ZUG, Switzerland–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, CasperLabs announced a partnership with China’s Blockchain-based Service Network (BSN). The Casper Network will be available to BSN’s global network of developers immediately upon Casper’s mainnet launch in Q1 2021.
Founded in Spring 2020 by Red Date Technology, BSN is an infrastructure initiative backed by the Chinese government to accelerate blockchain adoption in China and beyond. The BSN is a platform that provides developers with easy onboarding into public and private blockchains they can use to build applications with reduced operational costs, improved flexibility, and better regulatory oversight. Since its launch, the BSN has deployed more than 120 public city nodes across China, serving as data centers dedicated to running and processing transactions on the blockchain networks supported by BSN. The vision of the BSN is to build a “Digital Silk Road”, establishing China as a major player in the global evolution of Web3, and building more efficient communication and coordination with the West.
“We are happy to be working with CasperLabs to provide developers with the best protocol for building decentralized applications. We invite Casper to join our operations in China.”
– Yifan He, CEO, Red Date Technology and Director, BSN
The partnership between CasperLabs and BSN will cement the role of Casper in the world’s decentralized global infrastructure, providing enterprises and developers alike with access to the powerful capabilities of the public network. The integration will bring Casper’s unique combination of scalability, security and decentralization to the BSN ecosystem.
“Casper is the first fully decentralized, scalable and highly secure proof-of-stake blockchain. The CasperLabs team is committed to providing professional services and support to the growing number of enterprise organizations that are gravitating to blockchain technology to unlock value from existing assets, like contracts. Via our close partnership with BSN, we look forward to helping promote the continued adoption of this important public technology across global markets.”
