Peepeth is two things: an open-source smart contract running on the Ethereum blockchain (data storage), and Peepeth.com (a front-end). This document explains how they interact and discusses some other moving parts.

Peepeth's smart contract stores all Peepeth data, such as account information and Peep content. Well, it doesn't really store that data per se; rather, it stores a link to that data. The data itself is saved to a decentralized data store called the Interplanetary File System (IPFS).

Why not just store data on the blockchain itself? It's expensive. All blockchain transactions cost gas, a measure of computational / storage requirements. Storing data is particularly expensive. It's much cheaper to just store a link to the data.

Why use the blockchain at all? The blockchain provides a guarantee of who posted something when, and ties together all the data in one location.

Peepeth.com, this website, is a front-end for the Peepeth smart contract. This site reads to and writes from the contract. It also adds other functionality that's impossible to do with only the blockchain, such as email notifications and Twitter cross-posting.

Peepeth.com works a lot like normal web applications. The main difference is that the data store, the smart contract, is open source.

Peepeth.com is centralized. It can be censored and taken down. However, if it does go down, anybody can create another front-end and restore the back-end's incorruptable data.

Peepeth lets you post your actions to the blockchain in bulk. Normally, you'd have to pay Ethereum transaction fees for every Peep or follow, an expensive and slow procedure.

But with Bulk Posting, you can post or follow on Peepeth.com instantly and freely, and then save all outstanding Peeps to the blockchain at your leisure in a single, cheap transaction. This makes it almost free to use Peepeth.

Bulk Posting works by saving a centralized record of your activity on Peepeth.com. When you're ready, Peepeth lets you save all of that data to the blockchain in a single transaction. Currently, you can save up to 15 actions off-chain at a time before having to commit them to the blockchain.

Use this feature when you're posting non-critical Peeps. Other front-ends cannot trust the timestamps of Peeps that are saved in a batch; instead, those front-ends have to assume that all batch-saved Peeps share the same timestamp of the Bulk Posting itself. However, Peepeth.com keeps track of the original timestamps, so batch-saved Peeps still appear in chronological order on Peepeth.com.

You need to sign in to use Bulk Posting. See below.

You can post your Peeps to Twitter after authenticating. You can toggle this option for every Peep you post.
