Challenges Will Define the Emerging Blockchain for IOT Space While Creating Roadmaps, Standards and Guidelines for Implementation; The First Challenge Will Be Smart E-Mobility
The Trusted IoT Alliance (TIoTA), an ecosystem of more than 50 companies working together to build open source trusted systems for IoT with blockchain and related technologies, and MachNation, a global independent IoT research and benchmarking firm, today introduced an initiative to stage a series of Trusted IoT Challenges worldwide.
“MachNation is delighted to join TIoTA in the development of these challenges,” said Steve Hilton, President of MachNation. “As a firm dedicated to researching and benchmarking IoT platforms and solution, MachNation recognizes the value of identifying leading solutions in the market. As IoT, blockchain and related technologies continue to grow, having proven ways to benchmark and improve these solutions is critically important.”
“The intent of the challenges is to spur innovation by combining blockchain and related technologies and IoT while developing roadmaps, templates, standards and guidelines,” said Zaki Manian, Executive Director of TIoTA. “Output from the challenges will help provide best practices and deliverables in the blockchain for IoT space and bring visibility to the Proof of Concept work underway at the Alliance and in the industry. We are looking forward to working with MachNation as we drive the industry forward.”
Sign-up and challenge guidelines are available on the TIoTA website. Dr. Alexy Khrabrov, TIoTA’s Chief Community Officer, will run the challenges initiative. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss partnerships, participation and details of the challenges.
The winners will gain direct access to the Enterprise members of the Alliance to develop products and services based on the winning designs, including a paid Proof of Concept. MachNation will publish a report describing the winning solution. An overall winner will be awarded in each category, along with Best Business Contribution, Best Technical Contribution, and Best Usability, depending on the challenge.
