About The Global Blockchain Summit
The Global Blockchain Summit, hosted by Wanxiang Blockchain Labs every year, has been one of the most influential industrial events in the Blockchain industry since 2015. In 2016, over 1000+ guests from all over the world joined the event.
Matthew (CEO) and Dylan (Head of Growth) will attend and participate at the planned Demoday on September 14 to showcase the innovative SettleMint platform ‘DataBroker’, a peer-to-peer marketplace for IoT sensor data.
What SettleMint hopes to contribute to the visitors of this conference
The concept of ‘smart city’ means many things to many people. In Dubai, this means making citizens happier while in Manchester, this means improving the quality of lives for citizens. In the 150 smart cities initiative of India, the focus is on engaging and empowering citizens to shape the future direction of the environment in which they live.
Irrespective of the local definition of what makes a “smart city”, one thing is for sure: smart cities will be directed by data.
At the event, SettleMint will showcase its platform “DataBroker”, a foundational technology for the data that will direct Smart Cities for years to come. The platform provides a direct link between data sensor owners who sit on mountains of useful data with 3rd parties interested in buying this data for their own use or to create value adding services for the citizens of their city.
While working together on blockchain applications for a large financial institution, Matthew Van Niekerk and Roderik van der Veer quickly realised that the promise of the blockchain technology far exceeded the boundaries of the financial world and would permeate industry and society entirely in the years to come. Simultaneously, it was very apparent that there was and is a huge gap between the capabilities of organisations that want to innovate with blockchain and the technology itself.
SettleMint was founded in 2016 to bridge the gap, creating a suite of developer tools that enable any enterprise developer to build blockchain based applications. ‘Mint’ encapsulates considerable R&D on the technical, operational and organisational aspects of this technology and packages this in easy to use developer tools that abstract away complexity. These tools are packaged in the form of modular software development kits (SDK) that contain smart contract templates, API layers, micro services and browser components.
Based on our R&D examining 500+ known use cases and the fully functioning blockchain based applications that we have already developed for clients, we estimate that ‘Mint’ covers approximately 80% of the interactions with blockchain technologies that are required to power these applications.
