Double blockchain solution explanation

FreeMarketOne features the implementation of two blockchains running side by side. First one is a base blockchain and it stores information about users' encrypted data, reviews, ranks system etc. Those records are permanent. Second blockchain is using float genesis block and contains data about offers and trade history. It expires in approximately 3...6 months. This means that that the public records of transactions on the main blockchain where transactions between peers are recorded, will be wiped out clean periodically, producing a clean slate for the traders with the generation of a new periodic genesis block thus neutralizing the snoopy eyes of unfriendly entities who believe that they have not only the right to know everything about what you do in life, but are also entitled to a share of everything you earn. However, the rating system of traders which will be based on the volume and performance of achieved trades cumulatively, will be upheld in a parallel [first] blockchain, that will preserve the details and the rating of each trader, while wiping out the record for the trades they have made before the new genesis block is generated.
