Using a PoS blockchain for other purposes


Hi all,

What would be the best approach if you need a PoS blockchain to hold other information than transactions?

The only thing I can think off is forking peercoin, and keep it up to date with the repo.

Are there any other options that I’m unable to see?


The functionality that I’m looking for is publishing requests for work on the chain with a reward (in coins). So that any peer can fetch and execute the work to get the reward.



Great stuff!

However, I’m not sure if it can do what I’m after, since peershares don’t seem to be transferable inside the new network (see edit).
Or am I wrong?

I’ll definitely investigate peershares further, thanks for highlighting!

#4 maybe, but it is still under development
