Rehive consists of three product layers that are all interconnected: Platform, Applications, and Extensions.
At the heart of Rehive is a cloud-based transaction ledger and user management system. Rehive Platform is similar to Firebase, but tailored for building fintech apps. Customers can build on the Platform directly or accelerate product development by also adding Applications and Extensions.
The core transaction ledger is designed to be highly flexible to configure a mix and match of accounts, currencies and transaction subtypes with advanced fintech-specific features such as limits, fees, tiers and more. The ledger can represent any format of asset classes, whether these be points, fiat currencies, cryptocurrencies or even securities. In most cases you still have to do your own custom integrations with existing payment rails and aggregators but we’re continuously working on making this easier.
It is important to note that Rehive is only providing the ledger technology. We’re not the custodial of the underlying asset. You are required to hold the appropriate licenses for providing financial services based on your use case, whether this be points, rewards, fiat, crypto, securities etc.
The user management system is designed to help you manage groups, permissions, authentication, and more. As an admin, you have full access to all user activities whereas users can only access their own accounts.
Rehive Platform API is open for anyone to get started and all management features are available via the dashboard.
Note that Rehive Platform is proprietary backend software. We do not sell a White-label Software License for Rehive Platform. The backend infrastructure and code base is proprietary and only accessible via the APIs or admin dashboard. (Our White-label Software Licenses only applies to specific frontend applications.)
The following applications are available:
White-Label Hosting for selected applications are available for Premium subscribers at an additional monthly fee per application. The Premium package also includes a White-label Software License for selected applications whereby you’ll enjoy the benefit of access to the latest frontend source code to easily make your own customizations. Note: Once you start making customizations to the code base you have to manage your own hosting.
Grey-Label Hosting is more affordable and works similar to Slack where your users have to install the Rehive App to get started.
Extensions are developed on top of Rehive Platform. We’ve created a store for Rehive Extensions that can be activated from the Dashboard.
Currently all extensions are developed exclusively by Rehive, but we plan to open this for third party developers in the future. If you’re building your own custom features on the Rehive Platform, you’re effectively building an extension.
The following Rehive Extensions are available:
Payment Processors [coming soon]
Our flagship extension is a fully integrated custodial solution for tokenized assets on the Stellar network.
Similarly to Rehive Platform, Rehive Extensions are also designed with flexibility and configurability in mind. For example, you want to record a ‘reward’ transaction using a custom transaction subtype- it is possible to change the subtype on the extension as needed. However, Rehive always defines a specific configuration and best practices when building extensions to make things easier to get started.
