DxChain: A Decentralized Big Data and Machine Learning Network Powered by a Computing-Centric Blockchain


DxChain is a big data and machine learning network which is powered by a computing-centric blockchain. The end users could use this network as a data exchange platform to trade data and as a business intelligence analytics platform to analyze data for supporting business insights. Unlike Bitcoin and Ethereum, where the miners′ incentive is providing huge amount of computation to maintain the blockchain consensus, DxChain provides miners rewards based on the usefulness of the work: storage and computation.
