Gitchain: Where Git Meets Bitcoin

rjmarvin (3001897) writes "A New crowdfunding project is combining the collaborative coding of GitHub with the distributed cloud storage of Bitcoin to create Gitchain, an application that acts as a local proxy for a network of decentralized, peer-to-peer Git repositories http://sdt.bz/71271. Canadian developer Yurii Rashkovskii came up with the idea of applying the decentralized storage of the Bitcoin blockchain to Git hosting, and he started a Kickstarter project https://www.kickstarter.com/pr... to fund it, which has just about hit its $10,000 goal. By storing Git metadata across the DHT (distributed hash table) popularized by Bitcoin and BitTorrent, he aims to store data on every node of the Gitchain network to ensure Git code redundancy."
