Graphene lab is a team of experienced developers specializing in Graphene and EOSIO based chains. We have been operating in the market since 2015, developing projects using Graphene and actively educating russian-speaking community.
We offer a wide range of services: development of blockchain platforms from scratch and applications on the basis of already existing platforms, development of smart-contracts, creation of forks, complete rework of the product or extension of its functionality, integration of the blockchain to the business processes, consulting and audit.

PokerChained - first decentralized, fully on-chain Texas Hold’em. It implements the Mental Poker algorithm and doesn’t have back-end code at all - all the game’s logic is implemented in smart-contracts. Shuffling of cards is also decentralized: it happens on players' devices only - this way no one knows players' cards except for themselves.

Status since March 2019 the game is in open beta. More than 100 000 hands were played in half a year 2019

New BitShares-Core Development Team

Current core team of developers has a monopoly. We believe that lack of healthy competition always leads to the lack of growth and decreasing quality of work. Also, the high price of the current worker proposal doesn’t meet the expectations of the majority of the community.
We invite the BitShares community to vote for a new development team. We guarantee very low rates and 100% immersion in work. In addition, we are ready to actively cooperate with various representatives of the community in order to make really needed and popular improvements.

We are ready to cooperate with other developers. In case there will be such a request, a discussion will be held with the community and open positions could be added when starting the worker.


Our main goal is to create the fair system of governance, increase the profitability of the platform and make it comfortable for all its users. It is only possible to achieve this by having a strong vision for the future of the BitShares – and we believe that it needs to be formed by close interaction between the community and the developers. We plan to hold an open discussion with the BitShares' community to realize where our efforts should be applied and what features are needed most.
