Smart contracts on blockchain the next wave of CRM automation

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • A smart contract is a type of software deployed across a distributed ledger to automate an agreement between parties to transfer digital assets or record events based upon various conditions, said Brian Behlendorf, executive director of Hyperledger, a collaborative, cross-industry blockchain effort created by The Linux Foundation.
  • Octiv first out of the gate Smart contracts on blockchain can now be created with software available from Octiv, an Indianapolis-based vendor of sales document management software.
  • Octiv’s smart contracts on blockchain technology also improves process flow by alerting other departments of any new contract executions.
  • Hyperledger’s Behlendorf predicts that smart contracts on blockchain will be widely used in business within three to five years, once Hyperledger and others create standards and develop software implementations that are robust, reliable and feature-complete.
  • While Oracle and other CRM vendors are introducing blockchain capabilities to their platforms, the smart contract software itself is expected to come from third-party specialists, according to Oracle’s Xiong.

  • The version used for this report is commit is our assessment and recommendations, in order of importance.Update: The BABB team has followed our recommendations and updated the Bax Token contract.
  • The new version is at commit severityNo critical issues were found.High severityNo high severity issues were found.Medium severityNo medium severity issues were found.Low severityLack of integration testsThe BaxToken makes use of theBurnableToken and CappedToken contracts of the OpenZeppelin framework.
  • Although there are unit tests ensuring their correct behavior within the OpenZeppelin repository, there is no integration test to ensure the BaxToken behaves the way it is expected.Consider adding integration tests to check BaxToken behavior and initialization.Update: Fixed in commit ea5268b.Notes Additional InformationBaxToken uses some OpenZeppelin’s contracts claiming to be…
  • Consider declaring this dependency explicitly following our installation recommendation via the zeppelin-solidity NPM package.Update: Fixed in commit be9f106.The 1.5.0 version of the OpenZeppelin framework includes a parameterized ERC20 token contract called DetailedERC20.
  • We are also available for smart contract security development and auditing work.Note that as of the date of publishing, the above review reflects the current understanding of known security patterns as they relate to the Bax Token contracts.

  • The sheer volume and complexity of traditional contracts can be overwhelming, involving high administrative costs, dependence on a third party system and often outright confusion.
  • Smart contracts can simplify and streamline the process by automatically triggering a claim when certain events occur.
  • Smart contracts can record ownership rights as items move through the supply chain, confirming who is responsible for the product at any given time.
  • Smart contracts could additionally be used to facilitate wage payments, according to the agreed amount and within a specific time period.
  • Smart contracts can ensure that royalties go to the intended recipients by recording ownership rights in a decentralised blockchain system.

Software Audit –

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Havven SoftwareAuditAudit Partners and Open SourceCodeToday were pleased to announce that we have open sourced the code for version 1.0 of the Havven platform under the MIT licence, in addition to the previously released code for our network simulation.
  • We chose the MIT licence given that it is one of the most permissive licenses available and will allow components of the network to be integrated into closed source projects, which is critical for adoption by financial institutions.Were also announcing our two audit partners for our smart contracts: ZK Labs…
  • The team at Sigma Prime specialise in blockchain technology and information security, with penetration testing and smart-contract auditing as core offerings.
  • The audit of the Havven contracts will enlist multiple PhDs, security experts and smart-contract developers.Audit ScopeOur partners will undertake specialist, independent security analysis of the contract interactions, as well as provide an interface for our developer team to ensure code simplicity and gas-efficient execution.
  • If youre interested in browsing through our source code, check out the code on our GitHub.Further InformationIf youd like to reach out with feedback, please contact a member of our core technical team at tech@havven.io, or jump on our public telegram channel.Havven.io | Twitter | Havven Blog | Telegram |…
