Alrighty. Here’s the jist.
I had this idea for a forum I wanted to start and was browsing around for platforms. I was thinking maybe Discord, slack could work, DNN or ASP.NET, and then it hit me – all these options either suck, are way too bloated, or just don’t quite live up to their full potential (from a CS POV when looking at this from a global and future proof way).
I’ve been looking into IPFS for a while now and trying to think of a project that could benefit from a distributed system (I have tons of ideas), so it should be of no surprise that I connected these two dots.
What if we were to create a fully distributed community on top of IPFS. I call it a “community” because, if implemented properly, this could be a suitable replacement for chatrooms, forums, IM platforms, even blogs.
I’ve got dozens of ideas but very little clue how to implement this with IPFS. I’d love suggestions or even direct help. I’m an experienced software engineer and can work with JS or even GO with a little brushing up
What do you think?
