Blockmason’s Link is a new blockchain infrastructure-as-a-service that allows blockchain-based developers to use programmatic blockchains in their applications without requiring any blockchain experience. With Link, developers can create applications that interact with smart contracts and blockchains like any other web or mobile API. There are no cryptocurrencies to acquire, browser plugins to install or servers to maintain or monitor. A developer simply adds their smart contracts to Link and uses the resulting APIs in their game or app. At the heart of Link is BLINK, the utility token which provides Link users with API transaction capacity.
HYCON is a digital asset built on top of Infinity, launched with the goal of providing a fast, secure, scalable and user-centric blockchain ecosystem ready for mass adoption. Using a Directed Acyclic Graph (“DAG”) structure, it can publish several blocks simultaneously with the ability to resolve conflicting transactions and reject double-spends through the SPECTRE consensus algorithm. This makes HYCON a next-generation blockchain usable in the real economy.
