Exploring the Role of Blockchain in IoT and Machine Age

Science fiction writers of the 20th Century visioned a world where machines took over the world, to humanity’s great dismay. Well, things are not quite there yet, but advances in machine communication make up for it. Advances in communication, artificial intelligence, and processing speeds have come together to beautiful effect. 

Accordingly, we live in an era of unprecedented automation and technological integration. Let’s explore the Internet of Things for a greater understanding of this sector.

The Internet of Things (IoT) 

IoT has become a catchphrase in modern tech circles that can make it seem more complicated than it really is. It generally refers to smart devices that rely on the internet to communicate with each other. They feature processors, sensors, and modern communication software to manage data intelligently. 

The most basic example is modern home equipment, where devices like refrigerators, smart TVs, automatic air conditioning, and other household appliances communicate. IoT devices primarily function without human intervention though humans can set vital parameters for their functionality. Companies can use various IoT devices for operations, such as supply chain management, to track their products effectively. 

Advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) contribute a great deal to more efficient IoT devices. Machines can learn, collect and process data faster. The ability of machines to analyze data and take action is the essence of AI and machine learning. IoT devices allow people to work smart. The extra automation is incredible for businesses with better insight into their systems and cutting overhead costs. Accordingly, businesses can reduce wastage and improve service delivery to their customers.

IoT devices are necessary to remain competitive in modern business. They will continue to grow in importance as enterprises continue to appreciate the competitive edge of smart devices. Such competitive solutions require a rethink in business approach, especially for businesses that have manufacturing, transportation, and utility needs. 

Benefits of the blockchain in IoT 

The blockchain is a decentralized, immutable ledger that allows parties to transact in a trustless fashion. To unpack that more; trustless does not necessarily mean contracting with untrustworthy parties. It means they don’t have to trust or rely on each other’s promises. See, when making a contract or a deal, the parties usually have their respective obligations, such as services in exchange for money. However, one of the parties can breach their contract by not performing their terms. Blockchain smart contracts allow parties to transact without relying on trust because the contract performance is digital and automatic. 

Additionally, the blockchain is a permanent record that is impossible to alter retroactively unilaterally. This permanent record means that IoT data can be secure from retrospective tampering. With devices around us constantly churning out information and relying on each other’s accuracy, having a tamper-proof record is essential. Besides, modern blockchains are fast and scalable and use encryption to provide effective data management needs to organizations that need them.

Therefore, blockchain data is more secure, verifiable, and trustless. It also reduces management costs by introducing more automation to collection and storage. These advantages bode well for the Internet of Things era, which needs scalable, reliable, and efficient solutions. 

Kalima Blockchain: A leader in Blockchain for enterprise & IoT

The internet of things needs workable blockchain solutions for greater functionality and transparency. Kalima blockchain is a next-generation blockchain that provides the infrastructure for companies to manage their data robustly. 

Organizations can use the secure channels built on blockchain immutability to collect and secure user data. Kalima deploys a series of permissioned chains (PrivaChains) that integrate seamlessly with other blockchains and external systems. Businesses can efficiently collect, manage and even monetize such data. The platform has a native token called KLX, a multipurpose token that allows network participants to contribute effectively to governance and earn rewards. 

The Kalima Mainchain supports the network of PrivaChains. It operates similarly to Cosmos and Polkadot, emerging leaders in enterprise blockchain scalability.

The Mainchain hosts Kalima’s native token, KLX. This token is crucial in governance and for businesses to effectively monetize their data by using Kalima’s blockchain IoT infrastructure. Users can host decentralized applications on Kalima PrivaChains and implement their independent governance models. 

Kalima developers ensured great utility by allowing easy bridges with other public blockchains like Tezos and Polygon. The result is decentralized applications with broad integration enabling efficient data management. 

Notably, users need a minimum of 50 million KLX to deploy a private chain on Kalima. The holder can stake the tokens and earn staking rewards in the process. 

The result is a safe, fast, and low-cost data management system. An efficient development API ensures that private chains can be versatile and unique to their developers’ needs. This protocol is applicable in sectors like industry supply chain, healthcare data, energy and environmental data tracking, financial services, and much more.

This utility has already drawn significant users such as Enedis, an electricity national leader distribution company in France, ArcelorMittal, a world leader in steel production, and Tenneco in the automotive industry.

A scalable and Sustainable Future

As more companies look for efficient IoT data management, Kalima provides scalable and sustainable data management infrastructure. This space will continue to experience incredible innovation with Kalima blockchain as one of the leading lights.
