We are thrilled to announce that, after months of development and planning, we are thrilled to unveil the public beta for the Proof Dashboard on Blockchain. Proof Dashboard is an asset management platform for organizing, issuing, selling, trading, and purchasing assets ranging from physical valuables to documents to stock issuance of a company. As of now, Proof has been in closed beta with the partners of the Think Consortium on Blockchain, however, we believe it is time to begin collecting feedback, suggestions, and code from whomever may be interested.
Proof is a one stop shop for organizations to manage and deploy value with an added layer of immutable provenance. Furthermore, Proof can be used to build groups of people or groups of organizations and manage the flow of materials between each member. All of these features, and more, are backed our custom sidechain while assets can be deployed on public blockchains such as Ethereum using smart contracts or Bitcoin using the colorcoin open asset protocol. Similarly, Proof allows your organization to tether private chain clusters like Hyperledger Fabric, R3 Corda, and Monax Eris to your Proof organizations, allowing you and your colleagues to verify transactions on any chain.
For now, those are all just words. Why not just try it for yourself? All it takes is a name, phone number, and an email address.
As we hear suggestions from our users, we will be fixing bugs, improving UX and UI elements, and adding exciting features such as a smart contract maker, complex smart contract backed behaviors, an open RESTful API, and full interoperability between other blockchains. For more information on the platform keep reading or check out our whitepaper.
Proof is a blockchain agnostic platform and has been designed from the ground up to evolve-with and include future offerings in the space.
Achieving trust-through-trustlessness and Proof of Provenance via decentralized, distributed, ledgers is the primary focus of the Proof Dashboard team. Starting with asset generation and ending with transactions, the atomicity, lifetime, and veracity of your assets can be assured by a cryptographically secure set of addresses created and secured on an immutable database which tracks and stores data across nodes deployed on almost every continent. However, proof also enables its users to opt out of deploying on other chains and instead wire their account to a custom deployment of a private or public blockchain.
Assets & Accounts
At the core of Proof is its ability to create, trade, sell, and trace assets down blockchains. The management console has been designed with usability in mind and is constantly evolving with user feedback. The front-end team aims for a sense that proof ‘just works’ allowing users to stop fretting about the technicalities of blockchains and get straight to solving business problems and ameliorating pain points for internal operations and customers.
Assets can be created with a few clicks of a mouse while being placed on/off market, made private or public (internal to an organization or not), and backed by either a legal document or smart contract. Possible asset types include:
- Financial Instruments
- Intellectual Property
- Real Assets
- Legal Documents
Within each category are assets themselves which include and not limited to common stock issuance, debt instruments, ETF’s, copyright documents, patents, auto deeds, and the legal documents themselves which secure ownership and rights.
As of now, Proof allows for assets to be backed and placed on chain through the use of US Dollars, Euros, Ethereum, and Bitcoin.
Keep in mind Proof isn’t just for assets. The platform also features a robust organization creation and management system allowing users to create, join, and invite others to join organizations. Whether your company is an established entity looking to manage and record the flow of supplies down the budget chain or a startup looking to issue stocks, proof can act as a blockchain verifiable source of inner and inter organizational management tools.
Organizations are another piece of core functionality that proof will further expand on, eventually including budgets, inter-organizational funds, compliance help and much more.
It goes without saying that one of the most important parts of an organization is communication, and Proof accommodates this with a full featured messaging system allowing users to speak to other members of their organizations or members of other groups. It also features a marketplace for inter-organizational and inter-user trading of assets. Similarly, users can deploy hashes of documents recorded on the Proof Sidechain in order to solidify and verify agreements.
This is just the very beginning…
Proof is one of the first blockchain applications of its type in the world. Although other organizations are working on their own internal prototypes for blockchain backed asset management, there are fewer testing grounds better than the open net. As time goes on we will be hunting bugs and improving the site. Likewise, we hope to open up the asset platform api so organizations can incorporate Proof into existing systems. The platform is still in its infancy and we are confident that with your help, we can forge the standard by which all blockchain asset platforms are judged.
