14th of October 2019 - Software Development and Roadmap Goals

https://t.me/unibright_io/148412


Dear Community,


Besides following our business development streams (mainly for tokenization), we will also target some infrastructural work this week, rebasing some of our development repositories, and fully automating our building, testing and deployment pipelines.
Sometimes, software development means to do something you have already done before again, to clean up, to document and to automate 😉
Personally, I like this work, because I see some code on my monitor which happens not so often since I became the CTO of Unibright (compared to my "former" life, where my main work was software architecture and development).

Question from Timo: Can the goals be achieved by the end of the year? The roadmap goals.🙂

That's what we are working for!
December latest we will summarize where we stand regarding our 2019 goals and will also add details to the future roadmap. That's work in progress 😉

Have a great week.
Stefan

 



8th of October 2019 - Tokenization, Development, Research

https://t.me/unibright_io/148215

Dear Community,


this week in short bullet points:
Tokenization: Meetings with German Bank aiming to tokenize parts of their real estate portfolio
Development: Working on a voting template and combining it with the multi party approval template
Research: Finalizing applications on two German research programs, together with 2 different universities

Have a great week!

 



30th of September 2019 - University Lectures, Masters and PhD Theses, Research Support Programs.

https://t.me/unibright_io/147886

Dear Community,

This week, we will wrap up some of the research related work, we have been doing so far. In the last 9 months, we established great contacts to universities, research facilities, and enterprise innovation departments. We gave lectures, audited master and PhD theses and prepared our participation in research support programs to be launched in 2020. We are we working on a blog post providing some more details here.

Please note that we keep our wallet solution online for another 2 weeks. There have been some days of downtime due to an Amazon AWS update, so we decided to give Unibright token sale participants some more time to move their tokens to their private ledgers.

Have a great week!

Stefan

 



23rd of September 2019 - Regulators, Asset Managers, Real Estate Owners and German Universities

https://t.me/unibright_io/147652

Dear Community


This week we will e-meet contacts from all over the world (Germany, USA, Israel) working in different fields that are relevant for our tokenization cases (regulators, asset managers and real estate owners).
Moreover we are establishing contacts to startup programs around german universities who need blockchain implementation.
Have a great week!

25th of September 2019 - Question from the Community

There are a number of blockchain sceptics who claim that the scope of usecases for blockchain is (very) limited. In many cases centralized databases are the better option for enterprises than dlt due to much lower costs, much higher throughput and other factors. With this in mind, does Unibright expect enough (near) future demand for it’s blockchain based business integration solutions as additive technology to justify it’s continuation of offering these solutions?

I understand that recently Unibright got involved in the business of tokenization. Is this, because there is (too) little demand for the other blockchain based integration solutions that Unibright offers or is it a nice addition to Unibright’s portfolio of blockchain based solutions that are already in (high) demand?

Stefan Schmidt (Unibright CTO)

https://t.me/unibright_io/147717

Hi,
a mixture of all these points is "true". So great question! Thanks!

In fact, this is exactly what we have been telling from the very beginning: A new technology needs adoption, usecases, integration. Nothing will happen over night.
Still, the potential of blockchain is way more than just being a decentralized Database. A database can not perform contract base code, that various parties can rely on, for example.
Our tokenization cases are not just a nice addition to Unibright. They hold many integration cases (to asset managers, to financial ERP systems, to regulators) and a lot of code (exchange contracts, tokenization contracts, KYC and AML solutions), so tokenization will be one of the first fields where blockchain shows his advantages.
Our Framework is prepared to cover all these cases.

Asking us about future demand of blockchain in general is a little bit of crystal ball, but if we were not convinced, we would not be working on it every day by developing, educating and showcasing.

Best,
Stefan

 

Marten Jung (Unibright CEO)

https://t.me/unibright_io/147719

Great input indeed Wu Wei, very much appreciated, very thoughtful.

That is why we started unibright.solutions too, to work together with customers on the question which part of their existing business processes can be put on blockchain on profit of DLT technology.

And of course, as Stefan started to point out it will always be about connecting off-chain and on-chain elements of business processes. So the picture of having every part of a business process transformed into a DLT representation does not hold true for most processes.

In total that is why we focus so much on integration.

Best!

25th of September 2019 - Update on Blockchain Minor for Hague University Students

Ruud Huismann

https://t.me/unibright_io/147763

Just finished a nice presentation/workshop at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. Second year in a row that we are a part of their blockchain minor.


Twice as many students compared to last year. Definitely the room was bigger compared to last year.

You recognize your work @ryutza ?

 

 



17th of September 2019 - Strategic partner meetings, Tokenization, Frankfurt.

https://t.me/unibright_io/147438

Dear community.
Greetings from Frankfurt. This week is 100% focused on meeting strategic partners for our tokenization cases. Great weather, great mood, great opportunities.
Have a nice week!

