IoT enables devices through the Internet to send data to private blockchain networks to create records of shared transactions. Techpay Blockchain enables to share and access IoT data with you but without the need for central control and management. 

Each transaction can be verified to  build trust among all permissioned participants of the network. 

Benefits of IoT and Techpay blockchain

Iot have following benefits:

Build trust:

Each transaction is recorded in  a data block of Techpay Blockchain that is  secure and  immutable  in a data chain that cannot be changed or altered.

Dependence on security:

Select the IoT platform for the manage of data in which data is 

  •  analyzed
  • Customized
  • Shared among permissioned partners and  clients.

Achieve  greater flexibility:

The Techpay Blockchain Platform is built for your multicloud world. 

High efficiencies: 

Techpay Blockchain update processes and creates new business value  by drawing on the data supplied by IoT devices and sensors.

Applications of IoT and Techpay  blockchain:


Moving product is a complex process that involves different parties with different priorities. An IoT-enabled Techpay blockchain can store the  position, arrival times, and status of shipping containers as they move. Immutable blockchain transactions like Techpay  ensure that all parties can trust the data and take action to move products quickly and efficiently.

Component tracking and confirmity: It is critical to maintain safety and compliance through the process of component tracking that goes into aircraft and automobiles.

IoT data stored in techpay blockchain ledgers  that enables all participants parties to see component origin throughout a product’s life. It is an easy ,secure and cost-effective method to share information with regulatory agencies , shippers and manufacturers.

Maintenance operational data:

Corporations use the IoT devices to track the safety of machines and for their maintenance. Techpay blockchain provides for a tamper-free ledger of operational data from engines to elevators for their maintenance. Third-parties  record the work back on the Blockchain, monitor for preventive maintenance. Operational records can also be shared with government entities to verify compliance. 

Techpay blockchain is a  digital ledger technology that enables organizations to record transactions digitally, securely, immutably across several computers that are linked in a peer-to-peer network.

Blockchain technology can  cause a issue  when storing data from IOT devices. It creates a risk that users sensitive data available for third party which they use for wrong purpose

For this, Techpay Blockchain can provide a solution when storing data from IOT devices effectively and efficiently because Techpay Blockchain is immutable it means a third party is not able to change the data.

“any third party requiring access to a user’s data must request it first and such a request and response can be stored in the blockchain,” carvahlo said. “now, users and data requesters have an immutable database that can unequivocally determine who has access to specific data and for long that access is valid. this application has a great potential to enhance privacy and even be the backbone of a data marketplace where users can profit from selling their own data.”

The Benefits of Blockchain and IoT

A blockchain’s distributed ledger is tamper-proof, eliminating the need for the involved parties to trust one another, said Andres Ricaurte, senior vice president and global head of payments at an IT services company. As such, no single party has control over the massive amount of data the IoT devices generate. Blockchain encryption makes it virtually impossible for anyone to overwrite existing data records. And using blockchain to store IoT data adds another layer of security to prevent malicious attackers from gaining access to the network.

A primary challenge for IoT players is to protect the information in the entire IoT ecosystem, said Vipul Parekh, senior director with management consulting firm Alvarez & Marsal. Security vulnerabilities make IoT devices an easy target for distributed-denial-of-service attacks, malicious attackers and data breaches.

The integration of IoT and blockchain opens the door for new possibilities that inherently reduce inefficiencies, enhance security and improve transparency for all involved parties while enabling secured machine-to-machine transactions, Parekh said. The coupling of these technologies allows a physical asset to be tracked from the moment raw materials are mined, for example, and among every step of the supply chain until it is with the end consumer.

Benefits of integrating blockchain and IoT:

Following benefits of integrating Blockchain and IoT are:

Enhanced security: Techpay Blockchain technology provides security with the ability to verify and record transactions originated by a trusted party as well as encryption while data is being transmitted and stored. 

Techpay Blockchain technology provides transparency about 

  • who has access to the data that are stored in the blocks who are transacting and a record of all of the interactions. Moreover  blockchain adds a security layer,
  •  The removal of a single point of failure and
  •  The ability to quickly identify the weak points in the entire network.

Reduced costs:By automating the transaction validation and processing steps on blockchain, the entire ecosystem can be made proactive at a reduced cost.

Speed of transactions: This is especially for supply chain transactions with multiple suppliers, producers, distributors and consumers. With the blockchain serving as a shared ledger to a degree, untrusted parties can exchange data directly with one another, eliminating the manual processes and increasing the speed of transactions.

There are many challenges in IoT deployments, including costs, security, privacy and data exchange. While these are separate issues, there are many dependencies to them, according to Rossman.

“Customers of IoT, oftentimes a collaboration of business partners, need the data and insights from IoT devices quickly, at a performant cost basis, and they must be trustworthy,” he said. “The blockchain can be the backbone ledger helping with all of these.”

Blockchain is encrypted and secure by design with many independent nodes verifying updates to the chain prior to updates to avoid nefarious actions, Rossman said. This is secure by design. The blockchain can be inspected and verified by all parties, helping to improve both access and trust to the data without burdensome and costly bureaucratic layers. This greatly improves access, trust and cost.

Use Cases for Blockchain and IoT

The use cases for blockchain and IoT include the following:

Supply chain/smart contracts IoT and blockchain can be combined for quality assurance in the supply chain, said John Thielens, CTO of Cleo. Perishable goods, such as wine or rare foods, are typically subjected to varying temperatures and light exposures as they pass through transportation and warehousing networks. “By combining IoT and blockchain, the journey of the perishable goods from producer to retailer can be captured,” Thielens said. “Location and temperature data can be collected and incorporated into the blockchain at the case or pallet level, enabling the ability to check the history of the product as it passes through the supply chain and reject accepting the product and moving it forward if the terms of the handling contract have been violated.”

Other than storing data, some blockchain models allow organizations to store and run immutable algorithms in a distributed and decentralized fashion, Carvahlo said. Often called smart contracts, these algorithms enable companies to encode business and domain rules naturally.

Challenges of Integrating Blockchain Technology With IoT

One of the biggest challenges associated with integrating blockchain and IoT revolves around the constraints associated with the limited battery life of some IoT devices, according to Paul Brody, global innovation leader, blockchain technology at EY.

For example, blockchain has such constraints as scalability to handle large amounts of data, regulatory and data privacy issues as well as standardization, which are all prerequisites for enterprise adoption, according to Parekh. IoT technology also needs to prove that the infrastructure is secure, efficient and resilient. It still must overcome these constraints before new business solutions become staples in enterprise technology.
