Semantification of the Blockchain – Semantic Blockchain

by Héctor Ugarte

Three that many possibles ways to “semantify” a blockchain are:

  1. Map the existing content of the blockchain to RDF. For this, is needed different tools and semantic components. And/or
  2. Store RDF Data on the blockchain. This data can contain URI pointing to other data store inside the blockchain (non HTTP URIs, for example: Smart Contracts Addresses). And/or
  3. Create a new blockchain framework (altcoin or from scratch) based completely on Semantic web principles (Handling blockchain metadata with RDF format, enabling SPARQL queries natively, etc).
