Overview

Build powerful privacy-centric decentralized applications.

Introduction

Lightstreams is a technology stack for developing decentralized applications. The stack has a fast blockchain designed to support responsive applications and a decentralized datastore with privacy controls.

Lightstreams consists of two public networks:

  • A fast Etheruem-compatible blockchain network with smart contracts capabilities to manage application flow.

  • 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 recorded on the Lightstreams blockchain.
