Chinese Internet giant Baidu has published a white paper project on the development of blockchain-system Super Chain.
The document presents the concept of commercializing cloud-based blockchain platform Baidu and six applications based on Super Chain: Totem, Degree Universe, Baidu Association, Treasure Chest, Online Encyclopedia and Hubert.
According to the white paper, network Super Chain more efficient than traditional baccani, due to the intensive use of computing equipment. The network nodes use Super Chain multi-core parallel computing to maximize capacity utilization of the CPU and increase throughput, said the company in the document.
Blockchain system Baidu supports “parallel lateral network”. The root blockchain Super Chain runs parallel to the chains and work the entire system, supporting the exchange of data between networks.
Super Chain works on the basis of the so-called “plug-in consensus mechanism,” which allows different parallel networks to choose proper algorithm of consensus.
As stated in the document, Baidu plans to focus on the use of new technologies in the areas of food safety, quality control, retail, Finance, supply chains, intellectual property, tourism and social networking.
Recall that in January, Baidu launched open platform of the «blockchain as a service» (Blockchain-as-a-service, BaaS) — Baidu Trust. Later, the company began to use the blockchain to record changes that users make to the materials in
