In late February, Anthurine, the co-founder and CMO of QuarkChain, attended the Silicon Valley Women in Engineering 2020 summit. Affected by the spread of the COVID-19 in the United States, many organizations postponed and cancelled their technology summits and forums. Alternatively, they moved the events online. Under the “Emerging Technology” sub-forum of the meeting, Anthurine shared her thoughts on “Future-oriented Blockchain” with online audience.
The 2020 Silicon Valley Women in Engineering (WiE) Conference is structured to provide female engineers with opportunities to learn cutting-edge technical topics and career development skills that they will need to thrive in the workplace. The WiE Conference provides a wealth of opportunities to connect with accomplished women technologists and fellow students for inspiration and support.
The conference consists of many sessions, including aerospace, software engineering, microelectronics, biotechnology, as well as the popular artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual reality, and blockchain technologies.
The decentralized application in blockchain has transformed various industries such as digital payment, health care, agriculture, and automobile industry. The blockchain platform bears several unique characteristics, such as immutability and scalability, which enables the development of the safest trading systems and service applications. Regarding the broad prospects of developing applications in various fields, Anthurine mentioned during the summit that one of the main directions to increase the availability of blockchain system and accelerate the early landing of blockchain technology is to improve the network effect of the whole blockchain system. One way of accomplishing that is to enhance the compatibility and flexibility of the systems to enable speedy development of the entire ecosystem of the blockchain network.
In this regard, QuarkChain relies on the Boson consensus to not only build the public chain, but also recently launched the enterprise-level solution, QuarkChain Union, to meet more specialized needs under different scenarios. At the same time, QuarkChain implements the heterogeneous sharding technology which is compatible with different virtual machines, consensus mechanisms, programming languages, and token economics. Each shard can realize interconnection, so as to build a foundation for creating an effective ecosystem. In addition, in order to meet the needs of efficient application developers of DeFi and DApp, QuarkChain also launched the multi-native token technology. With this new feature, one can issue tokens by contracts to enjoy the same application functions as native token. In the long run, use of multi-native tokens can reduce development costs and operation costs for applications and improve the overall efficiency of the network system.
As a conference for top talents in Silicon Valley, the conference attracted the attention and support of many enterprises and technological experts: Cisco, Google, IBM, Intel and many other companies sponsored the summit. Amid this unusual circumstance of global pandemic, the conference were hosted virtually and nonetheless attracted plenty of attention from around the world. It was a great occasion for QuarkChain to bond with women engineers and exchanged with them regarding QuarkChain technology and blockchain ideas.
