Singularity Financial Hong Kong August 11, 2020 – Blockchain-Based Service Network (BSN), a Chinese state-sanctioned blockchain infrastructure project, launched its English-language website for international decentralized applications (dapp) developers on Monday.

The website introduces the BSN as “a one-stop shop for DApp developers to deploy and manage any permissioned or permissionless blockchain applications.” “We have built entire operating environments and shared nodes on BSN’s public city nodes (PCN) around the world. Developers only need to choose which PCN to connect and upload smart contracts. We will do everything else for you!”

Developers are now able to build dapps and run nodes on either permissioned blockchains, which include Hyperledger Fabric and FISCO-BCOS, patented by digital banking company Tencent’s WeBank; or major public chains through the global version of the network. There are six major public chains available on the network now: Ethereum, EOS, Tezos, NEO, Nervos and Cosmos’ IrisNet.

The cross-chain feature is enabled by BSN’s Interchain Services contributed by Cosmos’ IrisNet and Chainlink.

The network claims developers will have an easier user experience through its simplified and standardized development tools, which cost a fraction of what similar internet services from traditional cloud companies would.

According to the website, the BSN is “a cross-cloud, cross-portal, and cross-framework global public infrastructure network used to deploy and operate all types of blockchain distributed applications (DApps).”

It aims to “solve the high-cost problem of DApp deployment and maintenance; to enable the easy and convenient interoperability of all DApps; and to provide more security methods and easier accesses to developers.”
