The centralization of resources and power in the past led to an effectiveness, but today in the world the situation is changed. Centralization leads to irrational use of resources, the concentration of them in one place, and therefore accelerates their exhaustion.
In relation to Internet technologies you can use many striking examples, in which somebody build and expand the network, spending billions of dollars and megawatts of electricity and a long stretch of fiber-optic communication lines. As a rule, large amounts of data are now stored and processed in many thousands of kilometers from the place where they are used. All current existing IoT platforms are centralized and work with a similar scenario. Thus, if a Korean farmer choose the platform of IoT of the American manufacturer, the data from IoT sensors from the fields of the farmer are likely to be stored in the United States. Apparently people have built fiber-optic lines along the bottom of the oceans, spending billions of dollars. This leads to huge costs.
