Decentralized apps on
The Blockchain OS

Bold, pioneering, ground breaking use cases for a better world, supported by Lab grants.


Locus brings AI and biometrics to Cartesi. Using the Cartesi Machine Linux environment, they create previously impossible DApps with mainstream libraries like OpenCV.


Dakai is prototyping a DEX for Cartesi Rollups. Based on Cartesi's scalable, decentralized Linux infrastructure, it keeps the strong security guarantees of existing DEXs while going beyond automated market making (AMM) to give users an order book experience, like CEXs.


Sotatek is building a DApp for decentralized, trustworthy ride-sharing. Geofences establish the permissible zones for a journey, and deviations might result in a fee for the driver.


The INPETU Institute and UFF are building a public bus monitoring system that can issue fines for e.g. delays, while still being trustless and decentralized.


Like Texas HODL'em, Productive’s battleship game has hidden aspects that can only be disclosed after the game, preventing any party from cheating.


A puzzle-RPG mashup that makes full use of Cartesi’s Linux environment. Characters are NFTs with attack or defense bonuses or handicaps, depending on their traits and the matched puzzle pieces.

Prototypes for a fairer, better game.
