Mendix, Blockchain and smart contracts

I'm trying to integrate some use cases of Blockchain into Mendix. Who els is experimenting with blockchain and Mendix? I'm searching for interesting API's and tools which I can connect to Mendix that interact with blockchain applications. So far I found 3 interesting options;, and I'm still looking for a more generic app which interreacts with the Ethereum blockchain and that will help me to create Smart contracts in a easy way. Anyone has any tips? Thank you.

I have used IBM Blockchain before to build this app:


It works quite well and has a very nice API, which makes it easy to interact with.


I haven't checked out the other solutions. I know some of our team are looking into blockchain technology and building some connectors, but i don't know their progress yet.






The core value of a blockchain technology is that it enables a database to be directly shared without a central administrator. Rather than having some centralized application logic, blockchain transactions have their own proof of validity and authorization to enforce the constraints. Hence, with the blockchain acting as a consensus mechanism to ensure the nodes stay in sync, transactions can be verified and processed independently.

To me nor IBM Blockchain, nor Mendix could be a real Blockchain solution, simply because it is not a full open source technology without any lock in power.


Hi Amadeo,

Not sure if you are still looking into the ethereum block chain. A while back I was researching the same thing and I found this java library that looked promising. I haven't had time to test it out but this should be everything you need.

Hope this helps!
