Bellevue, WA, August 1st, 2019 - Dragonchain, a blockchain technology company, today released their core blockchain platform under an open source license. With this release, the Dragon company will be able to drive adoption among enterprises and developers looking to build their own blockchain based applications. The open source code gives both enterprises and developers access to blockchain innovations, along with resources to continue innovating with us by contributing code. Dragonchain believes this is a necessary step to further drive adoption and understanding of blockchain technology around the world.
“Releasing the source code to the public was always part of our plan. With this release, we believe the potential impact can be maximized by the blockchain community, offering opportunities for developers and driving blockchain adoption”
Joe Roets, Founder and CEO of Dragonchain
Dragonchain is a Blockchain as a Service company. It offers flexibility to developers looking to build their own blockchain applications in containerized smart contracts. The public/private hybrid architecture enables a business to maintain control over sensitive business logic. At the same time its patented + technology enables interoperability with other blockchains such as a private Ethereum network, and provides the freedom to selectively expose data on public blockchains.
The blockchain platform was originally created from scratch by Joe Roets, founder and CEO of Dragonchain. It all began inside The Walt Disney Company in 2014, where the project was internally known as the “Disney Private Blockchain Platform”. The Walt Disney Company approved the release of the original code in 2016, demonstrating that it actively contributes robust code to the world and allows any developer to explore more use cases. This still fits perfectly with the philosophy and values of the Dragon company. By open sourcing the core platform today, contributors are able to dedicate their talents and time to a technology many believe will change the world for the better; blockchain.
Dragonchain will soon launch various bounty programs to drive adoption including security, bug, demo, and interchain bounties. With demo bounties developers will be able to earn rewards for creating demos and proof of concepts. The Interchain bounties incentivize other blockchain platforms and developers to build bridges of interoperability between Dragonchain and other blockchains. Back at The Walt Disney Company, Dragonchain was the first to prove interoperability with Bitcoin. Today, Interchain currently exists for Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Private Ethereum, NEO, and others, with more to come.
“As a developer, I understand the importance and value of an open source project. We are excited about this big step and can’t wait to let people see how easy and fast they can build powerful blockchain solutions on Dragonchain.”
Dean Shelton, Director of Engineering at Dragonchain
