The blockchain is decentralized and will allow the company to earn profits is some use cases. Huawei is in collaboration with Linux foundation since 2016 and helps in managing the open source blockchain project known as Hyperledger.

BCS enables the client to unravel data transaction in order to verify the identity of the users.
