How to get rid of the blockchain for your next big project
A few years ago, the concept of blockchain technology was largely unknown to the wider world.
Its popularity in the tech industry was a bit understated due to the lack of a lot of public usage cases.
However, its potential has been realised, and the technology is starting to be used in a lot more projects.
For instance, the project LazyDuo has used it in order to provide a decentralized autonomous city data service in the future.
However it was the project that brought about the blockchain and its potential in a way that it did not originally intend, said Kostas Panagiotakos, the founder and CEO of Lazy Duo.
“The blockchain and the underlying concept behind it was very new, it was not used at all by any of the big companies, but we were really lucky to have such a good co-founder and co-owner,” Panagiatakos said.
“The community, the people around us, and what we did was really a big success for us.”
Lazy Duo was originally created to help with the city data collection and storage problem.
However in recent years, its focus has shifted towards other aspects of the project, which Panagios describes as a combination of “technical and social”.
The project aims to provide an “internet of data” that will be hosted on the blockchain, and will provide users with access to data on various topics.
The idea is that users will be able to access data via the blockchain whenever they want.
“It’s not a database of everything you know, but rather the data of the world you have access to,” he explained.
“We have to be very careful with the blockchain.”
According to Panagias, the biggest difference with Lazy Duos blockchain is that the data will be stored on the public blockchain and not stored in the database.
This means that users can view the data and share it with other people.
“If we have a project where people can access data, then we need to make sure that the project is safe, because if someone wants to steal data, it can be a lot harder to do that,” Panagiiotakis said.
In order to make LazyDuos project work, Panagius had to make some changes to the project’s codebase.
“In general, the codebase for a blockchain project is a mess,” he said.
“I wanted to create something that was completely transparent, with good quality code, that’s very easy to read, that can run on any computer, and that can be deployed on any server,” he added.
The project is currently being built by a group of people, and Panagianis plans to use this team to run a full node version of the platform.
The blockchain will be a decentralized resource that anyone can access.
“For example, if you wanted to make a movie, you would be able, for example, to make your movie on the Blockchain, and it would be publicly available on the Internet,” Panagos said.
The team plans to release an open source version of Lrazy Duo to the public by the end of June.
“I’m looking forward to it,” Panagsos said, adding that he would like to release the project for free.
