Blockmason Weekly Update: 2019-03-01

📰 Welcome to the Blockmason Weekly Update!

Hello, Blockmason community! Another week is upon us, which means it’s time for another Weekly Update.

In this edition of the Weekly Update, TRON Blockchain support in Blockmason Link and how Link innovates enterprise app development.

Are you ready? Let’s get started!


Link Development Update

Does it feel like February went by very quickly? Not only did we make some significant progress in moving Link forward to a general beta / “freemium” release, but we also announced the addition of TRON blockchain support to the development roadmap. TRON has become very popular with developers and users alike, with TRON-based DApps showing more daily active users than Ethereum-based DApps. We’re excited to make building apps on TRON easier starting later this year.

Let’s take a look at the progress we’ve made over the past week.

The majority of development time this week was spent in bug fixes and cleanup of our v1.10.0 and v1.10.1 releases. We also did two dependency upgrades to ensure the Link API back-end is working with the latest software releases.

This week saw a couple of smaller updates to the Link front-end. First, all dependencies were updated to their latest versions and bug testing was performed to ensure that these updates didn’t cause any issues. Our development team also worked on redesigning the API monitoring and management dashboard.

Blockmason’s Link Innovates How Enterprise App Developers Interact with Smart Contracts and Programatic Blockchains Including Ethereum and TRON

Developers and engineers at enterprise-scale companies can accelerate blockchain-based app development while reducing costs and resource use

Blockmason, a leading developer of foundational, base-layer blockchain technologies, today shared how Link, their new project, is innovating smart contract and blockchain use in the enterprise. Blockmason’s Link is a new blockchain infrastructure-as-a-service that allows enterprise software developers to use smart contracts and programmatic blockchains like Ethereum, TRON, and others in their applications without requiring any blockchain experience. Using Link, a developer can create classic, conventional web-based APIs for any smart contract written on a programmatic blockchain. At the heart of Link is BLINK, the utility token which provides Link users with API transaction capacity.
