Some of The Better Questions We've Received
What is the difference between Bastionne and other blockchains?
If you are familiar with blockchain technology, keep reading if not please watch this video for a short introduction on the validation mechanism of blockchain. In short, prior generation blockchain uses past entries or blocks of data to verify the blockchain across its network. Bastionne, on the other hand utilises past and future data blocks with AI to validate the blockchain in the present. This makes Bastionne end-to-end private and secure, light on data and computational power, and lightning fast. Other blockchains do not meet all of these capabilities.
Can Bastionne be used for secure enterprise applications?
Yes, Bastionne was designed for enterprise applications. It is private, affordable and easy to integrate. Previous generation blockchain technology is unusable for most businesses due to it not possessing the aforementioned characteristics.
What makes Bastionne better than other blockchains or security solutions?
Bastionne uses AI to validate data and other parameters making it faster, private and less computing intensive compared to previous generation blockchains. Bastionne is also designed to be customisable for different use-cases and platforms where other protocols and blockchains are not.
Is Bastionne quantum computer resistant?
Yes. Bastionne is the ultimate vehicle to safely and securely distribute keys or validate events for symmetric-key cryptography. We paired the aforementioned characteristic of Bastionne with AES 256. Resultantly, Bastionne is hyper-secure against quants and hackers, offers real-time encryption and decryption of data, and can easily integrate onto new and old platforms.
Is Bastionne built on top of another blockchain?
At its core blockchain is merely a means to build an audit trail of past data entries. The cumbersome thing that it entails, however, is the validation of the data. To date the main method of validating a blockchain has been via a distributed node network, whether it is proof-of-work, proof-of-stake or delegation, all of which are only pseudo-private at best. This makes blockchain unusable for many if not most enterprise level applications, although a lot of blockchain gurus will vehemently try to tell you otherwise. But, for example, it is not in the best interest of banks nor their clients to have their financial transactions or details stored on an open blockchain, lest someone detect something confidential.
With this in mind, we took the data audit trail aspect of blockchain and added more functionality to it, so that it now utilises both the past and future in order to power our AI validation mechanism. Resultantly, this allows devices or users to create hyper-private blockchains amongst themselves and validate data on their private chains without the need for external validators. Following the example of banking above, banks and their clients can now securely share confidential data with one another that cannot be abused or intercepted by third parties.
So to answer the question about whether Bastionne is built on top of another blockchain, it is not as multiple private and unique blockchains are created between devices in a Bastionne network, which can be facilitated with either our servers or private ones, depending on the use-case requirements.
A lot of enterprise blockchain platforms have come and gone. What makes Bastionne unique?
A lot of enterprise blockchain solutions are worthy of skepticism, as people are trying to use technology for something that it wasn't intended for, due to the validation mechanisms of those chains. They might try to add additional protocols on top of it, but that is like hammering a nail in with a shoe, it sometimes works but a shoe doesn't magically become a hammer. Of course, a lot of DLT companies don't help with the skepticism regarding blockchain either as they often proudly refer to their techstacks as blockchain when they only offer a decentralised ledger, which is not the same thing.
Bastionne and all of it's subserving protocols and algorithms, on the other hand, are designed for enterprise applications. This makes Bastionne faster, safer and more reliable for enterprise solutions compared to other blockchains. Bastionne is also heavily customisable for unique use-cases where other platforms are not.
