BSN, dfuse and EOS Nation got together this week on Everything EOS to highlight the strengths and synergies of our latest trilateral partnership and how it will drive and enable large amounts of developers to build on the EOS Mainnet. While we highly recommend watching the entire episode, here’s a quick recap of the most important topics that were discussed.
BSN is a blockchain integrator that makes it easy for developers to quickly start building on blockchain at a very low cost. A $20 monthly subscription is all that’s required for a developer to gain access to all of the offered blockchains by BSN, which range from custom built private networks to public and permissionless networks such as EOS.
BSN is going to be attracting a lot of developers who are curious about building on blockchain and we want to make sure that those developers have an easy way to build and experiment on EOS. EOS Nation’s dfuse Community Edition will play a critical role by enabling developers to freely explore some of the advanced programming features that are available on dfuse. Developers will have only spent $20 up until this point, and can get a taste of the power and flexibility that building on EOS offers. Once they find product-market-fit and demand for their services grows beyond our capacity to service them for free through the EOS Nation dfuse Community Edition, we know that the highly competent and professional team at dfuse will be able to offer a world class enterprise service that is highly scalable and capable of satisfying the needs of even the most demanding applications.
As many of you know, dfuse is designed for large enterprises with heavy and uninterruptible data needs. Throughout the episode, Alexandre Bourget talked about the many products that dfuse has shipped in 2020 and how they can help developers build next generation distributed applications.
BSN also highlighted the examples of blockchain networks that run without a native token and instead, node operators are simply paid in fiat directly by the developers who need to create or access a certain type of blockchain. The system is built in a way that will see the amount of node providers increase following an increase in developer demand as those monthly fees are distributed to node providers. It’s a very flexible approach that focuses on offering the most low-cost and low-friction way to get people building on blockchain.
And finally, at the end of the episode Yves La Rose talked about some of the projects and products that EOS Nation has been working on in the last few months. Yves shared some news regarding how EOS Nation works with the Canadian government through universities to onboard new developers as part of our student development program, which we are currently looking to expand into China.
Yves also officially announced the upcoming release of EOS Nation’s new flashloan DeFi product. This public good is free to use and has been live and functional on the Mainnet for quite some time now. We’re now confident enough in its robustness to audit and MSIG the smart contracts and open up the flash loans to more users and volume. Stay tuned!
