Baidu Adds Service to Help Developers, Small Businesses Build Dapps
Chinese internet giant Baidu launched on Monday a blockchain-based service for developers and small and medium-sized businesses to build decentralized applications, or dapps.
The new service is not the company's first effort to help developers build their own applications. It is part of Baidu's enterprise blockchain network Xuperchain and aims to attract smaller users with lower cost and technological barriers.
To simplify the process to build applications, the new service allows customers to use smart contracts templates and other functional components designed to increase efficiency.
In February, Baidu Cloud launched Baidu Blockchain Engin (BBE) to tackle storage and computing issues for developers when they try to build applications.
