Apakah alasannya membangun jaringan privasi?

Internet memungkinkan sebuah dunia tak terbatasi informasi. Para penciptanya mengundang kita untuk menyalurkan keingintahuan dan menjelajahi dunia itu dengan bebas.

Seiring berkembangnya Internet, menjelajah dengan bebas menjadi lebih sulit. Model bisnis Web 2.0 memberikan insentif kepada perusahaan untuk memantau dan melacak kami, serta menjual data kami. Dan di beberapa tempat, batasan diberlakukan pada informasi yang dapat kita lihat.

Tetapi itu sedang berubah. Web 3.0 terdesentralisasi yang dibangun pada Ethereum memungkinkan Internet untuk direbut kembali oleh para penggunanya.

Di Orchid kami berbagi misi ini. Kami menggunakan teknologi Web 3.0 untuk menawarkan privasi digital yang lebih baik dewasa ini kepada pengguna, sehingga kami dapat mewujudkan janji dari Web 1.0 dan menjelajah dengan bebas lagi.

Orchid didirikan pada tahun 2017 untuk membantu memulihkan Internet agar terbuka dan dapat diakses oleh semua orang. Sejak itu, kami telah membentuk tim yang luar biasa yang berbasis di San Francisco dan Berlin dan meluncurkan jaringan privasi rekan-ke-rekan pertama yang diberi insentif pada bulan Desember 2019.

Our Values

The Internet is as integral to modern life as writing was to the ancient Greeks. Our lives are digital, and the ramifications of the things we do and say online are as real as those in the physical world. Orchid grew from the dream of a future in which our whole lives -- both the physical and the digital -- could be private, decentralized, and censorship-free.

Orchid’s mission is privacy, and privacy is a human right.

Privacy is an easy target for those in power, who say “if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.” This is a lie. The truth is that the people in positions of power have the least to worry about being private. If a powerful dictator is caught doing something, they are beyond reproach. We should never forget the routine violations of privacy visited upon King, Gandhi, Ai Weiwei and many others in the name of “law enforcement” and “national security.”

Privacy and freedom are not in conflict; they are one and the same.

We stand in solidarity with causes dedicated to privacy and to other fundamental human rights. Movements that fight for freedom and equality, that fight against oppression and censorship, that help by creating the tools to level the playing field for all.

Causes such as Black Lives Matter; Uyghur liberation; political freedom in Hong Kong and Myanmar, LGBTQ+ rights in Russia and many others must be fought for at the fundamental, human level. They should cut across lines of politics, nationality, or sectarianism.

The past year has reminded us that humans are meant to be together, not alone; free, not confined; empowered, not controlled. It is this basic truth that motivates the people building Orchid.

The Orchid Team
