This is a post about a possible future direction for ZapRead.
I have been working on developing a blockchain which would contain the posts, accounts, and votes from ZapRead.com. Actions would still happen with lightning, but the content of ZapRead would be stored on a distributed blockchain.
The current database growth 200 users, about 10 MB per week. Very slow.
I am playing with multichain (which is a fork of bitcoin core) to implement this. You would be able to save data on-chain and off-chain to track posts/comments, and more. It's quite flexible and could be a good platform to migrate the zapread database onto. It would mean also that the website content itself could be distributed and backed-up on multiple nodes.
Let me know what you think of this idea in the comments.
