Stratis Identity iOS Release


Today, we are proud to release the free Stratis Identity app for Apple iOS devices. Built on top of the Stratis platform, this showcases personal and corporate identity management capabilities on the Stratis blockchain. The Stratis Identity app delivers a real use case for users to attest their identity on an immutable ledger and share that data with others.
Stratis CEO Chris Trew explains, “Mass adoption of blockchain will only come through simplicity, and Stratis Identity offers a streamlined way to verify one’s identity through popular social media accounts, using pre-existing Microsoft, LinkedIn or Google account information. Once one’s true identity is established through our app, a Stratis Identity can be shared securely without ever exposing any specific user’s sensitive personal data.
Stratis Identity app creates a permanent, unique record of a person or organization’s identity on the Stratis blockchain and provides permission-only access to that identification. Each online social media profile has information linked to it (username, e-mail, job title, etc.) stored by the account provider.
Key features of the Stratis Identity app include:

  • Creation of a unique Stratis Blockchain identity, registered and secured on the Stratis blockchain
  • Attest your identity by logging into a selection of social media accounts such as Microsoft, Google and LinkedIn
  • Proof of ownership of online accounts via sharing your unique public addresses and transaction hashes
  • Validate other people’s Stratis Identities using the built-in verification tool

The free Stratis Identity app is available for iOS devices using the download link below:

C# developers can now start building their own smart contracts in native C# and deploy them on the Stratis blockchain. This alpha release is the first smart contracts platform built entirely from the ground up in native C# on the .NET framework.
Stratis has designed an example that developers can follow on the Stratis Academy.
Release date: 16th May 2018
Stratis Sidechains
The Stratis Sidechains alpha release unlocked the possibilities of scaling the Stratis blockchain using sidechains. This was achieved using a Two-Way Federated Peg solution that enables cross-chain transactions to and from a sidechain.
Release Date: 27th June 2018
Chris Trew stated “Our Q1/Q2 2018 development roadmap was intentionally aggressive in terms of what we wanted to achieve. I’m proud of what the team has delivered, with the introduction of important updates to the Stratis Platform. The ability to run smart contracts and to provision sidechains opens up a world of potential applications that enterprises can build on the Stratis Platform. I look forward to seeing the creative innovations third-party developers will realise.”
Stratis is looking forward to the second half of 2018 and will be publishing the Q3/Q4 roadmap in the coming weeks.

Stratis Sidechains Alpha Release


Stratis are proud to announce the Stratis Federated Sidechains Alpha Release in C# on the .NET framework.
Stratis has focused on developing the sidechains infrastructure to ensure the product is easy to use and the most inclusive platform for developers and enterprises.
Enterprises can create their own sidechains whilst benefiting from on-going enhancements to the Stratis blockchain. Stratis Sidechains provide enterprises with the ability to provision custom sidechains with flexible modules such as consensus, block size and privacy; delivering scalable blockchain solutions.
Building sidechains in C# makes it easier to integrate into existing enterprise architectures and opens the door previously blocked due to programming language barriers. Stratis sidechains in C# builds upon the established .NET framework, language and ecosystem. Therefore, it is more readily poised for wider adoption.
Stratis CEO Chris Trew states, “Sidechains provide a means to quickly provision, sandbox and deploy a bespoke blockchain tailored to specific enterprise processes. Because Stratis sidechains remain linked to the well-established Stratis mainchain, enterprises can be certain their blockchain implementations will continue to benefit from enhancements made by our core team of highly-experienced developers.”
Sidechains improve scalability of blockchains, a long-running challenge of decentralised computing. Aside from leaving the mainchain free to exchange funds, Stratis sidechains make it possible to specify both the block size and block interval, increasing the number of transactions in each block and/or reducing the time between each block.
Sidechain wallets will allow cross-chain transactions for users to transfer funds between the Stratis mainchain and the sidechains. This interoperability feature enables interactions across blockchains while giving users the confidence that any sidechain’s digital assets will always be backed by the Stratis token.
Stratis is also working on enabling enterprises to run smart contracts on their respective sidechains which will be implemented in a future release.
To showcase this technology, we have created a test environment named Apex on the Stratis testnet network. The Apex sidechain interacts seamlessly with the STRAT mainchain on the testnet network. Users can easily participate in testing this technology themselves by exchanging TSTRAT for TAPEX coins.
You can now try out the Stratis Sidechains Alpha Release by setting up Stratis and Apex wallets on the testnet network and use them for cross-chain deposits and withdrawals.
To get started with Stratis sidechains, please refer to the below materials.

Stratis Academy Update


We have now completed the development of the Stratis Academy Learning Management System( LMS). The Stratis Academy LMS will combine both lessons and a Community Management System to create an environment where developers can learn and collaborate with other developers learning blockchain development.
The next steps are to build the core technical content and walk-through materials. The course content will range from getting started with the Stratis blockchain to developing applications utilising the Stratis Development Framework.
Community features like profiles, discussion boards, and groups, will allow developers to learn faster together with one another.
We are actively working on the structure of courses and the core content. This is the key focus for Stratis Academy going into Q1 2018 and we are certain we will achieve the Stratis academy roadmap milestone ontime or earlier.

Stratis Test ICO


Today we are excited to announce the launch of the ‘Stratis Test ICO’ which utilizes the Stratis ICO platform.
The Stratis ICO Platform is a secure, customizable platform for you to host your own ICO’s on the Stratis Blockchain Network. It has been developed from the ground up in C# and .NET Framework and is easily deployed within Azure.
Security is paramount; therefore, the platform does not store any coins or private keys on the hosting infrastructure.
The Stratis Test ICO is a demonstration of the Stratis ICO Platform to showcase the technology and product we plan to deliver to market soon.
This instance of the Stratis ICO Platform will be available for two weeks and we welcome your support in testing the platform and provide any respective feedback.
Stratis Test ICO
The Stratis Test ICO Instance is now offline.
If you require some $TSTRAT to participate, it can be obtained from the Stratis Faucet.
