[3Box.js by uPort](https://github.com/uport-project/3box-js) is a project for keeping private and public data about an account without relying on blockchain storage. It is currently under development and requires metamask, but it would be interesting to have it integrated with Universal Logins at some point.
From my understanding, it uses orbit-db which is a single key database that is kept in sync with IPFS, storing both private and public data, by using a web3 "sign message" format. In order to adapt it to Universal logins we would have one orbit-db for each private key that is added to the main account, and those private keys would have to communicate and sync their information. Since the only consequence for any failure to sync is simply having one device with outdated information, we should make the sync as painless as possible.
The private information that would be stored in the app could be information about the keys (which machines they are, where that device was last seen, if a key belongs to a paper backup or not, etc), while the public information could be made to create a profile with basic information like a name and picture, or an IPFS file with a series of text/tweets posted.
*priority: nice to have, something to work on in the future*
