To keep this post as short as possible, I’m going to make the following two assumptions:
#1: you are already well aware of what problems are inherent in blockchain technology
#2: you’re about to go to the maidsafe website, download the primer PDF file, and become aware
I’m not a programmer or a math wizard so please forgive me if the way I’m about to describe this isn’t “syntax compliant” or “mathematically accurate”. I’m a very concept-oriented person so please view this as a rough draft of an idea, not an API
I was thinking that to resolve the issues with blockchain technology, why not use a variation of PARSEC itself to do this? I refer to this variant as “CHAINMESH” and you might want to engage your imagination and get visual with that label.
Imagine taking a blockchain such as Steemit, Bitcoin or whatever (it doesn’t matter which blockchain we use for this hypothetical example) and resolve the problem by shattering the blockchain into mini-blockchains that are limited and finite. Then you use PARSEC to negotiate all of those pieces in the same way that it already shatters a file and manages those chunks? This way, instead of adding to a blockchain that becomes too large, too slow, too bulky, and prone to all of the errors described about it in the SafeNetwork Primer PDF – micro-blockchains that NEVER exceed a certain size are managed together in a CHAINMESH capable of expanding in the same way as SafeNet itself.
I know what some of you might be tempted to think:
"Now wait a second Dave, are you suggesting that SafeNet become blockchain based?
NO. I’d NEVER suggest that.
What I am suggesting however is a means for existing blockchain technology to be able to exist on top of and inside of SafeNet. This would give blockchain enthusiasts a REASON and INCENTIVE to begin using SafeNet. It would also help to make CryptoCurrency more stable, the more those currencies started to migrate over to using SafeNet technologies.
So, this is merely a transitional phase to provide people incentive to shift over from what has been, into what is better.
Allowing them a panama canal of sort, so they can gracefully move through those proverbial locks with ease and flow – instead of expecting them to strap on a jet pack and jump over the canal from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Metaphorically speaking. Like I said, I’m concept-oriented.
So maybe I just came up with a great idea, and perhaps I am unknowingly talking straight out of my butt. You be the judge.
I can’t tell you HOW to code such a system, I am only intending to inspire an idea that such a system might be possible, maybe. And that if so, it can act as a mechanism to allow people more ease and flow for migrating TO SafeNet.
