[Case Study] Token Design

Overview

A US based security startup, commissioned Decentral Solutions to design an end-to-end digital identity solution that would enable customers to validate and share identity information. Traditionally this would involve sending ID documents over insecure channels (e.g. email) and expensive KYC and compliance processes. The client had a very tight timeframe for development.

Solution

Within a few months Decentral Solutions developed an end-to-end solution supporting KYC providers, issuers, 3rd party application developers, and end-users. Our team started by designing a backend for issuers allowing them to validate individual information and generate digital certificates. The backend relied on an HSM (Hardware Security Module) for digital signing of certificates.

[Case Study] Public Capped Sale

Overview

A Startup Incubator based in Silicon Valley faced a recurring challenge centered around getting their incubatee companies to scale. Decentral Solutions started an engagement centered around a blockchain solution to decentralized content creation.

Solution

Over the span of multiple weeks our team worked to make a broad, multi-faceted problem into a specific one. First we let the client fully define the problem in terms of his scope of expertise, which was building and scaling small startups. From those requirements we were able to provide a prototype whitepaper that details the necessary blockchain protocols needed to solve the content creation problem in each subdomain.

[Case Study] Smart Contract Audit Process

Overview

Decentral Solutions has worked with many customers to evaluate the security of their products and engineering practices. Smart contracts provide a way to programatically govern relationships between one or more entities without the need for a middleman. The security implications of this new paradigm are far reaching, leading to new classes of vulnerabilities in code. Vulnerabilities in smart contracts have cumulatively cost the cryptocurrency ecosystem hundreds of millions of dollars in losses. We help to identify security flaws in your contracts before they are deployed into a production environment.

Solution

Decentral Solutions sits down with the clients engineering team to understand their business, architecture, existing code base, engineering practices, etc.

We then write a detailed threat model including data flow diagrams, list of potential threats (details listed below), and mitigations. Finally we assisted customers in implementing changes to their code and their engineering practices to close the gaps.

Devcon 3 was a 4 day conference where the latest and greatest minds on Ethereum gathered to discuss the most up to dates methodologies, technologies, and regulations that impact the Ethereum ecosystem.

Thankfully even if you didn’t attend, all of the content is streamed online but in disparate places. I’ve organized them by topic and timestamp so it’s organized all in one place.
