Feels like more of a focus on building a credible cryptocurrency than anything else. I’d gladly donate compute time to a truly decentralized search platform that didn’t include crypto and an ad network.
Results are sourced from Bing; I looked at this when writing the article on search engines linked here a few hours ago.
I posted it because it uses a distributed system to get the results and keep the users anonymous. It’s something that searx failed.
Results are, according to my use for two days, better than DDG. But the interface could be improved and that ads in the first link is clearly a bummer.
