I think this is the best place for my questions because on the other community channels on telegram I did not receive any answers. I‘m truly excited by the idea behind the project and by its new approach of how to integrate blockchain in peoples daily life while at the same time having the vision of a better internet. I can‘t wait to participate as a user in the ICP protocol and test its new functions. However, there are some question which interest me and for which I have not found an answer elsewhere.
So the internet computer does not store data on servers, instead, he distributes the uploaded data to a number of the underlying datacenters. Won’t this get to resourcefully with time and when the network grows in terms of storage place? Because today, data is only stored in one server network and not in all networks together.
If I as an entrepreneur am the CEO of a social network, let’s say Facebook for example, my business model is dependent on data of its users. How do I access the data of my own network and is it possible to use the data for different services, for example also instagram?
In a text was mentioned, that the own software can be accessed through secure hardware devices for example a yubikey, if I lose this yubikey, will then my software and as a result, my whole business be gone?
In a presentation of dfinity it was mentioned that on the internet computer you do not need any passwords any more and you carry something like an E-ID with you all the time, well this makes sense because you do not need to access servers anymore but how does the internet computer know that it is me while im using the protocol and if it is trough the IP address, what happens when im in holidays for example but still want to use and visit for example linked up, how does it recognize me then?
Services like the google search engine will still be reliable on cookies and data tracking of their users in order to maintain their business model. Will this still be possible with the internet computer as well as personalized advertisements?
I would be very happy if someone could help me out here.
Anyway, thanks for reading and a happy weekend.
