AstraKode Blockchain is a PaaS solution for blockchain network creation/setup/deployment and smart contracts development. This translates into two separate (but integrated) low-code visual development environments: the Network Creator, and the Smart Contracts IDE. Within the first environment one is able to design, customize, and deploy a blockchain network (initially Hyperledger Fabric networks and in later stages also the most relevant suitable networks such as Corda and Quorum), and within the second one is able to develop smart contracts ready to be deployed to the network (via a dedicated functionality in the Network Creator). Coherently with the low-code paradigm, such environments will be constituted by configurable graphical components and wizard-like processes able to abstract and automate many complex and/or painstaking aspects of development. Finally, next to the low-code environments, the platform will also host a dedicated community.
State of development
- Target customers are companies in sectors such as Services, Finance, Agri-food, or Logistics where the need for blockchain solutions is higher, and more generally those companies in need of blockchain development capabilities for themselves or their clients.
- AstraKode Blockchain's biggest added value is that it is an enabling platform allowing a fast, easy and cost-effective development and deployment of production-grade custom blockchain solutions. Additionally, the visual development offered by the two low-code environments not only enhances the user experience by providing smooth and intuitive workflows, but can also serve as validation and as self-updating documentation. Moreover, the built-in community features will enable both project discussion/documentation and easy information sharing between stakeholders, potentially functioning also as a knowledge repository on both the platform and (permissioned/private) blockchain technology that users are able to tap into for learning purposes.
