Syntropy in July: Starlink Test Results, Blockchain Integrations, Gaming Integration and more

At Syntropy, we continue pushing towards the inevitable future of everything being connected to Syntropy., and it’s time to review what we achieved over the last month.

Major highlights include:

  • The first DeWeb Hackathon was a success. We received submissions that used Syntropy to improve security, gaming, and blockchain node deployments — find the submissions here.
  • Our team has completed the first round of testing, verifying several ways Syntropy and Starlink can work together. Find the testing results here.
  • FiveM users can now secure game-play with better performance upon network launch. Read more about the integration here.
  • Ethereum 2.0 nodes can now use Syntropy to build a more secure Ethereum infrastructure. Read more about the integration here.
  • Bitcoin node runners can use Syntropy Stack to create and manage their infrastructure more efficiently than ever before, with immediate security advantages. Read more about the integration here.

DeWeb Virtual Hackathon 2021

Hackathon participants successfully managed to utilize and integrate into the Syntropy ecosystem (Platform, Agent, Windows Application, etc.) and submitted some exciting projects for us to evaluate.

MC Panel took home first place with their unique and well-executed idea for Minecraft servers. This team of two managed to create a new software utilizing Syntropy Stack that allows users to create and manage Minecraft servers with a couple of clicks, also securing the connection with the help of Syntropy Agent.

This project solves a massive headache for gamers, who can now create their own secure, fast servers within minutes through MC Panel. They were well worth the first place with solid documentation, a unique approach, and robust code.

Syntropy & Starlink: Testing Results

Could Syntropy’s smart-routing technology reduce latency and improve performance using Starlink’s network?

To answer this question, we needed to run thousands of tests, cross-checking results across multiple variables, including time of day, route path, intermediary provider, and ground station. While these results are still preliminary, we are excited to share that we verified several ways Syntropy and Starlink could work together to improve global internet access and performance.

Our first tests focused on long-haul routes. We wanted to quickly check the performance of connections when traffic travels across the globe.

It’s not surprising to see Syntropy technology improve latency across long haul routes, as we’ve heavily validated this use case in the past. Long haul routes typically have the longest distance to travel and the most “hops” until the end destination, resulting in increased optimization opportunities.

The ability to produce short haul optimizations is more impressive. Yet again, our testing showed that Syntropy could optimize Starlink’s network even when data travels within the same geographical region.

After researching and testing Starlink across thousands of paths, the results were more promising than expected. Latency, jitter, and packet loss can all be improved by combining Syntropy and Starlink.

Blockchain and gaming integrations

In July, we presented three more Syntropy Stack integrations. Integrating Syntropy with other applications like gaming universes or blockchain networks provides real-time validation that our tech can improve speed, uptime, and security for millions of users, opening the doors for more partners, events, and long-term demand.

FiveM integration

This gaming integration gives millions of gamers the ability to spin up optimized, encrypted-by-default gaming experiences on FiveM, a modification for Grand Theft Auto V enabling you to play multiplayer on customized dedicated servers.

Ethereum 2.0 integration

This integration allows anyone to set up a secure Ethereum 2.0 node using Syntropy Stack. It will help exchanges, on-chain data analysts, node runners, and more set up a stable, fully monitored Ethereum 2.0 node with improved security.

Bitcoin integration

This integration allows Bitcoin node runners to create and manage their infrastructure more efficiently than ever before, with immediate security advantages. Performance benefits like reduced latency and higher uptime will arrive upon full network launch and integration with the rest of our tech stack.
