Blockchain technology has been revolutionary with the advent of cryptocurrencies and blockchain based solutions in different industries. The internet has largely become a centralized ecosystem that governments and tech companies control.
However, blockchain technology has shown the potential to transform this industry by introducing decentralized web hosting. ArGoApp Protocol is leading this charge as one of the first web application hosting and storage aggregation platforms built on decentralized cloud networks.
ArGoApp provides an alternative to centralized cloud hosting platforms that offer expensive subscription plans and dominate the web hosting industry. On ArGoApp, anyone can create and deploy their ideas without the risk of a centralized entity or government deleting their site or application.
Solve the centralization problem
The ArGoApp team was also able to quickly recover from the suspension of their domain by GoDaddy. The domain registrar claimed that the argoapp.live subdomain had been involved in a phishing attempt and subsequently suspended the main ArGoApp domain.
ArGoApp quickly migrated its assets to two new domains: argoapp.net and argoapp.io. The decentralized web hosting platform will also tie its landing page to decentralized domains such as HNS and ENS to avoid such events in the future.
Following the domain suspension, the ArGoApp team was motivated to aggressively integrate decentralized financial applications and decentralized exchanges to back up their web applications from ArGoApp.
ArGoApp has continued to deliver on its promises and roadmap since launch. Since August, the number of projects deployed on its decentralized web servers has doubled as more developers seek to take advantage of its unique features. Currently, ArGoApp has integrated 194 projects and 1,800 users on its decentralized web hosting platform.
The decentralized web hosting platform also raised $ 1.3 million in a seed funding round earlier in April. The funding round was led by Ascentive Assets and included Alpha Chain, Onchain Capital, Master Ventures, X21 Digital, SevenX Ventures and Innovion.
Additionally, ArGoApp has integrated two of the leading providers of decentralized cloud storage services, Arweave and Skynet, into its platform. Both platforms specialize in storing data sets at low cost and are expected to improve service delivery for web applications. Additionally, Skynet and Arweave will provide advanced cloud storage options for ArGoApp users.
ArGoApp has also entered into a strategic partnership with Namebase, the decentralized domain registrar based on the Handshake blockchain. This development will not only allow users to own a decentralized domain, but also to build their server website on top of it.
Additionally, ArGoApp released new features that make it easy for developers to deploy their solutions to their web applications. Users can also integrate colleagues or third parties to deploy applications or manage their accounts on ArGoApp.
ArGoApp has launched a testnet with the integration of the Dai token that its native ArGoApp (ARGO) token will eventually replace. ArGoApp has expanded its team from three to 12 members to ensure the success and sustainability of the platform.
More developments planned for the future
ArGoApp plans to release a full-stack development experience for users. This includes the ability to deploy static files and dynamic websites. There will also be integrations of other storage and compute layer protocols.
In addition, users will be able to access tools that will enhance their development process. This includes the deployment of decentralized applications out of the box, the creation and publication of static applications that can be operated using the drag-and-drop system.
ArGoApp will also develop a native market dedicated to DApps and add integrated notification systems to its existing products. To learn more about ArGoApp, visit its website and Medium page.
