Conflux, a public blockchain system combining its unique and advanced algorithm with a novel Tree Graph (TG) structure, announced today a partnership with bloXroute Labs, creators of the first Layer-0 blockchain scalability solution.
To satisfy Conflux’s need to sustainably expand their decentralized network, Conflux and bloXroute will collaborate to optimize Conflux’s network layer. Conflux’s consensus layer will be integrated through a customized interface with bloXroute’s Blockchain Distribution Network (BDN), a strong network infrastructure that increases block propagation and node synchronization speeds.
“We’ve had very productive discussions with the bloXroute team. bloXroute can help improve communication efficiency among blockchain nodes and solve the on-chain network propagation bottleneck. Through our partnership, we hope Confluxand bloXroute can both reach our full potential and drive worldwide blockchain adoption.”
– Dr. Wu Ming, Conflux Co-Founder and CTO
bloXroute Labs is a Chicago-based venture-backed technology startup founded by crypto researchers and software veterans from Northwestern University. bloXroute has developed a Blockchain Distribution Network (BDN), otherwise known as a “CDN or Akamai for blockchains” that scales blockchains by propagating blocks faster.
To achieve this advanced scalability, the BDN uses advanced networking techniques such as internal caching, encryption, and cut-through routing. The BDN helps blockchains achieve better performance, reduce operating costs, and attract more users.
The network requires no protocol changes or compromises to security or decentralization and operates underneath the blockchain at Layer 0, so it is compatible with Layer 1 and Layer 2 solutions and PoS, PoW, and hybrid frameworks.
“I’m impressed by Conflux’s innovative concept and distinguished development team. We were even pleased to learn our Layer-0 scalability solution was already included in their roadmap on day 1! We look forward to a long-term partnership and are excited about the opportunity to strengthen an already great project.”
