It’s no secret that as far as blockchains go, none has the capability to allow real-world development like what is found with Bitcoin SV (BSV). Even before the Genesis upgrade, which removed block size limits and allows for endless scaling potential, developers were hard at work creating solutions on BSV that could be adopted by businesses around the world. This level of creation continues at a feverish pace, and one of the most recent tools to be added to the arsenal is Operate. At the CoinGeek Conference in London, CoinGeek’s Hannah Jackson caught up with the creator of Operate, Aaron Russell, to learn more about his solution and what it is doing to help Bitcoin development.
Operate was introduced last November after Russell felt satisfied with the year-long work he put into the system. It essentially enables standard functions on the BSV blockchain that can then be used by all developers to create their programs. Put simply, it is a software layer that sits above Bitcoin and provides an adaptable set of protocols that makes blockchain application creation uniform and drastically cuts down on the amount of time and effort needed to launch new blockchain solutions.
For those who have been around for a while, the jump from Windows 3.1 to Windows 95, at its time, was a huge leap forward for computer software. Similarly, Operate is providing a mechanism that takes blockchain development to a new level and which allows for APIs, SDKs and other, new development tools to be introduced easily, building on the previous solutions that have already been implemented. It establishes set functions on the chain that allows for simplified transaction development of any type going forward.
As a result, Operate has the ability to lead to even greater development on the Bitcoin blockchain, with developers having an implementation that can lead to the creation of novel solutions and a wide range of solid, real-world applications directly on the blockchain. It can also lead to new use cases, which will, in turn, lead to even more novel approaches to Bitcoin development.
Russell has dedicated much of his time lately showcasing Operate and has spent countless hours making trips to various BSV events to highlight its capabilities. Through this, he has become more impressed by the people and the products that are found in the BSV community, which is energizing him to continue fine-tuning Operate. One characteristic he expects to be included soon is a job script implementation, which, as any developer knows, is a huge time-saver. It’s because of people like Russell, and other software experts, that the BSV blockchain has become the only chain that is built to be used by enterprises and businesses in real-world scenarios.
