Social Network with cryptocurrency
Why They Chose Us
A year ago, iSKY.SOLUTIONS was approached by Gion & Pacific Holdings Co Ltd, a prominent Japanese company operating in the field of trade. The client had a unique startup project idea but lacked expertise in the field. They turned to iSKY.SOLUTIONS for consulting and assistance.The project proposal took the form of a mobile application called iBusX. The primary objective behind iBusX was to provide a platform for creative individuals worldwide to showcase their work and connect with like-minded individuals during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic.
What challenge needed to be solved?/What challenge did we solve?
The iBusX platform aimed to provide a space for artists and creators to express themselves freely. One of the platform's most innovative features was its ability to allow users to monetize their video content, receive donations from supporters, and even purchase and store iBx cryptocurrency in their personal digital wallets.
What obstacles did we encounter?
During the development and implementation of the iBusX platform we faced various obstacles that required specific actions to be taken. One significant challenge was the presence of spammers on the platform, which affected the quality of content and user experience. The team had to take necessary actions to combat spamming activities and ensure that the platform's integrity was maintained.
Another challenge faced by the team was the excessive abuse of the referral program by some users. The team had to devise a solution to prevent such fraudulent activities and ensure that the referral program was used fairly by all users.
What should the ideal solution look like?
The ideal solution would involve the seamless integration of the iBx cryptocurrency onto the iBusX platform, as well as optimizing the video uploading process from mobile devices. The videos would also be sorted into categories for easy searching and browsing. The platform should have a user-friendly donation system for supporting talented artists and creators. Finally, the mobile app should allow users to buy, sell, and exchange iBx coins for their convenience.
What were the factors that led the client to choose us?
We at iSKY.SOLUTIONS are experts in developing innovative solutions for businesses worldwide. With our deep expertise in mobile app development, blockchain, and cryptocurrency integration, we are uniquely positioned to help companies navigate the complex digital landscape and achieve their goals.
Our team of highly skilled developers and designers has a proven track record of delivering high-quality products that meet the unique needs of each of our clients. Our experience and knowledge enable us to provide tailored solutions to businesses, such as the iBusX platform.
This project required a deep understanding of blockchain and cryptocurrency integration, as well as mobile app development, and we had the expertise and knowledge needed to deliver a solution that met the client's specific requirements.
What technologies have we chosen and why?
We decided to use several technologies when developing the iBusX mobile application, including Web3 and Solidity for the cryptocurrency aspect of the platform. Web3 is a collection of libraries that allow developers to interact with Ethereum blockchain networks, which is essential for handling cryptocurrency transactions. Solidity is a programming language used to write smart contracts for Ethereum-based applications, which makes it an ideal choice for implementing cryptocurrency features.
For the mobile application, we chose to use the Flutter framework due to its ability to build high-performance and visually appealing apps quickly.
AWS was selected as the hosting provider for the server to ensure reliability and scalability for the application.
As for the backend, we opted for both PHP and Node.js to handle different aspects of the application's functionality. PHP is a popular server-side scripting language that has a large community and is well-suited for handling complex backends. Node.js is an excellent choice for handling the app's real-time features, as it has a fast runtime and is great for building scalable, event-driven applications.

How did we implement the project?
A dedicated team from the client's side collaborated with us using the SCRAM methodology. In the extensive discovery phase, we obtained a comprehensive understanding of the task and its requirements, created technical documentation, and identified potential areas for lacking expertise. We immediately began addressing these gaps. This discovery phase helped us identify potential risks and prevent most issues before the development phase commenced. We also ensured that the client was well-informed about all aspects, risks, and stages of the project.
With the SCRUM methodology, we advanced with each sprint to keep on schedule. As we initiated the development of the IBX cryptocurrency, we concurrently started working on the social media platform. The system initially could not modify videos, but after completing the basic functionality of the social network, integrating it with the Web3 API, and enabling cryptocurrency transactions, we focused on optimizing the platform. We developed a video converter, a video categorization system, and a donation system for each video. Finally, we implemented a system for buying and exchanging coins on the client's website.
Our team's expertise in mobile app development, blockchain, and cryptocurrency integration allowed us to create a cutting-edge platform that exceeded our client's expectations.
The iBusX mobile app is now available on both IOS and Android, and it has received many downloads from the App Store and Google Play. The app's user-friendly interface and seamless integration with the iBx cryptocurrency make it a favorite among crypto enthusiasts and content creators alike.
Furthermore, we developed an admin panel that enables our client to manage and monitor the platform's processes effortlessly. This feature has saved them valuable time and resources and has contributed to the platform's overall success.
We are pleased to report that the iBusX platform has attracted more than 1,000 new users since its launch. Our client's marketing efforts, combined with our user-friendly design and optimized loading speed, have contributed to this impressive growth.
Finally, the development process was smooth and transparent, thanks to our team's clear communication and project management skills.The product was delivered on time and within budget, demonstrating our commitment to meeting our clients' needs and expectations
Overall, the iBusX project showcases our team's ability to develop innovative solutions that meet our clients' unique needs. We are excited to continue delivering high-quality products and services that make a difference in the digital world.
