APIs drive the new digital business and are the key ingredient of digital solutions and centerpiece of API Economy. Until now, APIs have been centralized. Kumuluz dAPI platform introduces fully decentralized APIs utilizing blockchain technology. dAPIs make decentralized applications (dApps) truly decentralized.

Decentralized application architecture with Kumuluz dAPIs
For a typical digital application you'll need 1 million lines of code and at least 6 months.
You'll need 20 dAPIs, 10 000 lines of code and only 6 weeks for the same application.
Make your blockchain applications (dApps) truly decentralized by decentralizing APIs and the business logic. Adopt the dAPIs with microservice or serverless architecture for your services.
Develop applications by composing dAPIs instead of writing code from scratch. Shorten time-to-market by an order of magnitude by using pre-built dAPIs.
Write your code once and deploy it to any decentralized or centralized cloud. Use any blockchain and smart contract technology you need. Remove technology-related risks.
Decentralized APIs assure that your applications have no single point of failure. This improves fault tolerance, resilience, trust and allows for self-healing. Your digital solutions will never fail again.
Kumuluz dAPI platform introduces a few core technology innovations that enable developers to build truly decentralized blockchain applications and digital products in the fastest way possible without any compromises in scalability, performance, security, resilience and decentralization.
Kumuluz is bringing together the greatest tech minds, decentralized APIs on blockchain, the microservice and serverless architectures and the best development practices to create a next-generation digital software platform that will revolutionize the way applications are build. It will enable developing personalized applications with the speed of a software factory in a decentralized, community-driven way.
dAPIs are the next generation fully decentralized APIs, designed for decentralized execution in a similar way as the Blockchain distributed ledger is used for decentralized storage. dAPIs can be implemented as decentralized microservices or serverless. They are permissioned or permissionless, operation or event driven, support a variety of protocols, such as REST, gRPC, GraphQL, event streaming, etc., improved resilience, fault-tolerance, scalability and security.
Kumuluz will provide a rich library of pre-built dAPIs with common functionalities that almost every application requires, such as Payment, Customer Management, KYC/AML, Shopping Cart, Order Management, Invoicing, Billing, Subscription Management, integration with Crypto-exchanges, Crypto token management, etc. Use Kumuluz dAPI digital platform as an easy way to compose dAPIs into working applications with no or minimal coding.
Marketplace is the app store for pre-built dAPIs. You can search the marketplace to find, select and use dAPIs that your application requires. You can also customize existing dAPIs to adapt them to your requirements. In the marketplace you will find some dAPIs which are free to use and some, which require payment.
A community of developers will contribute dAPIs to the marketplace. Do you require functionalities not found in marketplace? Engage the community and ask them to develop specific dAPIs. Miners will test, verify and validate dAPIs to guarantee bug and error-free operation and 24/7 availability of dAPIs.
dAPIs provide an innovative, smart-contract based licensing and IP management model, which allows dAPI publishers to specify pricing models that are fulfilled automatically each time somebody uses a dAPI.
Kumuluz helps blockchain teams to really succeed with their revolutionary ideas and get a competitive edge on the market.
If you’re anyhow involved in blockchain development, join the Kumuluz community. Let’s make the world truly decentralized!
We have been working on (centralized) APIs and microservices since 2013. The microservice framework KumuluzEE has been the front-runner in terms of agility, start-up speed and memory consumption and offers together with API management unique features for managing containerized APIs and microservices. It has been released to open source and used in several companies all over the world for running their production systems.
We have received several international awards. Our team members are well known experts, who have published several books, articles, conference papers and blogs. Read more about our beginnings and our story in the timeline.

“Digital platforms are rapidly moving up the hype cycle, illustrating the new IT realities that are possible by providing the underlining platforms that will fuel the future. Technologies such as Blockchain are poised to create the most transformative and dramatic impacts in the next five to 10 years.”
Some statistics for the Kumuluz dAPIs target groups:
The nature of startups is to be fast and adapt quickly. Most of the traditional startups explore how they can leverage blockchain technology. Kumuluz platform can help them with the transition and expand the competitive edge.
All the awesome ICO startups that are developing different blockchain solutions need tools to speed up their development, deliver solutions on time and reduce the risks. Kumuluz is the perfect digital software platform that helps them reach their goals faster and with less risk.
Big brands and multinationals don’t want to miss the blockchain revolution. That’s why most of the enterprises are developing their own solutions based on the blockchain technology and Kumuluz is a great solution for them to speed up the transition.
Many blockchain solutions can improve government efficiency. That’s why many governments around the world are already considering different applications and digital solutions for citizens they could bring on the municipal or state level.
Blockchain has an important stand in the open-source community and in commercial projects. Kumuluz can be used to speed up the development of such projects and reduce technical and other risks.
Developers and freelancers who work on different blockchain projects constantly look for new platforms and frameworks to improve their productivity. Based on the initial feedback, they love Kumuluz platform as other stakeholders do.
Adriatic Slovenica is using Kumuluz API and microservices for internal systems and partner integration. Kumuluz API is powering the API economy marketplace for insurance products, currently used by over 3000 partner companies in South-east Europe. Furthermore, Adriatic Slovenica is using Kumuluz Payment for online payments in its digital channels, such as Wiz. Kumuluz has enabled us easier integration and better productivity and is very important for our digital channels.
Several projects, companies, start-ups, ICOs and development teams already use the Kumuluz platform, including the Kumuluz API Management, microservice framework and pre-built APIs and microservices, such as the Payment API, Shopping Cart, Invoice, Fulfilment and others.
Our team members have used Kumuluz on several industry and research projects and have cooperated with a variety of partner organizations, earning trust and reputation among partners.
In a world controlled by multinational corporations, blockchain is a bright spot, the enabler for the transformation towards decentralized, peer-to-peer, middleman-free economy and society. Thousands of ICO startups, developers, companies and enthusiast are developing disruptive, decentralized digital solutions, disruptive business models and decentralized autonomous organizations (DAO) with a common goal – to return the economy and society back to the people, to decentralize the world and make it a better place – for us and for our children.
We at Kumuluz are strong believers and supporters of decentralization. Our vision is to accelerate the decentralization and help ICOs, organizations and developers to create their decentralized application and digital solutions faster and with less effort. We provide the most sophisticated digital platform for blockchain applications.
Imagine a world where decentralized applications are not developed by writing code from scratch. Instead, they can be composed out of pre-built dAPIs. Now imagine a world, where you can shorten the development cycle by an order of magnitude, considerably reduce the time-to-market and still deliver state-of-the-art, secure, scalable, fault tolerant and reliable solutions that are flexible to adapt and modify.
We at Kumuluz make this world a reality with the help of the Kumuluz digital platform and decentralized APIs. Join us, become a part of our community and help us make the world decentralized even sooner.
