BlockApps has created a closed-source version of the Ethereum protocol in order to uphold the highest security standards for our users who may be unable to build production-ready systems on an open-source project.
Our product is designed to make it as easy as possible to deploy smart-contract based applications. The current Ethereum ecosystem is in its infancy, and our closed-source version of Ethereum allows developers to deploy applications much more quickly than is possible on the Ethereum mainnet.
BlockApps supports Solidity versions 0.4.24 and below.
BlockApps STRATO is available as a SaaS offering on Azure for the Developer Edition. Packages for production private and hybrid clouds are also available.
Yes, you can use BlockApps STRATO to create POCs and production grade blockchain applications.
Any developer with C, C++, visual studio, Solidity and/or Java scripting skills will be able to use the BlockApps STRATO to create Blockchain powered apps.
Companies within financial services, mining, manufacturing, travel, retail, e-commerce, SaaS application vendors and many more using BlockApps STRATO to build Blockchain applications.
Ethereum is a blockchain-based distributed computing platform, featuring smart contract functionality. It provides a decentralized and Turing-Complete virtual machine, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), which can execute peer-to-peer contracts using a cryptocurrency called Ether(ETH).
Ethereum is a blockchain based distributed computing platform, featuring smart contract functionality. It provides a decentralized virtual machine, the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), that can trustlessly execute peer-to-peer contracts.
BlockApps is a blockchain software development company. BlockApps STRATO is an extension of Ethereum, an open source Blockchain standard, to make it easy for developers to create applications in hours.
How is Blockapps different to development platforms like IBM Hyperledger, R3 or Chain?
IBM Hyperledger, R3 and Chain are first generation blockchain development platforms that are (1) static to certain vertical use cases (2) pose a very high cost of entry (3) and are difficult to use. In contrast, BlockApps provides an easy-to-use scripting language that enables developers to create Blockchain applications in hours.
A Blockchain is a distributed database that maintains a continuously-growing list of records called blocks. Each block contains a timestamp and a link to a previous block. The data in a block cannot be altered retrospectively. In addition, all records and blocks are confirmed by the network participants so all parties can agree on the shared dataset where no single party has complete authority.
Blockchains are an example of a decentralized computing system that can power an array of applications.
