Bit4id and its Trust Service Provider Uanataca have a node in the new network Alastria Telsius

Alastria is a consortium composed by companies and institutions from different sectors (public, private, associations, universities, etc.) with the aim of developing a Blockchain/DLT ecosystem. With more than 500 members, it is the first multisectorial network in the world to use this technology. Bit4id and Uanataca, new members of the consortium, have recently set up a node within the Telsius network of Alastria. The network currently has about 20 “Blockmaker” nodes, 4 “Bootnode” nodes and 93 “Regular” nodes. This last category also includes the node of Bit4id and Uanataca.

The Telsius network is based on Quorum, a platform to create “Permissioned” networks built with another DLT technology, Ethereum. It was initially developed by JP Morgan to meet the needs of the financial industry, but its Ethereum-type nature and the ability to create smart contracts made it suitable for any sector and need.

Alastria also includes a project for a digital identity model inspired by the concept of Self Sovereign Identity (SSI), of great interest for Bit4id and Uanataca. This project is used in the current network through smart contracts, with the aim of aligning with the specifications of Decentralized Identifiers (DIDs), essential components within SSI ecosystems. With the aim of making Alastria a “platform agnostic” network and not depending on a single platform, work began to create two new networks: one based on Parity and one based on HyperLedger Fabric.
