Yenom developers introduce Bitcoin BCH proposal platform for Dapps
The development team behind the Yenom cryptocurrency wallet apparently doesn’t ever stop working. After introducing their successful wallet, they then introduced the Deep Link Payment Protocol (DLPP), a one-click method for paying with Bitcoin BCH on any website. Now, they’re at it again, this time launching a new proposition model for decentralized applications (Dapps).
The model, the Bitcoin Dapps Improvement Proposal (BDIP) standard, is designed to allow for easy classification of new Dapps on the Bitcoin BCH network. It also provides a mechanism that describes the function of the Dapp and any associated processes.
According to the BDIP GitHub repository, “The BDIP should provide a concise technical specification of the feature and a rationale for the feature. The BDIP author is responsible for building consensus within the community and documenting dissenting opinions.”
BDIP serves a much-needed purpose. It allows the community to track applications built on the Bitcoin BCH blockchain, as well as to provide feedback, find out if the developers are still active and check the status of any implementation or issue.
The repository explains, “For Bitcoin dapp implementers, BDIPs are a convenient way to track the progress of their implementation. Ideally, each implementation maintainer would list the BDIPs that they have implemented. This will give end users a convenient way to know the current status of a given implementation or library.”
By design, there would be three types of BDIPs – a standard track, an informational BDIP and one for the processes involved in the Bitcoin BCH application. Any proposal is required to meet all of the criteria and must describe in detail the application’s intentions. The developers suggest that BDIP authors “bet their own project” to ensure that it has utility and is original. They explain in the repository, “[This] helps to make sure the idea is applicable to the entire community and not just the author.”
The first BDIP has already been created. Gabriel Cardona, who created Bitbox, announced on Twitter that he had created Dapp ID, which is a “unique identifier for a single dapp protocol with the specification of the dapp.”
Yenom developers haven’t shown any signs of slowing down. Apart from DLPP and BDIP, they also won the first BCH Devcon recently held in San Francisco and have also introduced a Bitcoin Cash Kit, which contains a Bitcoin BCH library for iOS software development.
Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (SegWit) chain are referenced as BTC coins; tokens on the Bitcoin Cash ABC chain are referenced as BCH, BCH-ABC or BAB coins.
Bitcoin Satoshi Vision (BSV) is today the only Bitcoin project that follows the original Satoshi Nakamoto whitepaper, and that follows the original Satoshi protocol and design. BSV is the only public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin and will massively scale to become the world’s new money and enterprise blockchain.
