Sean Pollock, the software engineer involved heavily with unwriter’s Planaria, made the trip to the U.K. in February to participate in the CoinGeek London 2020 conference. It was an opportunity to discuss everything the group is working on, and there is definitely no shortage of projects being developed on a daily basis. With things like Bitdb, Bitsock, Bitfs and so much more in the pipeline, it’s never a dull moment for Pollock or the others involved in advancing Bitcoin innovation. Following his on-stage presentation, CoinGeek’s Hannah Jackson caught up with Pollock for a short one-on-one chat about what the Bitcoin community can expect going forward.
For those who may not be familiar with the name, Pollock has a substantial history with Bitcoin SV (BSV). He was one of the first, if not the first, to develop a smart contract system for BSV, which was subsequently acquired by Planaria. As a result, he moved to the company with his pet project, and has been concentrating on building out the backend infrastructure of the blockchain ever since.
The “Bit” projects mentioned above are helping to facilitate data storage and sharing on the blockchain at a level that has never been possible with any blockchain. As the initiatives continue to gain traction and incorporate more data, what will emerge is a database that will be on the same scale as that found with Google.
All of these projects, as indicated, are being developed by Planaria, and third-party entities needed a way to interface with them in order to roll out their own blockchain solutions. Enter Bitbus, which allows the developers to interface with Planaria’s system in order to grab the necessary tools to complete their applications.
