Blockchain's three key elements are decentralization, immutability, and transparency. Today, we will examine decentralization in simple terms, its benefits, and why it is important.

This is Web3 Trends, a collection of brief but informative Web3 threads.

πŸ“ Decentralization Definition

The movement of control and decision-making from a centralized entity (person, organization, or group thereof) to a dispersed network is referred to as decentralization in blockchain.

πŸ“ Why decentralization matters

Decentralized networks attempt to lessen the level of trust that users must place in one another and to prevent them from exercising power or control over one another in ways that undermine network operation.

πŸ“ Benefits of decentralization

πŸ’  Facilitates a trustless setting

Each network participant has a copy of the same data in the form of a distributed ledger. If a member's ledger is altered or distorted in any manner, the majority of network members will reject it.

πŸ’  Reduces degrees of shortcoming

Decentralization can reduce the severity of flaws in frameworks that rely too heavily on explicit employees.

πŸ’  Optimized assets dispersion

Decentralization can also help improve resource allocation, resulting in better performance and consistency, as well as a lower probability of catastrophic failure.
