Former CTO of Block.One Returns with Social Network Project
Former Block.one CTO and blockchain developer Daniel LARIMER announced his new project called Clarion. The goal of the development will be decentralized networks, allowing people to communicate without relying on trusted third parties. The main idea of the Clarion protocol is to provide the ability to send messages in various ways, for example, by email and regular messenger. It will also support group chats and allow one person to send messages to large groups of people. Instead of building another blockchain, Clarion will be a basic messaging protocol similar to the InterPlanetary File System (IPFS).
Clarion will focus on information movement, not cost. Therefore, it does not need the complex consensus mechanism that blockchains use, for example for mining coins. As a result, it will be more scalable and free from many of the limitations that typical blockchains have.
It is known that the project will use cryptography like traditional blockchains. This means that each user will have their own cryptographic object, controlled by a set of private keys. Attackers cannot easily impersonate other people.
