Digitalbits is supposed to be a network for issueing Consumer Digital Assets. However, currently it is hard for companies to issue assets on the DigitalBits network if they don't have the knowledge.

What it does

This project provides a set of apis to allows for issuing assets and paying those issued assets to DigitalBits accounts. Users can register for the api and then login to receive an apikey, which can then be used to use the service.

Sometimes accounts might not have trustlines to the assets you want to send. The api can do two types of payments. 1. Paying using a payment operation or 2. Paying using a claimable_balance operation. Paying with a claimable balance is usefull in the case that the recipient does not yet have a trustline to the asset.

refer to the github repo for a complete overview of the available endpoints.

How we built it

I used Typescript to build to backend for the api and sql to store information about the registered users.

Challenges we ran into

I had to use Typescript as that was the only up-to-date sdk.

What's next for Tokens as a Service

  • add more endpoints.
  • add ability to host metadata about assets created witht the api.
  • add a way to charge users for using the api.
