The new chain serves users on the BSN-DDC network, an infrastructure that allows NFT issuance in China without involving cryptocurrency transactions.
Based on EOS, Zhong Yi Chain adds to a growing number of technical options on BSN open permissioned blockchains for developers to build decentralized applications.
China Mobile is actively involved in the formation of BSN, serving as one of its four founding members.
