TangleShare is a bot on the Telegram platform, using the IOTA tangle (devnet) to store user information. In our case this is items and their locations You can then search for items published by others and ask if they would like to share that item with you or do any kind of other exchange you wish.
Telegram Api, IOTA Tangle, IOTA AREA CODES, Cassandra database, Telegram server, Google Cloud Engine
Google Cloud Engine is running the Telegram bot instance. Cassandra is used to buffer all item data. It is a little bit faster than a tangle query currently.
Telegram server stores the images/photos. Could be stored on Tangle as well Information on the Devnet/Mainnet is pruned from time to time. So this service would require the use of permanodes in the future. But currently Devnet is perfectly fine to showcase.
Telegram itself could be replaced by some chat.ixi/trinity module in the future! Then this sharing platform can become 100% decentralized
