We are pleased to announce that Blockmason, a developer of foundational, base-layer blockchain technologies, has announced the addition of GoChain public blockchain support.

Developers of web, mobile and other decentralized applications (“DApps”) that interact with smart contracts on the GoChain blockchain will be able to use Blockmason’s Link. Link is a managed, decentralized, functions-as-a-service (FaaS) platform that creates conventional web APIs for developers interacting with blockchains.

Not only does Link aim to accelerate development and reduce overhead and costs, but smart contracts that are accessible through conventional web APIs increase interoperability for distributed applications and provide a critical component in the development of blockchain solutions that are compatible with legacy infrastructure.


How Blockmason Link Works with GoChain

Blockchain development introduces countless integration hurdles to add blockchain tech to existing systems. With Link, developers and users alike can interact with smart contracts like any other web API.

“GoChain has always pushed to make developers’ lives easier when building our decentralized future. The Link system aims to offer developers even more options and tooling. We’re extremely excited to see what they come up with for all of our community and enterprise partners.” — Travis Reeder

There are no “gas” cryptocurrencies to acquire, browser plugins to install or other unnecessary hurdles. There’s also no servers or web infrastructure to maintain or monitor. A developer simply adds the smart contracts they want to use in their app to Link. Once added, they can read from and write to these smart contracts just like any other API.

GoChain will be working closely with the Blockmason Link team to provide GoChain support for development teams building applications with Link.

“Adding GoChain support is an important step in the Link development roadmap,” said Michael Chin, CEO of Blockmason, continuing that “with this milestone, we can increase public blockchain performance and offer more options to blockchain developers.”
