China’s blockchain-based Service Network (BSN), the country’s nationwide blockchain project, has just launched an official international website. Appearing on Aug. 10, the new English-language BSN website aims to help bring global developers to the project. The CEO of Red Date Technology, a local private company and a founding member of the BSN, He Yifan told the crypto news outlet Cointelegraph that the new website allows developers to use BSN services and public chain services via the portal.
BSN features the live integration of six public chains.
As part of the new global effort, China’s blockchain-based Service Network BSN now features live integration of six public chains, including Ethereum, EOS, Nervos, Tezos, NEO, and IRISnet. This allows developers to build decentralized applications and run nodes through the data storage and bandwidth at overseas BSN data centers. According to the report, the BSN project is planning to launch the “Interchain Communication Hub” via IRITA interchain service hub and decentralized network Chainlink in October 2020. The new international website features a number of major global tech and blockchain firms as BSN partners, including Google and Amazon Web Services.
