Coin Sciences is also pleased to announce a new collaboration with Seal Software, the award winning platform for contract discovery and analytics. Seal is to integrate MultiChain as a key component of its platform, combining Seal’s machine learning framework for intelligent contracts with MultiChain’s advanced streams functionality.
This will enable a single view of a multiparty contract’s terms and conditions to be shared, negotiated and managed on a peer-to-peer basis between the parties involved.
Together with these new partnerships, Coin Sciences is today announcing the first beta release of MultiChain 1.0 for Linux and Windows. The beta release represents the culmination of over 2 years of intensive development, driven relentlessly by feedback from developers building on the platform. During the beta period, additional testing and optimization will take place, with the final version 1.0 release due in summer 2017.
“Since launching the platform partner program in October, dozens of companies have reached out to us,” said Dr Gideon Greenspan, CEO and Founder of Coin Sciences Ltd. “Many had already built projects for their customers on MultiChain, and welcomed the opportunity to create a formal relationship. Others, such as Seal Software and Wolfram Research, sought to integrate MultiChain into their software platforms to enable peer-to-peer data sharing and collaboration. With version 1.0 of MultiChain now entering beta, we look forward to continued cooperation with all our partners, helping them leverage MultiChain for their customers’ needs.”
“Bringing two advanced technologies together like this takes the use of AI- based contract analytics to a whole new level,” said Kevin Gidney, Seal Software’s CTO and co-founder. “I am delighted to be working with Coin Sciences and their MultiChain platform on this opportunity.”
“Joining the MultiChain Platform Partner Program underpins our commitment to maintaining a deep understanding of the different Blockchain fabrics available, helping us advise our clients on electing the right solution,” said Seamus Cushley, Director of the PwC EMEA Blockchain team. “PwC has developed Blockchain solutions across a wide range of industries with a number of underlying fabrics, including successful engagements using MultiChain. Joining this program offers us early access to releases and priority access to their internal engineering team and we look forward to working with Coin Sciences more closely in the future.”
“We are very pleased to partner with Coin Sciences Ltd,” said Kaj Burchardi, Managing Director of Boston Consulting Group’s Platinion Netherlands division. “In our experience, the MultiChain platform provides an efficient opportunity to implement use cases in permissioned distributed ledger environments. We are convinced that the recent open source code release will give the platform another push in terms of implementations.”
“We are using MultiChain for building several Blockchain powered solutions, including shared KYC / AML, syndication of loans / consortium lending, trade finance, asset registry, asset re-hypothecation, secure documents, cross-border payments and peer-to-peer payments,” said Shinam Arora, CEO of Primechain Technologies Pvt. Ltd. “We find MultiChain very powerful yet easy to use.”
