EOS Creator Dan Larimer Introduces Latest Project After Jumping Ship

EOS architect and former CTO Dan Larimer introduced his latest project, dubbed ‘Clarion’ in an announcement on his GitHub page.

Larimer claims that the aim of the project is “to give everyone in the world the tools to broadcast their message to everyone who wants to hear their message without creating dependencies on centralized infrastructure.”

What is Clarion?

In the announcement, Larimer described Clarion OS as a friend-to-friend message propagation protocol. He said it would enable a variety of message flows between cryptographic identities.

Such message flows include asynchronous p2p (like email), real-time p2p (video/chat), one-to-many (like tweet/Facebook), or many-to-many (like an open chatroom/blockchain).

Ultimately, his ambitions for the project are to “provide the performance and reliability of a “centralized service with the freedom and independence of a logically decentralized network.”

EOS and Other Past Precedents

Larimer is most known for building the EOS blockchain, a project that saw a record-breaking $4 billion raised in a year-long ICO period in 2018. Other notable projects from Larimer are the BitShares decentralized exchange and the Steem “social blockchain.”

Larimer spoke at length about how Clarion would improve upon past attempts at these previous projects.

He mentioned RetroShare having the appropriate level of decentralization, but had an interface unsuitable for mobile devices. Blockchain-based networks, meanwhile, could not be practically utilized by home users at scale, because they require all full nodes to process all transactions.

What sets Clarion apart, Larimer said, is that it will utilize a progressive web application, which is powered by Web Assembly. With Web Assembly plugins, Larimer said it would be possible to build applications on Clarion OS, including tokens and smart contracts. He emphasized that it is distinct from other blockchain platforms in that the base layer has no need to reach a consensus on the “order” of user actions. 

Project Status

Clarion OS is only in the early design stage, Larimer said. Teams of developers are being assembled to construct the first prototypes, he continued. Additionally, he welcomed contributions from “anyone interested in restoring the internet to the level of logical decentralization that was intended.”

Throughout the announcement he decried censorship and control on the part of Big Tech firms. “Recent actions by Google, Amazon, and Apple have demonstrated that we cannot rely on app stores and hosting providers to distribute our applications and content,” he said. These concerns are a big part of the motivation for initiating the project.

Earlier this year, Larimer left his position as CTO of Block.one, which operates EOS. In a parting note, he told the company, “I have come to believe that you cannot provide ‘liberty as a service’ and therefore I will focus my attention on creating tools that people can use to secure their own freedom.”
