About DFINITY & The Internet Computer (ICP)

Internet Computer

The basics

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

What is the
Internet Computer

The Internet Computer adds autonomous serverless cloud functionality to the public internet – making it possible to build almost any system or service entirely on a decentralized network using “canister software,” an evolution of smart contracts.

Created by ICP

The Internet Computer is created by ICP, the most advanced network protocol ever devised. It enables people to build Web3 services and enterprise systems directly on a public decentralized network, which scales even to hosting social networks and media streaming. Hosted services are tamperproof, don’t need firewalls, support Web3 functionality, and can trustlessly interact with the outside world.
