ConsenSys By ETH Co-Founder Launches Rimble Design System To Assist with ETH Adoption
Joseph Lubin is most famous for being an Ethereum co-founder. He is also the ConsenSys founder, which is a company for blockchain development. He recently announced via a tweet that Rimble Design System had been released. According to him, RDS is a package of various tools that can help with the development of Ethereum DApps in a user-friendly manner.
More About Rimble
The team at ConsenSys created RDS to be an open-source platform that offers creators of DApps various components, tools, and standards for the creation of similar DApp UX patterns. These are all tools collected via extensive researched and designed with developers in mind.
The developer team working on ConsenSys all agrees that DApp development needed developers and users to learn pattern from scratch. This can be for designers of the DApps and front-end developers. Thus, it can delay deployment of DApps that might have real-world use cases.
What The Experts Think
According to the ConsenSys Chief Marketing Officer, the Grant Program at the company will award $500,000 to projects working closely with Ethereum. The target will be companies that focus on research, interoperability, developer tools, usability, and infrastructure. Joseph Lubin made this official at the Devcon 4.
The goal of ConsenSys is to recreate the internet. They believe the current model on which the internet works is broken. For instance, they believe the internet lacks security. As a result, creators can have their digital data stolen with no compensation.
The company believes this model needs to change to offer rewards to those who enrich the online experience. With the help of ethical collaboration, they believe they can help grow infrastructure for that. Thus, they want to create Version 3.0 of the internet.
In this effort, ConsenSys is overseeing a project called Kaleido. This startup assists companies to implement blockchain. They are working with Amazon Web Services to help them achieve this goal.
Understanding Internet 3.0
When the internet started, it was mainly instant chat rooms and message boards. This quickly grew into collaborative data and an efficient tool for global communication. The internet could link the whole world.
However, this model has a flaw. The apps that help us communicate are seen as the product. However, people are the real product. Each day, your persona is sold to possible millions of companies who use the data to sell to you. However, users do not benefit from any of this data. The app creators retain all benefits. Besides that, you are never informed that your data has been taken.
Your Data Matters
However, your personal data is more important than physical data. On the internet, you can be yourself, which means it is easier for companies to target you with the right products. However, you have no rights to your data. The ConsenSys project hopes to change all that. Instead of power being in the hands of internet apps, it will be placed back in the hands of data generators.
