Federated Ethereum Blockchains

Submitted by jbrown on Mon, 07/25/2016 - 07:32

In the aftermath of the DAO fork it occurred to me that there might be a better way for large Ethereum projects to exist on the Blockchain.

The idea is this: large projects should not use the main Ethereum or Ethereum Classic chains. Instead they should create their own independent blockchain specifically for their project. Smaller Ethereum projects could decide which of the Ethereum blockchains is the most appropriate to use. Which smart contracts do they need to integrate with most?

Storing compressed text in Ethereum transaction logs

There are a lot of good reasons to store blobs of text in Ethereum. For example, a decentralized Reddit clone could store all the messages in the blockchain. These messages would be uncensorable and archived for eternity. In theory IPFS could be used, but it does not guarantee the availability of the messages unless someone is actively storing them.
