Hands-On IoT Solutions with Blockchain

By: Maximiliano Santos, Enio Moura

Overview of this book

Blockchain has been the hot topic of late thanks to cryptocurrencies. To make matters more interesting, the financial market is looking for ways to reduce operational costs and generate new business models, and this is where blockchain solutions come into the picture. In addition to this, with Internet of Things (IoT) trending and Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and other devices flooding the market, you can now create cheap devices even at home. Hands-On IoT Solutions with Blockchain starts with an overview of IoT concepts in the current business scenario. It then helps you develop your own device on the IBM Watson IoT platform and create your fi rst IoT solution using Watson and Intel Edison.Once you are familiar with IoT, you will learn about Blockchain technology and its use cases. You will also work with the Hyperledger framework and develop your own Blockchain network. As you progress through the chapters, you'll work with problem statements and learn how to design your solution architecture so that you can create your own integrated Blockchain and IoT solution. The next set of chapters will explain how to implement end-to-end Blockchain solutions with IoT using the IBM Cloud platform. By the end of this book, you will have mastered the convergence of IoT and Blockchain technology and exploited the best practices and drivers to develop a bulletproof integrated solution.

Blockchain development using Hyperledger Composer

Hyperledger Composer is a project hosted by the Linux Foundation under the Hyperledger brand. The project aims to create a framework and toolset to accelerate the development of blockchain applications using Hyperledger Fabric, and simplify integration with other applications. It is important to bear in mind that any framework intends to simplify an aspect of a solution by abstracting some of its complexity, but that it also restricts control over the abstraction applied.

The Hyperledger Composer toolkit

Hyperledger Composer is not a universal solution to all the complexities presented by Hyperledger Fabric. It takes away some of the flexibility over tasks that could be customized without it. What it does do, however, is supply a toolkit to create chaincode projects, build blockchain application packages (.bna files), and deploy them to Hyperledger Fabric.

The development of a business network using Hyperledger Composer is focused on creating...
