BlockParty – The decentralized event management Web application becomes part of the blockchain
A recent declaration from Incubated Status, an accelerator blockchain developed by Status.im, based on Ethereum, notes that BlockParty is the latest project to join the platform after Pixura and CryptoStrikers. BlockParty which was developed by Makoto Inoue, a member and developer of the Ethereum community is trying to create a one-of-a kind event management dAPP.
BlockParty is an open source project that seeks to provide event organizers and planners with a completely decentralized solution to help address issues related to under-frequented and over-arrears.
How does BlockParty work?
The decentralized web system requires that all persons register for a particular event make a small deposit in the form of ETH funds. If they do not participate in the event they have selected, they lose the funds they had already paid. After an event is over, any ETHs raised by non-presence are distributed to all the people who presented themselves for the event.
Addressing the problem of non-submission to events
BlockParty as a decentralized web system is unique in the way it comes close to participating in the event. Its uniqueness can also be seen in its application of behavioral economics and smart contracts. The system tries to tackle real problems using Ethereum, how to participate in an event just to realize that many of the people who said they would come were not bothered to introduce themselves.
Compared to traditional software used in event planning, BlockParty has created an incentive to participate in events. This is a solution that would not have been available a few years back when Ethereum and blockchain were unknown. Thanks to Ethereum, the development of BlockParty dAPP is now a possibility.
Makoto Inoue-BlockParty Founder
Before embarking on the development of BlockParty, Makoto worked and eventually launched a study focused on group developers for those interested in developing Ethereum. During this period, Makoto also started to build a prototype for the project now known as BlockParty.
The prototype was later put to the test in two events aptly entitled Devcon2 and Devcon3. Together with his two co-founders (Ramesh Nair and Jeff Lau), Makoto imagines BlockParty as a decentralized web system that has the potential to be adopted for mass use.
What & # 39; s Next?
BlockParty was initially created as a way of meeting Makoto's personal goals. He, however, plans to use the dAPP completed in the organization and in the lead of his London-based Ethereum study group. Since the dAPP is open source, all developers are welcome to clone it and distribute their own versions.
Makoto, however, went ahead to warn developers that they might be interested in cloning the application, stating that its code is currently in the super alpha phase. This means that there are still some vital characteristics and robustness.
For those who are not coding experts or technical aspects of Ethereum, but are interested in using BlockParty at a local party or event, they are invited to reach out in Makoto via its Twitter handle. BlockParty is a practical dAPP that can be used to organize large events.
