Overview

Introduction

Lightstreams is a technology stack for building decentralized applications. It has a fast blockchain for supporting responsive applications that don't have

Lightstreams consists of two public networks:

  • A fast Etheruem-compatible blockchain network for deploying responsive smart contracts that control the flow of an application.

  • The IPFS network for storing application data in decentralized manner with privacy controls for accessing data.

Components

The Lightstreams technology stack consists of the following components.

  • Lightchain - An Ethereum-compatible blockchain client that provides improvements in speed.

  • Smart Vault - A decentralized datastore with privacy controls.

  • Lightstreams SDK - A Software Development Kit for interacting with a Lightstreams node.

  • Gateway API - An interface for application to easily connect to the Lightstreams network.

  • Lightstreams Block Explorer - For viewing transactions that have been recorded on the Lightstreams blockchain.
