Ideas to build on top of Farcaster

  • Alchemy for Farcaster
    • I think there‚Äôs definitely going to be a high-performance and availability indexer for Farcaster. Focus on API simplicity, and make it feel like a web2 API.
  • Config.xyz
    • Extend the Farcaster user data structure to implement config.xyz.
  • Identity tools. Ceramic on top of Farcaster.
    • If you build config.xyz, I think you should build a library to make it easy for anyone to extend the Farcaster users data structure. This should eventually turn the Farcaster user data structure into a decentralized identifier that other projects can use, extend and build on top of.
  • IPFS x Farcaster
    • I think there should be a community-funded node that syncs everything to IPFS. I feel this is going to be important in the case of an attack and to hold nodes accountable.
  • Self-hosting tools
    • How can we make it very easy for individuals and startups to self-host Farcaster data? Start with IPFS, Arweave, Amazon S3.
  • Key management service
    • A service that Farcaster clients can use in order to allow users to cloud back up their user's private keys. Follow the Casa model.
  • Casthouse
    • You can fork doghouse. Add Ethereum sign in, token-gated spaces and acquire users by focusing on spaces that DAOs host.
  • Mint a cast as an NFT
  • Blogging engine
  • Public groups engine
  • Goodreads on top of Farcaster.
  • A marketplace where developers can publish feed algorithms.
