Codius is Ripple's nuclear weapon

The brilliant thing here is that they can't lose. If any other platform wants to compete with Codius, it ALSO has to make that platform accessible to any asset. Which again will ensure the asset with the best technical features will be that asset that is most used by applications.

it's a powerful biz model and they have the brains, funds and momentum to back it up

it's just what google did; they levelled the informational playing field, knowing that their entire biz would stand to benefit, being built from the ground up to run on "free" informational transfer -- they were confident their services would win out, and they won big, very big

Have they been working on Codius all this time, or have they just resurrected it recently?

 

If my memory serves me correct (which it might not) I thought Codius was put on the back burner when ETH came out and Ripple appeared to pivot towards specialising in the x-border banking world.

Codius was put on the back burner because it required Interledger. Two years later: check, ILP ready. Now focus to Codius is (hopefully) brought back, as the ultimate application platform with ultimate freedom, using ANY asset you want, including the one that is the most fast and reliable, and the cheapest to use.

Codius for me is the realisation of the whole vision, based only on a gut feeling and a sparkle in the eye of Mr Katz as he talks about it. I am intrigued and excited to see what it can achieve. I also love the name, it rolls of the tongue as something superior, codius, codius, almost like a greek god :wizard:

I agree, Codius is the perfect name for running code in the cloud.

Listen to David Schwartz talking about Codius in 2015. Notice that he has a very clear vision of what Codius is. Then the project went on stealth.

This talk with David Schwartz was streamed live on Jan 27, 2015... Ethereum's live blockchain was initially launched on July 30th, 2015. Were David and Vitalik Buterin ever working together, was this some sort of weird cosmic coincidence, serendipity, kismet?

In the google talk, they say that Vitalik crashed on the couch with Stephan, or one of the other Ripple founders for a while before Ethereum came about.

I’m as excited as you all are but Codius is some way off. I would be surprised to see much activity in this space for a year or 2 and I’ve been watching the space very closely

You can’t just drop a smart contract platform and create an enterprise-grade ecosystem overnight.

To appreciate the timeframe required, just think about how long Solidity has been used/researched and the number of massive security issues that still exist. They aren’t ready for the small or big league.

Ripple lost first mover advantage in a massive way but hopefully they have avoided many of the problems that Solidity will be stuck with forever unless Ethereum hard-forks a few times. We saw what happened with The DAO.

I’ve been begging Ripple to engage the community they need to make his work. Still haven’t got a reply yet. Who knows, maybe I’ll get a surprise message one day...

Interesting to note at the Blently github repo is that the following line has been added to the README.md eight days ago:

Quote

ESC and Cryptlets SDK Overview and Roadmap - Architecture and design tour of the preview release of the Cryptlet Framework SDK for building enterprise smart contracts. The preview release introduces cryptlet development detail about architecting and designing enterprise grade blockchain applications for the most popular blockchain platforms. Samples, libraries and a test drive development environment...coming soon.
