Learn more about our partnership and an upcoming Ideathon for Dutch Blockchain Week.
We’re super excited to partner with IoTeX, the multiple award-winning blockchain for the Internet of Things (IoT). There are so many reasons why we think this partnership is one made in heaven that it’s impossible to list them all but you will find the most important points below. Cartesi and IoTex will kick our partnership off during The Dutch Blockchain Week, Dec 6 — Dec 10 with an Ideathon. If you really want to understand how this collaboration can lead to an affordable, end-to-end verification of data generated by IoT devices, join us for the presentation on the first day of the event!
Great news for the CTSI community — empowering developers
Through our partnership, we want to bring our communities of developers up to speed on the potential of our combined technologies. We’re looking forward to starting implementations of some of the first use cases with our technology and performing the technical integrations to support this. Together with our technology, we will be able to address much more sophisticated IoT-oriented solutions.
The IoTeX blockchain already powers real devices, including award-winning blockchain-powered cameras from Consumer Electronic Show (CES) and the pebble geo device, which is perfect for supply chain optimization in any industry.
Benefits for developers & end-users
We’re collaborating with IoTeX to provide IoT services with the safety and security benefits of blockchain. Furthermore, by bringing a Linux OS to blockchain, there‘s a rich set of possibilities for what can be developed for people all over the world. We’re providing a home to what’s next for the future of technology, by broadening the tools available to developers. We’re beginning with giving developers the freedom to choose programming languages and progressing to bring existing software libraries to our OS, allowing developers to create sophisticated and powerful solutions on the blockchain. Cartesi, the Blockchain OS, invites non-blockchain developers to explore the power of decentralization via the Cartesi & IoTeX infrastructure.
The advantages are also obvious for users of IoT technology. Cartesi OS has the potential to add a layer of privacy as well as more sophisticated data ownership management. Choose when, where, and with whom your data is shared.
Great news for the planet
IoTex is an environmentally friendly-oriented blockchain. We combine their blockchain technology, expertise on IoT, and hardware devices with our Layer-2 environmentally friendly blockchain agnostic technology. The integrated framework will promote a more powerful development framework for our communities, developers, and any companies interested in building fully trusted IoT solutions.
What’s Coming Up Next
Join us virtually next week, December 6th-10th 2021 at Dutch Blockchain Week, for our Ideathon looking at how IoT and blockchain can interact.
We’ll introduce IoTeX’s Pebble device and will be asking you to come up with a use case that will solve a problem or interesting challenge you see in your everyday life. Alongside a public community vote, we have an amazing jury who’ll help in deciding on a winner.
