  • Fanattac (Development)

    Fanattac is the only social music network that loyalizes fans to artists. The social music ecosystem generates a unique, winning value proposition.

  • Arquitectura Configurable para el Pago de Servicios por Internet (Other amazing things)

    I am the author of "Arquitectura configurable para el pago de servicios por Internet." We aim to provide a solution for the supply of online services, a safe platform that guarantees both customers and service providers secure payments and service quality. The trade platform for services includes a payment system with escrow mode (retention), where an escrow agent will retain the money provided by the client until the conditions of service have been successfully and both parties agree to it. This system will be supported by different payment mechanisms that have already been tested, and are currently used in large eCommerce sites. To further ensure quality service, there will be a credible system to evaluate providers through various indicators such as responsiveness, costs, claims treatments, and reliability, which will allow customers to know the reputation of a service before an acquisition.
