Blockstack.org Landing Page Language


#1

We’re doing some landing page re-design and messaging, particularly for new engineers. Describing what Blockstack is and why you should care, without a stream of buzzwords is pretty challenging. Any tweet length ideas on how to summarize?

We started some discussion on Slack, moving some ideas here and hoping to get more. Thx!

The next generation platform for a new Internet

Blockstack is a way to decouple the data from the application, which makes YOU the only owner of that data

Blockstack is the new internet for decentralized applications which fix many problems of the old internet such as something something… when the internet becomes more decentralized, our world will transform… Blockstack is a hope for humanity.

Blockstack is a platform that allows engineers to build applications with decentralized, blockchain-based identity and storage

Why you should care: Using blockstack makes building secure user facing applications simpler for developers — using blockstack identity and storage means that devs don’t have to worry about getting the security right on things like passwords and user data in databases, nor set up the infrastructure to scale their app, as users bring their own resources to the app as usage grows.

Blockstack is the easiest way to get involved with building decentralized/blockchain-based applications, all APIs are in the familar JavaScript, so you can focus on building quality product, UI/UX and abstract the complexity of managing user data etc away
