Abstract
Blockchain application development is unnecessarily hard, partially because of how new the
technology is, but also because of certain imposed limitations on the current status quo of
how blockchains are used today. In this paper, we discuss the problems with current blockchain
implementations and a solution to these problems. We introduce Lamden: a software package
of development tools that includes a blockchain generator, community collaboration tools, and
independent chain-to-chain communication to create vast networks of blockchain applications
that can transfer any asset across them.

Motivation
In the past several years, we have seen an influx of blockchain technologies hit- ting the market. These technologies
are touted as a means to an end of the centralized banking and financial systems. However, these blockchains rely on
flawed systems that do not take into account the application of said technologies into the current infrastructure space. As
a result, blockchain technology is seg- regated from the mainstream financial systems, and thus is ironically hindered by
achieving its end goal.
   The Lamden Project is an effort to create software development tools that increase the mass adoption of blockchain
technology so infrastructure can revo- lutionize the market systems and cause realistic innovation within the markets.Laid
out in this white paper is our critiques of the current state of the markets, and how we plan on improving this space.
Problems with Current Blockchain Implementations
There are many fundamental flaws with the blockchain architecture that prevent it from becoming a ...

Bloated Chains
Carrying on with the Ethereum model, because the ledger is public, anyone can deploy whatever smart contracts
they’d like. As a result, even though the blockchain is only two years old, the size of a full node is 242GB
7
, which is even
larger than the current size of a Bitcoin full node which is around 152GB
8
. Having to install a full node, or at least a light
chain which is still around 20Gb of data, is a hefty barrier of entry for someone who just wants to dabble in smart contract
development.
   Compare the time it takes to fully sync a node with the time it takes to install Python, Node.js, or any other programming
environment to start poking around. The inconvenience and download size alone are unfeasible to most devel- opers and
companies, let alone the average user who is curious about blockchain technology.
Transactions per Second (Scalability)
Modern blockchains have a notoriously low throughput rate which causes transaction times to be slow, and a bac...

The project is broken up into three sections, Saffron, Flora, and Clove, which each add a layer to end goal of providing
hyperfast blockchains for developer to test, experiment, and deploy across a network of other blockchain systems.
   Saffron is the generator tool to deploy private chains on an internal network without any hassle. Flora is a central
repository for smart contract packages and templates, private chain naming services, and blockchain discovery. Clove
is the network that handles payment channel swap processes between chains and facilitates communication between
blockchain apps on the network in a way that remains trustless and decentralized.
Saffron: A Generator Tool
Instead of having a single mainnet which suffers from the problems men- tioned above, breaking up blockchains into
individual use cases and having them interact with each other when needed solves many problems with low blockchain
adoption rate. For example, an organization would have their own blockchain for their own web app. This allo...

Generator Tool
Saffron is taking design queues from other package management CLI (Command-Line Interface) tools such as pip
12
,
yeoman
13
, and npm
14
to gener- ate private blockchains as their own development projects. Generation through the CLI
took is as simple as ‘saffron init’. Through this CLI application, you will be able to interact with the chain in a simplified API
that abstracts most of the complexities of blockchain technologies from you.
   The initial blockchain technology that we are implementing is Ethereum, and so developers will be able to initialize
these chains, create accounts, mine blocks, and deploy contracts in a sub-processed instance of geth, Ethereum’s client
written in Go.
   By abstracting the main interaction components away from geth into a CLI tool, we are able to then provide a RESTful
API service for interacting with these private chains. A RESTful API allows for blockchains to be interacted with across the
Internet in an...

system, we are able to abstract com...

Clove: Anonymous Router Enabling Chain-To-Chain Interfacing
The main technological feat of the Lamden Project is its cryptographic ledger and routing system that connects
private chains together. By instead of recreat- ing an entirely new chain and instead shifting focus towards distributed
private chains only tied together by a routing infrastructure, we can avoid blockchain bloat, the need to ‘sync’ with the
network before interacting with it, increas- ing transaction costs, and guarantee a future-proof platform that will last years
regardless of the further improvements upon general blockchain technology.
Routing
Clove is primarily the infrastructure that links private chains together over a common protocol, much like a telephone
network. The Ledger takes care of interaction between all chains and provides a common set of interface op- tions to that
chains can be treated the same ways in computer programming environments and platforms for further integration away
from Flora.
   A main value add...

When the computing cluster receives this payload, the cluster will compile the Solidity contract code into bytecode that
must be deployed onto each chain within the next block. The opposing chains’ bytecodes are sent to each other and signed
with a public identifier key so that they can independently verify that the correct contract code was indeed deployed in
the next block on the chain.
Figure 1: Alice initiates a swap by sending a message to the Ledger. The Ledger then takes the swap requirements and
compiles them into Solidity bytecode to be deployed on each chain.
Figure 2: The bytecode is signed with each chain’s public key and sent to both parties. Alice deploys their contract. Bob
keeps a copy to verify later.
Figure 3: The same occurs for Bob.
