All of us at Attores wish you and your family a Happy and Healthy Holiday and New Year!
Before we close off 2016 and begin celebrating the New Year- let’s take a little look back to some of the highlights for us in 2016.
After discussing market opportunities and our interests for several months we begin work on the Attores platform- making it easier for people to create, deploy and use smart contracts and blockchain technology.
With the help of Angel’s Gate Advisory, Attores was awarded a S$50,000 by the National Research Foundations iJam Grant system for our blockchain smart contract platform. We begin work on the initial prototype utilizing smart contract templates for swapping digital assets on the ethereum blockchain.
Version 0.1 of the smart contract swap code is released as open source- this allows user to swap the digital asset DGD for ether- the code acts as both the escrow system and the clearing mechanism. Soon after a second contract is released for the swap of DGX a token representing fully allocated digital gold for ether. Ether is the native cryptocurrency on the Ethereum blockchain.
Gaurang is the first in the world to put a prenup agreement into a smart contract. He open sources the code and the news sites go nuts!
For his greatly appreciated work at Attores Gaurang is officially drawn as a Unicorn. Unfortunately, no requests are made to purchase copies of the artwork and we continue work on the platform.
Mainstream News Feature
Attores receives our first feature in a mainstream newspaper. We do our best to smile wide for the camera and several more articles appear over the next months. ‘FinTech’ and blockchain is gaining massive attention by the media.
Digital Certificates Launched
The first Certificate of Accomplishment is deployed by a local non-profit society ACCESS for it’s blockchain course using the Attores platform. Using smart contracts and blockchain you can prove when and by whom the certificate was issued by, and it will be available as long as the blockchain exists.
Also of note is Gaurang’s destruction of
Tokyo during the Tech-in-Asia conference a few days later. The two are unrelated.
In a first for the world, the Attores platform was used for a 6 person in-person MOU signing at Byte Academy, which was recorded onto the blockchain.
Our swap contract technology is recognized for an award by the Monetary Authority of Singapore. Although we do not win the award, we are greatly honored to be selected from the hundreds of applications- we also have the opportunity to meet the MD of MAS and the Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore.
As per the terms in Gaurang’s smart contract prenup- his wedding day of December 10 activates the functions of the code.
Looking forward to what 2017 has in store!
