Gitshares: Gitchain based on Bitshares
« on: May 26, 2014, 09:31:54 AM »

There is an interesting project proposed on kickstarter called Gitchain
"Decentralized, peer-to-peer Git repositories aka "Github meets Bitcoin""

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/612530753/gitchain

It would be great if this project was implemented based on Bitshares toolkit.

A BLOCKCHAIN FOR CATS??

Git is already decentralized, the only thing this does is *force* everyone to replicate it rather than have people choose which branch they want...
Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

Git is, but github is not.   This is more like a way of decentralizing github. 

The problem I see is that there is no global resource that is being reallocated by a transaction ledger.  Git is already a blockchain if you think about the fact that every commit is a hash and references the prior commit by hash.

I've suggested this before as well. It is a great idea. To me a DAC is not fully decentralized if running it requires use of: government controlled domain name, public server that hosts necessary files.

A fully decentralized platform would provide it's own decentralized DNS and hosting. We have bitshares DNS in the works. We also need MaidSafe equivalent.
