We present OpenCryptoTrust (OpenCT), a platform for creating new and innovative blockchain-based solutions for the telecommunications industry. The inaugural applications of OpenCT are Blockchain as a Transport (BaaT) and Blockchain-Defined Wide Area Networks (BD-WAN). Join us in our vision to be the most innovative and transparent telecommunications provider in the blockchain ecosystem. OpenCryptoTrust (OpenCT) is a robust, high performance, hybrid blockchain platform that enables innovative solutions in telecommunications. OpenCT will challenge the characterization and standardization of the communication functions within telecommunications and will remove significant cost impacting inefficiencies in the traditional telco model that exist today.
The OpenCryptoTrust (OpenCT) platform is based on a hybrid blockchain. That is, it is both global and public, allowing a diverse range of adoption, users, and clients. Our OpenCT platform has been highly inspired by Graphene – a blockchain network created by the same development team that created the Bitshares and Steemit platforms. It combines many of the features that were critical for us. The origins of the OpenCT platform (BaaT and BD-WAN "killer apps") began four years ago (2013) as a POC (Proof of Concept) that was developed for one of the largest global investment firms on Wall Street. At the time the goal was to create an optical SDN (Software Defined Network) solution that would support the ability to build up and tear down circuits with provisioning times that were minutes instead of months. Our Optical Architects and Software Development team built this complex, multi-vendor, private solution.
