Maybe every "app" should have a separate Ethereum block-chain ?

Apps like "colored coins", stocks, and DNS should belong to Ethereum chain or separate chains, controlled by a single protocol ?

Maybe the data is better to be stored in separate chains, what do you think ?

    I have designed an Ethereum-based global currency system, and I planned to have a totally separate duplicate of Ethereum. But I do see that the same benefits would come from a separate blockchain. Good idea.

    Is there a way to do this and still get the same security of having all miners on a single chain? because that seems like a really big reason to have everything on a single chain.

    Is the problem that the size of the blockchain could get too big for many people to reasonable run a full node?

    Things like reliable distributed exchanges between currencies might rely on them both running on the same underlying blockchain?

    @Camdoc you mean the sub-currency example? (it can be found here https://github.com/k1n0k0/ethereum-simulator/)

    Anyway you cannot 'just make separate blockchains'. You would need a mechanism 1)for that to be secure 2) to be able to send coin across.

    Having separate blockchain of some sort *could* be really useful for increasing the ability to deal with larger trading volumes.

    Btw: what is that "It is the Microsoft of Cryptos" about ethereum based off on?
