MetaLair has undertaken work for clients across a number of market sectors since 2012. Some of the clients and work we have undertaken are listed below.
MetaLair has a strong working relationship with Ledger, having worked with them on a number of projects. Work has focused on integrating Ledger’s devices with MetaLair’s clients’ blockchains, allowing different implementations of software wallets using the devices to appropriately handle bespoke transactions on the clients’ cryptocurrency networks.
IOHK contracted MetaLair to assist with the integration of parts of its ADA network with Ledger Hardware wallets. This will provide Ledger integration to the network and allow ADA users to securely store their ADA currency in Ledger hardware ‘cold’ wallets.
The Cardano foundation contracted MetaLair to assist in the testing and configuring validators for its network. This will help provide a proof of stake mining system that supports the running of the Cardano network.
Our role focused on validating the research collated from various sources about the capabilities of cryptocurrencies and some related technologies. A number of errors in the research were identified, primarily because the research had based it evidence on statements from developers, not from an actual review of the source code which showed some of the capabilities to be quite different from what was claimed.
After a brief feasibility study we architected a relational database capable of residing within a blockchain. This provides a more descriptive intellectual property registration schema than any of the identified competing systems in the market space. The improved design allowed the intellectual property, its ownership and the specifics of its licencing to all be fully elaborated on the chain.
The Virtual Doctors
MetaLair enabled the Virtual Doctors to be the first charity to accept Bitcoin donations in the UK. More recently we have installed a hierarchical deterministic cold storage wallet with them to allow them to accept donations from private addresses, store their funds off-line and securely make payments online without exposing their private keys to the internet.
