KONA’s Blockchain Solution in its Underway for Bangladesh Market

In recent years, the blockchain technology has inspired widespread enthusiasm as a technology that can revolutionize IT usage in many industries. Potential usage of the technology are numerous and wide-ranging. The technology is specifically useful in the financial and business sectors. Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML), crowd funding, digital identity and asset management, chain of custody and supply chain management, regulatory reporting and tax automation are just few examples where application of the technology can transform how we do business and finance.

In the blockchain technology, a collection of autonomous, possibly mutually distrusted entities come together to form a peer-to-peer network, called a blockchain network. The distributed blockchain network maintains a ledger of transactions in the form of a chain of blocks. Each network participant, called a miner or peer, validates all transactions sent to the ledger and maintains a complete copy of the transaction ledger in its local storage.Only those transactions accepted by the majority network participants stay in the ledger – others are rejected. Blocks of transactions are chained in the ledger in such a manner that it is impossible to compromise the ledgerif the majority network participants remain honest. The resiliency of the blockchain network allows it to be treated as a distributed computer where programs encoding real-world business logic, called smart contract, can be deployed and executed to automate many financial and business processing.

KONA Software, which is the Dhaka office of South Korean Technology pioneer KONA I  is in a unique position regardingspreading adoption of the blockchain technology in Bangladesh as it hasexpertise in both core technological aspects of blockchain and its application level usage. KONA is among the handful of IT companies in the world that have developed their own blockchain technology solution. Its public blockchain solution, which is based on the Ethereum blockchain, offers features such as guaranteed transaction finality, application life-cycle management, smart contract verification, ledger backup, participant management, and network power consumption control. All these are important to utilize a blockchain network as a service platform for real world applications. On the other hand, its business blockchain administration platform allows easy configuration, management, and monitoring of Hyperledger blockchain networks. Currently, several blockchain application projects are underway mainly in the Korean market.
