 Blockchain Technology And Integrity Assurance in Internet of Things (IoT)

The IoT involves smart devices, deployed at scale, collecting massive quantities of data every day. And that data must be trustworthy.

And in the future, where control of machines such as driverless cars will dependent on the software and the sensor data they use, a lack of data integrity (due to error or malice) could lead directly to death. And it would also undermine the public’s trust in both the technology and in the companies and organizations behind it.
