GoChain (GO), a blockchain platform that claims 1,300 transactions per second, announced Monday that it has officially signed Dish Network (DISH) on as its first enterprise node signer on its public mainnet.
We are extremely proud to officially announce leading US satellite TV provider @dish and #1 LIVE streaming TV service @Sling are both authorized block signers on our public mainnet. We look forward to working with their team of developers! 🛰👉🏻 https://t.co/KVn8WVmtU8

According to the announcement, GoChain’s Proof-of-Reputation (PoR) consensus algorithm relies on reputable validators, making Dish Network the ideal member to sign blocks. This form of consensus allows for a fast and scalable blockchain platform and is designed to have 50 enterprise companies signing blocks at scale.
“We are curious about new and interesting technology that may help us better deliver for our customers,” said Dish Network CIO Atilla Tinic. “GoChain’s approach is unique, so we’re giving our top-notch developers a chance to take it for a test drive.”
“DISH has always been a technology pioneer and we are extremely proud to have them as a Node signer,” GoChain CEO Jason Dekker said. “In the Enterprise world, trust and reputation are extremely important and having DISH join our node network is a vital first step in validating our approach.”
Sling TV, an American over-the-top internet television service owned by Dish Network, is also now acting as a node signer. Additionally, based on the node signer network map, KuCoin is also signing blocks.
GO is currently down 1.4% on the day to $0.028615, bringing the altcoin to a $20.2 million market cap.
