EOS-Forum Looks to Rival Reddit as Decentralized Blockchain Platform
Reddit About to Get a Serious Competitor in the Form of the EOS-Forum
The blockchain technology can be used in a broad number of ways. It is a technology that can easily be used to store large volumes of data, although retrieving the data stored in it has of late proved a challenge for many. The EOS-platform aims to prove that this fete is not difficult to achieve as there are very many benefits that can be garnered from using the platform.
The Concept Behind the EOS-Forum
As opposed to what the name might imply, the EOS-Forum actually has nothing to do with the creation of a PHPBB2 board that may be devoted to the EOS bionetwork. Instead, this is a user interface that can be used to gain access to content that has been stockpiled in an EOS blockchain.
It is an approach that assists in turning this platform into a discussion board that is completely decentralized. This is because none of the data sets stored on it can be removed or altered in any way.
There are two very significant components that have been joined together in order to transform the forum into a game changer. To start with, it utilizes the EOS blockchain, and possess an immutable nature that makes it possible for it to hold all the information pertaining to the ecosystem.
Secondly, it makes use of an open source forum software application that can be run locally or globally. An accessible interface is required for one to run the application globally. One feature that easily stands out, and which many users are likely to enjoy is the fact that they can easily post on the forum without revealing their true identity.
It is a factor that makes it interesting and encourages more platform users to try and explore the anonymity feature. It is, however, important to note that not all users are interested in pursuing anonymity at the moment. But the fact that the community has more options that it can explore is indeed a good thing, especially considering the technical nature of the world that we are living in.
When you look at the platform from a convenience point of view, you will note that users are not required to come up with unique subsections. It is possible to access the forum immediately. In addition, any posts a user makes will be available for access immediately. This goes to show that there is no friction being associated with the concept.
Since being launched, the platform has been attracting a lot of attention from various quarters. The reason for this could be its because it highly resembles the Reddit platform. The two platforms have very many similar features.
What Should You Expect Next?
As is to be expected from this type of platform, there is still a lot that needs to be done. Currently, the platform appears as though it is still in its experimental stages, but with the assistance of EOS Canada, it is likely that more enhancements will be added to it.
