Storage Monkey lets users share their address aliases across DApps, in a secure and decentralised fashion.
The Storage Monkey Protocol allows users to store user-assigned aliases to addresses in a decentralised and secure way. Currently users of DApps can assign aliases to addresses, but these alias are only stored in browser local storage. This means the aliases can be lost and do not port across applications. Storage Monkey lets you store aliases encrypted on IPFS and share them across applications. Since all data is encrypted on IPFS, all configs remain secure. The sharing is facilitated by a simple SDK for DApp developers. The SDK lets developers integrate all CRUD functionality for Storage Monkey aliases in a simple and easy way. The CID of each users alias file is stored in a smart contract. Any config file could be stored and shared between different applications - the alias to address standard is only a first step. Our hope is that in the future new standards will emerge, allowing for DApps to interoperate in a secure and decentralised way.
