The development of blockchain——inferred from the development history of computers.

The first computer vs. The first blockchain

Purpose of design: electronic computing vs. cryptocurrency payments
Form of Design: A computer the size of a football field and working at a very slow speed vs. A chain with 10-minute blocks and only simple script transfer

Computers of today

Desktop, all-in-one, tablet, mobile and many more.
The aim is to solve all the problems of human communication. This purpose is not inconsistent with the purpose of the scientists who designed the computer in the first place.

Carving the boat and comparing blockchain developments

Blockchain has seen many innovations since Satoshi Nakamoto designed BTC 14 years ago.

For example, it has moved from a crypto payment scenario to the need for intelligent programming.

Compare the original intention and final trend of computer and blockchain;

Computers were originally designed to solve the problem of computing data, and blockchains to solve the problem of crypto payments.
Eventually, the computer became a tool for solving human social interaction. Blockchain was pursued by humans as a tool for solving human trust-based social interaction.

Comparing blockchain with the technical framework of computers

Second Generation Computers vs. Ethereum

The second generation of computers were transistors and batch systems, which were very expensive at the time, and it was natural to think of ways to waste less machine time. This is in line with the gas expensive on the ethereum

Third Generation Computer vs Polkadot

The third generation of computers is characterised by integrated circuit chips and multichannel programming, characterised by multichannel programs. Multichannel technology is implemented to solve the problem of multiple programs competing for or sharing the same resources (e.g. CPU) in an orderly scheduling manner, i.e. multiplexing, which is divided into temporal and spatial multiplexing.
This is in line with the relayer and parallel chains of Polkadot. Polkadot should more accurately be defined as a time-sharing operating system. Parallel chains and parallel threads are compared to processes and threads respectively. The parallel chain message protocol XCMP is compared to the inter-process communication pipe.

Fourth Generation Computers vs. Future Blockchain Architecture

The fourth generation of computers is the contemporary personal computer, where everyone has his or her own computer. It is used to communicate with society as a whole, to learn, etc.
The blockchain framework of the future will also allow most organisations to have their own chain. It will be used to solve the problem of trust in communication with society as a whole.

The blockchain opportunity compared to the development of computers

TCP/IP and blockchain cross-chain interoperability protocols

The TCP/IP protocol allows computer systems of any type to communicate with each other.
Cross-chain interoperability protocols are designed to link arbitrary blockchains at the beginning. Examples include the well-known LayerZero protocol, the wormhole protocol, and Circle.

Products that have grown on the protocol (Amazon vs OmniBTC)

Amazon products combine TCP/IP and computers to allow humans to shop happily around the world.
OmniBTC combines the LayerZero/wormhole protocol to allow humans to trust and easily use decentralised finance. (e.g. pledge assets on one chain to lend assets on any chain, or exchange assets from one chain to assets on any chain)

Domain Name System

DNS and Digital Identity
Each chain now has its own Domain Name System (DNS), most notably ENS on Ethereum, but these are still a far cry from DNS.
The CID digital identity system on ComingChat is designed to be an aggregated DNS or root DNS, which can be used to retrieve any domain name system on any chain, such as ENS.

Final Expectations

Beyond that, there is so much to play with in this vibrant blockchain world that we can all compare, anticipate and even create.
For example, we can expect the Move public chain (Aptos/Sui) to run a more suitable blockchain operating system.
For example, what will future products shape on the full chain ecosystem based on various cross-chain protocols?

This is just a brief introduction to the future of blockchain, so we can all talk and look forward to the future of blockchain in our minds and what problems we want to solve with the future of blockchain technology.
