Blockchain Consulting

The Canada most well-known Blockchain Developer

Anthony has been in Manila since June of 2017 when he was hired as the lead developer of LoyalCoin. LoyalCoin was the first cryptocurrency from the Philippines and to this day is the most well-known token from the country. Anthony led all the technology efforts for LoyalCoin including creating the technology for their ICO, developing loyalcoin.io (now loyalwallet.io), creating the LoyalWallet (now on the AppStore and Google Play) to distributing the tokens to the thousands of buyers. After his stint at LoyalCoin, Anthony was a true expert with blockchain and the business surrounding it, and he founded Winterwind, the first blockchain-focused software agency from Southeast Asia.

Blockchain Technology Consulting

Anthony will ask you a number of questions about your business and goals before making suggestions on which blockchain to use, whether to create your own token or not, etc. Due to the nature of blockchain, it is very difficult to change your blockchain to another one later on. From a technology standpoint it can certainly be done, however there are numerous issues that can arise, such as your users already holding the old token and challenges surrounding token migration.

Anthony is familiar with all major blockchains and their capabilities, and strengths and weaknesses. After he has a good understanding of your business goals, he will offer you some choices for the blockchain and also explain why he has chosen it.

Hybrid Infrastructure

Anthony is a strong proponent of hybrid blockchain applications as compared to purely decentralized applications. There are numerous advantages to running a hybrid system as opposed to purely decentralized apps (dApps).

check Hybrid apps can offer instant feedback to uses, dApps must wait for the transaction to be mined.
check Snappier user experience as the user's component runs on a centralized database. The blockchain is a supporting layer and the blockchain transaction is done immediately after in the background.
check Ability to offer centralized login with reset password capabilities.
check Much easier to changes to the blockchain layer down the line.

That being said, Anthony realizes there are some applications that were meant to be fully decentralized, and Winterwind's team is well-equipped to develop these applications.

Hybrid Infrastructure

Stable Coin Consulting

Winterwind is working with many projects that involve stable coins. The inefficiency and high cost associated with SWIFT wire transfers, Western Union and the like has given rise to a substantial amount of stable coin projects. Oftentimes these projects are in the remittance industry.

Winterwind has extensive experience creating stable coins and is working with stable coin projects that also have built-in cash-in and cash-out functionality. We often go to Stellar Lumens to run these projects on, however there are more possibilities, including EOS.
