Hi!

Here’s a rather lengthy article on the same subject (and some further pointers): https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/blockchain-elephant-jurgen-ziemer.


This is something we’ve been thinking in our startup too. I suppose one could say this is exactly the same problem as in more traditional (systems) integrations and is only exacerbated when operating with blockchains with more automation and without – or less of – centralized clearing houses. Maybe the most appropriate term in the traditional setting is _semantic integration_ and has been studied a number of years already.

Although not directly related, I’d like to point out there’s currently a proposal to define ZCash memo field in more detailed fashion at https://github.com/zcash/zips/pull/105. It looks to me it would be great if in the beginning one could somehow indicate the contents are, say, JSON-LD, OWL (and/or a pointer to off-chain data) or something along those lines so that if one accepts transactions broadly and processes this off-chain data too, “content sniffing” would be less of a problem. The ZCash and Ethereum folks are currently cooperating, as some of you might know,


Cheers,
Veikko Eeva

Just wanted to share this amazing (draft) paper which mentions interledger, ethereum, bitcoin, ricardian contracts and linked data

https://semanticblocks.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/linked_blockchain_paper.pdf

imagine tiying all these great technologies together into one system, I believe this paper is a blueprint to do exactly that, via semantic smart contracts
it's the best thing ive seen in this space since satoshi's white paper bitcoin, and perhaps including satoshi's white paper on bitcoin
I would look to start creating an implementation of this, likely to be open source (MIT license)
