Economies of Scale
Making Private Cyberspace affordable and attractive to all 8 billion on earth requires a PARADIGM SHIFT in economies of scale:
- from achieving economies of scale through Centralisation (cloud platforms growing as many users as possible). It is about a few planning what might be efficient FOR OTHERS in the future.
- into achieving economies of scale through Collaboration (private cyberspaces working together as much as possible). It is about many deciding what is efficient FOR THEMSELVES in real-time.
Private Cyberspace removes the COST barrier to RELIABLE infrastructure by leveraging community idle capacities (e.g. unused disks, bored retirees), reusing broken devices (e.g. laptops with faulty screens & keyboards) and taking over data income from the Cloud.
- Cloud Platform lowers cost by SHARING platform resources between many platform users.
- Private Cyberspace lowers cost by AGGREGATING the resources of many cyberspace owners.
Currently most people can only collaborate via cloud platforms, with private cyberspace everyone can collaborate directly and benefit from network effects that were only available cloud platforms before.
Private Cyberspace removes the COST barrier by leveraging community idle capacities (e.g. unused disks, bored retirees), reusing broken devices (e.g. laptops with faulty screens & keyboards) and taking over data income from the Cloud.
Private Cyberspace removes the COST barrier to private cyberspace ownership by aggregating surplus resources from others and taking over data income from the Cloud. Everyone now have RELIABLE infrastructure to operate at any scale, no matter their wealth.
Once you have collected some data into your own private cyberspace, you can OPTIONALLY work other cyberspaces in a safe and synergistic manner to solve the most difficult problems facing humankind.
For example, currently you can earn bronze y20coins anonymously (e.g. for helping to locate COVID virus down to meters and cut its legs off within minutes by notifying others).
From the wifi signals on the street to the barcodes on a bottle of milk, you can donate or sell the the data you have collected in your Private Cyberspace immediately on collection or on a later date.
Selling DATA in your Private Cyberspace redirects the funds originally going to the Cloud Platforms to you, however Private Cyberspace also let you sell INSIGHTS by processing your data yourself and then selling the resulting insight, which is substantially safer than exposing your data to others.
You can also use your Private Cyberspace to receive data anonymously, from a pothole on the road in front to an active shooter in the building, from an ambulance coming up behind you to proving you are somewhere else at a certain time in courts ... the possibilities are endless.
Each person can have one or more Private Cyberspaces and each Private Cyberspace can operate under one or more aliases.
Unlike Cloud Platforms which attempt to identify you and target you even across applications and sites, Private Cyberspace encourages you to have different identities for different purposes. Fine grain control allows you to tune each alias for different groups of people and different types of applications.
PRIVATE alias is used to collect raw data privately on your phone and sharing them at your own time and through your own means, there is no interaction with any exchange. In fact, since the Console will not "phone home" to application providers under GUEST alias, you will need to check for new software updates manually, it will not check itself. Basically you are using the Console to built your information assets "off the grid".
GUEST aliases are used for interacting anonymously with exchanges. You will start to see more information (like the name of the local government area you are currently in) and be able to.
Consumer enhanced Productivity adds ability for each consumer to on top of traditional Producer driven Productivity e.g. get rewarded for useful comments you made on public forums, earn from idle bandwidth and unused disk spaces while you sleep.

A fundamental problem with Cloud security that is impossible to fix is the lack of physical security
Protection get A LOT easier if you don't have to protect your data physically - from the owner of the computer it is on or from the owner of the room it is in - from the Cloud Platforms.
fact that you are putting your data on their computers without encryption
Cybercrimes are causing substantial damages to many individuals and organisations EVERYDAY.
Private Cyberspace mitigates System and Human Vulnerabilities by enabling citizens to block transactions INDEPENDENTLY with their own Private Cyberspaces.
It brings together the compute and data from millions of citizen devices to verify transactions even before illegitimate transactions reach affected systems.
Fix Hardware Secured VM
Cloud Platforms have started to introduce Virtual Machines (VMs) secured by hardware, giving the impression that your data is secure with them.
Google promotes its Confidential Computing services confidently but the AMD SEV technology it is based on has been shown to be insecure:
Microsoft's Confidential Computing based on Intel SGX does not flair much better:
Despite the impressive sounding concept of using hardware for protection, dynamic and complex systems are always going to have weaknesses, Private Cyberspace complements Hardware Secured VMs with an independent Citizen driven Security layer.
