Blockchain development company Cartesi recently released testimonials from eight companies working on The Blockchain OS, a decentralized layer-2 platform that supports Linux and other software components to provide a vehicle for developing decentralized apps. Cartesi intends it to be used by upcoming startups and new developers seeking to bring Linux applications into the burgeoning Web3 infrastructure.
Web3 is being hyped as the next evolution of the internet, which combines elements of cryptocurrency, virtual reality gaming, e-commerce, and social media based on decentralized data ownership and exchange. Generally, a good knowledge of blockchain development is required to build for Web3, but products like The Blockchain OS allow developers to build decentralized applications (Dapps) based on blockchain while still using familiar tools and interfaces from the Web2 world.
The testimonials being released by Cartesi are from eight businesses, including six traditional Web2 companies and two Web3 companies, that are building Dapps that leverage cutting-edge technologies such as machine learning, biometric recognition, decentralized games, and smart city municipal management systems.
For the Web2 companies involved, these testimonials detail their very first attempts at blockchain development, with little or no prior knowledge. They include Locus, a Brazilian company building a decentralized pattern recognition platform with machine learning, Vietnam’s Sotatek, working on a trustless ride-sharing app, and Productiv-e from Bulgaria, developing a decentralized battleship game that leverages blockchain to prevent cheating. Other Dapps being showcased include a multiplayer chess platform, online slot machines, ownership validation for digital products, and a public transportation monitoring system that can issue fines for late buses.
Web3 companies using Cartesi’s platform include Dakai, a New York blockchain firm that is prototyping a decentralized exchange (DEX) for Cartesi Rollups. Rollups are a layer-2 solution that aims to make cryptocurrency transactions faster and cheaper for network users. Taiwanese company Aetheras is also using The Blockchain OS to build a hybrid RPG/puzzle game.
