Redplaza Marketplace

As announced in Redshift, here is my proposal for a decentralized marketplace that runs on Dero.
You can see the proposal (README.md file) and some of the code that has been written here: https://github.com/Peppinux/redplaza-dero-marketplace
It is still in the early phase of development, and that’s why all of you community members can give feedback and help make it better. Thanks.

@Support , Thank you Capt, I really appreciate it.

I’d like to have some feedback about one feature of the marketplace:
As explained in the proposal, products can be stored on-chain and off-chain.

  • Storing them on-chain has the downside of costing gas and bloating the chain.
  • Storing them off-chain has the downside of relying on a third party, whether it is IPFS or a centralized server that stores the JSON data. This gives away some of the anonymity, since users fetching the list of off-chain products could be tracked, as the action would happen outside of the DERO NW. That wouldn’t be too big of a deal since VPNs exist and reading a list of products is not equal to buying them, but still.

What do you think about this?
Should I get rid of the on-chain inventory to prevent bloating?
Or instead, should I get rid of the off-chain inventory to prevent tracking?
Or am I good leaving them both as they are now and letting the users decide what’s best for them?

I’m asking Capt but, of course, input from everybody is appreciated. Thanks.

Storing on chain has costs and bloat issues. Better to store small size items like licenses/keys, urls, en/decryption-keys, contact info etc. on chain. For bigger sizes items better to use third party protocols/servers.

So better to have both options and let the users decides.
