The true inspiration comes from seeing projects such as hyperledger. I believe we are truly making a better version of this.
What it does
Anchors IoT data to Bitcoin. Verify IoT data wasn't tampered with. Focusing on Oil Industry
3 node Kafka cluster in AWS, 3 node zookeeper, Data comes into the cluster and then gets pegged to the Bitcoin blockchain, receipts are available and then proofs after blocks have been written.
How we built it
A lot of different technologies, Tierion to anchor to bitcoin.
Challenges we ran into
Just a LOT of work..
Accomplishments that we're proud of
A working prototype!
What we learned
Tierion API, Blocktrail API, Kafka setup in AWS
What's next for BitFunnel
Let's see how we do! Would love to make this a company
