On July 29, at the blockchain sub-forum of the 2022 Open Atom Global Open Source Summit, Baidu Superchain and its partners jointly established the XuperCore open source working group, which will help more professional developers and enterprises make good use of the blockchain and prosper the blockchain Open source ecology.
At present, blockchain manufacturers are exploring the frontiers of Web3.0 such as NFT and digital collections, and promoting the maturity of business models. The blockchain sub-forum, hosted by Baidu and co-organized by China Unicom, Qulian, and Treemap Research Institute, aims to set a benchmark for the development of the blockchain industry and jointly explore the latest development direction of the blockchain in the Web3.0 era.
Xiao Wei, General Manager of Baidu Blockchain, believes that Web 3.0 brings opportunities for sustainable development of the blockchain for at least 10 years. Web3.0 applications such as NFT, digital collections, and Metaverse continue to be popular, making blockchain a necessity for the entire industry and the infrastructure of the next-generation value Internet.
“Blockchain relies on open source to survive. Only open code can guarantee security, transparency, openness, traceability, and non-tampering capabilities,” Xiao Wei said.
Based on the concept of open source and openness, Baidu has created a free super chain operation platform, through which you can customize and manage your own chain, and the user experience is no less than that of paid products on the market. The platform can provide multi-terminal intercommunication and multi-chain switching chain management services for developers and enterprises that lack technology and capital accumulation, and jointly build an ecological community, which will promote the large-scale application of blockchain technology in the industry.
“Baidu Super Chain is not a chain. Its core is called XuperCore, which can help enterprises and developers define the chain they need, which is more flexible and efficient.” Xiao Wei further explained.
It is reported that Baidu superchain XuperChain donated XuperCore, the foundation of the entire operating system, to the Open Atom Foundation as early as 2020, providing professional developers and enterprises with convenient opportunities to apply blockchain technology. XuperCore has deep technology and industrial accumulation behind it: it has 600+ blockchain core technology patents, the single-chain performance is as high as 87,000 TPS, and it has launched 30+ full-scenario, all-industry, and all-field solutions.
Under the upsurge of Web3.0, the demand for blockchain has penetrated from the technology circle to the industry circle. “In the future, putting commodity data and social data into the blockchain can realize the interconnection of the Metaverse, which is an inevitable trend in the development of the industry.” Xiao Wei said, “We hope to make NFT into a Web3.0 commodity, It can be displayed and used in every metaverse, which will transform NFT from a financial attribute to a commodity attribute, and can create huge social value.”
Up to now, the number of Baidu digital collection users has exceeded one million, and the cumulative number of registered collections on the chain has reached several million. Its release of the world’s first digital collection of lunar soil and the digital collection of the “Zodiac” series by art master Huang Yongyu have received good market response.