Follow up from Ruud Huismann (Ambassador & Network manager for Unibright)

Great Stefan. I’m meeting our students this week again. We will be covering blockchain in supply chain and STOs. Soon they will start contacting companies who might have an interest in blockchain.
For those interested, you can always watch our webinar. A great way to learn more about the basics of blockchain, especially in the supply chain industry.

Follow up from Ruud Huismann (Ambassador & Network manager for Unibright)

https://t.me/unibright_io/146913

Great Stefan. And just to add, as all of you know, last year Unibright was part of the Blockchain Minor at The Hague University of Applied Sciences in The Hague. Another minor is starting this week for about 120 students. I will drop some tweets at the kick off tonight so keep an eye out. 120 students means that the number of students has more than doubled compared to last year for the minor. I will be presenting shortly for the students and tell them about Unibright.

 



26th of August 2019 - Students, Client Consultations, Proposal Submissions

https://t.me/unibright_io/146627

Dear Community,

This week, we will have another event with our cooperation with the Technical University in Bingen. Students are working on templates for different voting processes that are settled on the blockchain. It is about Solidity coding, and on top creating an abstract model for it that can be used by the Unibright Framework to create code for voting processes for other protocols as well.

With Unibright Solutions, we have workshops with different vendors and providers in the data center space, here we mainly talk about Custodian solutions, which will also be very relevant for our tokenization cases.

For a blockchain use case competition (backed by the German government) we work on different proposals we will hand in until the End of September.

We are building, building, building (and of course educating wherever it is needed 😉)

Have a great week,
Stefan

 



19th of August 2019 - Follow ups, regulators, tokenization, partnerships & clients
https://t.me/unibright_io/146271

Dear Community,


This week there will be a lot of after work of all the meetings and calls we had last week.

One area is related to legal stuff, for example we will send out a mailing to all wallet.unibright.io users soon, telling them to move their ubt from our ico solution to their own private ledgers, as this wallet was mainly used for the purpose of the ico.

Other calls are with regulators, related to best possibly prepare our tokenization cases. Here we will get support by Ernst & Young, among others.

Continuously on our list are our tracing clients, libra and other partnerships we are currently checking on.

Have a great week!
Stefan

 



13th of August 2019 - Client & Partner Meetings, Tokenization Milestone
https://t.me/unibright_io/145985

Dear community.
This week seems to be the week of calls and meetings, we are using Skype, Hangout, Zoom and whatever fancy conference systems out there to talk to potential partners and clients.

From development side we reach an important milestone in our tokenization cases and will focus on integration tests and deployment tasks here.

Sorry for the delay, expect our next week's update on Monday again.

Best,
Stefan

 



5th of August 2019 - Libra Camp, Regulators, Tokenization, Partnerships
https://t.me/unibright_io/145545

Hello dear Unibright Community,

this week started with a student's project at the Technical University in Bingen, that we "host". Students will use and extend the Unibright Framework to get their hands into Blockchain and Smart Contract Development. This is a future oriented investment, to early bring students closer to Blockchain (and hopefully meet some of them again as future Unibright developers 😉)

And:
- LibraCamp proposals
- Conversations/Meetings with Regulators and Financial Investors on future of Tokenization and Securities (rather generic, but also interesting for our Tokenization cases)
- Development
- Partnering

In the 2nd half of the week, we will also have some face to face meetings in Berlin, moving some contacts from the digital world to the "real world", meeting them personally and in 3D 😉

Have a great week, Stefan  



30th of July 2019 - Libra Camp, Digital Asset Holdings, Tracing Consortium, Tokenization Client
https://t.me/unibright_io/145127

Dear Community,

this week: 
- we are intensifying talks to Libracamp 
- we push our DigitalAsset partnership further to the official announcement 
- we have follow up meetings with potential participants of our planned tracing consortium
- we continue developing, mainly in the tokenization case

Have a great time!



22nd of July 2019 - Tokenization, Batch Tracing, Energy Related Start up, DAML Partnership, Libra Integration.
https://t.me/unibright_io/144548

After some days off last week enjoying some family time we returned to the Unibright headquarters today.
This week we have quite a few meetings coming up, covering pretty much all spaces we are currently active in: our tokenization cases, our tracing cases, a new use case from a energy related startup (early stage), DAML partnership, Libra development and most probably additional things coming up we just don't know yet - it's just Monday 😉
Stay tuned and have a great week!



16th of July 2019 (Bastian Update) - Cross-Industry Tracing Template, Novatrace.org
https://t.me/unibright_io/143947

Dear community, 
since Stefan enjoys his well-deserved vacation, I take over our Monday’s update... on Tuesday :)

This week‘s focus is on tracing...
As you guys know, we are currently working on a basis for a cross-industry tracing template.
The goal is to develop a standard that, depending on the industry, can be adapted to the respective requirements. 
We would therefore like to work with both sides equally: 
Those who issue certificates and are responsible for quality assurance (e.g. Novatrace), as well as genuine customers who wish to comply with these standards. 

