SyncNet is an experimental new browser built on top of BitTorrent Sync and (soon) Colored Coins. Every time you access a site, you store all of its contents on your machine. The next user to request the site can get the contents from both your machine and the original server. As more people access a page, it becomes available from more machines, reducing the load on the original server.
I feel like there’s a connection between Bittorent and Crousourcing and overall distribution of load of things that I should figure out how to capture into a more general statement.
Any help would be appreciated.
What’s the common thread here?
I’m thinking maybe some sort of universal client that people run, that’s part of the IoT, and it accepts thousands of different request types.
This shared browsing could be one. Searching for aliens could be one. Mining digital currency could be one (or verifying them).
