I would like to share with you the idea of creating a Managed Symbol Networks Solution in the Cloud
I managed to create two proof of concepts on top of Symbol. They went smooth in terms of application development, but for setting up a private network of more than one node wasn’t the same experience.
Something seemed off.
The required effort and maintainability were either too manual or hard to find all the documentation.
To me, that’s really a stopper as a solo developer or small teams that cannot effort huge dedication to non-development tasks. Each hour I expend in infrastructure, it’s one hour less dedicated to delivering value to the user. And for the Blockchain Industry, time is XEM.
The good part? Seems like there are more people that feel the same way. Check NIP-11. We are not alone
I have been working in some node automation, that’s quite a craft made solution that only applies for the two Proof of Concepts I created, but I do see it as a good step forward to create a Cloud-Based Solution to create and manage Symbol Private Networks.
Other Blockchains have the same idea, Blockchain Managed Solutions:
So, why don’t do the same in Symbol?
I would love to hear from you. What do you think? Have you the same pain points?
I created a 3 min survey to know more. I would appreciate a lot to receive your feedback there
Looking forward to hearing from you
