multichain on android ?

I was thinking that maybe multichain can be use on Android, or iOS. Do you think this is possible ?

I'm afraid it's not currently possible, and in general these systems are better suited for lightweight blockchain clients than full nodes.

Thanks !

I see multichain is compatible bitcoincore (API) and i see there is a lib "bitcoinj" as a sample that implement access to multichain. So, i think its possible to use sample-bitcoinj in an Android app (like bitcoin wallet for bitcoin) and use a blockchain from multichain ? or i'm so wrong :) ?


In a general sense, you're right - an adapted copy of BItcoinJ can access a MultiChain blockchain, so long as it's an open network (anyone-can-connect=true in the blockchain parameters). But you'll need to adapt some of the transaction building logic in BitcoinJ if you're using native assets.
