Cornell working on something similar to Holochain?

Is it just me or does this project, Lightchain, sound very similar to Holochain?

Project Overview

You can find a detailed version of it on the web via a white paper analysis. This group comes from Cornell, but appears light years behind Holochain… the GitHub is rather bleak.

Just very interesting to see similar technology popping up replicating holochains approach. It’s similar to how we saw a plethora of different Ethereum alternatives and iterations once people realized how powerful Ethereums framework was.

What are your thoughts?
