NotaryRoad | 🥇 of Next Big Thing

What Is NotaryRoad?

NotaryROAD is a Web2-Web3 solution that streamlines the process of filing notarizations, making it faster & more convenient. NotaryROAD automates the creation, verification & storage of data records.

What Does It Do?

Notary ROAD provides new and better options for satisfying old standards of notary services for both signers and notaries.

As a signer, you will be able to book an appointment with a notary, upload necessary documents for identity verification, select a notary service and make a payment. Then, upon successful payment, you will be directed to a notary session page, which will have details for your session where you can book a video conference with a notary and get your documents notarized and recorded safely, securely, and adhering to all legal requirements.

As a notary, you can subscribe to leverage white-label Notary ROAD’s platform and offer your own services without having to recreate the wheel or do any real technical lifting.

Storsign |🥈 of Next Big Thing

What Is Storsign?

Storsign is a Web3 implementation of an e-signature collection built on the Oort blockchain using Storj’s storage solutions.

What Does It Do?

Storsign is an application that enables anyone to create and collect e-signature against documents without a vendor agreement or expertise of Web3.

  • Each packet of documents for e-signature is made accessible at a Storj URL. Users are not required to connect or authorize transactions from a wallet to use the app.
  • Hosted documents and the request are immutable.
  • Request indexed on Oort marks the progress of an e-signature request. Building on Oort’s blockchain ensures the authenticity and complete ownership of e-signatures signed.

Mangotech | 🥉 of Next Big Thing

What Is Mangotech?

Mangotech is a provider of IoT devices for bee farming using Storj DCS.

What Does It Do?

Mangotech developed IoT devices that monitor the temperature, humidity, and CO2 levels in bee hives, using Storj DCS. Farmers will receive all information monitored on hives through the Mangotech website. Decentralization for IoT devices helps against security hacks. Farmers can get better security and better uptime for their IoT devices. IoT device sends information like temperature and humidity to the node js server, then the server converts this information to a text file and uploads it to Storj DCS. By using Mangotech’s IoT device, Bee farmers don’t have to manually check bee hives, as they can get email alerts if bee hives have reached critical levels of temperature or humidity.
