Volatile Blockchain / Temporary Blockchain

The idea

Merge the concepts of

  • “Connected Blockchains” (see https://cosmos.network for a good example)
  • Autonomous networks that support split & merge

To obtain a way of creating a temporary blockchain in an autonomous network that can exists over mesh network (bluetooth, isolated networks, isolated countries, etc).

Challenges

  • Determine the best consensus rules that allows a smaller network to “take decisions”
  • Offer the option to automatically convert the temporary coin to a permanent coin as soon as networks are merged

Examples

  • Create a temporary blockchain for a music festival, allow people to convert their existing permanent coins to the temporary money, lose internet during the event, and then translate-back the unused temporary coins
