Golem in 2022. Lots to do!

Golem as a DApp Stack

  • Simple decentralized exchange (DEX)
  • Lending application
  • Oracles
  • Gasless forwarder

Challenges

  1. For the requestors, this would help them to choose the best performing providers for their needs. For the provider, it will make it easier for them to decide which requestors they would like to offer their computational services on the marketplace.
  2. We need incoming and outgoing network access (such as access to Geth and/or IPFS nodes) to allow the DApps to be able to flourish. This requires us to enable access from the internet to DApps, with the integration of easy-to-remember names (e.g. DNS or ENS). This will probably also require some sort of firewall or packet filter to help guarantee safety for our providers, at the same time as giving access to the DApp running in containers.
  3. Payment architecture so that an application can run without an active requestor. We like to refer to this as “Unstoppable services”.
  4. Another of our challenges will be to create persistent storage in the form of a Persistence API. So that we can make the network resistant to loss of data on individual provider nodes or incorrect operations. We’re investigating NoSQL databases or doing some sort of side-chain that can help nodes with synchronization.

Unstoppable Golem Services

Token Visibility

  • Oracles for GLM
  • Support for GLM on different platforms (e.g. Compound)
  • Applications for playing with GLM
  • Staking mechanisms (which would likely require a new type of token in the Golem ecosystem)
  • More chain integration
