Presearch is a revolutionary platform that is changing the way people search the internet. Presearch is a decentralized search engine designed to empower users, respect their privacy, and provide a better search experience. It is powered by almost 70,000 user computers (nodes) in more than 100 countries.
In a world where Big Tech search engines dominate the web with monolithic force, Presearch stands apart as a user-centric, privacy-focused, and community-driven alternative.
Why Presearch Matters
Traditional search engines are subject to censorship, collecting vast amounts of user data, invading privacy, tracking and profiling users for profit, while controlling the world’s access to information.
“The world needs a search engine that is created by the people, for the people, in a way that protects privacy, can’t be censored and runs on decentralized infrastructure to provide resilience. That’s what we’re building here with Presearch,” said Colin Pape, founder of Presearch.
What is Presearch?
Presearch is a blockchain-based search engine that respects user privacy and choice while providing rewards. Unlike conventional search engines, Presearch does not track your online activity or sell your data to advertisers. Instead, it lets you control your search experience by allowing you to choose your preferred search engine and customize your search results.
With centralized search engines, the users are the product, being bought and sold to the highest bidder. With Presearch, it’s the opposite: Presearchers own the value of their web searches through something called Search Staking, which enables you to earn PRE tokens, the currency that powers Presearch.
These PRE tokens are also used to reward people from all over the world who run Presearch’s node software, which powers the search engine with decentralized computing resources rather than huge data centers like those powering other search engines.
Advertisers pay for ads in PRE, completing the value circle for the project. The goal is to have Presearch be a platform that is censorship-resistant, independent and antifragile – similar to Bitcoin.
