CPChain’s Principal Scientist, Dr. LONG Chengnian, chats with BlockchainBrad (BCB) about all aspects of his innovative Cyber Physical Chain project. But what is CPChain? Well, put simply, it is a new distributed infrastructure for next generation Internet of Things (IoT). CPChain intends to build a fundamental data platform for IoT system in combination with distributed storage, encryption computation and blockchain technologies, providing the whole process solution from data acquisition, storage, sharing to application. CPChain is a promising solution to a series of challenges of current “chimney architecture” of IoT systems, reducing connectivity cost of devices, protecting data privacy and maximizing the value of IoT data.

Dr. LONG Chengnian, Professor
CPChain Co-Founder/Principal Scientist
Research Interest:Internet of Things, Distributed Intelligent Systems with Blockchain Technology

Core Features: Scalability, Security, Rapidity

The core feature of the CPChain is to realize the transmission of the value of cyber-physical systems. The main technology contribution is to propose a systematic scheme to address the scalability and real-time problems of blockchain technology in IoTs from the perspective of data storage and computation, and consensus protocols, including parallel distributed architecture, two-layer hybrid consensus mechanism and lightweight side chain consensus protocol.

The CPChain R&D team is an international, knowledge-structured, energetic team. The founding team members include top talent from universities, Internet of things industry, financial security companies and business operations.
