    Chinese search giant Baidu launches Xuperchain blockchain

    At about one-seventh the cost of competing blockchain-as-a-services platforms, the goal is to make it easier for small companies to launch DApps

    Baidu Xuperchain is a “blockchain basic service” for small- to medium-size businesses that want to quickly and easily deploy DApps and use smart contracts. It also supports President Xi Jinping's October call to make China the world leader in blockchain.
