Even the company exists for several years, a recent Chromapolis project started to gain hype just recently. There are no marketing, whitepaper, webpage or social channels and most of the info is passed P2P way. That’s just the way how crypto seed rounds are done in 2018.

The Company — ChromaWay

ChromaWay started with the pioneering work done by Alex Mizrahi on original colored-coins since 2012 when he made the first implementation. Alex led the colored coins open source project until 2014 when he, together with Or Perelman, Iddo Bentov and Henrik Hjelte, formed Chromaway.

Since 2014, it appears that ChromaWay has been busy developing several products without raising money from a single ICO. They have SofiWay, a network for immediate settlement of payments which supports the development of E-krona, a digital currency project launched by the Swedish Central Bank. Another product is the Universal Identity Hub, a project that aims to connect women and families living in danger.

The platform — Chromapolis

Chromapolis will build their own blockchain where each new dApp will have its own sidechain with an expected throughput of 500 tps and dApps will pay hosting fees and will have to peg Chromapolis tokens. There are no transaction fees in the network but nodes that are used to run Chromapolis chain will get rewards in Chromapolis tokens.

Chromapolis dApps will be written in Rell, a programming language developed by ChromaWay which should easily be adopted by those who are familiar with SQL.

Distributed database — Postchain

Chromapolis proposes a blockchain where data is organized as a relational database which can be indexed, meaning it will dramatically improve lookup speed and overall throughput for dApps built on it. It will be deployed on top of the existing Postchain database framework, the first implementation of a consortium database uniting relational database performance and blockchain decentralized characteristics.

A Postchain is the first implementation of a consortium database. Postchain claims to be the first true consortium database that is: 1) SQL based; 2) Secure; 3) Flexible; 4) Easy to Use; 5) Tested; and lastly, 6) Enterprise Driven. A consortium database that is effective, safe and enterprise-focused could have huge implications in many pretty much every industries and market in existence today.

Chromapolis website, together with public WP and TG group is coming soon

CONCLUSION

The project is still in stealth mode and is just starting to get the hype in the crypto circles. Names behind the company are considered to be blockchain pioneers and together with well-known advisors, they are the main reason why the hype is building up with minimum information available. There are still many questions that need to be answered and hopefully, it will become available in the following weeks. Until then a deeper insight into the project is not possible.

We are keeping an eye on the project as there may be something more about the project at such an early stage.
