Huobi Group announced the public testnet launch of Huobi Chain, an open-source public blockchain designed for providing a global, blockchain-based, digital asset financial infrastructure. The high-performance decentralized finance (DeFi) chain is now live for beta testing. Created in partnership with technical development partner Nervos, Huobi Chain provides a regulator-friendly blockchain framework for financial organizations to deploy DeFi services and applications, including their own blockchains, tokenized assets, payments, and identity verification, lending services, decentralized exchanges, and more.
“DeFi has become one of the most promising applications of blockchain technology but its future requires both sides—regulators and enterprises—to work together to establish the standards and guidelines of the new decentralized economy,” said Ciara Sun, VP of Global Business at Huobi Group. “With Huobi Chain, we want to provide the decentralized framework that facilitates industry-wide collaboration, which is critical to the widespread adoption of DeFi.”
To encourage increased collaboration between regulatory agencies and the private financial sector, Huobi Chain adopts a flexible governance model based on a variation of the Delegated Proof-of-Stake (DPoS) consensus algorithm. This flexible design enables Huobi Chain to support both regulators and enterprises on the blockchain through unique features like regulatory nodes, which allow regulators to contribute to the network as validators.
Industry-standard identity protocols like Know Your Customer (KYC) verification ensures the network meets Anti-Money Laundering (AML) requirements. Huobi Chain also utilizes a Decentralized Identifier (DID) system to provide verifiable, decentralized digital identities on its network, making cross-border compliance and regulation more easily achievable at scale.
Huobi Chain was purpose-built for the financial services industry and is fully open-source to provide the flexibility needed for open financial markets. Its customizable DeFi service protocol allows users and third-party developers to custom-build financial applications to their specific needs and use cases.
Huobi Chain’s high-performance architecture is designed to support high-volume transactions critical to the financial services industry. Features like cross-chain interoperability, multi-asset support, smart contract capabilities, and multi-and-sidechain architectures also provide banks and financial institutions with a highly flexible, globally scalable framework.
The chain’s proprietary asset management capabilities will provide support for a wide variety of on-chain and cross-chain asset management services across popular digital assets like BTC and ETH, as well as Huobi-launched assets like HT, HBTC, and HUSD.
As the world’s first public blockchain with on-chain governance and regulatory framework, Huobi Chain offers innovative features that push the boundaries of blockchain.
The platform covers e entire enterprise technology space- including emerging technologies like RPA, AI, cloud, automation, and the entire gamut of digital transformation tools, strategies and management decisions.
