There’s an interesting platform for the Bitcoin Cash (BCH) network called ‘Member,’ which allows users to post censorship resistant messages tied to specific locations around the world.
Member: Tethering Censorship Resistant Memos to Any Geographical Location With Bitcoin Cash
Over the past few weeks, since the BCH upgrade back in May, there’s been a lot of developers creating applications that utilize OP_Return transactions and the extra space added to the data carrier size. The protocol improvement has allowed programmers to create a wide range of applications that tether all kinds of data to the BCH chain like Memo.cash, Blockpress, Chainfeed, and others. Another unique platform, called Member, allows users to tie Memo-style messages to any geographical location in the world. Essentially, after tying a BCH wallet with some funds to Member users can easily tag their location coordinates with a special message that will last forever.
“Member is memo transaction browsing software with a client/server architecture. This design allows the client to be featureful (fat) and the server to be simple — Just serving requests on the database,” explains the website.
It allows users to choose their client and server separately — Maybe choosing a client with particular features, and a server that is geographically nearby.
Sharing Messages Tied to Locations for Less Than a Penny
The BCH developer ‘Freetrade’ explains the open source Member allows users to remain in full control of their identity, and private keys never leave the client side. Basically, anyone can log in with a private key (Compressed WIF format) to use Member’s messaging system or use a public BCH key (any format) to follow a specific person’s posts. You don’t have to be in the location to tie a message to a specific geographical area, but if you desired to use your current coordinates the Member app uses a browser location detection feature so you can toggle a message to your exact location.
When the app was announced a great deal of BCH proponents explained they enjoyed the Member platform and discussed a few ways the developers could improve Member map. Other enthusiasts liked the idea that Member connected the Bitcoin Cash network to the Open Street Map (OSM) protocol. Scrolling through the Member map shows a bunch of messages have been posted all around the world.
A good number of the messages coupled to these areas shows a lot of the memos are the names and addresses of businesses. For example, there’s James the Butcher in Shepperton, Le Gros Bar in France, Southern New England Computer Services in Boston, Kansas Tree Care in Kansas, and many more. With the platform’s ability to post censorship resistant memos to any location for less than a penny it can provide some extremely affordable advertising.
