We have participated in Winding Tree Hackathon in October. hosted in Paralelní polis, Prague.
And we won the first prize in one of the categories! Well done guys! What we worked on?
.NET library adapter between winding tree platform and hotel booking networks
We tried to connect WT with on of our products Siesta Solution hotel management system – export real-life hotel data, submit booking and pay for the booking using Ethereum cryptocurrency. In other words, in this limited time scope, we tried to put Winding Tree to production environment “as much as possible” by going through the whole “hotel life cycle” — we exported a hotel from our software with custom off-chain URL, we customized the URL, so the user could actually book the rooms. The booking and payment then got processed and returned back to our system.
Problems we faced were a variety of technical problems and few communication and validation issues.
Our goal was to create a general-purpose .NET library that would simplify the connection to WT network and do all the “boring” blockchain stuff for you.
We have learned, that the Winding Tree platform could be realistically used in production in its current state. However, there is still a lot of work to do on WT side — in our opinion the main goal of WT should now be to simplify the access to the WT ecosystem to a wider audience.
