The Internet is an amazing invention that has revolutionized our lives .For being able to communicate with People over the world and access an endless amount of information.

However, with all of these benefits come a few drawbacks. One such drawback is that of censorship


In today's world web 2 dominated the entire market.

Today, many businesses such as Google, Facebook, YouTube, and more have the right to remove the content if it does not adhere to their rules.


 As a result, many people have no recourse if they find their content has been taken down. This can lead to feelings of helplessness and frustration, especially if the content was important to the individual or group.



That is why me and my team have have to develop the pink Paper. This is a platform designed to promote freedom of speech and no matter what the content is .

With the Pink Paper users are able to Publish their content without fear of censorship.


The Pink paper is a step in the right direction towards creating a censorship-free internet.

We also hope that more people will join us in our mission to protect freedom of Speech and make sure that everyone’s voice is heard.
