The payments subsidiary of Alibaba, Ant Group has launched a new blockchain solution called AntChain

According to a report AntChain is built on top of Ant Group’s blockchain technology that includes artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things (IoT), secure computation, and other technologies.

As part of the AntChain initiative, the Ant Group has built a new workstation similar to the size of a laptop that comes with a built-in software and hardware accelerator meant to smoothen the functioning of blockchain applications.

Reportedly, AntChain’s workstation can reduce the set-up time to one-tenth of the usual and can increase transaction speeds by 30%. 

Ant Group stepped into blockchain in 2015 and started working on commercial applications on its blockchain last year.

The company claims that it can support over one billion user accounts and process up to a billion transactions per day.
