Blockstack Database?

Curious where/how an apps database/data is stored (outside of users’ own data)

Also are developers using CompassDB with Gaia? Or simply storing data in JSON format?

Seems much easier to use a conventional DB to store everything but the user data; however, that kind of defeats the purpose.

Would love to learn more. TIA!

Have you seen Radiks? It gives you the semantics of MongoDB, but ensures that users own the primary replicas of their data. Lots of projects here use it (or use something like it).

Hi, it’s been 9 months since the last post. Curious if Radiks (last commit Oct 2019) is still the preferred method or if there are other solutions to store a central database for an app?

Blockstack has been great for creating personal use tools/services, but there are still few community centric Blockstack apps that require a central database to query many user’s data at once.

Thanks in advance,
