A2B: Anything to Blockchain
“A2B: Anything to Blockchain” is a Blockchain accessibility platform being researched & developed in the Blockchain R&D Lab. The objective of this research project is to make blockchain technology accessible and affordable.


A2B will allow anyone (individual users or corporate users) who wants to save anything (text, files, etc.) to blockchain using a Web 2 interface (username and password). We are researching on ways to provide easy access to post information to various blockchains like Polygon Matic, Ethereum, Solana, Algorand and so on.

We are researching on ways to offer Web3 functionality via a Web2 interface. For examples, the A2B app will use its native wallets to accept transactions from users and post it to different blockchain thereby removing the need for end users to manage their wallets or public and private keys. We will have teams researching on appropriate UI designs that will help with this reverse transition (Web3 to Web 2). This will involve designing UI elements and testing it with focussed groups and interviews.

This project will follow design science research methodology and validation via user interviews. The first release will include Polygon Matic and Ethereum and later we will add other blockchains. We are simplifying access to blockchain. This is the first research objective – simplicity / accessibility.

A2B will allow companies to affordably adopt Blockchain without significant upfront investment in developing customised blockchain solutions. We are researching on ways to develop industry specific blockchain templates that companies can customise to suit their individual needs and decide what to capture and record on the blockchain.

For example, we have developed a blockchain template for the wine industry. Any winery can now easily create an account on A2B and customise the Wine template and start capture information and recording it on the blockchain.

The template concept aims to completely eliminate the need for doing any custom blockchain development, instead companies can find a suitable template and customise it to their needs. It’s a completely “no-code” approach. Anyone can design or edit these templates and start recording information to the blockchain.

Effective ways to designing templates is a research challenge and we will have research teams working on developing innovative ways to design such templates. These templates will be validated with end users and we will gather feedback to continuously improve the templates. Automatic template creation will be another research direction.

We are making blockchain adoption / development affordable. This is the second research objective – increase adoption via making blockchain affordable.
