Conflux Network & China Telecom Develop Blockchain SIM Card
Conflux Network, the first regulatory compliant public blockchain in China and global communications network, China Telecom, today unveiled its jointly developed Blockchain SIM (BSIM) card at the Xuhui District West Bank Artificial Intelligence Center in Shanghai. The BSIM card looks similar to traditional SIM cards but has an expanded range of functions that make it much more powerful. It boasts storage space 10-20 times larger than traditional SIM cards and computing power several dozen times greater, making it fully compatible with mainstream mobile terminal systems such as Android and iOS.
The BSIM card can also generate and store users’ public and private keys within the card itself which reduces the risk of users’ mobile terminals being targeted by malware and virus software attacks. Furthermore, it can implement encrypted storage, key recovery functions and even integrate traditional U-shield functions to better protect users’ private keys using hardware security advantages of the BSIM card. This makes it currently one of the safest Web3 user terminal entry solutions available on the market today.
World First On-Chain Interaction
During this launch event, Dr. Wu Ming from Conflux Network was able to successfully transfer a Commemorative NFT of the China Telecom & Conflux Partnership by pressing a single button within an app running on his phone connected to his BSIM card account – marking a world first for publicly used blockchain technology via this type of device.
Dr Wu Ming commented that: “From now on, all mobile communication users can obtain a more secure digital identity through mobile terminals and access Web3 and the metaverse with minimal technical barriers.“ Li Anmin from China Telecom added: “We are committed to working alongside Conflux Network in developing and promoting practical communication solutions based on blockchain technology.“
