Word of mouth

What it's like to work with us?
Take it from those who come back:

Clovr Labs, co-Founder & CxO
When I was first introduced to Alex I wondered: 'who's this guy with a sense of humor on Telegram?'. Later on I got to discover a sharp, focused individual that didn't feel the urge of cutting corners just to get a project over the fence. Besides an outstanding comprehension of all things Ethereum and beyond, his proposals always took into account both short and long term considerations, which isn't that at all common. A great professional to work with.

Visionary mindset and precise execution,— that's how I'd describe Alexandra. She sees the whole picture, down to the tiny details, and carves a path to deliver results swiftly and efficiently. The thorough and holistic approach Alexandra takes has helped me a number of times to look at things from a new angle. Adding to that strong communication skills and a great personality,— I'm grateful to have her in my network, and look forward to working with her again.


ART21, Innovation Manager
My experience working with Byzantine.Solutions team was pretty amazing. I really appreciate multisector expertise of the team and am thankful for not only achieving all the goals on time but also consulting and advising on side topics. Together we've succeeded to develop technical documentation for the unique data privacy centered network and also conducted feasibility experiments. So once again, great job, Byzantine.Solutions! Looking forward for the new quests to solve together with you.

Our Collaborations

Some of the outstanding projects
we had the pleasure to work with:

Collaborations

A standing partnership with Republic Advisory Services, the crypto arm of Republic, a leading equity investment platform in the US. Byzantine Solutions is an expert partner on the topics of blockchain research and tokenomics modeling.

The first fintech bank targeting underserved high-risk clientele: startups, crypto businesses, digital-nomad entrepreneurs and freelancers. We undertook a comprehensive field study of the existent regtech solutions and frameworks to give an unbiased view on the bank’s compliance pipeline design.
We implemented an escrow service for payments on Waves blockchain, using the recently published RIDE smart contract language. The service is an open-source web application integrated with Waves Keeper for a fully trustless interaction cycle with the blockchain. The collaboration is a part of the fourth batch of the projects supported under the Waves Grants program.
A DLT platform for trustless, zero-knowledge sharing of ML models and datasets for training and execution. Byzantine Solutions is filling the roles of principal investigator and architect of the product. The scope of our works includes internal research, collaborative research, and product design, up to providing the technical specification for a production-ready platform.
A P2P B2B loan marketplace that connects individuals with investment opportunities primarily in emerging countries. We assisted with the smart contract architecture and bringing the new team members up to speed with smart contract development and integration. Find the details of our collaborative onsite session in this blog post.
A horizontally scalable blockchain framework for enterprise customers. We have developed the Economic Paper, based on previous research conducted by Insolar, Byzantine Solutions, and other partners of Insolar.
A protocol for decentralized gambling applications with gradual blockchainization from adopting a new payment processing instrument to fully trustless, decentralized gambling, with retention of the existing pre-DLT UX. We designed a smart contract architecture with an iterative on-boarding roadmap of existing pre-DLT online gambling services, implemented MVP, and wrote the Technical Paper.
A public blockchain network with horizontal scalability, based on custom combination of Proof-of-Stake mechanisms and a number of unique architectural choices. We performed a Technical Due Diligence on the protocol and protocol documentation, together with an interview with the project’s CRO.
The first integrated provider of trading data and liquidity for private round tokens. In collaboration with the project's team we conducted market research, created a comprehensive project description and, upon client's request, also explored the possibilities of integration into the Cosmos ecosystem
