Storing compressed text in Ethereum transaction logs

Submitted by jbrown on Thu, 10/29/2015 - 08:31

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.

As the Ethereum eco-system is still very immature it can sometimes be very frustrating to develop on this platform. Gradually more tools are being developed that make it much easier, such as Browser Solidity.

Maker have released a new tool called Dapple. It's purpose is to provide a lot of scaffolding around dapp development. It comprises: package management, Solidity preprocessor (cog), Solidity testing, deployment and chain contexts.

Glofile (Global profile) is essentially a clone of Gravatar for Ethereum.

Users of Ethereum will be accessing many different dapps with the same account. It makes sense that they should be able to associate some basic public information with their account that can then be utilized by any dapp.
