What this all means is that in the blockchain-based Internet, users regain control and ownership over their data. Their data is stored in decentralized storage layers, where they can keep control of it, rather than in central databases owned by big tech companies.
Cryptocurrencies, or tokens, are a novel method of monetizing a product or service. DApps issue native, unique currencies that are employed in the applications. They are then rewarded by the appreciation of their currencies when the application is used, in addition to any other fees they may charge. The cryptocurrency, rather than content, product sales, or brokerage fees, is the main driver of firm revenue.
