Blockchain Development

Blockchain is a new and exciting alternative to traditional databases utilized for creating, reading, updating and deleting records. It is slightly different in the way that instead of storing these records on one database these records are stored on multiple databases across the globe.

High Quality Data

Blockchain data is complete, consistent, timely, accurate and widely available. Users are empowered by being in control of all of their information and transactions.

Transparency + Immutability

Changes to public blockchains are publically viewable by all parties creating transparency, and all transactions are immutable, meaning they cannot be altered or deleted.

Lower Transaction Costs

By eliminating intermediaries and overhead costs for exchanging assets, blockchains have the potential to greatly reduce transaction fees, with the added bonus of faster transactions.

What Is Blockchain?

The blockchain is an undeniably ingenious invention – the brainchild of a person or group of people known by the pseudonym, Satoshi Nakamoto. By allowing digital information to be distributed but not copied, blockchain technology created the backbone of a new type of internet. Originally devised for the digital currency, Bitcoin, the tech community is now finding other potential uses for the technology.

The blockchain is an incorruptible digital ledger of economic transactions that can be programmed to record not just financial transactions but virtually everything of value. All transactions are passed to the network regardless of whether the transaction is legitimate or not.
Picture a spreadsheet that is duplicated thousands of times across a network of computers. Then imagine that this network is designed to regularly update this spreadsheet and you have a basic understanding of the blockchain.
Information held on a blockchain exists as a shared — and continually reconciled — database. This is a way of using the network that has obvious benefits. The blockchain database isn’t stored in any single location, meaning the records it keeps are truly public and easily verifiable

Blockchain Use Cases

Digital Currencies

  • Digital currencies are a new type of currency, available in digital form
  • These ‘digital’ or ‘crypto’ currencies have similar properties to their physical counterpart, but with the benefits of the underlying cryptocurrency system, such as fast, non-reversible transactions without an intermediate party, or borderless transfer of ownership
  • The blockchain is the underlying technology for many ‘digital’ or ‘crypto’ currencies

Real Estate Records

  • Real estate, traditionally, is a paper-heavy industry involving several third-party players, including brokers and banks.
  • The blockchain allows people to transfer funds, property titles, and data in a peer-to-peer manner that is digital and open-source.
  • An example of blockchain being applied to the real estate industry is Dubai Real Estate, who created the blockchain system using a smart and secure database that records all real estate contracts, including lease registrations.

Our Blockchain Development Approach

This process represents a general plan and particular detail will strongly depend on the feature list and project specification.

 
}

WEEK 1

 

Development Plan Preparation

Gathering the project's requirements and technical design documents
  • Feature set breakdown
  • Architecture proposal
  • Assessment of requirements
  • Mapping of dependencies and risks
  • Definition of technology stack to be used with clear justification
  • Meeting between all of the developers on the project to fully understand the features and potential future features
  • Preparation of the project infrastructure (repositories, wiki, etc.)
}

WEEK 2

 

Development Plan Review

Address all issues that are not yet clearly defined with the client
  • Address all issues that are not yet clearly defined with the client
  • Provide a comprehensive statement of work to the client
  • Development work packages clearly defined with timelines
  • Transitional client reviews might be agreed to be held at the conclusion of one or more work packages
  • The development plan is usually shared with the client to identify the deliverables of both Blockchain Reactor and the client
}

WEEKS 3 - 12

 

Development Phase

The main development work packages are carried out during this phase
  • As described in the statement of work, the main development work packages are carried out during this phase
  • This phase is intended to cover all functional and architectural requests, technology implementation and coding
  • Demo platform to be launched and all requested features confirmed
}

WEEKS 13 - 17

 

Test Implementation

Extensive testing and QA activities to be completed during this phase
  • Implement tests for all known attacks and threats capable of inflicting damage to the system
  • Once the platform is operational, confirm that risks are appropriately mitigated
}

WEEKS 18 - 21

 

Audit Process + Bug Fix

The final version of the code and platform to be delivered and ready for public launch
  • Technical audit to be completed and reported together with financial audit (if required)
  • All potential bugs or irregularities found during test implementation to be corrected and properly reviewed
  • The final version of the code and platform to be delivered and ready for public launch

Blockchain Development FAQs

Why do I need blockchain in my business?

Statistics say that six out of ten large corporates are looking to implement blockchain solutions in their businesses. The three main reasons corporates are looking to implement blockchain solutions within their businesses are those with the need for:

  1. need full transparency in transactions
  2. a high volume of transmitted information
  3. current dependence legacy storage systems

Do you do blockchain development proof of concepts?

Yes, of course. We are currently working with three blockchain POCs, two of which are being developed on the Ethereum network.

I would prefer to hire my own in-house team. Can you offer advice on this?

Hiring an in-house team with the expertise of the Blockchain Reactor team is going to be near impossible. On average, a new hire can take up to six months before they can start working on a new project. In the blockchain space, this is too long.

What are the timelines for building a blockchain project?

Projects can take 12 – 24 weeks, depending on the requirements specified in the feature set. Please see our general development process for more information.

What blockchain projects have you worked on?

We are actively working on three large blockchain projects:

  1. An international banking solution for large bank transfers between banks in Serbia, Switzerland, Israel, and Austria.
  2. Tokenization of a cross-border parking solution.
  3. High-profile token-based global payments solution for brick-and-mortar merchants.

What blockchain frameworks do you use for development?

Different projects require different frameworks. This will depend on whether you wish to opt for public or permissioned blockchains. Our framework of choice for public blockchains is Ethereum. For permissioned blockchains, we opt for Hyperledger Fabric, Ripple or Quorum dependent on the project requirements.

Can I move from my regular database structure to a blockchain based set-up?

The key here is to have a gradual progression to a blockchain-based back-end. For large corporates, migrating entire systems over to the blockchain without good reason is foolish, as it is expensive and time-consuming. This is why companies are opting for proof of concepts (POCs) to ensure that blockchain can indeed improve their systems.

What are the costs involved in setting up a blockchain solution for my business?

This depends on whether you are opting for a public or private blockchain solution. If you are opting for a public blockchain solution, it can prove to be extremely expensive. For example, to save fifty words on the Ethereum network, it can cost upwards of $42. If you are opting for a private blockchain solution, these can be hosted on AWS, Google Cloud, etc. for reasonable prices.
