The Chinese government-backed blockchain project Blockchain Service Network has announced the integration of the Tezo blockchain into its international portal. According to the official announcement on September 24, Tezos has been selected as “one of the first blockchain groups” to be included in BSN International, a global platform that provides access to public network services at BSN.
Through the integration, developers around the world can now access the Tezos protocol using BSN global public points and gateways. According to BSN, there are three global public city nodes that have been merged with the Tezo blockchain on both the main and test network. BSN’s global public city nodes currently include locations in Hong Kong, California and Paris, according to the announcement.
In order to publish and manage authorized networks on BSN International, developers must create an account on the official website. By accessing Unauthorized Services, developers can create their own projects on the Tezos mainnet or testnet. As announced by BSN, you can access all Tezos APIs in a similar manner in BSN while maintaining the original data format.
Executives at Tezo and BSN did not immediately respond to Cointelegraph’s request for comment on the development. This article will be updated pending new information.
As reported, BSN plans to merge up to 40 shared blockchains by June 2021. Tezos is one of the first groups of six blockchains including NEO, Nervos, Cosmos’s IRISnet, Ethereum, and EOS. BSN also plans to merge three more networks at Algorand, ShareRing and Solana as a second part.
The Chinese BSN network was tested in October 2019 and is a government-sponsored blockchain initiative that was originally created to help small and medium-sized businesses create and distribute blockchain applications on licensed networks. The program was officially launched in April 2020 for global commercial use, and BSN International was launched in August.
