Hello Everyone,

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.
