What is iCommunity?2021-01-19T20:25:59+00:00

iCommunity is a Low-Code platform that allows the development and integration of Blockchain technology solutions as a service, in a simple, fast and economical way for all types of companies. We offer various pre-designed ready-to-use use cases, focused on automating and securing the traceability of the supply chain, documentary certification (contracts, academic titles, invoices, etc.) and registration and certified time control

 (of employees, subcontractors, consultants, etc.)

 

iCommunity means digital transformation through Blockchain.

What is a Low-Code platform?2021-01-19T20:26:44+00:00

It is a platform with which applications can be developed reducing to a minimum the need to program code manually. The platform is already developed and preconfigured, and it’s easy to use thanks to the visual interface and features that can be easily integrated through drag and drop, etc.

Therefore, professionals with a business profile and less technical knowledge can create and deploy business applications without complications.

Despite its simplicity, Low-Code development platforms (not to be confused with “No-Code”) often require some code-level adjustments to customize the models and adapt them to the specific reality of business processes.

 

For that reason, technical assistance may be required from your company’s IT staff or an external development service. For those cases where there is no staff available for this task, iCommunity offers an accompaniment and consulting service. We also have certified technology partners to develop custom applications if required by the client.

Advantages of a Low-Code platform?2021-01-19T20:27:16+00:00

The main advantage of a Low-Code platform is that it allows you to save time and money. 

 

It makes it easy to focus on customer ideas, and not waste time on technology development.

 It allows you to turn your good ideas into profitable software by simplifying the whole cycle, from development to deployment (usually in the cloud, but also locally) and future maintenance.

How can I access a product demo?2021-01-19T20:27:47+00:00

It is really easy,just fill out this form with your personal details and we will arrange a personalized meeting. You will have access to the platform and you will be able to use it for 30 days with no purchase commitment.

How much does it cost to use the platform?2021-01-19T20:28:22+00:00

We have different services and products that cover an extensive catalog and whose price may vary according to the specific needs of your company. Here you can take a look at the service structure, simply contact us, tell us about your case and we will advise you on the most appropriate service for your company. 

 

  • SaaS service: turnkey verticals with integrated use of blockchain, customizable and ready to use, on which certain adaptations can also be made. It is the ideal solution for those companies that have no tools or want to develop specific software.

 

  • BaaS service: allows you to integrate blockchain capabilities via API into any of your own applications (already existing or newly developed),

 without having to learn to program in blockchain or having to worry about the complexities of the technology, its future evolution, etc.

 

  • CaaS Service: is only valid to certify only training activities, such as; courses, conferences, webinars, etc. In this modality we offer the FULL service and “on demand”, so that you do not have to worry about anything, except sending us the data for which you want to issue the certified certificates.
How long does it take to develop or integrate a blockchain solution?2021-01-19T20:28:53+00:00

Thanks to iCommunity, processes are reduced to a minimum, depending on the use case and the service contracted. Usually within a few days you can validate the technology in your product.

What types of blockchain networks do we use?2021-01-19T20:29:21+00:00

The iCommunity platform (iBS) can be connected to several blockchain networks in a simple way to adapt to the needs of our clients, whether public, private or licensed.  Currently we work with: ethereum, hyperledger BESU, stellar, EOS and NEO.

What types of blockchain networks exist: public, private, licensed?2021-01-19T20:30:00+00:00

Blockchains can be classified based on access to the data stored in them:

 

Public blockchain: it is one in which there are no restrictions neither to read the data from the blockchain (which may have been encrypted) nor to send transactions to be included in the blockchain.

 They are easy to enter and exit, transparent, and built with care for operation in an unreliable environment. They are ideal for use in fully decentralized applications such as the Internet.

 

Private blockchain: is the one in which both the access to the blockchain data and the sending of transactions to be included, are limited to a predefined list of entities.

Both types of chains must be considered as extreme cases, and there may be intermediate cases.

 

According to permits blockchains can be classified based on the permissions to generate blocks in it:

 

Blockchain without permission: it is the one in which there are no restrictions for the entities to process transactions and create blocks. These types of block chains need native tokens to provide incentives for users to maintain the system. Examples of native tokens are the new bitcoins obtained when building a block and the transaction fees.

 

The amount rewarded for creating new blocks is a good measure of the security of a permissionless blockchain. They usually use a proof-of-work type consensus protocol.

 

Permissioned blockchain: is one in which transaction processing is performed by a predefined list of subjects with known identities. 

Therefore, they generally do not need native tokens. Native tokens are necessary to provide incentives for transaction processors. For this reason, it is typical that they use the proof-of-stake as a consensus protocol.

What is a SmartContract?2021-01-19T20:30:35+00:00

A SmartContract is a code that is implemented in the block chain. Each smart contract contains code that can have a predefined set of inputs/outputs. Smart contracts can also store data.

 

Smartcontracts are used to decentralize, automate and secure processes / agreements that involve two or more parties (people or organizations), since they facilitate, secure, enforce and execute agreements registered between them. Therefore, they assist in the negotiation and definition of such agreements, since they cause certain actions to happen as a result of a series of specific conditions being met. They aim to provide greater security than traditional contract law and reduce transaction costs associated with contracting. The transfer of digital value through a system that does not require trust (e.g. bitcoins) opens the door to new applications that can make use of smart contracts.

 

They can be implemented in any transaction that requires a registered agreement between the parties, such as, for example, the contracting of financial or insurance products, guarantee deposits, purchase and sale operations of financial instruments in the stock markets, syndicated loans, purchase and sale or rental of real estate, etc. Smartcontracts are usually composed by a user interface and sometimes emulate the logic of contractual clauses.
