So without further ado, let’s start the interview.

Thank you for joining us! Please tell us about yourself.

My name is Kushagra Shiv. I am a web developer from India. I have just started my coding journey and am learning about new technologies.

Let's discuss centralized internet first. What is your opinion on the centralized internet? What are its pros/cons?

The internet we are using in our day-to-day lives is the centralized form of the internet because centralized authorities control it.

What does decentralization mean to you?

Decentralization means a peer-to-peer connection and the absence of any centralized authority.

How does decentralization change the internet?

Decentralization gives creators more control over the internet, and with the absence of any centralized authority, transactions are more transparent. Also, privacy-wise the decentralized internet is more secure as the user does not have to share personal information to access content on the internet.

What is the best thing about decentralized internet?

The creators and users have control over the internet. And the user does not have to share their personal information.

Are you currently directly or indirectly working on the decentralized internet use case? We would love to know more about it.

I recently came to know about the decentralized internet, and since then, I have been learning about it. I am a developer and currently making smart contracts and web3 apps (dapps).

What are the biggest challenges in the way of the decentralized web?

As the decentralized internet is new, there will be some challenges. I think that the price for the transactions is a bit high, but it will be solved with time.

Do you have any apprehension or fear related to the decentralization of the internet?

The decentralized internet is growing fast, and as a learner, I focus on one thing at a time. Once I learn about one thing, I jump on to another. And every day, something new appears in the world of web3, and that’s why I sometimes feel that I'm missing out on something.

How do you see the future of the decentralized internet?

A promising future with more opportunities for everyone.

Thank you for your time! Any closing thoughts/advice for the readers?

I am a newbie in writing. I have never written a blog post or anything before. So if you find something that isn’t correct in your opinion, please let me know, and I know that consistency will overcome the weakness. Thank you.
