Summary

The actions of the players in each world would affect the world of the other game.Developers could release a new game that uses character data from another game world stored on a DAppChain. We have a product coming out next month that illustrates this process.”But how is the pegging problem solved, we asked. “There is a smart contract that facilitates the escrow, Loom will run some and developers can trust us or run their own. So they could be running on delegated proof of stake or even on proof of authority. But the crucial aspect will be that smart contract escrow which allows for the transfer of assets or tokens between the chains.As it is a smart contract, it will necessarily be public, but whether the devs of that smart contract are a trusted intermediary or otherwise remains to be seen. Yet, all still connected to eth.Dappchain generator.The benefits of sidechains have long been know, just as it has long been known they have one problem.

“Twitter-scale apps on ethereum” claims a team of VC funded eth developers that have been running Solidity coding lessons when not working on their game dapps or how to scale them.

This coming March, they are to showcase a dapp that runs on its own blockchain (dappchain) while connected to the ethereum network, so potentially solving the scalability problem for at least some projects, while providing an important piece of the puzzle for the entire network.

One dapp, one dappchain, they say. Allowing CryptoKitties, Etherdelta, Leroy-Twitter, or any other dapp, to handle millions of transactions, potentially fully free, with verifications virtually instant, while also connected to ethereum’s main-net.

They plan to do so by utilizing sidechains, a method that connects blockchains described as far back as 2014. One way to understand them is, instead of scaling vertically by having bigger blocks on ethereum or sharding ethereum’s chain, you scale horizontally by...
