World's First Full
Web 3.0 Architecture

Most "decentralized" apps and "web3" projects are not decentralized. They still rely on centralized domains, storage and browser extensions, all of which can be censored and hacked.

Point Network decentralizes everything, becoming the first ever full web3 implementation. See for yourself and enjoy the web3 experience!

Centralized Domains vs Decentralized Domains

Normal domains can be taken away from dApps by governments at any moment or compromised. Domains on blockchain cannot.

Centralized Storage vs Decentralized Storage

AWS shut down Parler, you think it won't shut down your dApp frontend? Decentralized storage network Arweave ensures it is uncensorable and always stays up

Metamask vs
Point Browser

Google can delete Metamask, Phantom Wallet and other extensions at their whim. How will the users access your dApp then? Point Browser successfully replaces the need for extensions.

Passwords vs Web3 Identities

Instead of millions of passwords, use the same seed phrase on Point Network to instantly log into all dApps on Point, Ethereum, Solana and other chains

Centralized Outline

What is Point Network

Tor, Bittorrent, Bitcoin, Ethereum - all these projects were stepping stones on the way to the Holy Grail — decentralized internet, also known as web 3.0. Open for everyone, censorship-resistant, permissionless, privacy-oriented internet with programmable money built right in.

We are not there yet. There are many projects calling themselves "web3", but they still use:
• centralized domains which can be taken away by domain registrars
• centralized storage which can and does get censored by cloud providers
• and browser extensions like Metamask which can be pulled by Google at any moment.

Point Labs has invented and built Point Network, the first of its kind network which decentralizes every major component of the legacy internet: decentralized domains, decentralized storage, decentralized identities. Which makes this architecture the only network deserving to be called "web3", fulfilling the dream of a fully decentralized internet.

We invite you to learn about how we do this, try the alpha, and explore why everyone should migrate to this next generation of the internet.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Point Network?

Point Network is a collection of software tools allowing you to get access to Web 3.0: a new generation of the internet, which is free of censorship, mass-surveillance, permissionless, open for everyone and privacy-focused.

Point Network decentralized all main components of the modern internet:

  • decentralized domains (.point) that cannot be taken away or censored
  • decentralized storage (using Arweave's permaweb) on which the website code, posts, images and videos are uploaded and permanently stored in a censorship-resistant way
  • decentralized identities are used instead of logins and passwords. You only need one seed phrase to log into all dApps on all chains that Point Network supports

For more information, you can read our litepaper or whitepaper for more technical details.

How can you start using Point Network?

Click Download Alpha, download Point Browser for your operating system, generate your seed, register your web3 handle, and you're good to go. Many users have found the experience very easy, but should you have any questions, you can always ask in our Telegram group or on Discord.

What do you mean by "real web3"? Aren't current dApps decentralized?

Unfortunately, almost all apps that currently market themselves as "decentralized" and "web3.0" do not stand up to the scrutiny when you examine them. Most of them have only smart contracts decentralized.

Meanwhile, they still rely on web 2.0 infrastructure for everything else:

  • They rely on centralized domains that can be taken away by the U.S. government by any moment, or their DNS provider can get compromised, which has happened before
  • They rely on centralized storage and centralized infrastructure to serve their website code, which adds another potential point of failure, censorship and security vulnerabilities (see an example of a DAO that has lost its users $120M because of a centralized UI)
  • They rely on browser extensions like Metamask and Phantom, which Google can remove at any point, making 99.9% of users confused about how to access their dApps and even their funds

Despite this, we do not disparage teams and projects and we support their efforts in moving closer to the Holy Grail of Web 3.0. However, we categorize them as "Web 2.5": they're almost there, but they're not ready for the fight with the final boss: a coalition of Big Tech companies and governments when they decide to attack web3. But when those projects do upgrade to an architecture like Point Network, they can finally become completely decentralized and truly unstoppable.

Is there a POINT token?

POINT is the default token which will be used on Point Network mainnet. However, there is no POINT token yet. Please rely on official information from our website (this one), our blog, and our Telegram group for the accurate information about the public sale. For now, the network is using yPOINT, which is testnet tokens without attached value or price.

Closer to the launch, we will publish all relevant information about the supply, tokenomics, pricing etc.

For business inquiries about our upcoming last private VC round before the public sale please write to business@pointnetwork.io

Which chain(s) will Point Network support?

Point Network will launch on its own, L1 (Layer 1) Proof-of-Stake chain called Point Chain, based on Polygon Edge technology, with POINT as its native token.

However, because Point is not just a blockchain, but a whole software suite, we can make it support as many chains as we want. Point Browser is multi-chain by default. This not only means that you would be able to store, receive and send Bitcoin (including via Lightning Network), Ethereum, Solana, and other tokens in your Point Wallet (while using only one seed phrase to get access to all of the wallets), but it means you can access dApps like Uniswap in a decentralized way (their UI would be on Point Chain), but the liquidity and the final transactions would happen on the original chain (Ethereum in Uniswap's example, etc.)

Is Point Browser competing with Brave Browser, Opera, Firefox or Chrome?

No. Just like Tor Browser uses a Firefox fork internally, and doesn't compete with any of them, but is instead in its own niche and used for a specific purpose: to provide access to Deep Web.

Similarly, Point Browser is also using a Firefox fork internally, and is in its own category: just like you would use Tor Browser to access Deep Web, you would use Point Browser to access web 3.0.

On top of that, Point Browser specifically prohibits any connections to the old internet (you cannot open facebook.com in Point Browser for example, and dApps cannot ping any analytics servers via their IP addresses), making sure that all dApps on Point are sufficiently decentralized, secure and developers cannot cheat by still relying on web2 infrastructure.

If there is any link to the old internet, Point Browser will suggest to open it in your normal legacy browser instead.
