BlockCAT (BCAT) create, manage, and deploy smart contracts with No programming required.
What is BlockCAT?
BlockCAT lets anyone create, manage, and deploy smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain with just a few clicks. No programming required.
“Our mission is to provide the world a safe way of leveraging inexpensive smart contracts on the Ethereum network and beyond, creating intelligent and automated economic activity at scales not previously possible.” Our team firmly believes in the disruptive power of smart contracts, when made accessible. Whether the purpose is personal, business, or otherwise, accessible smart contracts have the potential to be the basis for emerging technology and economic and social activity. We see a future where smart contracts are used by non-technical individuals to buy and sell goods and services, finalize no-nonsense business deals without lawyers in seconds, implement intelligent on-premise and internet-based checkout systems, automate repetitive enterprise-grade fund transfer processes, and create entirely new organizational hierarchies with the press of a button – amongst many other possibilities, all with trust and simplicity. BlockCAT will be a timely and influential platform ready to usher in an explosion in the number of smart contracts utilized.
BlockCAT has the following core objectives:
1. Build and remain as the de facto platform for creating and deploying smart contracts
in an accessible fashion by delivering a device-agnostic web portal and a broad set of
configurable templates for rapidly constructing, deploying, and optionally extracting
2. Make smart contracts quicker to use, more efficient, easier to understand, and less
costly than current agreements, contracts, and multi-step payment solutions.
3. Provide smart contracts that are reliable and inexpensive enough that even the most
technically acclimated smart contract developers will gain value from using our prebuilt
or customized contracts, at a fraction of the time and cost of manual deployment.
4. Implement the tooling necessary to create smart contracts that have minimal risk of
5. Provide integration with a variety of other valuable services such as prediction markets,
payment interfaces, and digital asset/currency exchanges.
6. Provide a marketplace for curating and selling smart contracts created by the worldwide
In summary, BlockCAT aims to make using smart contracts so simple, reliable, and, costeffective
that they become widely adopted, improving peoples’ lives and making society more
In our future, everyone uses smart contracts
- Effortless smart contract creation that anybody can deploy.
- Mobile and desktop interface to manage your contracts.
- Design custom contracts that meet your specific needs.
- Chain or combine multiple contracts to build out entire business payment models.
- Transfer funds automatically and globally, at great scale.
- Secure business deals – without lawyers.
- Transaction verification – remove the risk of sending Ether to the wrong address.
- Develop and sell your custom contracts on our decentralized marketplace.
- And much, much more… including applications that no one has thought of yet!
While far from an exhaustive list, the following examples provide some insight into the
general idea and class of applications that BlockCAT targets. Please note that this list in no
way represents the set of complete features ready to be used. This document is not intended,
at any point, to state or imply the currently implemented features of BlockCAT.
Safe Remote Purchases and Escrows
If you wish to buy from a stranger online, you are required to trust that stranger honors their
agreement in sending the goods. Similarly, the seller must trust the buyer is honest about
receiving the goods. With smart contracts, the system becomes trustless as both parties must
uphold their agreement to receive the goods or funds. With BlockCAT, anybody can set up
these contracts on a per-use-basis without needing to write a single line of code, opening
up the world of trustless online purchasing and other forms of escrows without the need for
Prediction Market Integration
Prediction markets, such as Augur  and Gnosis  provide an easy way to access external
information not typically available to smart contracts, such as the results of elections. Block-
CAT can leverage this information to provide simple ways of automating transactions that
occur according to the results of this information.
Platforms such as Kickstarter  or IndieGoGo  are popular places to provide the initial
funds for large scale projects. However, the project creators have little to no accountability
to actually create and deliver their proposed project. BlockCAT will provide smart contract
based crowdfunding that guarantees accountability from the creators. This additional trust
throughout the whole crowdfunding system will therefore encourage more money to be
invested into projects. Additionally, BlockCAT will provide payment platform integrations
so funders not holding digital currencies can effortlessly contribute.
Tamper Resistant Polls and Voting
Traditional online polling systems have weak trust and are vulnerable to attack due to their
centralized nature. Polls as smart contracts can provide strong and transparent voting systems
that operate completely autonomously. Decentralizing the entire process guarantees
that miscounts of ballots are impossible. Additionally, the immutable and open nature of
the blockchain means that anybody can audit the process and verify the results independently
BlockCAT ensures that this process is painless to setup and eliminates the need to manually
program each poll, transforming the lengthy and tedious process into just a few clicks on our
Online auctions are vulnerable to many methods of user manipulation. Both bidders and
sellers can fail to uphold their promise to pay or deliver goods once the auction has ended.
Malicious users or bots can place fictitious bids to artificially inflate prices, and throw the
bidding process into disarray. Centralized auction services can fail to resolve user conflicts
and freeze funds for large amounts of time. BlockCAT will prevent these problems through
decentralized smart contracts, ensuring all parties involved must conduct the auction in a
fair and transparent way.
Proof of Existence
Typically, in order to certify ownership or existence of an item or idea, a centralized party
must serve as an authoritative source of truth that others must trust. Using smart contracts,
this ownership data can be written permanently into the blockchain, where it remains
extremely resistant to malicious change or accidental data loss. BlockCAT makes it easy
for anyone to perform proof of existence, by providing externally verifiable procedures for
anybody to confirm the block-chain data is valid.

This Token Mechanics and Sale Details summary does not constitute an offer to sell or a
solicitation of an offer to buy BlockCAT’s token, called “CAT”, and is provided for informational
purposes only in respect of BlockCAT’s platform. The following summary reflects
BlockCAT’s current expectations with respect to token mechanics and sale of CAT, which
are subject to change.
In the near future, the BlockCAT token (CAT) will be sold. As part of this sale, a fixed
pool of CAT will generated. No further CAT will be created in the future. Once the sale
concludes, a portion of CAT tokens will be allocated and given to the BlockCAT team as an
incentive for the success of our platform, and a separate portion will be held as a reserve pool
and expenditure fund. The community will hold 79% of all CAT, the BlockCAT team will
hold 20% of CAT (subject to a freeze period), and 1% will be allocated for the reserve pool.
CAT serves several key operational functions with respect to the BlockCAT platform for its
1. CAT will be the only means of paying for contract deployment.
2. CAT owners will be allowed to participate in milestone completion votes, which will
be used to unlock reserves for BlockCAT expenditure.
3. CAT will serve as the primary mechanic for verifying third-party marketplace smart
contracts in a decentralized and secure way.
When BlockCAT smart contracts are deployed by users, the CAT that is paid as a fee will be
re-sold and circulated back into the ecosystem at market value.
Our team wants to proceed with due care and caution to minimize potential asset loss for
users. As these smart contracts are deployed on the Ethereum blockchain as immutable code,
it is particularly crucial that everything is thoroughly battle hardened and easily updateable
to handle bugs. As part of the development process, we will source independent professional
software auditing for all smart contracts, in addition to our internal verification pipeline –
this comprehensive testing routine is allocated its necessary portion of time and is reflected
in the paced release schedule. BlockCAT features will be released in the following order:
