- What a blockchain is
- What a smart contract is
- How IoT devices can interact with blockchains
Description: Blockchain is best known as the innovative peer to peer distributed ledger technology underlying cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. However, the technology can also be used in engineering for the Internet of Things by creating a unique history of individual devices. In particular, by reducing complexity while proofing against tampering can enable a whole range of IOT applications that might previously been considered unfeasible.
After introducing the basic concepts of blockchain technology, this webinar will discuss use cases for IoT integration to blockchains. The presentation will go into the detail on the specific code for one use case that uses IoT and smart contracts on the Ethereal blockchain.
