The recent advent of smart contract blockchain networks like NEO and Ethereum opens a huge opportunity for a vast new array of innovative decentralized services and ap- plications (dApps). The dominant paradigm of the ’Cloud’ (cloud computing, storage, services etc.) can now be seriously challenged – decentralized systems are becoming in- creasingly competitive by giving two main advantages: ability to aggregate an immense set of disparate small economic resources (thus gaining economies of scale), and the in- creased transparency and freedom from not being dependent on a trusted third party (i.e. Amazon’s AWS or Microsoft’s Azure).
This new computational and economic environment is however still in its infancy, and lacks a great many of the basic building blocks and infrastructure required for the full development and realization of decentralized applications, systems and services. One of the most needed components, is a service for customizable communication and data sharing between dApps.
To tackle these issues, we present Phantasma – a new generation of decentralized content sharing platform.
