CasperLabs and China’s BSN Blockchain Partner

Today, we announced the partnership between Casper and China’s Blockchain-based Service Network (BSN) to bring the Casper Network to broad global adoption after Casper’s mainnet launch in Q1 2021.

Founded in Spring 2020 by Red Date Technology, BSN is an infrastructure initiative backed by the Chinese government to accelerate blockchain adoption in China and beyond. The BSN is a platform that provides developers with easy onboarding into public and private blockchains they can use to build applications with reduced operational costs, improved flexibility, and better regulatory oversight. Since its launch, the BSN has deployed more than 120 public city nodes across China, serving as data centers dedicated to running and processing transactions on the blockchain networks supported by BSN. The vision of the BSN is to build a “Digital Silk Road”, establishing China as a major player in the global evolution of Web3, and building more efficient communication and coordination with the West.

The partnership between Casper and BSN will add the Casper Network to the global infrastructure, providing blockchain developers with simple access to the powerful capabilities of the public network, and will introduce Casper’s unique combination of scalability, security and decentralization to the BSN ecosystem.

“We are happy to be working with CasperLabs to provide developers with the best protocol for building decentralized applications. We invite Casper to join our operations in China.”
- Yifan He, CEO, Red Date Technology and Director, BSN

"Casper is the first fully decentralized, scalable and highly secure proof-of-stake blockchain. The CasperLabs team is committed to providing professional services and support to the growing number of enterprise organizations that are gravitating to blockchain technology to unlock value from existing assets, like contracts. Via our close partnership with BSN, we look forward to helping promote the continued adoption of this important public technology across global markets."
- Mrinal Manohar, CasperLabs CEO and co-founder

Over the weekend, BSN and CasperLabs completed a virtual signing ceremony, establishing the partnership and bringing together the teams to celebrate the next phase of Casper’s adoption in China. Omer Ozden, Chairman of RockTree Capital, was critical in the formation of the partnership.

“RockTree is honored to have helped bring BSN and CasperLabs together to form a partnership here today. We have immense confidence in both the Red Date and CasperLabs teams to spearhead the adoption of the Casper network and blockchain technology in China.”
- Omer Ozden, Chairman of RockTree Capital
