Multiversum delivering 4th Generation Blockchain – A Relational Crypto Database

Multiversum, a new innovative blockchain technology platform, has created a fourth generation blockchain. Instead of creating a single blockchain, Multiversum has created a Crypto Relational Database that forms chains of data that are flexible to meet the needs of complex corporate and industrial environments. Multiversum Visioner and Founder, Andrea Taini, stated:

“Blockchain is transformation in its technology. However, it is also limited in its application for complex corporate environments. We have taken the best of blockchain, addressed the commercial failings and generated a powerful, innovative solution with industry strength attributes.”

Multiversum can offer faster and more scalable solutions. It seeks to be more competitive by generating more flexible solutions to meet corporate needs in which complex data structures need to be organized in tables (as in relational databases). At the same time, those structures need to be validated and made immutable with blockchain-based techniques such as increasing traceability and security. The Multiversum platform applies blockchain functionality, without the legacy technical issues, to primary management of databases, application decentralization, auditing, security and reliability.

The Multiversum Pre ICO will run from the 1st of March until the end of the month, with the main ICO starting on April 4thFor more information, please visit the WebsiteInternational Telegram GroupFacebookInstagramLinkedinBitcoinTalkReddit and Twitter.
