Peerplays Blockchain Standards Association
Building technology that helps communities grow through gamified consensus

What is PBSA?

PBSA stands for Peerplays Blockchain Standards Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the functionality and usability of the Peerplays blockchain. The association has been active since 2016 and has gathered a vast amount of knowledge about how to enhance the blockchain to provide better services.

The Peerplays blockchain uses cutting-edge blockchain technology, which operates like a digital ledger accessible to all and tamper-proof. This technology offers numerous possibilities, including the creation of computer games and programs that facilitate collaboration among people.

Over the years, PBSA has focused on research and development in blockchain technologies, utilizing the latest advancements to make things better for people. Their contributions to the Peerplays blockchain include developing advanced decentralized information markets in sports, on-chain raffle operations that use the first-ever GLI verified decentralized RNG, live streaming content creation, and comprehensive enhancements to decentralized exchange functions native to the Peerplays core.

Moreover, PBSA has enabled other blockchains like Bitcoin, Hive, and Ethereum to send core assets into the Peerplays blockchain in a completely decentralized manner.

The association has also made significant efforts to make blockchain usage easier for people by developing new and exciting ways to utilize it. We have also introduced a novel consensus mechanism called Proof of Pulse, which enables people to agree on what should happen in the blockchain.

PBSA is headquartered in Debert, Nova Scotia, where a team of blockchain experts works tirelessly on exciting projects aimed at benefiting people worldwide.🌎

Why is PBSA Needed?

Trust in the integrity of all institutions of authority is at an all-time low:

  • Regulatory frameworks are regressive, out-of-date, and slow to evolve
  • Self-regulation of institutions has predictably disastrous results
  • Exploitative targeting of individuals is endemic amongst trusted institutions
  • Personal data are stored on private, centralized servers with zero transparency

In short, people are being failed by current systems and regulatory frameworks.

Since the arrival of Bitcoin, countless whitepapers have promised to revolutionize the way people organize and cooperate with each other using blockchain technology. The reality has been poorly-conceived, technologically under-powered projects, with the enrichment of early investors a primary goal.

Traditional institutions are in desperate need of modernization and reform. But the transformative power of decentralization must be harnessed for the good of individual, not just a small number of blockchain speculators as has been endemic in the blockchain industry.

With decades of combined experience and research in the blockchain space, PBSA is ideally placed to take on a leadership role in this period of change, and ensure that the Peerplays blockchain is a liberating, positive force for people everywhere.

Peerplays is a special kind of computer system that helps people work together without needing to trust each other. It uses a new kind of technology called blockchain which is like a big digital ledger that everyone can see and nobody can change. From Graphene, to Substrate, Peerplays gives you a new way to do things. This system is very advanced and uses many different kinds of computer programs to work. It can help people create new things like computer games or other kinds of programs that can help people work together better. It’s like having a big playground where everyone can play together and make new things!
