Most people have heard of Bitcoin, and also know that blockchain is one of the underlying concepts behind this cryptocurrency. However, the ability to share information via a shared, trusted distributed network with embedded business logic also has many potential benefits for an IoT deployment. Join this session to hear about blockchain and associated concepts such as smart contracts, and what we, as technologists, should be thinking about as we look to apply these concepts across various IoT use cases.
Session will involve a discussion of utilizing technologies related to blockchain (distributed ledgers, smart contracts, cryptography, consensus) as a mechanism for building a smart IoT network. Associated technologies such as offchain analytics and graph storage will also be discussed as part of a broader blockchain-led IoT enterprise architecture. Various sample use cases will be discussed, as well as items that must be considered for a successful blockchain enterprise implementation.
