Greg spoke about a three pronged proposal to improve the Co-op’s communications infrastructure:

Time 24:42 (Link to Video)

  1. Decentralize website content via a badging system:
    Dappy (https://dappy.tech/) is a decentralized distribution network that allows anyone to host files and web applications on the RChain blockchain. We will host Co-op “badged” content on our websites so that clicking on a Co-op badge will launch Dappy and display the same content on-chain. Members are encouraged to display “Co-op Badged” content on their own websites, as well as create their own badged content, beginning with “Bio Pages.”
  2. Set up a system for members to register a REV address with the Cooperative. This address could be used for member coordination functions such as voting. Greg suggested funding each member wallet with 100 REV.
  3. Demonstrate blockchain enabled chat by connecting the RCat (RChain Assets Tracker) to the popular Zulip open source Chat platform.
