HOW CARTESI IS SHAPING THE FUTURE OF DE-CENTRALIZED APPLICATIONS (D-APPS) AND LINUX; PROBLEMS CONFRONTING THE THE FUTURE OF D-APPS.
The mission and target of Cartesi is to help D-apps developers ensuring more effective features, towards building more appealing, more acceptable products to clients. That is, developers will have a better opportunity of boosting their level of productivity with the help of Cartesi's, such that their creativity will be unleashed.
This is as a result of the fact that Cartesi will be addressing major challenges and weaknesses of the traditional block-chain that have been limiting D-apps development. .
First, let us look at the problems confronting the future of D-apps.
PROBLEMS CONFRONTING THE FUTURE OF D-APPS
When we say the future of D-apps being confronted by some problems and limitations, we are actually talking in terms of D-apps development and opportunities for constant improvement (at various times in the future). What's the essence of creating a system or tool (D-apps) that may be difficult to develop at various times in future? That wouldn't be a good idea. As a result of using only the traditional block-chain to power De-centralized Applications, we are faced with the following challenges that we perceive could affect the future of development of D-apps:
* Low scalability of Traditional Block-chain
* No solid environment for development of D-apps
Low Scalability is a common problem of the traditional block-chain, even though it is secure and fast to a great extent. Scalability today is a very important factor in the digital sphere, without which there will be a lot of limitations. Hence, we need a better system that will tackle this problem. That's where Cartesi comes in for D-APPS - to shape the future.
NO SOLID ENVIRONMENT
We need to establish a reliable, accommodative, and solid environment that will easily allow for the development of D-apps in the future. Cartesi will help to achieve this by combining block-chain with off-chain components and the Linux OS.
Cartesi in this project is actually creating and establishing a robust connection between block-chain and Linux OS environment. This link will bring about a huge amount of processing power, scalability, and cutting-edge programmability for D-apps. The Linux user-friendly and high-tech operating system environment and features, incorporated with block-chain, will help D-apps to be:
2. More adoptable, widely accepted.
3. Completely de-centralized
4. Portable and
5. Private and Secure
HOW CARTESI IS SHAPING D-APPS' DEVELOPMENT FUTURE
Cartesi provides developers with the empowerment they need to select the best operation (run) environment in which to launch and manage (improve) every part of their D-apps. It solves the problems of block-chain that hinders it's expansive adoption and that threatens the future for the development of D-apps.
In order to achieve its mission of helping developers in building better D-apps and of ensuring a better future for D-apps improvement, Cartesi is consciously ensuring the following key features and benefits:
- Genuine OS-Intensive Computation (Linux OS)
- Easy App Improvement & Probability
- Consensus is Guaranteed
GENUINE OS-INTENSIVE COMPUTATION (LINUX OS)
Cartesi, while tackling block-chain's lack of the needed robust environment for D-apps development, offers a Linux-based environment for them. This allows very complex computations to be run off-chain. I will expatriate on what that means: Cartesi is actually a layer-2 system for D-apps, so that, it comprises of 2 components, namely, Block-chain components and Off-chain components
The off-chain components operate inside of and by Cartesi Nodes. These nodes also provide what is known as Cartesi Reproducible Machines. The purpose of these machines is to facilitate the efficient running of expansive, complex computations that wouldn't run on the Block-chain components. These complex calculations are (necessarily) incorporated with smart-contracts in order to ensure guaranteed settling of conflicts (computational issues).
In essence, all these make the off-chain components capable of handling sophisticated computations that block-chain alone wouldn't be able to handle. Nonetheless, block-chain still offers and guarantees security in the overall platform and D-APPS. The Linux OS is the basic environment that allows the eco-system perform sophisticated computations.
EASY APP IMPROVEMENT & PORTABILITY
With Cartesi's features, D-apps developers can use simple, common and powerful software components that are compatible with Linux, in order to build their D-apps. Pure block-chain environments are limited and domain-specific. With Cartesi, developers become free from that constraint.
In fact, modern developers will be able to totally express themselves and their creativity in app building and updating.
Cartesi D-apps is portable within the most pertinent block-chains, so, developers would have nothing to worry about, concerning the durability or longevity of any of these block-chains.
TRANSPARENCY AND CONSENSUS GUARANTEED
With Cartesi, computations will be done with all transparency, de-centralization and Consensus. This means all parties that are involved in the app eco-system can have access to, and verify every computation. In order words, Cartesi automatically sets disputes.
Indeed, Cartesi is an interesting initiative and solution. The mission and target of Cartesi is to help D-apps developers ensuring more effective features, towards building more appealing, more acceptable products to clients. Cartesi aims to address block-chain's limiting factors with respect to D-apps development. It (Cartesi) a layer-2 system for D-apps, so that, it comprises of 2 components, namely, Block-chain components and Off-chain components. This makes it a hybrid platform.
In order to achieve it's aim, Cartesi ensures Genuine (Linux) OS-intensive computation; Easy App Development and Portability; as well as Guaranteed Transparency and Consensus.
