Inspiration

The great forums of the internet; Reddit, BitcoinTalk, Steemit.

What it does

Provides a non discriminant platform for global communication. Since it's based off the blockchain, communication is transparent, pseudo-anonymous and decentralized. This enables open conversation and freedom of expression for everybody. Further implementation of channels expands upon the concept, and allows users to start topic-focused conversations.

How we built it

Blockchain: Ethereum Backend: Solidity, Web3, TestRPC, Frontend: ReactJS + Redux

Challenges we ran into

  • A ton.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

- Even more

What we learned

We gained a more robust understanding of Solidity for blockchain and the web3 Javascript API.

What's next for ChatChain

  • Possibility to expand into a fully-featured newsroll with forums, similar to Reddit
  • Further support for anonymous protocols such as the "Dark Comms" supported by Whisper.
