SORAMITSU — Designing a Better World Through Decentralized Technologies
Our clients count on us to help them design and launch their next-generation financial applications, at a lower cost and in record time.
Introducing Bakong
We are pleased to announce Bakong, the collaboration between SORAMITSU and the National Bank of Cambodia. Bakong is Cambodia's only integrated payment system that allows you to do everything — digital wallets, mobile payments, online banking and financial applications — all in one place.
SORAMITSU is a global technology company delivering blockchain-based solutions for enterprises, universities, and governments. From the creation of domestic and cross-border payment systems, to the development of our own decentralized autonomous economy, our projects and use case studies represent the next-generation of fintech.
Our Projects and Use Case Studies
A collaboration between SORAMITSU and the National Bank of Cambodia, Bakong is a next-generation Real-Time Gross Payments System that promotes financial inclusion through a friendly yet powerful iOS and Android app.

RTGPS is the revolutionary and unique DLT core solution that allows for real-time gross domestic and cross-border payments between any and all account holders on a single platform.

The Bakong central bank digital currency (CBDC) is a secure alternative to paper bank notes designed to function within the parameters required by the banking system.

Using a secure and standardized digital currency as a means of payment can increase trust and confidence in the payment system.
KAGOME is a C++ implementation of the Polkadot Host developed by SORAMITSU and funded by a Web3 Foundation grant.

KAGOME will complement parallel development work in Rust, Golang, and Javascript, contributing to the overall resilience of the Polkadot ecosystem and opening up access to the large, well-established, and enterprise-friendly C++ developer community (estimated at 4.4 million). The Web3 grant also covers a C++ implementation of the libp2p modular networking stack.

With KAGOME, all SORAMITSU projects can be connected to blockchains supporting Polkadot, thus becoming a part of the next-generation decentralized web.
Fearless Wallet
Fearless Wallet — The DeFi Wallet for the future, is a tailor-made wallet for peer-to-peer transactions across the Kusama/Polkadot ecosystem, made with ♥ by SORAMITSU.

Fearless Wallet is unique on both technical and user-experience levels. Incorporating advanced features such as staking, governance, DEX integration, and the ability to buy tokens via credit card or payment service — within the context of a modern interface designed with simplicity and elegance in mind.

The goal is to expand access to decentralized finance by radically improving the usability of the notoriously complex functions of present-day wallets.
SORA is a new economic system that decentralizes the concept of a central bank as well as a network that implements a parachain to the Polkadot ecosystem, managed by the SORA community. SORAMITSU has also contributed to building the SORA network and Polkaswap, along with other builders in the community.

The SORA network excels at providing tools for decentralized applications that use digital assets, such as atomic token swaps, bridging tokens to other blockchains, and creating programmatic rules involving digital assets. The Polkaswap decentralized exchange is built on the SORA network.

Using the SORA app, made by SORAMITSU for iOS and Android, the SORA community can manage their assets and use built-in Polkaswap functionality.
Filecoin has announced two additional implementations of the Filecoin protocol: forest – being implemented in Rust by ChainSafe, and FUHON – being implemented in C++ by SORAMITSU. These implementations are in active development, and are now fully open for anyone to use or contribute to. Check them out on GitHub!

SORAMITSU has collaborated with the Web3 Foundation since 2018, receiving multiple grants to implement KAGOME, the Polkadot Host in the C++ programming language and to build Fearless Wallet — The DeFi Wallet for the future.

We maintain validators on the Polkadot and Kusama networks, so please feel free to nominate us!
