Hands-on research & education
Tech due dilligence & security audits
A comprehensive research and analysis service to examine decentralized applications. Our team of experts will analyse smart contracts, the frameworks that were used and third-party applications required.
Get a detailed report on all found issues, vulnerabilities and optimization potentials. Use our recommendations and risk assessment to improve your own applications or understand an existing project (e.g., before launch, investment or involvement).
Training & Consulting
Find out how to integrate blockchain technology into your tech-stack and products. Together we examine your business processes and determine where decentralized components could improve your system and increase efficiency.
Introduce your developers to blockchain technology and gain valuable inhouse knowledge. We will guide you through the best-practices for developing, testing and running decentralized applications.
previous work experience
Developed a prototype that merges the feedback from industry partners, legal experts and software engineers to improve payment flows and legal contract handling for building projects.
Cloud research project with the focus on adaptive and dynamic loadbalancing during run-time: Developed rebalancing algorithms and a description language for defining adaptation boundaries.
Created a prototype for the tokenization of energy assets from natural gas to show how a decentralized approach could improve the autonomy of each participant.
Developed an analysis platform and algorithms for wind energy supplier to detect failure probability by using machine learning to analyze wind turbines and coordinate predictive maintenance efforts.
Created a prototype for generating random numbers, documenting the number drawing process and making the whole procedure certifiable and tamper-proof by using blockchain technology.
Supporting IT migration to Amazon Web Services from moving the existing technology to the cloud and improving the resource usage by employing cloud-specific optimization of the infrastructure.
