[Binance Block 10 x Anthurine]: The Story of Multi-chain Infrastructure Just Begins
At 8 pm on June 8th, Anthurine, the CMO of QuarkChain, founding partner of QuarkChain, conducted live streaming on in the Binance community and shared her opinions about the challenges and opportunities of blockchain regarding ‘New Infrastructure’ in China. Anthurine graduated from Johns Hopkins University. Prior to founding QuarkChain, she spent two years working in finance on Wall Street and 6 years in the tech industry in Silicon Valley. The mission of QuarkChain is to enable everyone to use blockchain technology anytime and anywhere.
As for the new infrastructure, she believed that unlike the traditional airport or railway construction, the new infrastructure now is more related to digital services. The new infrastructure needs the following underlying architecture: 1. Each chain enables customization to meet different situations through multi-chain infrastructure (heterogenous sharding); 2. Cross-chain transactions need to be supported between each chain.
Anthurine also said that there are several aspects that blockchain can empower enterprise: 1. Ensure that the data transmission itself is authentic; 2. Ensure that data can be transferred between different industries in a safe way.
Anthurine introduced the essence of blockchain technology comes from the arrangement and combination of the following four components：
- Consensus (POW, POS, DPOS, PBFT),
- Transaction model (BTC transaction model, different virtual machine, privacy transaction model),
- Ledger model (UTXO, Account model), and
- Token economics.
The public chain itself is fixed and not flexible, but through a combination of the following four components, a new public chain can be generated. At this time, not only a dapp can be built on the chain, but also a chain can be generated easily. In multi-chain infrastructure, a new single chain can be added by demand.
There is a trend in the blockchain space: consortium blockchain and public chains complement each other. In the future, enterprise-level applications would require a comprehensive infrastructure solution to connect consortium blockchain and public chains to satisfy all the requirements. QuarkChain is redefining the problem from the infrastructure perspective and has invented its proprietary Boson consensus framework which can be applied onto both consortium blockchain and public chains. As such, this framework fits in squarely as a comprehensive solution for both consortium blockchain and public chains.
