RChain (RHOC) News
Dear RChain Members and Community,
The last year and a half have been a whirlwind. The promise of a scalable, concurrent, economically secured blockchain is as potent today as it ever has been. The technology RChain is building could someday underpin the workings of society. In the effort to bring this dream to reality, I have learned a great deal and I’m thankful to have been a part of it.
However, it is now time for me to move on to other endeavors and pass the torch. I am resigning from my position as a board member as well as a staff employee of the RChain Cooperative; my last day is February 28.
Though the Cooperative has been under great strain over the last several months, the idea of using a cooperative for blockchain governance is still sound. I have full confidence that if the board of directors, leadership, and the membership can align and work together, then RChain Cooperative has a bright future.
The Rchain team seems to be one of the fastest-paced communities I've seen in awhile, the amount of open-source projects here will surely shape entire industries. Tremendous effort will be recognized in your guys' work on CBC Casper all the way to Cryptofex.
However there does seem to be a crater where massive potential is overlooked.... which brings me to my niche discovery/idea. Has Greg, Vlad or Mike looked into running reflective nodes for cross-chain clients? These "Reflective Nodes" would operates as mining participants with their own inherent VM's running P.O.W. code on their own system. The VM structure could even be modified to outperform ASICs. I think there is a clear area of mass potential here and it is essential the architects behind this get it right (as well as their intention). I know Parity has already begun to make way on this concept with their parity bitcoin client as a forefront. Yet, I think Rholang can offer some heavy advantages over Parity's substrate rust implementation.
The only really competitor is Dominic William's team over at Dfininty. I know the idea of tokenizing reflective nodes was a foundational concept for Dfinity as a whole. I would love to hear from the Rchain - core on their thoughts for this design
