SettleMint removes the complexity of distributed technologies for organisations. It offers modular blockchain middleware solutions that enable organisations to focus on their front end applications and customer experience while SettleMint’s middleware connects them to distributed (ledger) technologies.
To demonstrate the versatility of their middleware solutions, SettleMint has created the following end user applications:
1. DataBroker, a blockchain based marketplace for IoT sensor data (https://settlemint.io/databroker/);
2. BallotBox, a blockchain voting application for elections (https://us2016.settlemint.io) and is currently developing a proxy voting variant and a governance use case of BallotBox;
3. Notary, a blockchain document registration and management application for notarial deeds (https://notary.settlemint.io) and is currently working on a land registration and title transfer use case application of Notary;
4. IdentiMint, a blockchain based self-sovereign identity management platform for KYC / KYB procedures during client on-boarding (https://identimint.settlemint.io/);
Case study: Travacoin – the blockchain revolution for airlines
Founder and CEO
10:30AM - Day 2
If a flight is delayed for a long time or cancelled, airlines based in, or flying through the EU are obliged under EU Reg 261 to compensate passengers for the inconvenience – up to €600 per passenger.
Airlines currently resist this or pay slowly, generating conflict and losing passenger loyalty and repeat business, while also creating big opportunities for intermediaries.
Travacoin is a Blockchain based crypto-currency that will use “Smart Contracts” to enable airlines to compensate and refund passengers. The payment will be designed in such a way as to incentivise passengers to reinvest in new flights and/or ancillary services.

Case study: Validity Labs – Switzerland’s first blockchain school
Co-founder and CEO
01:20PM - Day 2
Dr. Sebastian Bürgel
Co-Founder and CTO
01:20PM - Day 2
Validity Labs is a Swiss based premier education & consulting firm delivering high quality enterprise workshops to a generation of developers that leverage blockchain technology to improve how people trade, make contracts, build organisations and organize societies. We educate patrons so they can adapt early and exploit opportunities rather than being rolled over by the blockchain wave. Our courses, workshops and seminars provide hands-on education about smart contracts and the technology stack beneath it.
Case study: Boost – web development backed by blockchain
01:35PM - Day 2
UI/UX DESIGN and WEB DEVELOPMENT backed by blockchain
Case study: Dao Casino – gaming on the chain
01:50PM - Day 2
In online gaming there are three main points where the trust can be exploited in the games (PRNG determining game results) centrally manages user account balances, and distribution of value vs contribution of value (that is typical to any industry, music, manufacturing etc)
Ethereum offers a good technology to solve it, because that’s exactly what smart contracts allows us to do – automate parts where trust is usually concentrated. While traditional online gambling industry requires expensive and exhausting continuous regulatory checks and certification in order to make it fair, that only large established companies can afford, integrity of data and code that Ethereum allows to make it fair by design. One of the main reasons why anyone on the internet can’t, legally speaking, be a casino is there was no way to create casinos that can’t cheat. Even though, not so many develop for Ethereum, games are a very popular application already.
DAO.Casino team decided to utilise integrity of data and code that Ethereum provides to cover all three layers:
Fair games, incorruptible account balances (that is really a bonus that comes with Ethereum based token balances), but also automatic distribution of rewards to all the contributors. All of it enables a new form of gambling industry, foundation for p2p markets and better customer protection.
We would like to present some components that we have designed and developed so far: PRNG method, reward system and a test UI.
Case study: iEx.ec – blockchain based distributed cloud computing
02:05PM - Day 2
iEx.ec aims at providing distributed applications running on the blockchain a scalable, secure and easy access to the services, the data-sets and the computing resources they need. This technology relies on the Ethereum smart contracts and allows building a virtual Cloud infrastructure that provides high-performance computing services on demand.
We can now organize decentralized infrastructures and market places, where everyone will be able to rent its computing resources (CPU, storage, GPU, …), where the innovative SMEs which design Big Data and HPC applications will be able to sell them online immediately with the needed resources to run them, and where highly valued data-sets will be rentable with a fine-grain business model. Moreover, because the blockchain provides distributed consensus and resiliency while being fully distributed, we think that it’s going to change drastically the way we design distributed systems and applications.
Case study: ClearKarma – blockchain backed food traceability
Founder and CEO
02:20PM - Day 2
ClearKarma paves the way for end-to-end traceability for ingredients used in the food industry, linking you to everyone else in the food supply-chain, all the way down to the consumer.
