Gilles talked about this in his presentation in Paris. There will be centralized aspects with the registration of a dapp in the dappstore. I hope EthCC has recorded everything and is later shared that we can review it again.
I had a question to the team re: could the network be used for licensed apps which are running cracked software. They ultimately said 'yes, but we dont advise it'. It would not be curated on iexecs own dapp store.So for such workers and users that contribute to such a 'dark' iexec network - they wouldnt necessarily have the reputation/protection/support as the condoned part of the network. Imho It would pose too much of a risk to workers to make dark uses of iexec possible... Until SGX/privacy cpus are the norm for home computers
iExec is a free network like the internet. Only iExec is decentralized and has no influence from within. Registering your application is not required to use the network. But assume that the applications that are approved in the dapp store are for legitimate purposes.
Good question. Funny, the term 'dark iExec' 👹 In theory, any (dockerizable) application could be registered to be powered by workers on the iExec network. Even if it is not listed on the iExec Dapp Store - private exchanges of resources and RLC can be facilitated by sharing the 'order' privately.In terms of worker protection, I will need to check with the team about the specifics of that one.
Just strted reserching the proejct ..liek what I saw ..one thing is conecrning though that the first version was launched in Nov 17 but there is hardly been any adoption..can the admin please comment ?
We can say that many projects are still in development phase. We know there has been a lot of interest in decentralized and distributed cloud solutions and we are building the infrastructure to provide the best and most secure solution possible.
