Decentralization is the distribution of functions, value or in this case, data. BlockSense makes use of the blockchain protocol to encode data onto its network. The benefits of decentralized data include:
Efficient data processing: Each connected node contributes to processing of data
Data integrity: As transactions are sent and confirmed by peers, data is stored within the distributed database. Even if a system on the network fails, your data is immutable.
Security: Maintained by all connected peers by making use of the proof of stake method
