Filament Launches New Blockchain Development Kit for IoT Developers

By

In a recent release, Filament, provider of enterprise blockchain solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), announced that it has launched its new Blocklet Foundation Kit. Reportedly designed for embedded and hardware developers focused on the Internet of Things (IoT), this blockchain development kit provides hands-on experience with Filament’s Blocklet technology, and allows users to generate IoT blockchain transactions on-device and demonstrate smart contract functionality.

“We are the only company to provide embedded technology for blockchain transactions starting with the origination of data, at the edge,” said Frank Friesacher, EVP, product, Filament. “This new kit gives embedded developers hands-on experience to evaluate and demonstrate how IoT devices and sensors at the edge can integrate and securely transact in a blockchain without incurring the infrastructure overhead typically found in today's IoT and blockchain deployments. With the increasing interest in enterprise blockchain solutions, we created this as a clear pathway to proof of concept and pilot projects that lay the foundation for successful production deployments.”

The Blocklet Foundation Kit’s preconfigured Blocklet-enabled hardware, software and resources is designed to be used online or offline to demonstrate attestation-driven smart contracts and machine-to-machine (M2M) transactions between devices on a distributed ledger with Filament’s Blocklet technology.

“Filament has been an exceptional resource in our exploration of blockchain technology and the proof of concept projects we have been conducting with our partners,” said Frank E. Oriold, EVP, operations and business development, Kleinschmidt. “Blocklet's unique capabilities and how they might be leveraged in the supply chain/logistics space were immediately apparent to us. Filament’s flexibility in working with our team to create solutions that fit within our environment makes them stand out as a provider.”

Also today, Filament announced Accelerator Services for companies seeking blockchain consulting support in developing new business models and revenue streams through the adoption of enterprise blockchain solutions. The Blocklet Foundation Kit and Accelerator Services are currently available to enterprises and industrial corporations.
