Bloxroute Releases Blockchain Distribution Network for Ethereum and Bitcoin Cash

On December 3, the crypto software firm Bloxroute’s cofounder, Eyal Markovich, announced the launch of the startup’s Blockchain Distribution Network (BDN) Version 1. Markovich explained that the BDN V1 release is a milestone for the company and the scalability service aims to enable exponential blockchain scaling by propagating blocks and transactions faster.

The Blockchain Distribution Network Version 1

The startup Bloxroute, a firm dedicated to blockchain propagation software, recently revealed the launch of BDN V1. The protocol is a “Layer-0 blockchain scalability solution” and Bloxroute’s Markovich detailed that developers have been working “tirelessly” toward the effort. News.Bitcoin.com first reported on Bloxroute back in November 2018, after the Bitcoin Cash blockchain split. After BSV split off from the BCH network, both communities heavily debated how miners and nodes would handle massive sized blocks in the future. At the time, Bloxroute was brought up in these debates quite a bit, because the startup claims the BDN can provide more efficient block propagation for blockchains.

“In particular, Bloxroute propagates blocks without knowledge of the transactions they contain, their number, and the ‘wallets’ or addresses involved. Miners are free to include arbitrary transactions in a block,” the Bloxroute whitepaper explains.

Since then Bloxroute has been experimenting with multiple blockchains and recent tests include the ETH Mining Test, Bitcoin Cash Miner Test, and the Akomba Labs Test. The results from the Bitcoin Cash Miner Test, in particular, had shown that “BDN propagates large blocks (32MB) between 2-18 seconds compared to up to 193 seconds without Bloxroute.”
