China’s national blockchain project introduces Polkadot support. Chinese government-backed blockchain project, the Blockchain Service Network, or BSN, is adding support for another batch of main blockchain protocols. On Nov. 26, it revealed that it would incorporate Polkadot, Oasis and Bityaun into its ecosystem on Nov. 30.
The Polkadot Blockchain Protocol is designed to connect several specialised blockchains to a single unified network. It also allows multiple transactions to be processed in parallel through multiple chains, taking the network power to a different level. Oasis specialises in private and scalable decentralised finance software, while Bityuan is a provider of blockchain solutions to Chinese businesses.
Yifan He, CEO of Red Date Technology and executive director of the BSN Development Association, reportedly said that the Bityuan framework is becoming increasingly popular in China, stating “I am seeing commercial use cases built on the Bityuan framework are surging in China recently. I believe with this integration BSN will get developers around the world to be excited about building dapps that are enterprise-based and commercial oriented.”
The latest blockchain addition represents the third batch of blockchain protocols supported by the BSN network. Piloted in 2019, the BSN rolled out its first set of blockchains including Ethereum and EOS in August 2020, with other networks like Algorand coming as part of the second batch.
Themerging of new blockchain protocols allow global developers to access a certain network through the BSN’s global public city nodes and portals. In order to deploy and manage their own permissioned chains on the BSN International, developers should create an account on the official website.
