When computer application development was first introduced to the world, it was slow and extremely convoluted. Over time, it became increasingly easier, reaching a point that could allow, to a limited degree, almost anyone to create applications they could share with others.
This is the vision of Run, a new solution being offered on Bitcoin SV (BSV) that was developed by Brenton Gunning. Gunning was in London in February for CoinGeek London 2020, and discussed the many traits of the service, all of which are helping to grow the Bitcoin ecosystem.
As Bitcoin matures, it is faced with the same progression, but is responding at a rate much quicker than previous development advances. This is due, in no small part, to the innovation that preceded blockchain’s introduction, and some of those previous programming languages are now making an appearance in the Bitcoin ecosystem. To continue driving the evolution of blockchain technology and make it the standard for all kinds of applications, a new service has come to the BSV that takes the entire concept to an entirely new level.
Jigs include things like gift cards, social media posts and other forms of digital property. Run inherently allows jigs, as well as the categories, to interact with other jigs on the blockchain, further facilitating program creation and consumer use. Tokens can be created with just three lines of code, and all of the provided alternatives are proven to work on any platform—mobile, desktop, browser and server—and Run, which is currently in alpha testing, is going to be delivered free and open-source for everyone to use.
Ultimately, the goal of Run is to change the way the Internet is perceived. This is in line with the view of the BSV community, which envisions are more reliable and monetizable web of data. Run makes getting started with development simpler by reducing the barriers to entry and facilitates third-party development with solutions that can work easily across different platform. The forward-thinking capability of Gunning, as well as others taking advantage of the BSV blockchain and its massive scaling properties, is playing an important role in advancing blockchain adoption on a global level.
