Key clients: 

Kode network (decentralized video transcoding on the blockchain), Fabrk.io (decentralized social network)

fabrk.io - decentralized social network Image

fabrk.io - decentralized social network

.We are helping fabrk.io, a new blockchain-based decentralized social network bring their product to market.

At a high-level:

- We contributed to the technical part of their whitepaper

 

- We helped them with their choice of open source blockchain software, on which to base their new blockchain. EOS was the choice.

 

- We are helping them modify EOS' delegated proof of stake

algorithm to factor in account 'importance' (as defined by a proprietary formula developed by the fabrk team) in addition to token balance, in the voting weightage process (block producer election).

 

- We are augmenting the blockchain data structure to include a social graph of an accounts connections. We are also adding an account importance mapping similar to account balances.

 

- We are helping them deploy and experiment with new consensus algorithms on an EOS testnet maintained by us.

 

- We are helping develop full stack proof-of-concept mobile apps based on ioS, Android w/ django backend API services that interact with our EOS blockchain nodes.

 

- We are helping them with Ethereum smart contract development and associated infrastructure and scripts to help them with their Initial Exchange Offering (IEO), ERC20 token, Vesting schedules, Time lock contracts and others.

 

- The technology stack involves NodeJS, Flask, the EOSIO blockchain, Ethereum smart contracts, iOS Swift / Android Java.

Kode network - Decentralized Video transcoding Image

Kode network - Decentralized Video transcoding

We are helping kode.network transition Qencode, their cloud-based video transcoding service into a completely decentralized blockchain based solution.

At a high level:

- Clients use the Kode ERC20 token to request and pay to have their videos transcoded by the network, via REST API.

 

- Jobs are posted to the Ethereum blockchain and bid on by anonymous nodes running the Kode orchestrator

software. 

 

- Orchestrators are responsible for splitting videos into chunks that can be processed by Worker nodes. 

 

- These chunks are distributed to Kode worker nodes, also anonymous nodes, running the Kode worker node software.

- Work is completed and presented back to the orchestrator.

 

- The Orchestrator assembles the work into a single output and provides the results back to the client.

 

- Kode tokens are distributed as payments to all the actors that participated in the Video transcoding job.

 

We essentially built the entire system starting from authoring the technical parts of the Kode whitepaper, to architecture, design and implementation. The technology stack used involved Python / Django (for the API and Orchestrator), RabbitMQ, Ethereum / Solidity smart contracts and C++ (for the transcoder).

There were 1–2 people working with me.

How did you come to work with Indra Crypto Capital?

How much have you invested with them?

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, nothing comes to mind.

What were your goals for this project?

Get Ethereum smart contracts ready in time for our Launch, Develop proof-of-concept iOS applications on top of the FAB blockchain, Modify / Augment the EOS.io codebase with a modified consensus algorithm and data structures.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Gautam and his team were recommended by a close advisor to our project, an engineer whose advice we put great trust in. We started with small project and were pleased with the level of professionalism, execution quality, speed and overall value. After the initial small project (<10k), we decided to move forward with a substantially larger one.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

We had a number of initiatives ranging from getting our FAB token and supporting infrastructure (Time lock contracts, Timed token release) ready for our Initial Exchange Offering. We also wanted to build a demo of a Social networking app on iOS in time for our launch to demo to a South korean investor crowd.

We also wanted to stand up and modify our own version of the EOS blockchain and experiment with it by tweaking their Consensys algorithm and blockchain structures. Gautam and the team at Indra Crypto Capital helped us with all of these initiatives with Crypto Advisory, Software Development and Testing services.

What was the team composition?

The team comprised of Gautam as the team lead, a C++ EOS developer, a Python Flask dev and Ethereum smart contract developers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

We were able to successfully conduct our Initial Exchange Offering in Korea and also Demo the app as we had planned. Gautam and his team covered us completely on the Software development side of these initiatives.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

My main point of contact was Gautam and he managed the project, the team and the delivery of final product to me. This proved extremely effective and allowed me to focus on big picture stuff and all the other initiatives we had going on the Whitepaper, Tokenomics, Research and Machine learning side of things.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They executed all of the projects really well, with minimal direction, taking full ownership of the work product and put in the extra effort to make sure we never missed sometimes unrealistic deadlines imposed upon us by our Exchange partners. Their availability for meetings and calls was quite amazing given the Time Zone differences.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I do not see any major areas for improvement. I just hope that they keep their skills sharpened as the Blockchain space tends to move fast and evolve as do our development requirements.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Founder / CEO. Phuketdirect and Findingdirect are travel portals to Thailand esp Phuket and Bangkok where people can book Villas, Hotels, Airlines, Cars and Activities. It aims to be like the Air BnB of Thailand.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Indra Crypto Capital?

I hired Gautam and his team at ICC to rebuild the website from scratch.

What were your goals for this project?

I was not happy with the quality of the websites and I wanted them redesigned with a fresh look and tech stack. I also had certain initiatives and business goals that my development team was not addressing and I wanted to get them addresses in a bid to drum up more business, Q2 2020 onwards.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Gautam was recommended to me by a friend and after the first phone call I knew he was he was very knowledgeable, professional, and enthusiastic about the project. He gave great advise and feedback and made sure I didn't make the wrong decision when came to planning the project.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Gautam and his team provided Graphic design, as well as Frontend (Vue.js) and Backend(Laravel PHP) development for the findingdirect and phuketdirect websites. This is credited to Gautam on pointing me in the write direction and couldn't be any happier listening to him. His expertise is what saved my project.

What was the team composition?

My main point of contact was Gautam. Other than that there was a Graphics Designer, a Frontend (Vue.js) developer and a Backend developer (Laravel PHP)

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

The website still under development and is progressing along quite well. However, I can already tell the difference as I'm able to communicate my business and feature goals with Gautam effectively and he is very good at converting those into results.Gautam solutions, timelines, and breakdowns of the project were not only accurate and clear, it's almost unheard of in this field. Their honesty regarding any matters or issues about the project is impeccable.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

I prefer to communicate big picture / vision goals with Gautam and do so via email. Internally, I believe Gautam and his team use Trello and Telegram for communication. He passes pages and works-in-progress for review to me and incorporates my feedback into the designs. This has worked quite well.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They really take ownership over the project and treat it like it's their own. We ran into issues with Malware, Email and other related Wordpress properties. Gautam and his team were able to step in, troubleshoot and resolve all of these issues while keeping the rest of the project on track and I"m not talking days or weeks, he solves issues in a matter of hours (depending on the issue). I've had some serious issues too and Gautam really tackled the issue almost immediately.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Honestly NO! I really cannot think of anything. Everything from communication, to execution, delivery and project management has been excellent.
