PLUG frequently asked questions
What is PLUG?
PLUG is a next-generation framework for building business-ready, blockchain-based products and services. The PLUG framework allows you to build blockchains that can interact with:
- Other blockchains
- Existing systems
The PLUG mainnet is a network that provides a disintermediation layer between blockchain-based services, allowing them to interact with identity, value, and information across the boundaries of individual blockchain networks.
What have you learned from Bitcoin, Ethereum and other public blockchains?
Similarly, we see the issues with trying to create a new programming language, Solidity, for Ethereum and have taken to heart the security, usability, and scalability issues that initial decision has caused the larger Ethereum project.
Are you ready for production? Will it be worth the wait?
Would you describe PLUG as a high performance blockchain? Why?
How did you manage to build such a scalable blockchain framework?
How easy is it to integrate legacy systems with PLUG?
We’ve found it to be relatively easy to integrate most legacy systems our customers have with PLUG. Rather than requiring an existing system to change to meet the blockchain paradigm, we acknowledge that blockchain technology won’t be adopted unless the blockchain layer natively integrates with what already exists.
What are the advantages of PLUG from a DevOps standpoint?
Unlike other blockchain platforms, PLUG is localised to its owners infrastructure and deploys like traditional software. DevOps will therefore not have to deploy a PLUG network any differently than they would other services like PostgreSQL or Nginx.
How easy is it to develop smart contracts for PLUG?
What industries has PLUG been used in?
Government, Capital Markets, Luxury Goods, Pharmaceuticals, and the list goes on. PLUG is increasingly used by a wide swath of users across many industries as more and more parties realise the tangible benefits of using PLUG.
