ADAPT - A Decentralized Application Programming Toolkit: Vision, Motivation, Architecture

Today's development of decentralized applications is most often based on using large generalized blockchain networks, such as Ethereum, EOS or Dfinity. ADAPT offers an alternative: a way to launch small independent blockchain networks customized for the needs of a specific decentralized use case. We will discuss the reasoning behind this choice, the questions of alignment between stakeholder (broken in the current approach), topics of decentralized code reuse, surface of attack, and miner incentives. The talk will take the audience through the thinking that leads to the design of the next generation of blockchain software.

Erich Schnoeckel, COO

Finturi is building a blockchain based invoice and inventory platform that gives SME's easier, faster and cheaper access to capital while still providing investors with an honest return.

We are building an innovative invoice financing platform that reduces overhead costs, lowers processing time, predicts risk and directly connects SMEs and investors. This peer to peer invoice financing platform built on blockchain’s distributed ledger technology is sure to disrupt the traditional invoice financing industry. We combine the power of new age technologies like blockchain, AI and DS in order to help businesses solve their cash flow problems in a safe, trusted and efficient manner.
