Blockcloud is a blockchain-based advanced TCP/IP that improves and upgrades the existing Internet. Combining the advantages of blockchain and Future Internet technology, it reconstructs the technology layers below where current blockchain networks and Internet applications operate. Blockcloud serves as the “building block” to provide constant connectivity for dynamic networks. It will provide better mobility, credibility, incentives, security, fairness, and scalability to upper-layer applications, which can be applied to various scenarios such as dynamic network (such as high-speed railway, aircraft, Internet of Vehicles), content distribution network, edge computing, etc. By combining blockchain technology, it can stimulate edge nodes to share resources, effectively reduce network cost and improve network performance.
Co-founder of Blockcloud - Zhongxing Ming has a visiting scholar to Princeton University, a postdoctoral at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, a Ph.D. at Tsinghua University. He is also a member of Blockchain Special Committee of China Computer Federation. Zhongxing Ming is rated as Shenzhen High-level Overseas Expert and co-founded a startup company with $6.5 million raised. He has years of experience in Future Internet, IoT and Blockchain technology with 13 publications on top conferences and journals.
Core members of the Blockcloud come from top universities and enterprises worldwide, such as Princeton University, UC Berkeley, Tsinghua University, University of Tokyo, Peking University. Over 50% of the core team members holds a Ph.D. with over 50 publications on top conferences and journals and over 20 related patents.
Blockcloud has the advisory board of world’s top scientists, including the former Obama White House economist Hoan Soo Lee as the chief economist. The technical advisory board includes 18 top scholars besides Fred Baker, one of Internet pioneers of the world, 2 IEEE Fellows and 5 National Distinguished Scientists.
Combination of SCN (Service-centric networking) and blockchain makes the core technology of Blockcloud, and the team founders have been researching and working in these two areas for nearly a decade. In addition, the team has published several related high-level research results, which is at the leading level in the industry. The research team has established deep relationship with top Chinese enterprises and institutes, such as Huawei, China Academy of Railway Sciences, China Telecom and China Mobile. Through the in-depth business relationship, team aims at improving the performance and stability of network platforms by the unremitting effort in R&D. Besides, team tends to capture the first-mover advantage in market and make use of network platforms’ power law by business practices.
At present, we have established cooperation with a variety of listed enterprise, and the products we jointly developed have entered the testing stage.
