Xunlei Launches New Products to Build a Blockchain Ecosystem
The StellarCloud is a shared cloud computing platform which will expand Xunlei’s existing Content Delivery Network (CDN) services to Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). It also offers edge computing, function computing and shared CDN (SCDN) solutions. The StellarCloud is created to help companies in their transition to cloud, including content delivery, live streaming, data storage and artificial intelligence (AI). During the ceremony,
The ThunderChain is a high-performance blockchain infrastructure that can concurrently process over a million transactions per second (TPS). Now with the ThunderChain Open Platform, third-party developers and companies, especially start-ups, can easily build, migrate and manage decentralized applications (DApps) with low operating costs.
The debut of the StellarCloud and the ThunderChain Open Platform, in addition to Xunlei’s blockchain-based personal cloud device OneThing Cloud, will create a Blockchain 3.0 ecosystem participated by millions of users, developers and companies. Within the ecosystem, OneThing Cloud users can voluntarily share their idle computing resources to receive LinkToken as a proof of contribution. LinkToken can be used to exchange for products or services that companies develop with the ThunderChain Open Platform or the StellarCloud. Enterprise users can exchange LinkToken for the idle computing resources contributed by OneThing Cloud users. The closed-loop ecosystem demonstrates two main advantages. First, individual users can be encouraged to share their redundant resources with enterprises with a high level of trust. Second, enterprise users will save their operating costs and create applications and services that cater to the end users’ practical needs.
