BotChain Announces New Partner Program and Initial Launch Partners

Major bot companies join to create a blockchain and cryptocurrency for autonomous agents of all kinds.

BOSTON, Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BotChain, a blockchain platform to accelerate and connect the ecosystem of artificially intelligent bots and software by providing universal registration, identity validation, and bot audit and compliance capabilities, today announced its new partnership program, with several leading platforms and SaaS applications already on board. Combined, BotChain's early partners represent more than 50,000 developers and upwards of 150,000 enterprise and consumer facing bots that interact with nearly 400 million end-users globally, sending billions of messages each month.

The initial set of partners include Gupshup, a platform for developers, and B2B enterprise bots Polly, CareerLark, Botkit, Disco (formerly Growbot), Zoom.ai and Botkeeper. BotChain's parent company, Talla, will also utilize the BotChain platform for its core product, an intelligent assistant for company knowledge management. The partnerships are a strong indicator of the demand for specific utilities and standards in this quickly growing sector.

"The rapidly growing and widespread demand for bots that we've seen at Gupshup clearly proves the need for a new level of standardization within the industry, and BotChain offers a powerful solution," said Gupshup CEO, Beerud Sheth. "Everyone who interacts with a bot in any capacity benefits from this new layer of enablement and increased accountability, and we are excited to be a part of that." The Gupshup platform is deployed at top companies like Facebook, Twitter, and HDFC Bank.

The ecosystem that BotChain services spans beyond just bot, AI and robotic process automation markets, with benefits to existing software companies, messaging platforms and enterprise consulting firms. With the estimated revenue of AI products expected to reach more than $47 billion by 2020, a universally accepted means of bot or AI registration, identity validation, audit and transaction is critical. BotChain will use blockchain's endemic features of immutability and verifiability needed to support this tremendous growth. "Beyond enabling human trust of AI products, our vision for BotChain is to deliver a foundation for an entire world of bot coordination, communication and transaction, with BotCoin as the currency of the AI agent ecosystem. We are thrilled to partner with fellow leaders in our space, as we build out this vision together," said Rob May, CEO of Talla, the company behind BotChain.

Those following the blockchain and cryptocurrency news will be well aware of how many illegitimate projects have surfaced, whether in the actual viability of use case of the product, or the ability of the team to execute on the vision they're selling. BotChain has chosen to announce early partners in order to demonstrate the quality and maturity of the project and network compared to many other blockchain projects.

"BotChain will be managed and molded by an invested and proven group of like-minded partners," stated Anthony Habayeb, head of BotChain partnerships. "Aligned thinking is key for fueling adoption and acceleration. We are excited by these early partners and to continue forming alliances across the ecosystem of artificially intelligent bots and software."

BotChain has allocated 20 percent of BotCoin tokens for partnership investments and ecosystem building.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

For example, using spot instances and co...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...

The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the abili...
