Your Server, On The Blockchain

Abstract. A peer-to-peer file sharing network would circumvent the conventional problems of internet censorship and the inefficient deployment of content delivery systems (CDN) found on the world wide web (WWW) of today. With the added incentive of an underlying cryptocurrency, whose blockspace commands a market price, users of the network would be encouraged to only share information that is in the public interest. The competition for blockspace on a network where informational assets could be accessed for a fee could provide a market mechanism to attract miners, and subsequently, computational hashing power. Only those with the correct private key could add files to a server which is hosted on the blockchain and only those with the correct public key could download these files to their local client – whether that be a web browser or otherwise. The network itself would serve essentially only one function: to host a distributed platform which performs PUSH/PULL commands in the distribution and storage of computer files. With any attempt to nullify censorship there also comes the potential problem of making content available which violates the good taste of contemporary conventions and ethical standards, and subsequently, the market mechanism of the network could serve as a method to discourage low-quality content.


How To Fork Bitcoin

Forking bitcoin is one of the best methods of improving the technology of the blockchain and can be immensely profitable when done correctly.

Already, a number of bitcoin software forks exist in circulation today. In a similar manner as how the Linux operating system has undergone many forks of its original source code to produce newly improved, and specialized versions of the software.

Hard forking bitcoin involves introducing new technical parameters at a specific block within the network and running a full node to propagate blocks to this new transaction chain. Because a newly forked chain is navigating away from the main bitcoin blockchain, both the collective hashing power mining the newly forked chain and mining difficultly parameter will be magnitudes less.

These circumstances combine to create a development environment that is very friendly to experimentation and tweaking the existing technical components.

Introducing The Bitcoin Chip From Diginomics Corporation

The Bitcoin Chip™


Mobile Bitcoin Wallet On A SIM Card

The Bitcoin Chip is a full blockchain node running on a mobile SIM card which allows the user to store, receive, and authorize bitcoin payments.

The private key of the user is stored on this mobile storage device while allowing secure network connectivity through IPv6 communication protocol enabled by a hard fork of the original bitcoin ledger. This new, forked chain allows the user to not only communicate through a secure IPv6 protocol (not connected to the www “World Wide Web”) but acts through a virtual private network.

Several of the product benefits of The Bitcoin Chip include:

  • Secure identity authorization.
  • Broadcast transactions and receive payment from a mobile device.
  • Store information on the public blockchain which can only be decrypted by your private key.

The Bitcoin Chip comes in the form of a hardware wallet SIM Card which can easily be fitted to any modern smartphone. SMS-based text messaging and VoIP can be accessed on-chain by applications built ontop of the protocol layer.
