Technology

any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

At Water Ledger our focus is deploying emerging technology solutions that help water users, regulators, operators, intermediaries, and investors revolutionize the way water resources are digitally managed to the benefit of next generation water markets. The technology that we deploy includes three layers – access, business, and network – with platform capabilities to integrate with regulators, registries, water markets, brokers, and customers.

Ethereum

Many of Water Ledger’s core technologies are built on the Ethereum network. Ethereum is a globally distributed computer capable of executing user-defined code. It offers a powerful and highly transparent mechanism for the creation of “smart contracts”, which are self-enforcing digital contracts whose terms are enforced by shared code. Water Ledger is able to use these contracts to enforce governance and regulatory processes.

Ravencoin

Ravencoin is a fork of the Bitcoin network that is built specifically around the tokenization of assets. Tokens can be created, minted and mined through a simple interface, with no need for the creation of complex smart contracts. 

Ravencoin is intended to prioritize user control, privacy and censorship resistance, and be jurisdiction agnostic, while allowing optional additional features for users based on need.

 

DAML

Created with the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), Daml is a blockchain language based around the requirements of large enterprise clients and financial institutions. It has powerful signatory features that make it well suited to known participants such as in financial transactions. It is closed and secure by design, rather than the open, transparent approach of Ethereum.

Daml has no per-transaction fees, and can run on a range of enterprise-grade infrastructure options.

Rest APIs

Water Ledger make extensive use of REST standards to allow interoperability and open data access through its products. REST services provide a central point for orchestration, management and deployment of smart contracts, and event emission.

We are leveraging the Aqaix API Store which allows participants the potential to implement their own APIs and provides a central mechanism for monetization, governance and more.
