karma.link is a cross-platform RPC server that allows 'classic' IT systems to interact with smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain network through JSON.
karma.link aims to bridge the gap between 'classic' IT development and the blockchain world. In particular, karma.link exposes an easy-to-use JSON API that allows desktop, web & mobile applications to execute parts of their workload on the Ethereum blockchain. This makes it possible to build conventional apps that leverage blockchain technology where adequate.
In contrast to software like the Mist browser, karma.link is designed as an infrastructure tool for businesses. In this context, users act on behalf of the organization they represent, fulfilling their jobs as instructed by their employer instead of acting of their own accord.
Private Key Management
karma.link is designed with businesses in mind, where identities are associated with companies and organizations rather than individuals. As such, it is the system administrator's job to connect natural users with pertinent Ethereum identities, according to company policy and governance rules. This is why private key management is the most important point in karma.link's feature set.
Smart Contract Management
Writing smart contracts in Solidity is a straightforward task for a developer. However, deploying and managing contracts on a company scale requires tools; system administration tools. karma.link can read, understand and manage smart contracts. As such, it can give an operator valuable insights into their API surface. Futhermore, karma.link can deploy a managed contract easily and report on its state.
