Long time no blog! As I stated in Slack, I had to attend a training exercise in Texas for about 3 weeks. While I was not able to use the commercial internet for most of the time, I still made headway with Darcrus, Jupiter, and Sigwo Technologies. I’ve been testing on NXT’s testnet for 2 months, validating my design of decentrally storing and encrypting syslog/authorization messages from my Linux servers. In my testing, I found increased fees were needed to be paid due to the complex nature and size of my messages. After consulting with the NXT Core Devs, Sigwo Technologies will be securing it’s own blockchain for building the future platform. Jupiter is the name of the base platform, and Jupiter will have plugins built for anyone or business that needs to store data for any reason. Governments, housing data, customer data, schools, medical, and almost anything can be linked and stored for provenance, accountability, and recoverability with each save.New logo for Jupiter
The reason behind creating Jupiter is simple…Using any other blockchain would not be economically feasible. One example of my encrypted syslog application would create 29 million messages daily. In NXT terms and today’s prices, that would cost this particular business $1,238,300.00 per day to store messages, not to mention needing to use 174,000,000 NXT each day. This demand would spike the NXT price, increasing the ~$1.2M per day to even more extraordinary costs. This is just one example application.
Jupiter’s base is open source, and will be stored on Github upon completion. Jelurida is the company building Jupiter and have a proposed delivery date of March 10th, 2017. In this time I will be starting plugins (dappsheets) to showcase the flexibility of Jupiter while I wait. I still test on the NXT testnet for now.
Jupiter will have non-tradable tokens that are included in software packages to create transactions and store the data on the blockchai...
