BlockApp: Simplifying the Construction of Smart Contracts

A smart contract as the name suggests is a smart legal contract or an agreement between parties that takes special action to eliminate the need for a third party. But, have you ever worked directly with uploading a solidity contract and interacting with their abi? If so, did you ever wonder why things were so complicated? Can there be a platform that can simplify the construction of networks by deploying smart contracts in the production phase? If blockchain is indeed the future and Ethereum – one of its primary ecosystems, is a simple way of doing things.

To reduce the level of difficulty working with the blockchain and to make it a seamless process,

an extension was designed. This included the integration of Solidity and Smart Contracts, which works with Ethereum and Visual Studio. Once Visual Studio receives the source for the contract with the user’s address, it will post it to the block server. The default browser was then able to dynamically create the HTML page of the smart contract, which would then be deployed. Upon entering the password for the block server, the transaction can be performed successfully.

BlockApps:

BlockApps came up with a quick solution to the problem of building a private network and deploying smart contracts by offering SaaS on Azure for the developer version. This is where BlockApps steps into the tool suite, specifically BlockApps-Rest. BlockApps-Rest is a very lightweight, high-level JavaScript wrapper around Strato-API, BlowServer, and Cirrus services that enables rapid development of front-end applications. There are other tools that work for the same purpose such as truffle, mist wallet and online solidity compiler.

                   There were some issues encountered while working with him:

# Truffle:

Debugging is a serious concern. Even if a single character is missed, normal debug messages do not show an error. It becomes difficult to work because the compilation takes a long time. There is no easy way to catch an exception or identify where the exception was raised. Therefore, if you write a large solidity file, it will be really difficult to detect errors.

# Online Solidity Compiler:

Computing power is required a lot because for every edit, revalidation occurs. Issues of setting gas prices and supporting some Git-Hub libraries are also of concern. BlockApps resolves these issues very efficiently. It provides good debugging with the enhanced feature of creating .bin and .sol files. In addition, contracts are deployed directly on the test network.

The BlockApps STRATO platform added a new wing to the usability by introducing cirrus. Cirrus enables users to uncover important smart contract business data using a simple RESTful API that accepts SQL style query criteria. Cirrus works as a search tool by indexing smart contract business data in real time and exposing it via RESTful APIs that accept other camera queries. Cirrus Smart Contract provides seamless reporting capabilities by indexing business data and storing it in a Postgrequl database.

The Way Ahead.

The scalability, security and flexibility of using BlockApp will definitely benefit organizations. The convenience of interoperability with enterprise applications via the REST API will create real-time insights into smart contracts and make development easier. The possibilities of leveraging blockchain as a service will bring standards-based blockchain technologies to full production in the coming years.

Provide a more compelling experience:

As already mentioned, the ‘imagination gap’ between a customer and the decision to buy a product online has always been wide. Although online shopping offers a huge inventory of convenience and products, the conversion rate (2% to 4%) is still lower than that of a brick and mortar retailer. It is clear that photos and even video content is not enough to help the customer in his indecision.
