Implementing blockchain for cognitive IoT applications, Part
1: Integrate device data with smart contracts in IBM Blockchain

Internet of things (IoT) solutions are being successfully adopted in
many different industries, such as healthcare, warehousing, transportation,
and logistics. Current centralized cloud-based IoT solutions may not scale and
meet the security challenges faced by large-scale enterprises. The use of
blockchain as a distributed ledger of transactions and peer-to-peer
communication among participating nodes can solve such problems. This article
provides an overview of blockchain-enabled IoT solutions and demonstrates how
to use the IBM Blockchain platform for an IoT application in a multi-partner
