The Blockchain 3.0 (the latest incarnation of the blockchain technology) requires a blockchain infrastructure layer computing chip and hardware equipment. However, the blockchain ecosystem, is still in the dilemma of failure, if it emphasizes, on both, the development of chip R&D and system design capabilities. To boost performance in the blockchain industry, WHALECHAIN TECHNOLOGY INC. has dedicated its efforts to the R&D of core computing capability, and technology development of ASIC and hardware equipment.
According to Kyle Yan, CEO of WHALECHAIN TECHNOLOGY, the semiconductor is the basic foundation for hardware, which in turn is the solution for blockchain. The company previews the applications of blockchain integrated with IoT, which are growing explosively, at the hardware layer. The company, with a decade of experience in semiconductor and ICT industry, established a core team in Oct. 2017, whose sole purpose was to create diversified blockchain software/hardware integration applications starting from the bottom-most layer of the ecosystem. Starting with chip design, it will be further expanded to the network layer and applications in order to create a complete blockchain ecosystem.
