Dragonchain Joins BPSAA as New Alliance Member
By: BPSAA Foundation
Known initially as the Disney Private Blockchain Platform, Dragonchain was incubated at Disney's Seattle offices from 2014-2015. The code was publicly released as open source in 2016 and launched as an ICO in 2017. Dragonchain offers Blockchain as a Service (BaaS) prioritizing security, scalability and aims to provide a frictionless transition for companies entering the blockchain industry. Designed by a team of seasoned entrepreneurs and skilled developers, Dragonchain enables businesses to build and deploy their own blockchains within minutes. More importantly, clients do not have to change their existing software infrastructure.
An intentional design of Dragonchain is to provide the seamless integration into existing business workflows. To achieve a flexible blockchain solution, core goals of Dragonchain include:
● Ease of integration with existing systems
● Ease of development for traditional engineers and programmers unfamiliar with blockchain, distributed systems, and cryptography via containerized smart contracts
● Modular architecture (flexible and expandable for unforeseen applications)
● Protection of private business data by default
● Currency agnostic (multi currency support)
The Dragonchain ecosystem is comprised of 3 pillars: the Blockchain, the Academy and the Foundation. The Academy provides a training framework that allows students to develop skills based on their needs and level of experience. The Dragonchain Foundation, a non-profit corporation, represents the ownership, responsibility, and maintenance of the Dragonchain open source code. The Foundation has expanded its role to include focus on education, advocacy, and adoption in the blockchain space, with emphasis on imparting the integral role Dragonchain plays toward these aims.
The BPSAA is, at its core, a think tank. The founding members, Pirate Chain, Turtle Network, Sentinel and Ether-1 established the alliance based on a shared desire to collaboratively improve the blockchain ecosystem. Dragonchain joins the cadre of new members including Ergo, Komodo and Burstcoin. In addition to the increased brain trust, there are numerous mutual benefits with Dragonchain's addition. First, Dragonchain has a strong interest in privacy and interoperability, both key values to the BPSAA. Second, Dragonchain's experience in enterprise solutions will be greatly beneficial to all members of the alliance. As an added benefit, the combined social media reach of all BPSAA members totals 317,000 with their addition, strengthening the united voice of the BPSAA.
