Right from when it was launched in 1998, Google has become an integral part of our life. It has established itself so firmly as the de facto search engine that people refer to searching anything online as “Googling”. Whenever we are not sure about something we just say “Google it”. It is now hard to imagine a life without google and for the brief rare instances when google server goes down it creates an atmosphere of utter panic. Majority of jobs are heavily dependent on google, whether for searching data, finding images or in some cases Googling about how are you supposed to do the job at hand. It has pervaded even our personal lives when we are frequently googling “best gift to please an angry girlfriend”.
Google has made such a strong grip on the search engine market that it virtually has no competition. It destroyed Yahoo very early on. Bing was a disaster from the start. Baidu is popular only in China. The dangerous part is that once you have no threat or competition it gives you so much power that you are bound to misuse it.
Something similar is happening to Google over the years. There have been numerous instances of google misusing personal data. Google has been completely careless with personal data of users as it knows peole have no other option no matter what it does. With the stringent GPDR laws introduced by Europe, France recently filed a 50 million euro fine on Google for malpractices linked to user data.

Google has become a necessary evil in our lives. Something which we know is bad but we have no choice so we keep using it.
Until recently I also felt resigned to this fate till I heard about the project PRESEARCH.
Presearch is a next generation decentralized search engine which rewards users with it’s native Presearch tokens. Their idea is to use a blockchain based index which will be curated by the user community to decide which search result is more relevant from users perspective. You can refer their whitepaper to get more details here - https://www.presearch.io/uploads/WhitePaper.pdf
Just like the movie Matrix I will now offer you two options- Blue Pill or Red Pill.
- BLUE PILL – Hold on to the Old Ways
Take this pill and continue using Google and ignoring what potential Presearch has to open. Remain ignorant to the benefits that blockchain has to offer. Give Google the complete authority to misuse your personal data and pray that you don’t fall victim to identity theft.
- RED PILL – Embrace the Future
This pill is for the adventurous who have the courage to leap towards the future. You are no longer willing to compromise on personal data safety. If you are still wondering “Well, what’s in it for me?”, then let me clarify more about what incredible a deal this is. If you use Presearch to search for the info you are looking for you will earn 8 PRE tokens everyday. I currently use it for all my daily crypto based searches- whether it’s checking the bitcoin price movement or the other altcoins I am interested in. I have made it a regular practice to use it atleast 30 mins everyday and secure my daily limit of 8 PRE tokens. This small change leads to 2920 tokens every year. It is currently set at $0.04 but I am sure during the next bull run it will go well beyond it all time high of $1 and in the coming years it will climb even higher as it gains more popularity among the crypto community. Imagine getting $3,000 to $4,000 a year just for searching the crypto news everyday for 30 mins which I am sure you anyways do through google currently.
If you think you are ready for the Red Pill and want to try Presearch then feel free to use this referral link to get a bonus 25 tokens when you start - https://presearch.org/signup?rid=1557018
