Our Customers

GoodDollar

Brief customer description

GoodDollar is a 100% not-for-profit project nurturing an ecosystem of academics, NGOs, ethical investors, crypto supporters, and anyone who cares about reducing inequality.

The GoodDollar experiment is a series of tests with the ultimate purpose of reducing wealth inequality, using the blockchain technology. GoodDollar’s mission is to build a new, global, open-source cryptocurrency—called GoodDollar—to distribute money, using the principles of universal basic income (UBI).

Project Description

Protofire helped GoodDollar to create a crypto wallet that provides users with GoodDollar tokens daily if compared to any other digital token wallets. Users can access tokens without passing a test or fulfilling a work requirement, regardless of their income or employment status. Free and clear.

The wallet is based on the following principles:

  • Low cognitive load in critical actions due to clear and minimal UI
  • Providing timely information as required.
  • User-centered design

As a first step, our team of DApps and UI/UX engineers implemented an end-to-end proof of concept with a basic wireframe-style design, allowing GoodDollar to test functionality flows and gather early feedback from the community members. Featuring face recognition, a fully redesigned and extended version was built on top, receiving and claiming G$ (GoodDollars) in a straightforward and user-friendly way, as well as delivering a frictionless blockchain experience.

From the GoodDollar team:

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with the Altoros team, their engineers are communicative, project management is professional and has given us the predictability and speed we needed to jump-start the project.

0x

Brief customer description

0x is an open protocol that provides an infrastructure to enable the decentralized exchange of assets on the Ethereum blockchain. The 0x protocol employs off-chain transaction relay with on-chain settlement via its Ethereum-based smart contract pipeline. The ZRX token functions as a governance token that enables ecosystem stakeholders to coordinate upgrades to the protocol.

Project Description

Developing a solution from scratch using 0x can be challenging and time-consuming. Protofire and the 0x team are working on a reference implementation called the 0x Launch Kit. The Kit includes a simple, extensible 0x relayer codebase that can be forked or used as reference material to create your own marketplace. [1]

The Launch Kit addresses many issues and simplifies integrating with 0x, reducing the effort needed to add decentralized token trading to your project. The solution serves as an out-of-the-box and fully functional working reference for any developer or organization willing to launch a relayer in under a minute. The Launch Kit also features a neat and tidy UI, ensuring unsurpassed user experience.

The Protofire team has been working on the front-end project architecture definition and its implementation, finding out the best alternatives to user experience challenges, putting special focus on simplicity and ease of usage for newcomers.

Aragon DAO

Brief customer description

Aragon DAO is an administrative platform for decentralized organizations built on Ethereum. The Aragon project was born to disintermediate the creation and maintenance of decentralized organizations. Aragon helps to create global, bureaucracy-free organizations, companies, and communities, as well as collaborate without borders or intermediaries. Aragon is creating a whole stack of decentralized technologies that power governance mechanisms underlying decentralized autonomous corporations or (DACs).

Project Description

Protofire is working on the development of the official Aragon DAO Payroll decentralized app (dApp). The Aragon application will allow users to incorporate new employees (integrated with the identity and finance apps), request and pre-authorize payments in different tokens, as well as view all the payroll information, including historic payments, balance, and statistics. The DAO members/employees can manage and expect their payments to arrive on time, error-free, and containing the expected tokens (multiple currencies).

Under the project, the team at Protofire also tackled issues to improve both user and dev experience, with a special focus on integrating user feedback to create and improve tools for building new types of organizations with the Aragon stack.

xDai Chain

Brief customer description

xDai Chain is an Ethereum-based blockchain that uses USD-stable xDai (a representation of DAI token) as the native coin of the network.

The xDai Bridge is an instance of the TokenBridge that operates between Ethereum and xDai Chain.

xDai Chain is already compatible with BlockScout, Nifty Wallet, Status Wallet, and many more DApps.

Project Description

Protofire participates as a validator for the network and for the bridge, besides being a core developer of great part of the technology stack.

xDai Chain validators are independent organizations who protect the public value of xDai Chain by participation in consensus, governance, interoperability.

Protofire is proud to be among current xDai Chain  validators alongside MakerDAO, Giveth, POA Network (R&D) and help the overall network become more decentralized and secure.

POA Network

Brief customer description

POA Network is an open Ethereum sidechain with the Proof-of-Authority consensus reached by independent validators. The POA team is building a public network for smart contracts, combining speed, security, and cost efficiency. The team is also working on many other open-source applications for the entire Ethereum ecosystem, such as a Block explorer, a Cross-Chain Bridge, etc..

Project Description

Our team helped POA Network to develop a set of tools, which includes the Token Wizard, Proof of Physical Address, Proof of Bank Account, Token Bridge, Block Explorer, etc. We also contributed to enabling a single-click deployment of the network. More information on the Protofire’s contribution can be found in the “Humans of POA” section of this review.

bZx Network

Brief customer description

bZx is the first fully decentralized, peer-to-peer margin funding and trading protocol built on Ethereum and integrated with the 0x protocol. It is the first decentralized margin lending protocol on the Ethereum mainnet. bZx is not itself an exchange, but a protocol that can be integrated into the current exchange infrastructure.

Project Description

Protofire is working closely with bZx development team on both back-end and front-end sides of the project. Our team is helping to develop the integration of Augur with bZx smart contracts that facilitate on-chain margin lending, as well as opening, monitoring, and liquidation of token trades.

Protofire introduced a widget for quick integration of margin trading backed by bZx into any website. We also contributed to code quality by increasing smart contracts test coverage and incorporating linting into the development process, as well as migrated the development process to monorepo. In addition, our team devoted a lot of efforts to the project's documentation.

Project Description

Our team helped Etherisc to build the Flight Delay DApp, the first decentralized insurance application that automates the process of issuing policies and allows for getting instant payout in case of a flight delay or cancellation. Now, we are working on a decentralized insurance protocol that would simplify and enhance the development of insurance products.

Fairdex

Brief customer description

Gnosis is a decentralized and permissionless platform that caters to the creation of prediction market applications on Ethereum. Gnosis stands behind the DutchX product, a fully decentralized auction platform.

Through the Gnosis Ecosystem Fund, both Protofire and Gnosis worked collaboratively to further develop the DutchX ecosystem and increase platform adoption.

Project Description

Protofire contributed to the development of DutchX by creating FairDex, the first dApp of the trading platform. FairDex enables bidders to browse through upcoming, active, and completed auctions. In addition, bidders can monitor auction details and charts, as well as place bids.

This project proves the possibility of transforming complex protocols into usable applications.

By bidding through FairDex, traders always get a fair price for their tokens thanks to the Dutch auction mechanism. Even though auctions take several hours to complete, traders get immediate liquidity, while also reaping the benefits of a slow and decentralized auction.

With the creation of FairDex, the Protofire team provided the DutchX ecosystem with an open-source, robust, and easy-to-use web application, which places an emphasis on user experience.

FairDex has already become a key member of the DutchX family thanks to the ETH-DAI auctions campaign that Gnosis funded with $1.000.000.
