Dev Pulse 62 — Privacy and Security on the Holo Network
The Holo network is designed to create a distributed system of autonomous agents (by connecting HoloPorts), while providing a bridge to the traditional internet, where centralized platforms have outsized influence. In fact, as we will discuss in this post, these goals are compatible, thanks to the design of the Holo network. Namely, the gateway architecture of Holo allows for secure and private networking today, while enabling decentralized control of the network for a not-too-distant tomorrow.
