When consistency and stability is becoming more and more important in network, blockchain is emerging as a potential solution for this challenge. The network is always the focus of the blockchain for it is the foundation of all the services. It is still a challenge on how to improve the performance of the network especially in the implementation of a real blockchain. In this paper, an improved network for blockchain is proposed to combine different blockchain networks together. It uses POU consensus mechanism to make the blockchain network environment better, which consists of Proof of Stake Entrance, Hash Net Verification and Delegated Parliament. This improved consensus mechanism is used in Unitary blockchain network. It can provide stable and credible network services for business and related requirements.
