The online search engine is wanting to end up being a competitor to Google.
Decentralized online search engine Presearch, a prospective option to Google, is leaving the screening stage, enabling it to serve more search inquiries around the world.
Presearch formally transitioned from its Testnet to a Mainnet today. This suggests all search traffic through the service now runs over Presearch’s decentralized network of volunteer-run nodes.
“The decentralized network will now process over 5 million daily private searches with the ability to scale to hundreds of millions,” Presearch stated in the statement(Opens in a brand-new window). The Canadian business has actually likewise embraced a brand-new domain for the online search engine at Presearch.com(Opens in a brand-new window) when prior to it was utilizing Presearch.org as its primary landing page.

To pull this off, the online search engine is utilizing volunteer-run computer systems, called “nodes,” to aggregate the search engine result for each inquiry.

In a post(Opens in a brand-new window), Presearch stated the shift to the Mainnet assures to make the online search engine run more efficiently by tapping more computing power from its volunteer nodes. “We now have the ability for node operators to contribute computing resources, be rewarded for their contributions, and have the network automatically distribute those resources to the locations and tasks that require processing,” the business stated.
“The second reason Mainnet is a breakthrough is that due to geographic distribution, the speed of running searches for global users will improve due to closer proximity between searchers and the computing resources they will access,” it included.
Presearch introduced on its Testnet in October 2020, and ever since the online search engine has actually drawn in 3.8 million signed up users. It presently has more than 64,000 volunteer nodes, which are slowly transitioning from the Testnet to the Mainnet.
