Blockmason and Binance Announce BCPT is now available on the Binance Decentralized Exchange

In partnership with Binance, Blockmason is excited to announce that BCPT has now launched on Binance Chain, a blockchain software system developed by Binance and the community, and the forthcoming Binance Decentralized Exchange (DEX). Binance DEX is the decentralized exchange feature developed on top of the Binance Chain blockchain, offering low latency and high throughput with one-second block times and one-second confirmation finality. https://www.binance.org/en

Now that BCPT is available on Binance DEX, we can ensure that DApp developers and others who build future Credit Protocol-powered DApps that interact with Binance Chain will be able to obtain BCPT for their needs.

This also means that the migration of Binance held BCPT from ERC20 to BEP2 has completed. Binance users will now be able to withdraw BCPT to BEP2-compatible wallets. Note that ERC20 BCPT held in private wallets or on other exchanges will not be impacted.

Create a Decentralized Ownership App Using Blockmason Link

We have been working on putting together a series of tutorials for newcomers to Blockmason Link, and we are excited to share our latest tutorial today.

Link allows developers to use smart contracts and the power of blockchain in their web or mobile applications with very little to no prior blockchain experience. Link creates classic, conventional, web-based APIs for any smart contract written on a programmable blockchain such as Ethereum.

In this activity, you will use Link to record ownership of assets (in this example, collectible digital stamps) on the blockchain.

With Link and its built-in private blockchain, there is no need to use common blockchain development tools such as Infura or acquire an underlying token such as ETH from an exchange to pay for gas fees – it just works!
