The Israeli startup also unveiled its dashboard, or “Digital Assets Control Panel”, which will enable users to issue and manage digital assets.
According to the company,
By wrapping the API/SDK functionalities with an easy, user friendly interface, we aimed to create the first control panel for digital assets that could be used as easily by developers or non-developers equally.
Control panel users will be able to create assets with pre-set templates for various use cases, securities, tickets and digital currencies, or create customized templates. After assets are created, the issuer will be able to manage their distribution, track them, analyze their usage and obtain API keys to operate them programmatically.
In addition, developers can create their own white-label mobile wallet for their assets by creating a custom made, branded mobile app.
Colu is taking registrations online for a waiting list and is gradually onboarding users to the dashboard.
