Americans are concerned about their privacy. Data about our online activities can be tracked by companies, the government, and others. In fact, according to Pew Research, 60% of U.S. adults believe it is impossible to avoid being tracked by the government or corporations as they go about their daily lives.

“A majority of Americans believe their online and offline activities are being tracked and monitored by companies and the government with some regularity.”


In the world we live in today, privacy is an illusion. Dark returns privacy back to the individual by allowing them to use the internet anonymously. Using web 3.0 technology, the company is building an end-to-end private, secure internet platform, using blockchain-based IP service addresses, replacing the need for open records DNS systems.

Go dark with Dark and maintain your privacy.

“Some 81% of the public say that the potential risks they face because of data collection by companies outweigh the benefits.”

market opportunity 

Web 3.0 is the third generation internet, which enables users to gain control of their own data. With more than $80 billion in funding from venture funds, private equity, and hedge funds, the web 3.0 ecosystem has grown to include thousands of companies (Bain).

According to Emergen Research, the web 3.0 market reached $3.2 billion in 2021. The market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of almost 44% through 2030, reaching a total size of more than $81 billion.

Factors driving this growth include:

  • Increasing demand for better user experience
  • Connectivity advancements
  • Growing preference for NFTs, digital collectibles and currencies

business model

The company plans to implement a subscription model:

  • End users pay monthly subscription fee to protect their privacy
  • Companies that want to place their products or services into our ecosystem pay a development fee plus an annual subscription fee

The initial Dark product is a plugin, easily installed into the Chrome browser. This simple plugin will service as the gateway to Dark and its ecosystem. Once using the Dark Plugin in your chrome browser, a dark button option appears on your browser. Once pressed, the browser will then resolve to any website url using its location on a dark proprietary blockchain-based system rather than on the conventional internet. This allows users, Dark, and content providers privacy, security, and anonymity leveraging the inherent protections and distributed nature of the blockchain.
