Alibaba has patented a system to simplify the inter-network interaction of blockchains

Chinese e-Commerce giant Alibaba said that the company’s patented “unified domain name system” will simplify and improve communication between blockchains.

In a patent issued by the US patent and trademark office (USPTO), Alibaba claims that the firm’s domain name system can provide a link between blockchains. Such communication will be easier and more effective than in existing solutions for interaction between blockchains, for example, in the Cosmos project.

According to the company, assigning universally recognized domain names to the blockchain or parts of the blockchain can provide better identification and interaction with other chains in the broader network. In many ways, this will be similar to how objects recognize and communicate with each other using domain names such as “.com” or “.org”.

The patent suggests that the problem with existing systems is that they can become too cumbersome. For example, Cosmos requires each blockchain to store separate identifiers for each connection that links it to another blockchain. They cannot be reused, which means that the identification system only has a “local context”.

Alibaba States that its blockchain system requires only one unified blockchain domain name (UBCDN), which is recognized and valid in all interactions with other chains without exception. This also means that the blockchain can exchange data with other systems, without the need to constantly expand the address book with specific identification data.

Recall that this spring, Alibaba received a patent for a blockchain system that allows you to determine the originality of musical compositions and resist copyright infringers.
