Internet Computer basics

The Internet Computer (ICP) allows Web3 services to run 100% on-chain, being the only protocol on top of which developers can build and users can enjoy fully decentralized applications. ICP ditches corporate cloud, insecure bridges and expensive oracles.

What makes the Internet Computer unique?

Smart contracts serve webpages

You can open canister smart contracts directly in your browser just like regular websites.

How it works

Users don’t need tokens and wallets

The reverse gas model enables free-to-use, truly user-friendly dapps, ready for mass adoption.

Internet Identity

The easy-to-use authentication framework that allows anyone with a WebAuthn enabled device to anonymously authenticate with Web3 services running on the Internet Computer using the WebAuthn standard.

CREATE YOUR INTERNET IDENTITY

Biometric authorization

Unlock authentication with your device via FaceID, fingerprint sensor or use a YubiKey. This provides strong security, as the cryptographic key never leaves your device. No passwords are used to authenticate on ICP.

No tracking

Remain pseudonymous using the Internet Identity authentication framework, which prevents user tracking across dapps and services.

WebAuthn

Internet Identity integrates the widely used secure web2 authentication framework known as WebAuthn for maximum compatibility.

Blockchain operation that’s climate friendly

Thanks to the unique architecture and novel cryptography, the Internet Computer hosts smart contract software, data, and computation, with energy consumption levels comparable with traditional software that runs on Big Tech’s cloud services and orders of magnitude lower than competing blockchains. Web3 projects that incorporate Internet Computer smart contracts can dramatically lower their carbon footprint, and help reduce climate change.
