Blockchain is all the hype in the web3 tech space. However, there are overwhelmingly many cases where blockchain just doesn't make sense as a technical foundation. Some of blockchain's most powerful features, such as it's distributed nature and publicly verifiable cryptographic ledger, isn't needed in many private business cases.

That's why we created the Entitychain – a simple yet powerful ledger of events that are tied to entities (objects). Entitychain is founded on our extensive experience building web platforms for business-critical operations, with simplicity and the human at the center. We wanted something that is easy to read and understand, while providing a robust and extensible platform. It's very simple: everything in the Entitychain is a string of events that link entities together – forming the ledger. The ledger (the string of events) can be viewed in it's entirety or just a specific section that is relevant to you. You can focus on any entity or event and explore its graph in the Entitychain universe. And, importantly, the ledger allows for easy diagnostics and tracking, as well as management over any entities lifespan. Oh, and it's lightweight and fast as hell.

Our in-house Machinata web platform now comes with an Entitychain module and editor. It allows anyone to easily design and manage an Entitychain, and it allows developers to plugin data and events to the Entitychain with ease. Try it out yourself in the latest Machinata builds.
