how blockchain and cryptoeconomics could disrupt tech infrastructure. 1. Blockchains-as-a-Service 2. File storage 3. Compute power 4. Less obvious stuff Zooming out, longer term • How do today’s projects change the current web landscape, yes, but... • What new products and services will they let us build that we can’t yet imagine?
useful to tech architectures, often for auditing applications at enterprise scale. Hyperledger is an open source project from the Hyperledger Foundation (c/o Linux foundation). OST is a public blockchain toolkit for businesses. ECOM is a local ecommerce middleware project. AWS, Microsoft, IBM, Google and Oracle, SAP all have BaaS offers - also see BlockApps’ STRATO. BaaS Sony Education are using Hyperledger as a next-gen credentials platform
been a contentious topic for the web - from Usenet and Napster to BitTorrent and onto cloud storage and CDNs. Filecoin, Storj, IPFS are all different projects using decentralised storage for web object storage, incentivised using cryptocurrencies and tokens.
app platform Golem provides a marketplace for idle CPU power to provide on-demand computing at any scale - current uses include rendering and machine learning. Dfinity - an unstoppable, decentralised, global supercomputer - what could possibly go wrong. Compute
to future-proof systems by avoiding protocol lock-in P2PLIB - modular network stack to run network applications free from runtime and address services, independently of their location IPLD - a single namespace for all hash-inspired protocols (git, Bitcoin, etc) Presearch is a decentralized search engine, powered by the community Handshake - decentralised DNS Less obvious stuff
tokens (Rakuten already has) • Everything that can be Tokenized will be Tokenized • Shift towards purpose, authentic value creation, community curation and experience • Instantaneous migration between service providers and protocols • Businesses will expect near real-time, canonical data on which to base business decisions • The tech infrastructure of the web is about to get a whole bunch more complicated • The gap between engineers and consumers is going to grow even further - the killer blockchain app will be one that consumers don’t even know or care is blockchain Trends and predictions
