We are delighted to announce that Marlin has entered into a strategic partnership with Blockcloud (BLOC). The partnership is built out of a shared vision of a decentralized future with better connectivity.
Marlin provides enterprise-grade network infrastructure to the decentralized ecosystem while Blockcloud’s service-centric networking approach fills an important gap in the TCP/IP stack required for access to Internet data in mobile environments. The complementary initiatives lead to several collaboration opportunities in the technical, marketing and business development front.
Blockcloud recently completed a very successful IEO as the first blockchain project to be launched on OK Jumpstart. As a result, it attracted immense popularity and attention. Moreover, Blockcloud has received investment from more than 120 well-known institutional investors in more than 20 countries/regions.
On the eve of this harmonious partnership, Blockcloud’s CEO Dr Ming commented:
Blockcloud and Marlin both focus on the research and development of Internet infrastructure which has a bright future. Through this cooperation in technology, community and resource integration, we can promote the blockchain ecosystem, building and bringing a better surfing experience for global users.
Marlin’s CEO Siddhartha agrees:
Blockcloud’s novel CoDAG based consensus algorithm is ripe to leverage network layer scaling provided by the Marlin Protocol. Now, not only will consumers and producers be able to discover, buy and sell data on the Blockcloud marketplace, but will also be able to do so without any performance hits in receiving critical data from smart devices compared to centralized services, thanks to Blockcloud consensus algorithm’s fast processing and Marlin’s low latency relay.
Blockcloud is an extension of the existing Internet and is the underlying technology of the Internet that can upgrade and transform the current Internet. It combines the advantages of blockchain and Future Internet technology to build an underlying network protocol in the form of “building blocks”, providing continuous connectivity support for dynamic networks, and supporting upper-layer applications more securely and efficiently. It has received investments from 28 countries/regions worldwide including Genesis Capital, Icodrops, Signum, OK Blockchain Capital, GBIC etc.
