Unlike most services on the web today, the Onename webapp is not a walled garden. Instead, it is built on a completely decentralized system. Instead of issuing our own usernames in a closed namespace, the Onename webapp uses an open namespace on which anyone can register names. Instead of storing user profiles in a private database, the Onename webapp stores them in an open database. See http://blockstack.org for more details.
