Hey, A Blockchain-Based Social Network

Leveraging Ethereum Sidechains Towards Scalability


At Hey, we're building a new breed of social network based on the Blockchain. As most main Blockchains present scalability issues (e.g. Etherem scales at 20 transactions/s), we have decided to run our decentralised application on a so-called sidechain, which is an offspring of the Ethereum mainchain and which enables us to scale to the throughput required to support the rich interactions happening within a social network. Come and discover the specific architectural peculiarities that it takes to run a decentralised application on a sidechain.
