After the Hackoberfest which took place all October, NoCodevember is the event of the month of November. What is No-Code? It is a feature of some programs that can be installed, configured or used without the need to code. The history of No-Code began in the 1980s with the arrival of Microsoft Excel (on a Macintosh computer), which allows calculations to be performed on multiple cells. Spreadsheets will remain until today the best known No-Code tool, with Google Sheet replacing its ancestor. …

For the last months, we have been silent as something have been changing in the background. I’m not talking about a version 2.0 of Proxeus.

We want to let you know what is happening. Proxeus has developed a tremendous document workflow engine back by the blockchain. It allows to easily create complex processes to simplify the work of its user and also uses the blockchain efficiently to tamper-proof produced documents. That way, legal paper can be processed and followed along its life cycle.

The engine showed its versatility in behind uses to create university certificates or car sell certificate. But also more complex workflows like the one used by the Industry of Commerce of Zug. …

In September 2019, we announced the delivery of Proxeus v1 offering anyone the possibility to install and run an instance of Proxeus making transactions on livenet. Since then, several improvements have been made to implement recommendations received through a series of functional and technical audit rounds, and integrate community feedback. Today, Proxeus Anstalt has published v1.1 of the Proxeus framework as open source software. With this step, Proxeus Anstalt has achieved the mission it was entrusted with by the token holder community and will be winded down, while Proxeus will be becoming a community-run project.

Why Proxeus?

By enabling trust to be established algorithmically without a need for the counterparties of a business transaction to know each other, blockchain technology creates new framework conditions allowing innovative business models to emerge. Yet blockchain is largely uncharted territory and the technological and financial barriers to create those new models are still high. Just like Wordpress empowered companies and enthusiasts to create websites without starting from a blank page at the beginning of the Internet, the Proxeus project was started to make blockchain technology more accessible and shorten the time necessary to create and test document-oriented blockchain use cases. In essence, the framework can be seen as a bridge connecting two worlds and allowing on the one hand individuals and businesses to digitize traditional processes and register information on a blockchain, and on the other one to make blockchain activity visible by generating human-readable documents. …

After the release of Proxeus 1.0 in September last year, we’ve received questions, praise and improvement suggestions from the community. Some of the feedback concerned the user experience that the application offers or specific elements of the user interface design.

The product team decided to implement improvements in the user interface to give it a fresh touch before open sourcing the software. Besides the visual changes, we’ve also made it easier for our users to customize their own Proxeus platforms.

If you’ve been an avid user of the platform before, you’ll certainly notice immediately that the way we’re displaying lists — your workflows, forms and templates — has been cleaned up to give you a much better overview of your elements and the available actions. …

Proxeus made history by helping to speed up company incorporations in Switzerland to under two hours (find more details here). In a previous blog post we spoke to the lawyer Philippe Kaiser from Kaiser Odermatt & Partner who is involved in the project. To provide another view on the project we asked Ulrich Schimpel, member of IBM CTO Europe Team, about his thoughts and experiences.

Can you tell us more about the company register project and its objectives?

The project is about an end-to-end acceleration when you are founding a Swiss company. It’s not about replacing any party involved in such a process but it brings together all the pieces that are needed including notaries, banks and the commercial registrar. The objective is clearly to speed up the founding process to a few days compared to several weeks and to have a much better transparency across different players. …

Today we proudly announce that Proxeus joined forces with the Geneva-based Swiss Blockchain Institute. The Institute will be using the Proxeus framework to issue blockchain-registered diplomas as well as possibly adding the framework to its academic program in the future, enabling its students to quickly prototype and test their project ideas.

The Swiss Blockchain Institute opened its doors back in October 2019. As a training institution entirely dedicated to blockchain, its main objective is to close the current gap between the offer and demand of blockchain professionals. …

In past articles we explored Proxeus forms, smart templates and the document service. Proxeus workflows is where all elements come together — let’s take a look how they constitute the backbone of every Proxeus application by defining the process logic and connecting to various actions and input sources.

What is a Proxeus workflow?

A Proxeus workflow is a series of sequential steps that are carried out based on user-defined rules or conditions in order to execute a business process. …

The year is slowly coming to an end, a phase which gives us a good opportunity to look back at what happened in the past months and what’s ahead of us. As the American poet T.S. Eliot once wrote: “Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.”

This year gave us the chance to explore uncharted territory by deploying Proxeus in new environments, and to work with the community to gather and implement feedback in order to improve the product before and after the livenet release (v1).

Here is a brief overview of what happened in…
