NEM Foundation, the developers of the NEM P2P platform and Tech Bureau announced the launch of a closed beta testing of the Catapult engine, also known as Mijin v.2. Partners, customers and individual community developers will be able to participate in it, according to a press release.

It is planned that a closed engine's preview for developers will demonstrate the technology, which will first be used in private networks, and then in the public blockchain of NEM. The creators also noted "unique smart contract plugins that allow you to create bulletproof digital asset creation, decentralized swaps, advanced account systems and business logic modeling."

Beta-testing Catapult will take place in three stages:

  • Phase 1: Catapult Developer Preview and SDK release
  • Phase 2: Evaluation release of Catapult Core Engine
  • Phase 3: Dual-licensing of Catapult in both Open Source and Commercial licenses

We’re proud to partner with Tech Bureau, as we believe the new Catapult blockchain technology platform is the future standard for mainstream enterprise and organizational infrastructures. Catapult is more than just an improvement to the NEM Blockchain. It is an industry milestone that opens up new capabilities for blockchain database functionality.

In addition to improving speed and scalability, Catapult will also offer aggregated transactions and accounts with multi-level multi-signatures. According to the developers, such a functional was not previously presented in any of the existing blockchains.

Unibright and NEM to Join Forces

The platform for integrating the blockchain into the business processes Unibright and the NEM Foundation announced a strategic partnership.

Representatives of the team Unibright said that the result of the partnership should be the creation of the possibility of generating NEM-oriented code in the Unibright framework and joining Unibright to the NEMsp service partnership program.

In addition, the partnership suggests:

  • adding NEM as a target of Unibrights automatic blockchain code generation
  • adding NEM adapters to Unibright’s integration plattform to connect NEM architectures to existing IT landscapes
  • qualifying Unibright as an official NEM Service Partner by training and certification through the Global NEMsp Network.
  • working together on common customer projects, case studies and proof of concepts with industry partners and clients

The NEMsp Network is a scalable and repeatable program designed to expedite the adoption of NEM globally while creating value for our partners. Companies won’t need to have any internal technical staff to be able to build on the NEM Blockchain because a project can be completely developed and deployed by a NEMsp. Unibright puts that development on an even higher level by generating code automatically, and thus are a perfect fit to the NEMsp network. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Unibright.
