Celer Network to Integrate Scalability Solution to the DFINITY Blockchain
Two leading technology firms, Celer and DFINITY, have announced a strategic partnership whose mission is to enhance the scalability and promote the mass adoption of DApps. The agreement stipulates that Celer will integrate their off-chain scaling solution to the DFINITY, a decentralized cloud computing platform that is based on distributed ledger technology. Celer is a trustless, private and internet-scale scalability solution for blockchain-driven platforms.
As of now, Celer has already started working on this project after being granted access through the SDK of the DFINITY blockchain. Regarding this, Celer has successfully complemented the deployment of the first version of cChannel on the DFINITY platform using the SDK. This makes Celer the pioneering service to incorporate an off-chain scaling solution to the DFINITY network.
DFINITY is a next-gen public blockchain platform that leverages the decentralization functionality of blockchains to provide cloud computing services to individual and institutional clients. The network security mechanism is founded on complex mathematical algorithms and data structures, making it impenetrable and therefore unexposed to external breaches. Also, this platform relies on a WebAssembly-based virtual machine to support developers and facilitates its use. Since this framework is a future industry standard, DFINITY boats of unmatched performance levels, efficiency and security.
According to Timo Hanke, the Chief Engineer at DFINITY, Celer will enhance the scalability of their platform by ingraining the capabilities of layer-2 scaling solutions. Timo specifically highlighted Celer’s flexible generalized state channels and its cutting-edge state routing as the most outstanding features. Hanke concluded by expressing confidence that the two companies will combine to develop DApps that are useful as well as user-friendly.
The Celer Network will integrate its generalized state channel and side-chain solution (cChannel) and state routing protocol (cRoute) onto the DFINITY blockchain to enhance the latter’s scalability. To facilitate the easy access to the scaling solution, Celer Network will also incorporate its proprietary cOS to the DFINITY platform. Speaking on this matter, Mo Dong, the founder of Celer, stated that working with DFINITY is significantly simpler thanks to the novel WebAssembly-based virtual machine. He lauded the DFINITY platform for its cross-platform interoperability, data security and transaction efficiency.
