink users in more than 77% of cases, up to a complete loss of communication.

As a result, far fewer Americans will be able to connect with next-generation satellite services, and those who remain will experience degraded service and regular network outages.

SpaceX has claimed inaccuracies in earlier interference studies commissioned by RS Access, a holding company that, like Dish Network, holds licenses for the 12GHz band it wants to use for 5G networks in the United States.
