Blockchain Training

Managers manage the day to day but Leaders have to make decisions about what’s coming over the horizon.

Is new tech a threat or an opportunity? Does it challenge business as usual?

Is adopting new tech your strength or your weakness?  Do you act or react?  Either way you need to understand blockchains..

BlockMark Delivers Blockchain Training to 

  • Leadership Teams,
  • Senior Management Teams &
  • IT departments

We work with UK Banks, Building Societies, Life Insurance Companies and Asset Managers to better understand Blockchains and their future implications for business as usual.

Fact. Participants and delegates of BlockGames programmes score us  8.4 out of 9 for recommendations to other colleagues..

As with a car you don’t need to know too much about what’s under the hood but you need to know enough in order to drive it…. BlockGames reaches the right balance between the technical knowledge needed and more importantly, the practical applications in your industry.

  1. Crypto ROx Digital Collectibles (ERC721 / NFT)

Inspired by the great work on ERC721 standards & curious about the pioneering blockchain work behind CryptoKitties we  created the Worlds First  online blockchain jewellery store.

Artist-in -Residence Paul Farrell, designed the first Gemeration of Jewels. Now every 10 minutes brand new Baby Gems are minted on the Ethereum Blockchain with new Gems being created with the Remix contract.

Non Fungible Tokens exist in the form of;

  • Rubies,
  • Topaz,
  • Emeralds,
  • Garnets,
  • Lapis Lazuli
  • Aquamarine
  • Amethysts
  • Opal’s and of course a girl’s best friend –
  • Diamonds…

Exchange or store them in your digital wallet,  Remix and create your own Crown Jewels – the possibilities are endless…

2. Certificate Control

Certificates have many fatal flaws; digital copies are easily faked,  wet ink signatures are easily forged. They also get wet, blow away,  get lost and catch fire.

In our research lab we have created Blockchain-based Cryptographically Secure Certificates  anchored on both Chainpoint and Bitcoin blockchains. Easy to issue, easy to verify.

 

Currently certificate architecture is weak at the proof layer.

Blockchains can fix certificates using Non Fungible Tokens tied to digital signatures for both attestation & ownership.

Goal: To deploy & enforce certificate contracts using applied blockchain technology to guarantee certificate authenticity.

Technology : Anchoring certificate attestation with cryptographically signed identities linked to time-stamped smart contract conditional certificates.

Outcomes : Reduced fraud. Greatly improved certificate control for issuers and users. Super-fast verification for relying parties, accurate issuance for certificate authorities, certificate management for users, automated renewal and revocation for certifying bodies.

Ticketty Boo:

BlockMark is inventing and deploying frictionless ticketing solutions for the UK’s rail industry.

 

 

 

 

 

Goal:  Mobility as a Service (MaaS),  frictionless travel, “gateless gates & ticketless tickets”.

Technology:  Deployment of location & timestamped blockchain smart contracts, ticket filters & Pay-As-You-Go billing to improve user experience.

Outcomes: Reduced travel stress, faster journeys, reduced station congestion, accurate pricing & prevention of revenue loss.

*The phrase Ticketty Boo comes possibly from the Hindi  – “ṭhīk hai, bābū”, & was Englishified by the British Military in India to Tickety-Boo, meaning;  ‘Everything is Good’ or that things are proceeding quickly and smoothly. A perfect name for a frictionless travel project that says ‘boo’ to tickets…
