The Menlo framework let's developers skip the setup and get to building quickly. It's built with a ReactJS skeleton and integrates Ethereum and IPFS, following some of the most popular dApp design patterns.
Enterprise Blockchain Infrastructure
Menlo dApps let the cloud do the heavy lifting by caching blockchain data in the cloud on what we call Content Nodes. While anyone can setup a Content Node, Menlo offers Content Node administration as part of our Premium Enterprise Support.
Share Knowledge, Earn Tokens
Block Overflow, an application for developer Q&A, is the demo dApp built with Menlo. It was released on testnet during the ONE token sale, and users could use their ONE tokens the mainnet release the moment the token sale ended.

Ask a question
Asking a question costs ONE tokens, which goes into a pool to pay the person with the best answer. Then, a 24 hour countdown timer starts.
Users post answers
When someone replies with an answer, they place ONE tokens into the pool too, in hopes that they have the right answer.
The pool grows
Each time an answer is posted, the pool grows, and the 24 hour timer resets.

When people stop providing answers, the most up-voted answer is the winner. All of the ONE tokens go to the winner.
Furthermore, all of Block Overflow is decentralized. All of the data on this website was read from the blockchain.
