Alacris announces the alphanet release of Alacrity Domain Specific Language (DSL), a major step in the platform’s solutions for attracting users to blockchain by creating an end-to-end Distributed Application (DApp) platform for ease-of-use for any developer.
This demo exhibits how an application goes from Alacrity DSL, to generating a complete decentralized application using our Rock, Paper, Scissors (RPS) DApp. The entire process takes users through an all automated process from one single set of specs, one compilation step, into to a duly Formally Verified package.
“For simplicity we are showing a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors. Although basic, this demos…
In May our Co-Founder Chris Swenor had the privilege of being a judge during Boston Blockchain Week BUIDLBoston. This two-day hackathon was aimed to help “entrepreneurs, students and professionals from around Massachusetts connect, learn, and develop new ways to address problems that could transform the way in which we use blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT).”
There were so many breakthrough projects that really will impact the way the world does some everyday things in a more secure, decentralized way. There were 130 participants who spent 48 hours creating solutions via blockchain to solve real world problems from medication tracking…
Alacris announces the release of Legicash, a fast cryptocurrency payment scaling solution for Ethereum to alphanet. This represents a major milestone for the Operating System company addressing the cryptocurrency functionalities to attract users to blockchain by creating an end-to-end Distributed Application (DApp) development platform.
This alphanet version of Legicash is the first in a two-part release. Legicash demonstrates our Mutual Knowledge Base (MKB), which serves as a data availability network and Side Chain Scaling Solution, that provides the basis for fast confirmation of transactions on a side chain. …

Alacris is honored to announce that Dr. Jay McCarthy, one of the leading researchers in programming languages and verification in application to cryptographic protocols, has joined our organization as Head of Research. He will be responsible for the direction of development of the Alacris Operating System’s Domain Specific Language, Alacrity, that will drive the projects’ flexible usable language.
Currently, McCarthy is also an associate professor at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, since 2015, where he has been teaching and researching, funded by the National Science Foundation, in areas of computer science, software design, architecture, protocols and theory of computation. He…
Alacris, a Boston-based blockchain project created by LegiLogic, and 1kx, an early stage token fund, are joining to advance efforts in layer 2 solutions to work toward reducing the complexity of developing distributed applications using blockchain and thus create the opportunity for wider use of the technology.
Wide-spread use of blockchain technology is stalled due to issues with lack of scalability (both high latency and low throughput for transactions), lack of interoperability between blockchains and uncertainty regarding governance. …

Creating solutions for Blockchain and figuring out mass adoption of the technology is not your typical 9 to 5 task, but we don’t have your typical engineers. Matt Audesse thrives on finding the solutions of the technical puzzles posed by blockchain projects.
“Alacris in particular has set very ambitious goals for itself and the capabilities we confer on services which leverage it. I find tackling difficult tasks — such as those facing us — in an elegant and clean way to be hugely gratifying,” he said. …
Can you be in the present and the future all at the same time? Being at a hackathon is somewhat like that. Almost indescribable, but once you enter the Denver Sports Palace, you feel it. A building made up of about 6 open level “floors” winding where it almost seems like one melts into the other. Where you almost feel like you are always in the middle of the action. …

Position: Software Engineer Co-op (Intern)
Home: Dedham, MA; Ann Arbor, MI
Alacris is working to build a protocol so the average developer and engineer can create distributed applications without worrying about any low-level functions. However, another mission of ours is building future engineers, architects and developers to build the future of blockchain, at any level. We believe in trial by fire, just ask Lucy who describes her work at Alacris as “coding and asking questions.”
Lucy, 23, is one of two interns that will be spending the next four months helping to actually build Alacris…
