ERC-1577 introduces a new
contenthash field for ENS resolvers, aiming to standardize the way names map to network and content addresses. This enhancement ensures a more consistent system for applications to resolve ENS names to content on distributed systems like IPFS and Swarm. As part of this proposal, the
multihash fields are deprecated.
contenthash field standardizes ENS name resolutions to decentralized content. However, this content is challenging to retrieve and isn't indexed by conventional search engines. RSS3 Social Solution bridges this gap, making decentralized content easily discoverable and accessible to all Open Web builders.
While ERC-1577 aimed to standardize ENS name resolutions to distributed content, a significant challenge arose. Content stored on decentralized platforms isn't easily discoverable since it's not indexed by traditional search engines like Google. This poses a barrier for users trying to access decentralized content. Meanwhile, the nature of decentralized storages makes it also not easy for developers to pull the content data effectively.
RSS3 Social Solution, with its prowess in structuring on-chain data, emerged as a complementary solution to access ERC-1577 content:
In summary, RSS3 Social Solution supports indexing decentralized ERC-1577 content, ensuring easy discoverability and access of the content and enriching the Open Social landscape.
