Decentralization refers to the distribution of authority, functions, or resources away from a central location or governing body, facilitating a more democratic and participatory system. In contrast to centralized systems, where control is concentrated in a single entity or a small group of entities, decentralized systems empower individuals or smaller units to make decisions, perform tasks, or manage resources. This concept has gained significant traction in various sectors, including technology, governance, and economics. In the tech realm, decentralization is epitomized by technologies like blockchain, which allows for secure and transparent peer-to-peer transactions without the need for intermediaries like banks. Similarly, in governance, decentralization often involves devolving powers to local or regional authorities to enable more responsive and context-specific decision-making. The core idea is that decentralization can lead to systems that are more robust, transparent, and less susceptible to single points of failure or control.