This means a lot of meetings and intensive conversations, and hopefully we will be able to tell you more about their success soon.

Have a great week!


 

8th of July 2019 - DigitalAsset.com Partnership, DAML Integration, SAP Hana Migration, Tokenization Template
https://t.me/unibright_io/143285

Hi Unibrighters!
This week started with another meeting with digitalasset.com on our partnership and further DAML integration today. Good progress!

Topics for our development team this week will be SAP Hana migration, and adding features to our tokenization template, here mainly addressing automated tests and some extended front-end concepts.
Have a great week!



1st of July 2019 - Libra/MOVE Integration
https://t.me/unibright_io/142493

Dear Community.
After our successful Carbonara Launch last week, this week is mainly about setting up LIBRA/MOVE integration into the Unibright Framework. We will have a dedicated blog post on our development here soon - stay tuned!



26th of June 2019 - Carbonara Launch with Zuehlke
https://t.me/unibright_io/141903

We are extremely excited about Carbonara. 

Unibright is blockchain agnostic and we are sure, that clients will make their decision for a specific blockchain not only by technical arguments, but also by "How green is the underlying technology"

Carbonara will raise awareness for this matter, and we invite you all to spread the word about it and to contribute (by coding, tweeting, and so on).



17th of June 2019 - Presenting the UB Framework at Synchronize Europe in London
https://t.me/unibright_io/141034

On our way to "Synchronize Europe" conference in London, where we present Unibright and DAML together with digitalasset.com



11th of June 2019 - Blockchain Expo Europe, DigitalAsset.com partnership
https://t.me/unibright_io/140213

Dear Community,
yesterday was an official holiday in Germany, and now we are happy to tell you what this week brings to the Unibright Universe.

One part of the team will be attending Blockchain Expo Europe next week (Amsterdam) and is preparing.

Marten and Stefan will join Snynchronize Europe (https://www.imn.org/financial-technology/conference/Synchronize-Europe/Agenda.html) in London. We are teaming up with digitalasset.com here and showing how DAML (their blockchain agnostic programming language) and Unibright can work together. Stefan will also show a demo of the Unibright Framework creating DAML code out of graphical representation with our Workflow Designer.

The Unibright / Digitalasset partnership will be launched officially some weeks after the event, but we both are really excited about joining forces. Digital Asset is backed by 15 strategic investors, including leading financial and technology companies that are uniquely positioned to help drive the adoption of blockchain solutions on a global scale.



3rd of June 2019 - Workshop, STO, Novatrace.org, Carbonara
https://t.me/unibright_io/139677

https://t.me/unibright_io/138880

Dear Unibright Community,
it is Monday and we just had our start into the week. A perfect moment to tell you what we are currently at:
- Ruud and Jack returned from the Malta Conference and we have to catch up to all contacts they met and made there, mainly from the STO sector, also with useful information for our real estate client
- For the tracing clients, we are preparing talks with a non-profit organization aiming to set standards in transparent tracing processes, which would be very helpful in synchronizing our batch tracing template features with international standards
- Carbonara is 90% ready, we will discuss next steps with the Zuehlke marketing team this week to ensure a proper launch of a great project

We wish you a great and (uni)bright week, all the best,
Stefan



15th of May 2019 - Tokenization and cross-chain integration, German food company, ISM webinar and Unibright Meetup
https://t.me/unibright_io/137840

Dear Unibright Community,
as it has been exactly one month after our road map update (see the pinned message), I want to give you a short heads up on some of the different client cases we have been working on, from a CTO perspective 😉

US-based real estate client (tokenization and cross-chain integration):
We made a lot of progress here, met in Dublin last week and have a development focus group working on the related template this week in Bingen (3 Backend/Blockchain Developers, 1 UX specialist, 1 front-end developer, 1 architect, 1 legal expert, 1 market expert, Ingo, Marten and me). It is still a lot of work to do, but once the template is up and running, it has potential for a lot of consumption / traction on the UB framework.

German based food company (transparent supply chain)
Basically we are using our batch tracing template here, but the specifics needed takes some time. The client is dealing with medical food, so there is studies and clinics involved and at this time we have to wait a little bit to continue. There is another (Canada based) company who want to do exactly the same, using the UB framework, and we are working on both cases in parallel to put as much domain knowledge into our template as possible.

Carbonara: Our CO2-compensation related side project also comes closer to its public launch, we expect to have something ready to show in June.

Speeches, workshops, meetups, webinars: The ISM webinar has just been published (see our Blog), and a meetup is about to come.

There are of course tons of details on all ends (development, networking, showcasing) and we still follow our credo to publish details about certain news once they are 100% fix - so this message is just the exception proving the rule 😉

More info soon, all the best,
Stefan
