I’ve just heard of Ethereum Push Notification Service. Basically, it allows dApps, smart contracts and even centralized / traditional applications to send notifications to their users.
I think it could be a great opportunity for Storj for 2 mains reasons:
- It would allow Storj to get in touch with its community without having to get their email, and so on.
- Currently, the payload of the notifications is stored on IPFS but the architecture allows for other storage protocols to be implemented. It could be real good use case for Storj.
I know point 1 may raise some legal issues. But in my point of view, Storj could still be a real good storage layer for EPNS (point 2).
I’m just discovering it but if you want to get more details, check the website and read the lightpaper (at least p. 1&2) to get the whole idea.
Would love to hear from you guys/girls
Happy new year and take care!
