IOST introduces OnBlock to let everyday users interact with on-network DApps with email, mobile number
Next-generation, app-friendly public blockchain infrastructure IOST is introducing OnBlock to enable everyday users to interact with Decentralized Apps (DApps) on the IOST network with just their email address or cell phone number to log in.
The OnBlock platform, which is developed by an IOST node called Team Oasis, is launching April 28th. It enables wider users unfamiliar with blockchain technology or crypto wallets to benefit from games and additional DApps on IOST.
As a substitute for requiring to register for an account and securely store private keys for public blockchains, the platform users will be able to just key in their email address or cell phone number to log into DApps and immediately experience blockchain technology’s advantages on IOST.
IOST chief executive officer Jimmy Zhong said in a press release CoinReport received from Wachsman, IOST’s PR company, “The world needs a blockchain network that is not only scalable and built to deploy seamless DApp experiences, but also one that overcomes the technical barriers which prevent millions of everyday people from experiencing the benefits of blockchain technology. Through OnBlock, we will provide everyday people with a simplified and hassle-free user experience and see many more users, developers, and partners come onboard IOST and power the next generation of internet services.”
OnBlock’s introduction follows the successful mainnet launch of IOST two months back. The mainnet has already witnessed over 250k accounts registered on IOST and over 35 million transactions processed, including everyday transaction rates that surpass that of the Ethereum network consistently.
These numbers register a growth rate that excels even the top blockchain projects during their first months following their mainnets.
The platform is especially developed to remove resource management necessities like Gas and Ram, which are at present needed on other public blockchains. These advantages offer an integrated, seamless and user-friendly experience and will turn IOST into a more interesting public blockchain infrastructure for regular users, allowing for blockchain’s broad acceptance and adoption.
The first DApp to leverage OnBlock will be Endless Game. Being one of the two leading gaming DApps the world over, Endless Game witnessed transaction volumes quickly surpass 1 billion IOST tokens within the first 48 hours of its launch on IOST. As soon as users complete their convenient logins, they are able to place their bets at once and start rolling the dice on Endless Game.
The mainnet was launched on February 25th, and since then, IOST has established itself as the most scalable blockchain network available, ahead of Ethereum, Tron and EOS. Recently, it announced cooperation with the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and EHang to provide reliable and secure flight management data. IOST has also recently formed alliance with Force Protocol to enable cross-chain deployment of DApps on both ecosystems.
A total of 13 DApps are supported by IOST. The DApps include stablecoins, wallets and a suite of games. Its ecosystem has more than 250 developers and partners, including CoinGecko, DDEX, Huobi and iBank Digital Asset. The IOST token is available for trading on 26 exchanges.
