Participants and Network Users - usually part time online, changing location / IP appdress, one directional communication
Bridges/Nodes - usually non-stop online, fixed location / IP appdress, two directional communication
Decentralized web has 2 types of participants:
Every user can have and run their own Bridge/Node.
The way of access of Decentralized web:
User's program run on - their own laptops, and/or Android phone/tablet device
Bridge's/Node's program run on - Raspberry Pi device, and/or Android phone/tablet device
Direction of communication:
Usually Users have one directional communication and can not achieve communication with one another.
Bridges/Nodes have two directional communication and help Users to communicate by forwarding data.
Bridges/Nodes based on Raspberry Pi can act as Internet Computer - load and perform local or distributed computing tasks.
Bridges/Nodes together with Users form a large Decentralized web network.
