Chinese cloud network provider Xunlei is collaborating with the Copyright Protection Center of China (CPCC) to build a blockchain-powered digital copyright identifier (DCI) system.

Founded in 2003, Xunlei is known as the BitTorrent of China. It provides a wide range of products and services across cloud acceleration, blockchain, shared cloud computing and digital entertainment to deliver an efficient, smart and safe internet experience.

Established in 1998, CPCC provides copyright public services including enforcing the copyright laws, implementing the copyright administrative system, executing the national copyright strategy, developing, and improving China’s copyright public service system. Its DCI system plays a significant role in the core infrastructure of the national Internet copyright public services.

Under the partnership, Xunlei will leverage its blockchain technology capabilities to support the operations of CPCC’s DCI system, particularly in the area of the copyright registration of fine arts and photographic works. CPCC will be utilizing Xunlei’s ThunderChain blockchain platform, which is designed to realize confirmation and interaction among homogeneous chains and enable multiple transactions to be executed on different chains in parallel.

Xin Lai, the chief engineer of ThunderChain, said that through this collaboration, CPCC uses Xunlei’s high performance blockchain service to make its copyright authorization and transaction system more efficient.

“At Xunlei, we are dedicated to exploring the practical adoptions of blockchain in various industries and sectors, and providing tools, frameworks, and guidelines for blockchain development,” Lai said.
