Blockchain based Internet of Things

IBM in collaboration with Samsung developed Autonomous Decentralized Peer-to-Peer Telemetry (ADEPT). It was built to showcase decentralized IoT.

Under ADEPT project proof of concept, a washing machine autonomously ordered washing powder, service parts and a Large Format Display (LFD) autonomously displayed advertising content. this experiment showed that every device can become a point of transaction and value creation.

The IoT functions without a centralized intermediary was based on –

  • Peer-to-peer messaging
  • Distributed information sharing
  • Autonomous device coordination

ADEPT used open source protocols – Telehash for messaging, BitTorrent for file sharing and Ethereum for autonomous device coordination function like device registration, rules based engagements and contracts.
