Decentralized KYC on Hyperledger in a Government context

|| BLOCKOTUS || - part 1

DEON Decentralized Off-grid Network with Hyperledger Fabric.

Build an app, a community, or a government.

|| BLOCKOTUS || v0.1.5-beta (available now)

What does it offer?

Understand BLOCKOTUS concept
  • create a network

  • create an organization (admins) and join a network

  • register usernames

  • create identities

  • KYC verification jobs

  • DID (W3C Decentralized Identifiers)

  • discover an unusual code structure approach, conceptualized as an organism

Custom Hyperledger Fabric SDK
  • a simple way to start with Hyperledger technology

  • tools like "Hot Chaincode Upgrade" to simplify Hyperledger development flow

|| BLOCKOTUS || v1.0 (early 2022)

What will it offer?

  • add organizations to your Network and distribute responsibilities

  • polls

  • Blockotus Network Discovery

  • DID complete implementation

  • Request other ledgers, such as Bitcoin, IOTA, and Ethereum



Built with Hyperledger Fabric, this Alpha Developer Preview is based on the test-network provided by Hyperledger in the fabric-samples repository.
It has been improved to interact with the Chaincode Contracts Upgrade helper, and to integrate with the other development scripts.


They are composed of a group of chaincode contracts and APIs, and are separated by roles.
For example, the User organ is in charge of registering usernames, and storing shared keypairs. It is composed of the User contract and Keypair contract. On the other side, the Identity organ store the identities provided by the users, destined to be KYC-verified.


An http server. It transmits the signed proposals or raw transactions to the network, before being executed by the contracts. It results in a read/write of the database, distributed across peers and organizations of the network.


Everyone can create a webapp compatible with the nerves API. They are used by the end users to interact with the Network.


Helpers for installation, development and build.

Decentralized KYC and Users


Communities governance and Voting system


The functionalities will be extended with assets registers and economic features.

Assets registry and management (2022-2023)

Interior Production ruled by chaincode contracts (2022-2023)

Economic model (2022-2023)

It's the opportunity to finance differently and distribute differently. An innovative model will be available "as a service" to create your economic project on BLOCKOTUS. It will offer a different way to finance your ideas, and distribute products and profits.

Investors (2022-2023)
