The Dragonchain platform attempts to simplify integration of real business applications onto a blockchain. Providing features such as easy integration, protection of business data, fixed 5 second blocks, currency agnosticism, and interop features, Dragonchain shines a new and interesting light on blockchain technology.
No blockchain expertise required!
- Ease of integration of existing systems
- Ease of development for traditional engineers and coders unfamiliar with blockchain, distributed systems, and cryptography
- Client server style and simple RESTful integration points for business integration
- Simple architecture (flexible and usable for unforeseen applications)
- Provide protection of business data by default
- Allow business focused control of processes
- Fixed length period blocks
- Short/fast blocks
- Currency agnostic blockchain (multicurrency support)
- No base currency
- Interoperability with other blockchains public and private
- Adoption of standards as they become available (see W3C Blockchain Community Group blockchain standardization)

Setup and Installation
Running Stack via Docker
Requires Docker version 1.13.0 and docker-compose version 1.10.0
Stack declaration is made via the docker-compose.yaml in the docker directory. Docker-compose.yml uses the dockerfile declarations that packages the project services into containers.
To bring up the stack:
cd docker docker-compose up -d
Postgres is exposed at port 5432
Query service is exposed at port 80
Transaction service is exposed at port 81
Processor service is exposed at port 8080
Requires Postgres 9.4+
cd <Dragonchain Home>/sql createuser blocky createdb -O blocky blockchain psql -U blocky -d blockchain -a -f depl.sql
Dragonchain utilized Python 2.7
To install Python library dependencies, run the following:
pip install -r requirements.txt
Message classes and RMI services are generated by thrift templates. If you have Apache Thrift installed you can regenerate these classes by using the gen_thrift setup command:
python setup.py gen_thrift
- Signing Key Generation
openssl ecparam -name secp224r1 -genkey -out <Dragonchain Home>/pki/sk.pem
- Verifying Key Generation
openssl ec -in pki/sk.pem -pubout -out <Dragonchain Home>/pki/pk.pem
- The signing key must be kept private. The pki directory is listed in .gitignore to prevent accidentally pushing keys to a public repository.
Pre-create a directory for log files before execution.
Set the PYTHONPATH variable
python <Dragonchain Home>/blockchain/transaction_svc.py --private-key <Dragonchain Home>/pki/sk.pem --public-key <Dragonchain Home>/pki/pk.pem
python <Dragonchain Home>/blockchain/query_svc.py [-p port] //defaults to 8080
localhost:8080/transaction/?create_ts=1475155787 //timestamp in Unix Epoch timecode - create_ts can be replaced with any of the header fields in a transaction
python <Dragonchain Home>/blockchain/processing.py --private-key <Dragonchain Home>/pki/sk.pem --public-key <Dragonchain Home>/pki/pk.pem --private-key (required - signing key for transaction service and processing module) --public-key (required) --host (defaults to localhost) --port, -p (defaults to 8080) --phase (required) For phase 5 node only: --bitcoin-network (mainnet/testnet/regtest)
Running a phase 5 node
The current implementation of the phase 5 node can connect to a local bitcoin node with wallet in order to run or can remotely connect to another bitcoin wallet running Bitcoin-Qt. Make sure that your bitcoin.conf file is in the proper location:
bitcoin.conf file contents
rpcuser="some username" rpcpassword="password for the node"
Optional for running on a remote node:
rpcconnect="bitcoin_node_ip_address" rpcport="bitcoin_node_port" (defaults to 8333)
Configuration within yaml files within configs directory.
BLOCKCHAIN_DB_HOSTNAME = Hostname of the database instance (default localhost)
BLOCKCHAIN_DB_PORT = Port of the database server (default 5432)
BLOCKCHAIN_DB_USERNAME = Database username (default blocky)
BLOCKCHAIN_DB_PASSWORD = Database password (default None)
BLOCKCHAIN_DB_NAME = Blockchain database (default blockchain, also selects
.yaml config and log file with same name)
Dragonchain uses a standard Feature Branch Workflow.
All feature development should take place in Git branch dedicated to that feature. A feature branch should be named starting with the ticket ID followed by a dash and a short description.
Issues are tracked within Github: Dragonchain Issues
Code should follow the PEP 8 Style Guide for Python code where possible.
