About 8gig

Businesses are under enormous, relentless pressure to innovate -- or risk extinction. In the next 10 years, about half of the S&P 500 is forecast to be replaced by more agile competitors. The imperative to transition to new ways of doing things is called digital transformation and businesses are spending trillions of dollars to achieve it.

Technology is the key, but also the bottleneck. Businesses lack access to the right skills, while the entrepreneurial potential of existing developers often languishes in siloed and bureaucratic corporate IT departments.

By combining a modern platform, robust developer network and a token- powered economy that unlocks innovation, 8gig is able to propel software development efforts forward in an exponential manner.

8base Technology1

Our low-code development platform, makes it possible to quickly and easily build, deploy and scale modern applications - - traditional or blockchain.

8gig Developer Network

Our developer ecosystem matches a high-performing, global network of software developers with business customers to deliver innovative new applications that power digital transformation.

Piece of 8 Token

Our token drives a robust economy that incentivizes innovation, collaboration, and entrepreneurial drive among 8gig participants.

Market Opportunity

Leading analyst firms assert that companies worldwide increasingly see digital transformation as a matter of success or failure in a rapidly-changing economic landscape. They are looking with a mix of excitement and concern at the rise of a new generation of billion-dollar business models across industries, from Uber to airbnb and Tesla.

As a result, the IDC estimates that $2 trillion will be spent on an annual basis across the globe by 2020. Low-code development platforms that increase the output of corporate IT teams are seen as an essential part of the solution for these businesses, with Forrester Research estimating market size to $22 billion by 2022.

Our Technology

Our low-code development platform, the 8base Serverless Chassis, helps front-end developers build, deploy and scale modern applications. Our unique edge serverless technology allows direct client-side interaction with various blockchains via a unified GraphQL API.

Get More Done Faster with Less

Our Backend-as-a-Service allows you to get up and running instantly without employing a full team of software development and IT professionals. Leverage 8base to rapidly deliver functional, beautiful and scalable software.

Advanced GraphQL

What is GraphQL?
This powerful API allows developers to:
  1. Define and update a database schema using GraphQL SDL Syntax.
  2. Use our Avanced Query Language:
    • CRUD operations (Create, Read, Update and Delete).
    • Define advanced Filters
    • Paginate Data Results.
    • Cache Data
  3. Expose Database through secure GraphQL API Gateway
For more information visit GraphQL.org

File and Document Store

Our native file and document store is a simple storage service that securely captures and stores raw files and makes them accessible to the system through our GraphQL API. Files are indexed and tagged and can be attached to any object.

Fault Tolerance and Backups

Our automated backup feature enables point-in-time recovery for your database instance. We can also employ replication to enhance availability and reliability for your production workloads.

Serverless

Our Serverless Chassis allows you to dynamically run code without provisioning or managing servers. You only pay for the compute time you consume. Avoid having expensive, energy-consuming idle infrastructure.

Auto-Scaling

The 8base Serverless Chassis automatically scales in response to the size of your workload, eliminating the need for capacity planning and DevOps functions.

Event-Driven

Our event-driven architecture and services gives developers the infrastructure they need to effectively develop a modern event-driven application.

Extensibility Framework

Our SDK provides an Extensibility Framework that allows developers to easily create extensions to the 8base Serverless Chassis. Additionally, developers looking to utilize extensions can easily discover and use extensions with no integration required.

Work with Any Blockchain

Each variation of blockchain has different characteristics that make it more or less suitable for any given situation. Considerations include: Public versus private; consensus approach; openness versus control; speed and cost; and, even environmental impact. We help make this choice easier while facilitating the ultimate implementation.

Blockchain Agnostic

The 8base Serverless Chassis makes it possible to approach software architecture from a blockchain agnostic perspective while easily incorporating the blockchain of choice into your applications.

Build Decentralized Apps Using Our Client-Side/Edge Technology

Almost all app building technologies were built for a centralized world where client-side user interfaces talks to a server-side database and application logic through an API. Decentralization calls for client-side logic to speak to the blockchain and decentralized storage through smart contracts. The 8base Serverless Chassis can be installed locally in a decentralized manner.

Cross-Connecting Disparate Blockchains

Decentralized applications will ultimately rely on the execution of multiple smart contracts, across multiple blockchains. Our solution makes it relatively easy to create software that integrates transactions across multiple blockchains.

Developers Decide Which Way to Interact

Work inside our Visually Stunning Environment or in Beast Mode (Command Line Interface)

Data Schema

Easily define complex data schemas using our visual tools or from your front-end code via the GraphQL API.

Data Viewer

View your data instantly inside of our integrated data viewer. Apply filters, grouping, sorting and other advanced features.

Role-Based Security

Restrict system access by creating advanced roles, privileges, users and groups with our easy-to-use administrative tools.

Settings & Account Manager

Manage your account and create custom settings to be utilized by your apps.

Command Line Interface

Skip the fancy UI and use the Command Line for many system functions.

Develop Stunning Apps

For any application, the user interface (UI) defines the experience. Our tools help developers rapidly incorporate UI design patterns that are recognized and loved by billions of end users around the world.

8base Boost UI Kit

Boost is a lightweight and modular front-end framework for developing fast and powerful web interfaces.

Front-End SDK & Components

Access our modular and customizable UI components and controls with a few lines of code.

Whitepaper

The Piece of Eight Foundation is building a decentralized innovation economy to facilitate individuals in cooperating with one another in the development of innovative software applications. With the advent of blockchain technology we have the ability to enable cooperation among participants worldwide like never before.  The Foundation facilitates cooperation between participants in the economy through the use of a blockchain-based reputation and coordination system, all enabled by the Piece of Eight token.

As software development continues down the path of decentralization, end-users will be able to exert greater influence on the way the applications they use improve and advance.  By offering a way for the end-user to directly impact the software development process, the resulting product will be more desirable to the user.

How We Use Blockchain

Build Blockchain AppsWhile any serious digital transformation initiative must consider what blockchain offers, low-code development platforms before 8base lack blockchain-specific capabilities. With 8base, application builders can easily develop on any blockchain they desire.

Power the 8gig Network8gig utilizes the Ethereum blockchain to capture an immutable reputation score for participants.

Power the Piece of 8 TokenOur ERC20 token and underlying smart contract is powered by the Ethereum blockchain.
