The evan.network builds on existing technology like a programmable blockchain with Ethereum, and a distributed file storage with IPFS.
It combines those two technologies and provides the storage and computing power and bandwidth to run distributed
applications with the AuthorityNodes.
All this infrastructure is exposed and made usable by fairly ordinary web-applications via the Blockchain Core Library.
This means that all data in the blockchain and all data in the IPFS are completely open to everyone to read,
unless encrypted, and the entire application code would run in the browser and is fully readable and modifiable. Accordingly, there exists a need for a third class of code, which isn’t as cryptographically secured as blockchain code, but also not as
They are just small webservices, that run on controlled servers providing controlled access to resources and contracts that others might need access too, but can’t be given full rights.
The Blockchain Core Library is the central tool used in all development with evan.network. It is actually a collection of own functionalities and wrappers around third party core functionalities like blockchain transactions and distributed file system operations.
