To the Demo Platform
In this video you will learn how to create forms, add/configure form components, create/test (*.ODT) templates, and connect these elements to build a basic Proxeus workflow in just a few minutes
This video guides you through the process of creating a document, registering it on the blockchain, verifying its authenticity and sending/accepting signature requests from other Proxeus users.
Often dubbed as the “Wordpress of blockchain”, Proxeus is a tool aiming to simplify the development of document-centered blockchain applications.
The set up features and functionalities offered allows to quickly prototype a large range of blockchain applications. Have a look at the use cases we have been working on over the last years for some inspiration.
XES is the utility token used to facilitate transactions across the Proxeus ecosystem. Workflow creators can decide to make their work available externally, for free or for a fee. Workflows published on a platform can be purchased by consumers on a pay-per-use basis.
If you are interested to test the Proxeus platform, a demo application with limited functionalities is available on testnet.
If you are a developer and would like to install Proxeus, please check the developer section of the website.
The following apps are needed to use Proxeus.
We recommend using the Google Chrome browser. Other MetaMask- compatible browsers may work, too.
MetaMask is required for processing your payments for our services. Proxeus also allows you to log in using your Ethereum wallet instead of a password. You can download MetaMask directly from here.
Proxeus templates must be created in the OpenDocument Text format with the “.ODT” suffix. Several popular office suites such as Microsoft Word and the free-to-use LibreOffice and OpenOffice support this format.
A free download can be found here.
Because the test platform runs on the Ropsten Test network, switch to the Ropsten testnet by opening MetaMask, clicking on “Main Ethereum Network” and selecting “Ropsten Test network”.
In order to obtain free test Ethers (ETH), you can use the Ropsten faucet. Open MetaMask and click “buy” (or “deposit” if you are using an Apple computer). Click on “Get Ether”, this should open a page that allows you to request as many test Ethers as possible. It may take up to a few minutes until the test Ethers show up in your balance in MetaMask.
Every user receives 10 test XES upon registration on the platform.
To check your test XES balance, you need to add the token to your MetaMask wallet. In the “Tokens” tab, click “Add token” and use the following inputs:
We have prepared a user handbook here. It serves as a manual to all the available functionalities. We suggest reading the handbook from beginning to end and try out all the different features.
The test networks for the Ethereum blockchain are an incredibly useful tool for easy and painless software testing. They are like cloned copies of the real blockchain, running on separate nodes. Ethers (ETH) in testnets do not carry any value and can be obtained for free from a so-called faucet. We use the Ropsten testnet as an inexpensive way to test our smart contracts and blockchain interactions. This means that you do not have to use your own Ethers (ETH) or Proxeus tokens (XES) for your testing activities. In fact, we strongly recommend using a separate wallet for testing purposes. In MetaMask, you can easily create as many wallets as you want and simply switch between them.
The workflow builder allows anyone to define all the relevant information needed from the different parties involved in a particular process. The workflow builder contains three elements: templates, forms and conditions. With these three elements, it is possible to replicate complex workflows any other registration processes where inputs are required from several participants.
The verification tool enables you to check the authenticity of any documents that have been issued by a particular certifier. By dragging-and-dropping the document on the verification window, it is possible to find out within a few seconds if a document is authentic: if the verification was successful and the document is indeed registered on the blockchain, a green check will appear. If the verification was unsuccessful, the tool shows a red warning.
Anyone that is in possession of your created document and has access to the platform, can verify the authenticity of the document.
Yes, workflows can be shared. However, the sharing feature is designed for experienced users who would like to collaborate with other users or publish their work for others to use or copy. More details can be found in the handbook.
Unless you share your workflows, the workflows, templates and forms you create are only visible to you.
Yes, all documents, workflows, templates and forms that you created will be saved on the server. However, Proxeus reserves the right to delete all data at any time.
We are not running a bug bounty at the moment. With your valuable feedback, you are contributing to a project that will be open source and freely available to the community. If we run a bug bounty in the future, your contributions will be considered.
We’re kindly asking you to try and look for answers in this FAQ and the handbook first. If you’re stuck, a group of early users is happy to answer your questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep in mind that this group of developers and product specialists works on a voluntary basis and we do not provide 24/7 technical support.
Yes, the code of the framework will be released upon the due completion of the project. However, the XES token will be non-removable.
The local storage application was an experiment and has been discontinued as several of its core elements have now been integrated into the main Proxeus application.
