Storing data on a public blockchain is very different from storing data on a traditional database. One of the main differences is access to the data. Whereas when storing data on a database there is the assumption that that data is private and will remain private, storing data on a public blockchain should have the assumption that that data is public and will remain public. While on the first case private data may become public, something that happens every time there is a leak of information, on the second case public data will never become private again. When it gets…

All blockchains have a scalability hard cap. You can make it the fastest blockchain in the world, with blocks as large as possible, and nevertheless you still end up with a scalability hard cap. And a low one for that matter. What does low mean in this context? Just consider all the data that is stored and transacted in the world today. We’ve entered the zettabyte scale, and everything points that it’s not stopping anytime soon. For context, a zettabyte is one million petabytes, and a petabyte is one million gigabytes.

From this perspective, a blockchain is everything but scalable…

In this article I would like to expand on why BlockBase was designed the way it is, and why it’s important to know about it. The BlockBase concept started with security first. We wanted to develop something that enabled the storage of databases on blockchain, and that also followed the best security practices available.

Security is a hard problem to solve, and it isn’t restricted to one area only, but instead traverses many different areas like infrastructure security, data security, software security, identity control and access, network and communications and organizational security. …

We’re proud to announce a partnership between BlockBase and HireVibes.

HireVibes is at the forefront of solving a big problem in the recruitment industry. Recruitment platforms like LinkedIn serve as intermediaries between businesses and job seekers, offering powerful connection services in return for a membership fee. The business of being a centralized intermediary is primed for disruption by blockchain technologies.

We are witnessing the dawn of decentralized systems with novel economic models for incentivizing fair collaborations between different actors with different interests and intentions. HireVibes is an excellent example of that. Its goal is to offer a decentralized jobs platform…

The time to kick-start the BlockBase Network has come. We’re proud to announce a new token distribution program that benefits everyone who wants to participate on the network as a service provider. We’re going to request a sidechain for us, and we’re going to pay for it. The number of spots as service providers is limited, so if you’re interested in earning some BBT while being an awesome crypto pioneer, this is your opportunity.

The reason we’re doing this is simple. All blockchain networks have economic incentives for participating as a node on the network. Bitcoin does this through BTC…

Today, BlockBase is distributing 2.5M tokens for airgrab #7. We’ve had 486 registrations on this airgrab, from which 283 didn’t follow the rules for airgrabbing or were blacklisted, leaving only 203 accounts to join the list of accounts to receive tokens.

BlockBase has now successfully distributed 30% of all tokens on these past airgrabs. The plan we announced for our airgrabs was to have 24 consecutive airgrabs, and on each one distribute 1/7th of the remaining tokens to distribute, which would be a total 45% of all tokens. This means that we would still have 15% of tokens to distribute…

BlockBase Beta has arrived! After more than 3 years since the concept was first envisioned, and 1.5 years of active research and development, we’ve finally moved into the EOS main net.

BlockBase was being tested on the EOS Jungle test net for about 3 months now and moving it from test net to main net was a small step for us, but a giant leap for BlockBase.

From now on, the BlockBase software may be actively run by anyone who wants to participate on the BlockBase network (The software is still in beta, so be careful not to use large…

The BlockBase team has developed a simple proof-of-concept app that showcases the power of BlockBase. It’s an online drawing app where anyone can go and draw whatever they want there (disclaimer: BlockBase isn’t responsible for what people draw, we’ve seen some pretty crazy stuff there for the past few days).

Here’s the link: https://blockbase.network/examples/pixelapp

We decided to build this app because it’s a very intuitive and fun way to show many features of BlockBase. Every time someone draws a pixel on the canvas, a BlockBase Sql request is sent to a BlockBase node that is running a sidechain to the…

The BBT token distribution for Airgrab #5 will start on March the 11th. Similarly to what happened on the previous airgrab, this airgrab will include all accounts that registered on all previous airgrabs and that pass our periodic analysis. We plan to keep this distribution model for upcoming monthly airgrabs.

1,627 accounts registered for airgrab #5 from which only 988 accounts followed the airgrabbing rules of having at least one EOS unstaked or staked to CPU or NET and being at least one month old. But from these 988 accounts only 369 weren’t blacklisted by our analysis algorithms.

We also…

The BlockBase team has recently released an online sandbox where anyone can test BlockBase’s main database querying functionalities without the need to run a full node. This release takes BlockBase one step closer to main net as a beta version, and showcases BlockBase’s functionalities to anyone who’s interested in using the platform.

In an interview with Matt Haynes on his Youtube channel Costa Crypto, we demonstrated the power of BlockBase tech using the sandbox. And the best part is that you can try it yourself too. So what we did was to show how a BlockBase database service can be…
