Today we talk to Kingsley Hendrickse, Founder and Lead Developer of SushiChain! But what is SushiChain?
SushiChain is a CPU only proof of work blockchain which Kingsley and his team wrote from scratch using the Crystal programming language. They did not fork another existing blockchain – they wrote their own using concepts from Bitcoin and Ethereum.
There is already plenty of proof of work (POW) blockchains that just allow currency transactions so their focus is on providing a platform for businesses and developers to build decentralised applications (dApps) quickly and cheaply. SushiChain have taken a slightly different approach to other chains in this space by not implementing on-chain smart contracts.
They did this because they believe that there is an endless list of products and projects that don't need the kind of functionality that smart contracts were designed for. Instead, they have a plugin-style architecture where you can your own node connected to the network and you can implement any logic you need in the node.
They also have the concept of Smart Assets which are similar in a way to smart contracts but only allow mutation of an asset. The Smart Assets system can be used to create a mutable asset within the immutable blockchain. An asset can be registered on the blockchain and is defined by a set of properties. These properties can be mutated and have logic applied to them via companion code.
They also have a full public API so you can write dApps in any language.
Apps are on the rise - everybody loves apps especially mobile apps and there is an ever-increasing demand for new and interesting apps. They would like to be the go-to platform for building the new breed of apps - decentralised, secure and powered by blockchain technology.
SushiChain’s smart asset language is called Taro which compiles down to bytecode and is stored immutably within the blockchain. Using Taro you can write smart asset code which can mutate an asset's properties. Smart assets can be invoked via transactions and queried via an asset API.
So, imagine a game asset such as a sword which has a set of properties. It has attack and defense points. Companion code could be written to increase the swords attack and defense points as the asset levels up within a game. The code would be able to impose minimum and maximum values for the properties or cause-related properties to change based on a specific state within the asset.
The developer portal will be the main gateway into SushiChain for people who want to build dApps. It will have a wide range of support tools, tutorials, and other helpful materials. In addition to the core feature of building dApps, they plan to have several related and supporting components.
SushiChain will build a cross-platform GUI light wallet with a built-in secure chat capability. The secure chat will also be able to perform wallet functionality such as checking balances and sending transactions. They will also provide a set of integrations for well-known social media and chat platforms to provide similar but more restricted wallet functionality within the chat.
SushiChain will also provide dApp builders with the capability to add shopping baskets, stores, and simple payment plugins to their dApp to support paying for things in both the default SUSHI token, as well as a custom token.
The SushiChain team also plan to release several dApps which will run on the SushiChain platform. The first dApp we plan to release is an online competitive trading card game called Guardians of Axum. Guardians of Axum is an online competitive turn-based trading card game. Players buy decks of collectible cards and battle them out against each other in tournaments. You can find more information about our Guardians of Axum game at www.guardiansofaxum.com.
