The Blockchain-based Service Network has caught the attention of developers from corporations and individual ones.
Particularly, over 2,000 members have joined the beta phase since its launch in October last year, building applications to help with public welfare charity, item traceability, and electronic invoices.
Shan Zhiguang – Blockchain Service Network Development Alliance chairman – revealed that there are at the moment 128 public nodes across the system, with 76 are China-based, 44 are being built, and the last 8 are located overseas, spanning throughout 6 continents.
