He Yifan, CEO of Red Date Technology, a local private company and founding member of BSN, told Cointelegraph that the new website allows developers to use BSN’s services and the public broadcaster’s services through the portal.
As part of the new global effort, BSN now features live integration of six public broadcasters, including Ethereum, EOS, Nervos, Tezos, NEO and IRISnet. This allows developers to build decentralized applications (DApps) and run nodes via data storage and bandwidth in BSN’s offshore data centers.

In addition, the new website features several of the world’s leading Immediate Edge technology and blockchain companies as partners of BSN. Google and Amazon Web Services are listed as cloud service providers, while Hyperledger is listed as an authorized blockchain network provider. „We have good support from several major cloud service providers because they really like the idea and the vision of BSN,“ he said.
