SimpleChain Foundation Council Election: Candidate AMA Session 1

On January 4, 2019, SimpleChain mainnet was officially launched. In 2019, we witnessed the rapid expansion of the SimpleChain community, as well as the implementation of SimpleChain applications in various fields. In 2020, during the second year of the SimpleChain Foundation’s operation, through the election to add new Council members, we hope that more SimpleChain enthusiasts will join the Foundation, and use their knowledge, talents and resources to facilitate the Foundation, inspire the community, and advance SimpleChain technology promotion, application implementation, community development and ecosystem construction.

A total of 18 candidates are made up of elites from local industries, overseas scholars as well as experts of communications technology, digital assets, and big data. 9 candidates with the most votes will become new Council members of the SimpleChain Foundation. We’re holding a series of AMAs with candidates to meet with the community and share their understanding of the industry and their plans and visions for the future of SimpleChain. In the first session, we invited Song Xue (founder of DxPool) and Dachao Tian (founder Blocknology Capital, initiated Global Blockchain Fund Alliance).

About SimpleChain

The mission of SimpleChain is to simplify the blockchain for business.

SimpleChain is a PoW main chain with flexible sub-chains. Different sub-chains can adopt different kinds of consensus and block data structure as needed, to enable a variety of applications and use cases on blockchain. Sharding is also implemented to improve performance. This double-layered structure of one main chain and multiple sub-chains can fuel various applications while ensuring the consistency of the network.

Built on VeraxChain, SimpleChain’s first sub-chain, Baoquan.com provides record keeping services which serves to keep records of online data and authenticate electronic evidence. In June 2018, Hangzhou Internet Court of China judged a case of copyright dispute based on data stored on Baoquan.com. For the first time in China, the legal effect of the electronic data stored on blockchain is recognized in the judicial system.
