Growing the æpps Ecosystem (Part 2)
Last month we’ve published parts of our presentation on great use cases and decentralised applications which use the æternity blockchain network as a foundation for their platforms.
We’ve presented global æcosystem projects – Vereign AG, Assetify, Cryptic Legends, Box Aepp, CryptoTask, Jelly Swap and ReCheck in our Medium blog post as well as solutions created by our Chinese community – æChina, WeTrue, AeKnow, AEsay, AEns presented in our Chinese New Year post, and In the Spotlight with the aeLink.
Today, let’s take a look at some more great projects operating in the spheres of energy, decentralised finance, security, social media and even Space exploration, street art and Cannabis production and supply.
AMPnet is the easiest way to finance your next project & trade project shares. AMPnet is a web, iOS and Android app for running crowdinvesting and crowdlending campaigns. It runs under your own brand (your logo, your domain) and integrates easily into existing websites. All users of the AMPnet platform get access to AMPnet APX – a central portal enabling you to co-fund projects, trade project shares and exchange documents.
In order to support the creation and operation of thousands of independent tokenization platforms and enable users to effortlessly verify the integrity of the tokenized assets – AMPnet team built a platform containing the AMPnet APX Protocol and the AMPnet Tokenizer Builder. More about the platform can be found here.
In the past six months, AMPnet has had an unprecedented growth in terms of client acquisitions, platform development and, subsequently, capital raise.
These are the key updates from the last six months of AMPnet and APX:
SmartCredit leverages the scalability of the æternity blockchain to provide crypto-backed loans to individuals seeking finance, as well as Credit as a Service API to crypto platforms. It provides key components of an alternative blockchain-based financial system – crypto lending/borrowing, fixed income funds, and integrations. SmartCredit operates on a principle of fixed-term and fixed interest loans leading to a very low collateral ratio that is 2 to 2.5 times lower than the market average. SmartCredit.io solution will disintermediate the commercial bank lending. It will create an alternative financial system, which allows 2-Click consumer credit, immediate liquidity for the lenders and VISA / MasterCard disintermediation.
With a motto ‘’Take back control over your money!”, SmartCredit brings the multi-chain-collateral approach (One set of the smart contracts will be running with the high gas fees (Ethereum) and the other set with the low gas fees (æternity), where users can choose between the chains and lock the assets on other chains.

Uruguay Can is a Uruguayan company based in Montevideo that combines experience in recreational, medicinal and hemp cannabis developments in already established projects with a consolidated agronomic team in the first country in the world to legalize production, with the objective of exporting to all the world an increasingly broad portfolio of products.
UCAN obtained a certification of good agricultural practices (GAP), under an organic scheme. They are the only Uruguayan company that supplies a blockchain control and traceability system, from sowing to the final product, ensuring the quality of their processes and products. Under this model, Uruguay Can is able to track everything from the seed stages to final end-consumer products. For Uruguay Can CEO Eduardo Blasina, this is a tremendous milestone for the South American nation. This technological solution raises the security standards in the process, generating warrantees regarding the quality of the final product making it more valuable and reliable internationally.
P.S. Uruguay is the world’s first country to completely legalize cannabis production and sale in December 2013
HomePort, is a software platform enabling the creation of a decentralised, user-centric ground station and space data network.
Providing a decentralised marketplace for ground station capacity, which operators of satellites or satellite constellations in space can use to maximize the output of their fleet. Homeport also allows them to optimise data session scheduling between the stations and the satellites. Homeport aims to build a global, decentralised space data teleport across free and proprietary frequencies alike, for a variety of satellite operators.
Using Sophia-language smart contracts, HomePort provides users with the ability to set up a direct contractual relationship without the need for a broker, therefore enabling them to decide their own prices, resource uses and contract durations. The oracle developed as part of Hydrogen, Homeport’s alpha version, validates the cloud status of the data received through a station; it is the first of many oracles that will help automate the contractual process and ensure exceptionally high levels of trust without the need for a third party.
The aepp allows for pictures to be transformed to a unique artistic style, with some estimation on complexity. More complex pictures will need a higher amount in the auction. Finally an svg file will be uploaded to ipfs to be available in a decentralised manner, while keeping the original input image private.
A reference to this artwork will be added to the graffiti auction smart contract on the æternity blockchain. Each bid to this auctions includes complexity, coordinates, reference and amount. All bids will be accepted, but bids that are paying low to fit in the available space, will be refunded to the participant.
All facets of this process are open-source, everyone is able to participate, verify and event to automate this process due to its public nature. So an immutable and public verifiable decentralised artwork will be created.

As we continuously strive to expand æcosystem, all we can say is that exciting times are ahead!
More æpps are currently in development and will be announced soon! In fact, pretty soon, the æternity blockchain will be deploying its first hyperchain and will put it up to a community vote. A hybrid PoW/PoS-driven solution like this would prevent 51% attacks and create an even safer environment for the entire æcosystem.
Everyone inspired to learn more about the mentioned projects, and to meet or talk to them, just drop us a message.
Moreover, if this article inspires you to keep building or start building on the æternity blockchain – here’ a good resource why to choose æternity technology which delivers robust smart contracts, faster virtual machine architecture, Oracle-driven interoperability, dynamic governance, infinite scalability, and streamlined development tools. We continuously work on bringing the best dev experience:
