GoChain Adds DISH Network as Signing Node
GoChain has decided to add DISH Network as a signing node in its network. Atilla Tinic, DISH Chief Information Officer, said that they are very interested in testing new technologies.
On the matter, Tinic commented:
“We are curious about new and interesting technology that may help us better deliver for our customers. Go Chain’s approach is unique, so we’re giving our top notch developers a chance to take it for a test drive.”
DISH has an annual revenue of $13 billion and it provides satellite and streaming TV services in the U.S. market. Back in 2014, the firm started accepting Bitcoin (BTC) for payments. Back in 2018, the company announced that they were also accepting Bitcoin Cash (BCH) for their services.
Meanwhile, GoChain’s Proof of Reputation (PoR) is a consensus algorithm designed in order to provide power to “reputable” validators in the network. PoR is fast, it does not contaminate as much as Bitcoin mining activities and is also Enterprise friendly. The network is also ready to have 50 different companies signing blocks and protecting the network.
The CEO of GoChain, Jason Dekker, mentioned that DISH has always been a technology pioneer and that they are very proud of having DISH Network as a node signer.
DISH has been working in the pay-TV industry and it has provided innovative and valuable services to users. Meanwhile, GoChain is a scalable and low-cost network protocol that has been specifically designed to run applications and deploy smart contracts.
