Network Interoperability


I think it would be possible for BitDNS to be a completely separate network and separate block chain, yet share CPU power with Bitcoin. The only overlap is to make it so miners can search for proof-of-work for both networks simultaneously.
The networks wouldn't need any coordination. Miners would subscribe to both networks in parallel. They would scan SHA such that if they get a hit, they potentially solve both at once. A solution may be for just one of the networks if one network has a lower difficulty.
I think an external miner could call getwork on both programs and combine the work. Maybe call Bitcoin, get work from it, hand it to BitDNS getwork to combine into a combined work.
Instead of fragmentation, networks share and augment each other's total CPU power. This would solve the problem that if there are multiple networks, they are a danger to each other if the available CPU power gangs up on one. Instead, all networks in the world would share combined CPU power, increasing the total strength. It would make it easier for small networks to get started by tapping into a ready base of miners.

Interoperability with Bitcoin can go beyond value transfer. Every detail must be taken into account.
We can recycle Plasma generation via PoW for example. Or the other way around.
You need to compute a PoW link in order to generate Plasma required by transactions on NoM. It may be possible to use the PoW links to merge mine Bitcoin; the other way around is to merge mine ZNN and create Plasma for Bitcoin feeless txs.
