ArcBlock Releases DApp and Decentralized Identity Developer Testing Tool to Simplify Development of Blockchain Apps
June 17, 2019 – Bellevue, WA
ArcBlock, a leading blockchain application platform, and ecosystem has released the DApps Workshop, an easy to use developer tool that gives developers, businesses and product managers an easy way to build prototypes and POCs to validate different DApp and decentralized identity scenarios. Before writing a single line of code, developers can simulate an application that includes different authentication standards, use of a mobile wallet to log in or easily build transaction models to simulate different transfer scenarios that help validate a specific use case.
With this launch, the new DApps Workshop solves a very important problem for blockchain developers – how to test and validate the use of decentralized identity in an application scenario. For example, how can a developer easily test the use of a decentralized identity mobile wallet to login to an app, or how to validate transactional activity including the transfer of assets between users and more easily without costly development or writing code.
Starting today, the new DApps Workshop allows anyone to easily build their POC in just a few minutes to test and experience different decentralized identity authentication and transaction scenarios for Forge-built applications without needing to write any lines of code saving time, developer hours and making it easy to immediately validate a use case.
Some of the supported activities in the DApps Workshop include:
- Trade-related transactions
- Prebuilt workflows and process/rules for all supported Tx types including multi-transaction scenarios
- DID-based authentication including identity Types, DSA (Digital Signature Algorithm) algorithms, and Hash functions
- Configurable metadata
- Defining required claims including profiles and agreements
- ABT Wallet mobile authentication
“From day 1, we’ve been focused on creating a platform that helps developers build, manage and deploy DApps easily and making blockchain more accessible to a much larger developer audience. Our Workshop is an invaluable developer tool that solves a real problem for any app builder. Today’s blockchain developer doesn’t have an easy way to test and validate their applications without writing a lot of code.”said Tyr Chen, VP of Engineering.
“By using this tool, developers can now work with business sponsors and developer teams to easily define, createand test different POCs that incorporate trade-specific transactions, claims and decentralizedidentity and mobile wallet scenarios locally without writing one line of code. What used to takedays or even weeks to test can now be done in minutes and hours.”
When ready, developers can then begin testing their DApps with users and other parties using their own test chains, and lastly, join the ABT Network to make their DApp publicly available.
ArcBlock is the world’s first blockchain application platform that combines the power of cloud computing with an industry leading blockchain ecosystem enabling developers to easily build, run and manage blockchains and decentralized applications (DApps). ArcBlocks blockchain application framework includes the interconnected blockchain network ABT Network, the easiest
way to build blockchains and DApps with Forge SDK and decentralized identity (DID) that powers a reimagined user experience where users control their data and are able to use any service, app, or website instantly. Combined together, ArcBlock is making the decentralized web a reality and giving users the future today.
