ICI Bucharest Develops DNS And NFT Marketplace Using Elrond Blockchain

1 Mins read

Blockchain is one of the wheels driving the growth of new-age technologies that are advertently redefining the technological space. As we dive into a decentralized all-inclusive and integrated era that web3.0 promises, blockchain and NFT are two entities enhancing the integration of the innovative technologies of web3.0 in everyday use.

ICI (Institute for Research and Development In Informatics) was founded in 1970 and is currently the most institution for government-sponsored research in the field of information technology in Romania. It currently supervises the Romanian National Register for Domain Names.

ICI Bucharest (ICI), on Tuesday confirmed that it would be building an institutional nonfungible token (NFT) marketplace and a decentralized Domain Name System (DNS). Both services will be built on the Elrond blockchain, which is known for its capability to speed up transactions via sharding.

As told by Elrond, the initiatives would be the first of their kind within the European Union. One use for the NFT marketplace would potentially be to digitize, access, transfer and store official documents, property deeds, or various certificates via a decentralized blockchain identity.

ICI aims to leverage Elrond’s 3,200 strong network validators to overcome the security vulnerabilities of legacy DNS and TLD systems. Adrian Victor Vevera, general director of ICI Bucharest, commented:

“Web 3.0 technologies can transform public administration and help its institutions and processes leap forward in terms of efficiency and speed while decreasing costs, overhead, and excessive bureaucratic activities.”

Elrond asserts its blockchain can process up to 15,000 transactions per second with six-second latency, is carbon-negative and has negligible transaction costs. This was not Elrond’s first venture in Romania. Three months prior, the National Bank of Romania approved Elrond’s proposal to purchase Romanian fintech Capital Financial Services, also known as Twispay.

As we wait to see how things pan out in the technological space, we must endeavour to keep abreast of the changes in these technologies.
