As Bitcoin technology in the central part, Blockchain (block chain) in 2015, when the once very popular. Plainly speaking, the so-called Blockchain is a distributed Bitcoin books, it can record all transactions.
Microsoft today released a new project & mdash; & mdash; Bletchley, meaning can be more easily and quickly using the Black & Blockchain in all walks of life so that small partners to interconnection, the formation of a large decentralized data alliance.
As the core technology is to Blockchain & ldquo; chain & rdquo; together, the number of users or the company is crucial for the development of the product, so Microsoft have a time of release, through this new tool you want to help more people involved, to build a & ldquo; chain & rdquo; a large network.
So far, we have built a lot of Blockchain Union, such as the famous bank block chain alliance R3, distributed after the transaction ledger Union PTDL (Post-Trade Distributed Ledger Group), as well as Dubai global block Chain Council GBC (Dubai's Global Blockchain council) and the like. Marley Gray, director of business development and strategy for Microsoft said in a statement, now really need a tool to further promote Blockchain Union Construction work.
Gray said: & ldquo; Bletchley project is actually a vision, we want to pass to ordinary users, partners and major information platform is, Blockchain is an open, convenient service. & Rdquo;
Bletchley project will be open for many Blockchain agreement. For example, will support transaction-based & ldquo; unspent transaction output & rdquo; UTXO (Unspent Transaction Output) protocols, such as Hyperledger. Also supports account-based protocols, such as Ethereum. Meanwhile, in the follow-up process also will introduce support for other protocols.
Based on Microsoft's Azure cloud services
Gray said, Bletchley Bletchley Park project is named after the name, the purpose is to commemorate the year of World War II when the famous mathematician and father of computer Turing and his team together in Germany and France where deciphered telegram password, which will effectively support the Allies win the final victory. They want to Bletchley as a project-based Azure cloud service feedback system to help employees currently working on the Microsoft platform Blockchain service efficiency.
Since last November release, Tendermint and Augur other companies have written to Blockchain platform a lot of open source software tools to facilitate users to build a sandbox environment to test and validate features. But he had no official Microsoft.
This time, Microsoft plans to Blockchain platform is built through the project into an open, modular & ldquo; chain & rdquo; network, the network via a secret key authentication to ensure security, to quickly browse Bitcoin transactions, and only Union members are allowed to access. Gray said that these functions are Blockchain first users strong demand.
Today released the white paper, Gray describes his mouth & ldquo; enterprises Blockchain Alliance node & rdquo;: & ldquo; Each node is a modular framework, Bletchley project will allow Alliance members to pick the best components to build distributed type of application, without the need to care about the low-level implementation details. & Rdquo;
Middleware and Cryptlets
As part of the Bletchley project release, Microsoft also introduced two new concepts Blockchain Platform: Middleware and Cryptlets.
& Ldquo; Middleware will make Blockchain to provide core services in the cloud, just like we usually do authentication and other ordinary operations, in addition can also provide some of the data processing of intelligent services, such as logical analysis, and machine learning. & Rdquo; Gray wrote in the White Paper.
Middleware is designed to help users take full advantage of Blockchain ultra-high security and transaction history can not be changed curing properties. At the same time, also in accordance with the regulatory agencies and other institutions and departments in the form required, provide business intelligence reports.
Another component Cryptlets: When Blockchain users need additional transaction information, Cryptlets will work. For example, the date and time when you need to perform the contract.
& Ldquo; as Blockchain new foundation technologies, Cryptlets enable Microsoft Azure cloud service, interoperability and exchange Middleware ecosystem and customers between its technology more secure. & Rdquo; Gray wrote.
