Zennet project for distributed computing considering dpos

This developer is considering dpos and pow.  This is really cool.  Sounds like a long ways from a usable version.  Appears like an opportunity for the community to highlight the benefits of dpos to the developer and the shortcomings of pow.

Offer to make the developer into a Bitshares delegate. This would fund development of his project early on and encourage him to give back in the form of the social consensus.

If they are allowing anyone to submit computing jobs to the blockchain, then the data for those jobs should be encrypted first, which would presumably mean that the job processing would be done on encrypted data. Anyone who could create a computational blockchain that supports homomorphic encryption is onto a winner.

Is it absolutely essential that all data in a super computer has to be encrypted? A lot of the data could be public data as a way around it. Private data probably does have to be encrypted though.

This technology could be very useful. Bitshares could use supercomputer functionality and compute resources if it could be decentralized would be a breakthrough. I don't think it's going to be easy though.

Here is the main bitcointalk thread if someone is interested.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=736447.0

I'm pretty interested in projects like this one, and of course, if someone has an idea on how to do it using BTS please tell here. As I have been GPU mining for some good time and it's really time to see some P2P cloud computing project working.
