We’re back with more cool news about GeoDB! This post originally appeared on Medium, this is an adapted version :).
Smartphone apps like geoCash are undoubtedly cool, but a web browser is still at the heart of every internet interaction. Keeping in mind that we decided to continue showing part of our demo with our webwallet app to showcase and get a deeper understanding of how GeoDB is going to work at a conceptual level.
You can find the webwallet demo here. Right now, it is necessary to install the Metamask plugin (it is necessary to configure it to use the Kovan network) in your browser if you wish to access full functionality, but don’t worry! It is not mandatory to get a good grasp of our intent here.
As any webwallet, it comes with the basic feature of showing your funds so you can boast about your GEO balance with your friends. But lets skip what we already know and jump to the exciting things!
In the webwallet, you can make basic interactions to reap GEO rewards while it is active. This is just for playground purposes, as that feature is much deeply implemented in our geoCash demo, which you can checkout in our latest post.
A beautifully crafted App Store mock up is also online! Here, just as you would do with the Google Play Store, you can purchase apps with your hard earned GEO tokens. With this, we are looking to foster innovation through the developers community established around GeoDB. Developers will be able to upload their creations and get a reward for it.
Finally, as a part of GeoDB infrastructure, a simple query form is available for you to play with. Pay with GEO and obtain a customized dataset.
But do not forget this one thing, our dear friends, everything shown so far is part of a demo, but what a demo! As we have noted in our previous post, we want to show you what we want to do in GeoDB and we believe that this is the way to go.
Nevertheless, make no mistake, this is a demo but the GEO token is an ERC-20 token, and our AppStore and our form to query information are developed using Ethereum smart contracts deployed on Kovan. In other words, our demo uses similar technologies to those that will be used in our final solution.
Keep your eyes peeled, we will be rolling more features out soon!
Until next time!
