TL;DR: We showcase a SoLiD-based system using which users can provide access to web resources to other users in exchange for a payment via the blockchain.
Abstract: Our demo showcases a system that allows users to provide access to web resources in exchange for payments via the blockchain. Our system enables users to create offers for their resources or buy access rights for resources of other users. Access rights can be granted only for a limited amout of time. We built our system as SoLiD Pods and Apps: We developed two server modules for SoLiD Pods that automatically (1) grant access for valid payments via the blockchain and (2) remove expired access rights. On top, we developed a SoLiD App that allows to offer resources, browse and request offered resources, and make payments via the blockchain.
