Semantification of the Blockchain – Semantic Blockchain
by Héctor Ugarte
Three that many possibles ways to “semantify” a blockchain are:
- Map the existing content of the blockchain to RDF. For this, is needed different tools and semantic components. And/or
- 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
- 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).
