Many of us use search engines without giving much thought to our personal information being collected and sold by big tech companies. I suppose we have all simply become accustomed to a complete lack of privacy. However, decentralized search engines hold the promise of restoring privacy and even rewarding users for their searches.
What is Presearch?
Presearch is a decentralized, blockchain-based search engine that harnesses the power of the world’s leading search engines to provide the best search results without bias, censorship, or compromising your privacy. Users’ searches are also anonymized to keep their data private.
When you do a search, you are rewarded with Pre Tokens. You can sell the tokens, exchange them for other cryptocurrencies, or use them to vote on projects and other community decisions.
What Are Its benefits?
The biggest advantage is getting paid for searching and giving out your preferences and likes, which initially wasn’t the case with Google or Yahoo. The open and transparent ranking factors also enable users to access information that otherwise would have been censored or hidden by Google itself. The user has more say and can choose to upvote or downvote information through a common party.
How to Use It?
To start using PreSearch simply visit https://presearch.org/ and use it like any other search engine. To earn rewards, you need to create an account and sign-in. The only information required is an email address and a password.
Preseach also has a browser extension for both Chrome and Firefox, which makes PreSeach your default search engine. It also allows you to conveniently track your PreSearch earnings.
Presearch is a great alternative to Google, Bing, Yahoo, and even DuckDuckGo. Decentralization means you get better search results without compromising your privacy. In addition, you get rewarded in cryptocurrency for searching. It doesn’t get much better than that.
