It can also be associated with blockchain platform through API module with Apache Thrift technology support.


Development process

During the Credits Online Hackathon you should concentrate on two main spheres:


  • Creating decentralized applications of diverse branches, such as banking, copyright protection, industrial and consumer goods, Internet of Things, insurance, logistics, payments and medicine. You can be inspired by some examples on the Credits website.
  • Improving useful infrastructure services, which will be of use for the Credits ecosystem like a blockchain explorer, a web wallet, a decentralized exchange, a hardware wallet, various cross-chain and atomic swaps solutions, escrow and so on.


Technical task requirements
