85: Oyster Protocol with Chris Garner

Let the Blockchain World be your Oyster!

Oyster is the future of website monetization and distributed storage, built on IOTA Tangle and Ethereum. Ethan talks to Chris Garner CMO at Oyster Protocol.


Oyster provides robust, redundant data storage

Files uploaded via Oyster are stored on the IOTA Tangle.

The IOTA Tangle (Directed Acyclic Graph) is used for data retention and Proof of Work negotiation between Nodes. The Smart Contract technology of the Ethereum Blockchain is used to produce Pearls (the token), therefore activating the unique token attributes that enables Oyster operation.

This means that an excess of redundant duplicates are stored throughout the network topology of the Tangle, therefore mitigating the threat of data loss. Nodes running the Protocol perform Proof of Work to guarantee that the Tangle retains the data.

We’ve covered the IOTA Tangle briefly on previous podcasts but the IOTA Tangle is a Directed Acyclic Graph, which means it is a blockless distributed ledger. It’s mighty promising stuff – but if we don’t have Blocks – we won’t have Blockchains – and we won’t need The Blockchain Show! So we’re keeping a watchful eye!

Oyster Unlocks the Dormant Revenue Potential of Millions of Websites.
