Graph DB Sidechain with Fluree

This proposal is about building a data-centric metadata sidechain that will be powered by W3C semantic web standards and provide ability to link and share data across DApps all while guaranteeing the same degree of integrity, trust and proveable provenance as the on-chain data.

Problem Statement

Off-chain DApp data storage options build silos that limit data’s use across the ecosystem and lack comparable on-chain immutability/proof

Proposed Solution

Build a provable, data-centric sidechain for DApps with Fluree immutable graph ledger/DB that leverages W3C semantic linked-data standards

Team

Brian Platz, Co-CEO and Co-Chairman of Fluree
Dmitri Safine, Chief Technology Officer, Ikigai Technologies
Michael Yagi, Chief Executive Officer, Ikigai Technologies

Problem Statement

Some fields in documents need to stay hidden or restricted due to privacy concerns. Implementing this at the field-level is a difficult task

Proposed Solution

Use Fluree data-centric cell-level security with Smart Functions to secure off-chain data shared between dApps and their users

Logosphere – Cell Level Security

Fluree implements data centric security at its core through a feature called Smart Functions which conditionally defines who can access or modify data at the cell level. This way, the access rules are baked inside the data itself residing on an immutable ledger.
