BTL Files Patents on Connected Blockchain Platform Interbit and Underlying Hypervisor Architecture

BTL announced that it has filed patents on its enterprise blockchain platform Interbit. Interbit is a third generation blockchain platform with unique 'connecting' capability developed by BTL after it became apparent that second generation blockchains would not scale to meet enterprise demands as the technology matures. BTL confirmed through pre-commercial and confidential beta testing that its Interbit platform consistently exceeds customers' requirements in many sectors, including finance and energy.

"Interbit now has the capacity to operate and inter-connect many thousands of Interbit blockchains per server in a secure, private, and scalable manner. We realized very quickly that single blockchain solutions such as current generation two offerings would not allow blockchain technology to fully realize its transformative capabilities in the years ahead - we needed Interbit to scale far beyond what already exists in the blockchain space. Our new capabilities clearly define what generation three blockchains are capable of," said Tom Thompson, CTO of BTL. "During our successful pilots we have proven Interbit's privacy and scalability capabilities, securing it as a recognized enterprise grade blockchain platform. Interbit has also been designed for ease of use by customers, allowing it to be integrated into existing IT infrastructure in a quick and simple manner, not seen before in our industry."

Interbit allows practical creation of blockchain-based solutions through JavaScript applications. Designed specifically to address modern enterprise requirements and to position the Company with an industry leading blockchain solution, Interbit is currently in beta after being in development over the past two years. The Interbit Hypervisor is Interbit's underlying architecture designed to enable "chain-connecting" which allows for multiple, inter-connected blockchains to operate at scale, while maintaining privacy where required. The patent filings are an important milestone in BTL's growth as it clearly defines the Interbit platform's unique features and is an integral part of progressing projects with existing and new clients going forward.

"Filing patent applications for the Interbit platform allows us to position BTL as a leader in the blockchain technology space as it clearly defines our offering as a highly scalable enterprise blockchain development platform with interoperability embedded. We are very close to delivering Interbit into a live environment as a product that will leapfrog all existing blockchain technologies. This will position the Company to meet and exceed the increasingly complex demands for blockchain solutions across all industries," said Dominic McCann, CEO of BTL. "Blockchain technology must meet the security and scalability expectations of the enterprise and be easy to work with before enterprise adoption will scale. Interbit, delivers on both."

Scalability & Privacy via the Interbit Hypervisor

The patent pending Interbit blockchain platform and its underlying Hypervisor architecture addresses scalability and privacy, two key challenges that blockchain technology faces in order to make it relevant to enterprise, as follows:

1. The Interbit Hypervisor architecture enables thousands of Interbit blockchains per server to operate and connect efficiently with one another.

2. Connecting Interbit blockchains will allow:

a. solutions to scale horizontally, targeting combined network throughput rates in the hundreds of thousands of transactions per second;
b. solutions to hold enterprise scale data volumes targeting the petabyte range; and
c. networks of blockchains to communicate with one another directly.
3. The Interbit Hypervisor was built from the ground up to address one of the main challenges for blockchain technology: ease of use. Developers use familiar tools and languages when building on Interbit.

4. Written in pure JavaScript, the Interbit Hypervisor runs natively in modern browsers allowing direct access to Interbit blockchains without needing to first connect to a server - the browser becomes one of the nodes.
