Metavine Unveils Crowd Machine
November 20, 2017
unveiled a prototype for the evolution of blockchain and the creation of
fully decentralized applications called Crowd Machine.
Crowd Machine launches a full developer stack; scalable computation,
file storage, external data, monetization, and payments for the creation
of decentralized applications of the future. With all these components
in place, "decentralized apps are poised for explosive mainstream
growth", explains Fred Ehrsam, ex-Coinbase co-founder in this Medium
Crowd Machine's solution is further enhanced by the fact that these
decentralized apps can be built on top of any blockchain, supported by a
zero-code environment where virtually anyone can build an app.
"The growth of the production blockchain ecosystem is slow because
traditional development approaches don't enable applications to be built
at a pace that meets market demand," said Craig Sproule, CEO of Crowd
"The ICO market is awash with white papers promising applications to be
delivered in unachievable timeframes. Crowd Machine delivers the
technology to allow those promises to be met," continued Sproule.
Three essential components form Crowd Machine:
Crowd Computer - a global decentralized app execution engine, designed
to execute blockchain smart contracts and decentralized apps. A
peer-to-peer network of crowd virtual machines (CVM) run on peer
devices, with owners compensated for the use of their surplus processing
power. This highly powerful decentralized cloud is being finalized by
ex-Blockstream developers, Ben Gorlick and Johnny Dilley who have joined
•The Crowd App Studio makes it
up to 45x faster and cheaper to build traditional and blockchain apps
•Crowd Share enables the
developer community to contribute source code to its repository. Each
time source code is consumed and executed on the Crowd Computer, the
community member who contributed the code is compensated.
Crowd Machine is the only full-stack decentralized app creation &
execution technology available to integrate with existing smart
contracts and extend the functionality of those contracts. It functions
both on-chain and off-chain to deliver real world enterprise-class
The technology has been tested by Fortune 500 companies; General
Electric, AON Hewitt, KONE, Anthem and Pacific Western Bank. Developers
and novices can build apps for free, making coding a thing of the past
and a serious competitor to building dApps on Solidity.
