DataCrypt Bitcoin Node Will be Available on Amazon by Com-Guarddotcom
The adoption of blockchain technologies by major outlets has been one of the most important developments to hit the community in recent years. As the crypto space continues to grow, the mass adoption of blockchain by institutional forces is a key facet of the effective innovation and development of blockchain tech all over the world.
The process of institutional adoption has been controversial, to say the least. For the revolutionary and anti-establishment original followers of cryptocurrency, use of blockchain technology by mainstream powers is a process that flies in the face of the libertarian roots of blockchain and decentralized ledger technology. But to others, the blockchain cannot survive in the long-term without the use of major current corporations. As the debate rages on, it seems that nothing will stop economic powerhouses in the traditional financial sector from jumping onto the blockchain and crypto bandwagon.
In the newest example of this trend, the DataCrypt Bitcoin Node Device will now be sold by the online retail and sales giant Amazon. According to a recent announcement, DataCrypt will be available to the estimated 310 million active users on Amazon.com. The company has in charge of the product, Com-Guard.com, Inc. has already expressed their excitement to continue the development process amid the huge release on Amazon.
Com-Guard.com, Inc. has been in the security business since around the conception of the internet. The organization has been responsible for the creation of security applications on the internet for years. Specifically, they worked with Linux and other major computer manufacturers to create technology to prevent the tampering of their systems by unauthorized parties.
Recently, the company also gained notoriety within the blockchain community with their announcement that they had configured their own Bitcoin Full Node, set to operate on the increasingly popular Bitcoin blockchain. The main use for such a node would be to allow someone to operate and implement a node on the Bitcoin network without the individual possessing expert knowledge in computer science.
The Amazon Product
At its core, the product being created by this security veteran company is a small, pocket-sized device that would functionally create a full Bitcoin node on the Bitcoin blockchain network. As they continue to develop the device, the hope is that it will allow inexperienced users to implement their own nodes on the blockchain, allowing them to effectively process and verify transactions and help the network to efficiently function and expand.
Its future listing on Amazon was mentioned during an announcement by the company. This is important for several reasons. For one, the very fact that Amazon is allowing the node to be sold on their platform seems to be a tacit embrace of cryptocurrency tech into the existing marketplace’s framework for sellers. Additionally, this will extend the reach of blockchain technology to an even greater number of potential consumers, many of which already possess the technical know-how (very little) required to implement their own Bitcoin node on the network using Com-Guard, Inc.’s patented device.
