About BLOCKPOOL's Technology


Why Blockchain?

The blockchain has a problem: bloat. Eventually this will become far more of a problem as developers try to force every little bit into the chain that they can, causing forks and inner community fights over block sizes.

Adding legacy software into the mix would just compound the issue. Not all data is required to be immutably implanted into the chain forever. Quite the opposite in fact. With the BLOCKPOOL Blockchain, we utilize a proven Delegated Proof of Stake consensus mechanism. This enables us to provide different kinds of chains to our customers.

Not all organisations want to have their business plastered all over the blockchain for everybody to see. In fact most organizations want their information to remain completely private. While utilizing the myriad of features the blockchain provides, such as smart contracts, permanent data retention, and redundancy for core datasets. Currently many organizations are using SQL databases for their customer data retention. This can be an insecure, outdated method.

The Blockchain is the perfect solution.

The BLOCKPOOL Masterchain will be provided Open Source and with full BAPPS functionality. In cases where an organisation would benefit from a public chain, the BLOCKPOOL Masterchain will be utilized by creating sidechains and BLOCKPOOL Platform plugins to facilitate communication with existing legacy systems.

In many cases organizations and corporations in various different sectors require private or pseduo-private chains. Utilizing side chain technology an organization or corporation is able to maintain their own private sidechain, all while maintaining a certain control over the pseudo-private masterchain. This is given that all participating organizations agree to shared control over the masterchain.

This methodology is perfect for industries where cross organization communication is essential while private organizations retain complete control over their own private information. The pseudo-private masterchain will also provide a level of interorganisational trust that didnít exist with previous centralized systems.

Our blockchain is built in the same fashion as our platform, modular. Object oriented programming allows for better distribution of resources by calling on different mini programs instead of one massive piece of hardware intensive software. Currently most blockchain solutions are all or nothing. They are unable to communicate with legacy systems and may remain that way. A blockchain should never be directly connected to any legacy corporate system unless used for finance, and even then there are cases where data simply shouldnít be placed in the blockchain to begin with. Our SaaS solution ensures only necessary data is immutably implanted into the blockchain, ensuring ease of maintenance, security, speed and stability
