Hey guys,

Couple links first:
Opensim: http://opensimulator.org/wiki/Main_Page
Hypergrid: http://opensimulator.org/wiki/Hypergrid
Opensim wiki on money implementations (poor implementations): http://opensimulator.org/wiki/Money

Basicly, think of opensim as an opensource virtual reality that's very similar to second life.
Hypergrid is an extension to opensim that links opensim servers together to create a mesh of vr worlds.

One massive thing that Opensim is missing is currency - there are centralized tokens that people are issuing, but that's a terrible solution! What if DPOS was implemented where a delegate has to host part of an opensim on our own hypergrid, and we track all currency and inventory on the blockchain?

Delegates would not only get fees on transactions, but users would also be buying land on their servers to create their own virtual reality areas. This would require delegates to have powerful servers, but it could be very profitable for the delegates to do so.

One thing that would be very difficult however is policing - who are admins? how does reporting work? etc.. tricky. Looks like hypersim might give such powers of policing to hypersim owners (in this case the delegates).

Thoughts? :)

This is a great idea.
