About Organizers:

IoT Block: IoTBlock was founded with a vision to make IoT data exchange open, free, and secure without having to trust the devices and manufacturers themselves. To accomplish this, we are building a decentralized protocol that has three core building blocks: 1) Secure Authentication: Authenticate IoT devices anonymously to prove they are not cloned, counterfeit, or stolen before they can transmit or receive information. 2) Open Auditability: Authenticate IoT devices anonymously to prove they are not cloned, counterfeit, or stolen before they can transmit or receive information. 3) Cross-Chain Communication: Enable IoT devices to securely interact with the full-state of any blockchain or smart contract. IoTBlock will empower business owners, especially lenders in the sharing economy, by enabling the development of affordable and user-friendly solutions to manage shared assets using IoT devices and expedite insurance claims and dispute resolution, and much more.
