AUSTIN, Texas, 12-06-2018 — Factom, Inc. announced the expansion of Factom Harmony today with the release of Harmony Connect, offering an inexpensive, fast way to build blockchain capabilities into an application without managing cryptocurrencies, wallets, or network nodes. Factom’s blockchain-as-a-service platform, Factom Harmony, provides REST APIs to read, write and search Factom blockchain entries with ease as it limits the barriers of entry in adding blockchain technology to your application.
Connect offers a free blockchain sandbox for exploration, as well as private blockchain environments for development, staging, and production. Entries are added to the public Factom blockchain with predictable, fixed entry costs in USD. Connect comes with everything you need to get started, including: APIs, client libraries, documentation, and a blockchain explorer to verify and debug entries. No matter where you start, it’s easy to upgrade any time without code changes.
“Much like the Internet drove the evolution of distributed applications, blockchain is driving decentralized applications that don’t require intermediaries,” said VP of Product Mark Foster. “Our blockchain-as-a-service platform enables rapid prototyping and cost-effective deployments on public, private, and hybrid blockchain networks.”
“We’re proud to put products like Connect into the hands of people building interesting things with blockchain,” added CEO Paul Snow. “This how we can connect our technology to other developers and engage the blockchain community at large. The Factom team has put in a lot of hard work to make Connect a reality and we’re looking forward to seeing the projects that will be built.”
The Factom Harmony platform currently has two products: Harmony Connect and Harmony Integrate. While Harmony Connect is a fast for developers or those looking to test their ideas in a sandbox to get started with blockchain, Harmony Integrate can be scaled for enterprise customers needs, as it provides a seamless way to add data integrity and trust to existing business processes and systems. Factom looks forward to the continued growth of the Factom Harmony platform.
