A futures market for p2p gateways to facilitate resilient uncensorable commerce sites in order to solve the problem of trusted site discoverability & hedging exit scams


This projects aims to combine a few various different technologies that work in an ecosystem. The prime value point was using chron adapters from chainlink to provide a uptime to on-chain oracles fueling the futures contracts. The targeted use case was to track various different internet gateways into other parts of the off-chain web, like dat project and tor. Users can place a futures contract on whether or not a site will go down within a certain time frame. By creating a futures market on p2p sites, not only are endpoints stored on chain thereby increasing visibility, this lends next steps into performing futures contracts on order volume.

How it's made

used ethereum for the futures contract used chainlink for the oracles used mobx for frontend state management used hyperswarm and hypercore to store the off-chain signatures used dat for the p2p file gateway used tor for the proxy and private status endpoints
