Holochain Forum

Open Source Chess

I got into a conversation around open source chess. And apparently there is a really big open source platform at lichess.org. They publish their server costs and I think it would be an interesting design challenge to think about how this would work and what costs would be like if there was a holochain based chess app where say, 50% of the load was hosted with people playing chess natively on their computers (just as a fully p2p holochain app) and 50% playing on hosted instances. What do you think? I would store my chess moves plus 10 others or so. Pretty minimal data. It seems like there is a bunch of analysis done and stuff like that too. not sure how that would be affected…

Here’s what it costs the community to run now:
