If you are interested in what distributed database technology can do for you, please read our white paper PDF.
Blockchain is money. Take the money out of your blockchain use case and you can throw away the blockchain bit too. Post crypto-currency uses of it are bogus, they can all be replaced with Verisign and resilience. I know that’s a bit out there, but show me a working counter example.
If Verisign were ever to go under we’d all be in very serious trouble. Near asteroid proof resilience is available to all. You can guess that I am not a massive fan of cryptocurrencies either, but that’s another issue. This work is about the engineering required for sharing data.
Here’s a short power point to explain the principle
Or you could sit for half an hour and watch a demo with (almost) everything core that we need working. There’s a lot of er, and um but you wont have to read at least. If you are in a hurry skip to about 17 and half mins or even 25 if you are very very busy.
It’s a mind numbingly simple proposal. Rock solid P2P record sharing (many to many across the set of parties) and a structured record supporting a transparent (i.e. mind numbingly simple) rule system.
This document/record/contract complete with its own rules has an edit and a live state. Once live its just an application with rules as to who fills in and sees what, and simple spreadsheet style referencing and equalitys.
It’s shockingly simple in principle. It needs to be so, it needs to be totally obvious. Once you have this and a client to edit it with, your business analysts can construct and edit inter-corporate applications without even talking to a computer programmer.
There are also two further essays Tech and 3TC above. They are superseded by the white paper, which itself is a year old now.
Here are some more rants.
