What is ArGo?

The Internet seems decentralized on the surface, but much of it is controlled and censored by governments and select corporates.

But DeFi’s continued growth signals that centralized proprietary services can soon be replaced by decentralized, peer-to-peer markets.

ArGo believes the Internet should follow suit with decentralized web hosting.

ArGo is an easy to use decentralized web app deployment and hosting platform that is built on blockchain technology known as the Arweave Permaweb. Arweave Permaweb is a decentralized cloud platform that supports developers with multiple tools and aligns with the internet’s vision of true permanence and censorship resistance.

Users who deploy apps or websites on ArGo are charged just once, and don’t incur recurring server hosting, security, and database costs. ArGo’s use of miner hosting space also allows users to store their business or ideas on the internet permanently.

All in all, ArGo’s decentralized hosting provides users with more security, privacy, and reliability — all at a lower cost.

How It Works

ArGo is built on Arweave Protocol, which keeps a sustainable and permanent ledger of all knowledge and history on it. All content stored on Arweave is immutable and tamper proof. Arweave is immutable because it timestamps everything, and is accurate down to the minute thanks to ArGo’s newly iterated blockweave data structure. The inclusion of transaction data inside block hashes and recall blocks ensures data remains unalterable during storage or retrieval, and is available within the network at any time.

ArGo Tokenomics

The native token of the ArGo Platform, $ArGo, is designed to play a major role in the functioning of the ecosystem. $ArGo’s goal is to be used as a medium of exchange between participants on ArGo. $ArGo may be spent to purchase any of the ArGo’s services/products or redeemed to get discounts on the platform. Users can also ‘stake’ $ArGo and receive special privileges and rights. For example exclusive access to events and early notification of updates/promotions. $ArGo is also a governance token.

$ArGo has a maximum supply of 100M which is utilized for ecosystem growth. $ArGo will reach its maximum cap 60 months after all tokens are released. ArGo has locked 34% of $ArGo for the community DAO as a treasury. These $ArGos are only released when needed for marketing, grants, and more.
