The powerful Proxeus project is led by Antoine Verdon, one of Switzerland’s most successful young entrepreneurs – and that Proxeus was funded for 25m USD in just two days in a silent ICO, then won the 2018 Swiss Fintech Award just a month later is hardly a surprise.
Proxeus solutions meet a clear market need. With an overwhelmingly increase in interest in Blockchain solutions, Proxeus provide visual programming technology that enables absolutely anyone to program smart contracts. Think wordpress for blockchain.
Notable amongst recent accomplishments was the successful incorporation of Drakkensberg AG using the Hyperledger blockchain, a world first that was followed by creating a dApp in under 100 hours to issue certificates for the University of Basel’s Center of Innovative Finance (CIF) on Ethereum, making CIF the first institution in Switzerland to use blockchain to secure their academic credentials from fraud. Most remarkably, both of these projects were realized in less than a month.
The tool developed for this answers a question that is not handled enough. Is there an actual need for a blockchain solution? Two tools have been created – one that the university staff can use to create the certificate and register it to the blockchain with its unique hash. The second tool is publicly available, allowing anyone to verify that the electronic document has been issued by the university, and that the content is accurate.
