AstraKode Blockchain Platform
What is AstraKode Blockchain?
AstraKode Blockchain is a low-code blockchain development platform that allows developers and enterprises to quickly build and deploy blockchain applications and solutions. It features a Network Composer on Hyperledger Fabric and a Smart Contract IDE in Solidity and Hyperledger Fabric.
Do I need to be a blockchain specialist to use AKB?
No, one of the biggest benefits of AKB is that it facilitates and accelerates the adoption of blockchain. It empowers business professionals without technical expertise to incorporate our No-code applications into their routine tasks effortlessly. In addition, our Low-code platform allows IT teams to incorporate blockchain features into their existing digital solutions without requiring specialized blockchain training.
Can I use AstraKode Blockchain to develop blockchain applications without any programming experience?
AstraKode Blockchain is designed for both experienced developers and beginners. It has a low-code development environment that allows developers with no programming experience to build blockchain applications quickly and easily.
What's the difference between AKB and other blockchain development platforms?
There are several differences between AstraKode Blockchain (AKB) and other blockchain development platforms:
1) AKB is primarily focused on enterprise blockchain solutions.
2) AKB is an all-in-one platform, meaning that it aims to tackle the full enterprise blockchain solution development cycle. However, any functionality can also be utilized standalone.
3) Through its easy-to-use visual development environments, AKB provides an unprecedented level of abstraction to (blockchain) network and smart contract development. This means that the platform not only functions as a productivity tool for domain experts but also as an enabler for citizen developers.
What blockchain technology is the platform based on?
Does AstraKode Blockchain support other blockchain platforms besides Hyperledger Fabric and Solidity?
At the moment, AstraKode Blockchain only supports Hyperledger Fabric and all the EVM-compatible blockchain. However, we will implement other types of blockchain (Algorand, Corda)
Can I use AstraKode Blockchain for both private and public blockchain networks?
At the moment you can only configure private blockchain networks.
Is AstraKode Blockchain open-source?
AstraKode Blockchain is not open-source, but it offers a freemium version, and its pricing is affordable and flexible.
Who is the owner of the data and where is it stored?
Your data in our services is always controlled and owned by you. Admin users have full control on how to store and share their data including data that is verified by a blockchain network and/or part of a digital asset.
How can I learn to use the platform?
Upon registration, you’ll be taken on an automated tour that provides a comprehensive overview of the platform’s features and functionalities. Additionally, we offer AstraKode Wiki, a dedicated educational space that provides detailed documentation on how to best leverage the platform. The wiki is organized around the two main development environments offered by the AstraKode Blockchain Platform: the Network Composer and the Smart Contract IDE, making it easy to navigate and find the information you need.
Does AstraKode Blockchain provide any documentation or support?
Yes, AstraKode Blockchain provides extensive documentation and support, including tutorials, developer resources, and a dedicated support team. You may find detailed documentation on how to use AstraKode Blockchain platform on our dedicated Wiki, and you may enter to our community on Discord to reach out to our technical support and community.
How do I know my network/smart contract is configured correctly?
Once you proceed with the network or smart contract generation, it’s accuracy will be verified by the platform and if there are any errors, these will be reported in the right-side section of the project interface. If there are no errors you can proceed with the download of the code or its deployment on the cloud.
What are your planned features?
To cover the entirety of the development lifecycle and thus provide our users with an all-in-one solution, we plan to introduce assisted testing and deployment functionalities. The first will entail both a dedicated testing suite and the automated generation of unit/functional tests, the second will establish streamlined pipelines to make deployment as easy as possible and where applicable integrate with third party cloud (e.g. AWS, Azure, etc.) or web3 “hosting” providers (e.g. Moralis).
Is AKB MiCA compliant?
The Markets in Crypto Assets framework (MiCA) is set to take place in 2024 and we plan on being fully compliant well before that time.
Is there a mobile version?
AKB interface does not currently have a mobile optimized UI but all functions are accessible.
Are you open to collaboration?
Yes, please send an email to email@example.com or join our Discord!
What is Blockchain?
Blockchain is a distributed and decentralized digital ledger technology that allows multiple parties to share and verify data in a secure, transparent, and immutable way without the need for intermediaries. It uses cryptography to secure and verify transactions and creates a permanent record of all transactions that cannot be altered or deleted.
What is Hyperledger Fabric?
Hyperledger Fabric is an enterprise-grade permissioned distributed ledger technology (DLT) platform developed by the Linux Foundation that allows for the creation of private blockchain networks with configurable consensus protocols, smart contract capabilities, and granular access control.
What is a permissioned blockchain?
A permissioned blockchain is a blockchain in which only a limited number of users are allowed to participate in the network. Permissioned blockchains are often used in enterprise applications where security and data privacy are a top priority.
What is a smart contract and how does it work?
A smart contract is a self-executing program that automatically executes the terms of a contract when certain predefined conditions are met. Smart contracts are stored on a blockchain, which ensures their transparency and immutability.
What is a network composer?
A network composer is a tool that allows developers to create, configure, and deploy blockchain networks. With AstraKode’s network composer, developers can easily create and manage their blockchain networks.
What is Solidity and how is it used in blockchain development?
Solidity is a high-level programming language used to write smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. It is used by developers to create and deploy smart contracts that can automate a wide range of functions on the blockchain.
What is a Smart Contract IDE?
A Smart Contract IDE (Integrated Development Environment) is a software application that provides a comprehensive environment for developing, testing, and deploying smart contracts.
What are the benefits of using blockchain technology?
The benefits of using blockchain technology include improved security, increased transparency, and reduced costs. Blockchain can also facilitate faster and more efficient transactions, automate processes, and increase trust and accountability.
What is a consensus mechanism in a blockchain network?
A consensus mechanism is a process by which the nodes in a blockchain network reach agreement on the state of the ledger. Consensus mechanisms ensure that all nodes in the network agree on the state of the ledger, even if some nodes are malicious or unreliable.
What are some of the challenges associated with using a blockchain?
Some of the challenges associated with using a blockchain include scalability, interoperability, regulatory compliance, and complexity. Additionally, the technology is still relatively new and evolving, so there is a learning curve associated with it.
