PeerStream Protocol (“PSP”), an Innovative Delivery Platform for Voice, Video and Data, Presently in Development for Blockchain Integration, Has Been Partially Integrated into the ProximaX Sirius Platform for Real-Time Testing
NEW YORK, NY, Jan. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- PeerStream, Inc. (“PeerStream,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) (PEER), a global internet solutions provider driving adoption of emerging blockchain technologies, today announced that it has launched the software component of PSP that handles secure and private point-to-point data and text routing. As a result of the launch, this functional component of PSP has been integrated into the ProximaX Limited (“ProximaX”) Sirius platform’s public blockchain testnet for developer access.
ProximaX is building a next generation blockchain platform and protocol enhanced with four major functional components: a decentralized database, a decentralized file management system, a consensus layer and a multimedia communications layer. Pursuant to PeerStream’s technology services agreement with ProximaX, PeerStream has agreed to license and integrate PSP as the multimedia communications layer of the final ProximaX Sirius platform, which is expected to launch later in 2019. PeerStream has been building PSP in parallel with the development of the ProximaX Sirius platform by its team. This code is now live on the ProximaX TestNet.
“We believe that this is a major step toward completion of PSP, and significant progress in the fulfillment of our technology services agreement with ProximaX,” said Alex Harrington, CEO of PeerStream. “We are excited about the prospect of showcasing the expanded capabilities of the protocol in the next release of PSP. We are receiving positive market feedback and interest in the integration of video and communication capabilities into ProximaX’s Sirius platform, and continue to work closely with their team towards a completion date later in 2019.”
