Consulting services on blockchains

Defining your strategy around blockchain is a necessity; from market-watch to leading research in distributed ledgers, our team in Innov-acts will help you pick the right direction for your company in line with your values.

The blockchain technology has already started being used in production. In the next few years it seems that it will become mainstream bringing in the paradigm of the transition to decentralized apps and the new Internet of Value. Defining your strategy around blockchain is a necessity. 

From market-watch to leading research in distributed ledgers, having a strategy means knowing where you want to be when opportunities emerge and standard blockchain implementations will become a reality. Our team in Innov-acts will help you pick the right direction for your company in line with your values. When your company is about to consider a blockchain implementation, we review it and guide your business or technical choices from an unbiased point of view. 

An example would be a company from the Financial Services sector willing to investigate a minimum viable product or proof of concept with a technical provider, but looking for a serious independent validation before proceeding with any contractual agreement. We can also guide you to choose the best teams to develop your products depending on its characteristics.

Monetizing on blockchain innovation

Having recognized the penetration of decentralized apps which come with the widespread adoption of blockchains in the new Internet of Value, Innov-acts is developing a set of innovative products.

Having recognized the forthcoming penetration of decentralized apps which will come with the widespread adoption of blockchains in the new Internet of Value, Innov-acts has already started developing a set of innovative products. Being currently in the phase of creating a minimum viable product and with a launch planning starting from Q4 2018 to Q3 2019 Innova-acts aims to be a pioneer by disrupting the market with the following innovative products: Blockchain based paywalls for monetizing quality content of media outlets: we are currently investigating and building proof of concept for a paywall based on cryptocurrencies (in particular ETH and XRP) that would let big media outlets implement micro-subscription models for their web readers and pay per view/reading of specific articles through cost-effective micro-transactions.

Anonymized personalization service e-retail: what if you own the whole set of personal/sensitive data and let them be used in third party services through ERC20 based smart contracts? This would bring you full control of your data while the choice of what preference you disclose, when and to whom is part of a user defined contract. Innov-acts is building a minimum viable product to be used in the global e-retail industry, where users are letting e-shops know about their preferences through specific, well defined and loyalty based disclosing of this information.

Integration of invoicing systems with cryptocurrencies: as cryptocurrencies will sooner or later start replacing fiat money as a mean of financial transaction, new technologies and implementation are needed for integrating cryptocurrencies in the billing and invoicing systems of a company. Innov-acts is implementing a horizontal, interoperable and seamless solution where various mainstream cryptocurrencies (BTC, ETH, DASH, ZEC, XRP) can be directly used in the invoicing systems of the companies.
