Ethereum is an amazing technology but adoption is still lacking. When we talk about adoption, our focus is on the amount of users.
But what we as a community are actually looking for is economic adoption, make Ethereum act at the base of the economy.
Enterprise adoption is one way to get there, that's why we should emrace these enterprises in our ecosystem.
The purpose of a business is to create a customer who creates customers - Shiv Singh
Ethereum is a decentralized business and we are the customers, our job is to find and onboard our customers. It is crucial that the entry barrier for new enterprises is very low, this is the reason why we created KiwEth.
What it does
KiwEth is an one-click blockchain tool, that will get you up to speed very quickly.
The user is provided a simple and sexy UI where the parameters for the blockchain can be entered, these parameters are
- Amount of nodes
- Consensus algorithm
KiwEth is an adaptive tool, its very easy to choose different hosting platforms that will support your blockchain nodes. this could be
- google cloud
- custom cloud
- on premise
KiwEth is hosted on Arweave, so enterprises can easily interact with our tool on premise, by setting up their own Arweave node.
Once you've published your blockchain network it is very easy to do performance tests and test the limits of your blockchain network. These tests have the following parameters
- Type of transaction (basically which EVM opcodes) -- Private transaction recipients (Quorum only)
- Amount of transactions
- Time between transactions
The metrics for the performance tests are
- The time it took to process the transaction
- For every node -- CPU usage -- RAM usage -- Disk usage -- Network ussage
How we built it
We took the different parameters of a blockchain network and created a great user experience around it.
We experienced that enterprises want to measure the blockchain metrics with different setups. We examined the different metrics and tried to cover them all.
Challenges we ran into
Lack of documentation.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We created the sexiest user interface for setting up a Quorum blockchain
What we learned
We learned to work with Quorum, Private Ethereum and Docker.
What's next for KiwEth
We envision a drag and drop interface where all the parameters can easily be edited. People are able to see the network, no tech knowledge required.
We envision that that every node can be setup with different parameters
- HDD / SDD
- Network speed between nodes
- Network latency between nodes
