Conflux Network and China Telecom Unveil Blockchain SIM Card
Conflux Network, the first regulatory compliant public blockchain in China, and global communications network, China Telecom, have jointly developed and unveiled their Blockchain SIM (BSIM) card at the Xuhui District West Bank Artificial Intelligence Center in Shanghai. The BSIM card is a mobile user identification card based on blockchain technology that looks nearly identical to traditional SIM cards but has storage space 10-20 times larger than traditional SIM cards and computing power several dozen times greater.
Features of the BSIM Card
The BSIM card boasts additional features such as generating and storing users’ public and private keys within the card without ever leaving it, reducing risk of malware or virus software attacks. It also enables encrypted storage, key recovery functions, and even integrates traditional U-shield functions for added security. The BSIM is fully compatible with mainstream mobile terminal systems such as Android and iOS.
First On-Chain Interaction
At the launch event, Dr. Wu Ming successfully transferred a Commemorative NFT of the China Telecom and Conflux Partnership by pressing the send button within an app associated with his BSIM card account. This marked the first on-chain interaction with a public use of the new technology.
The Practical Applications Of A Web3 User Terminal Entry Solution
Dr. Wu Ming stated: “From now on, all mobile communication users can obtain a more secure digital identity through mobile terminals and access Web3 and metaverse with minimal technical barriers.“ Li Anmin added: “We are committed to working alongside Conflux Network in developing and promoting practical communication solutions using blockchain technology.“
By leveraging hardware security advantages of their Blockchain SIM (BSIM) cards to protect users’ private keys, Conflux Network and China Telecom have created what is currently regarded as safest way for users to enter Web3 applications while providing them with a more secure digital identity through their mobile terminals with minimal technical barriers.
