IoT, 5G & Blockchain


R3 and Fifth9 have been working on enabling IoT devices to interact with each other and exchange a service, and a payment for that service, with all interactions recorded irrefutably. The Used Case aligns naturally to smart cities enabling IoT devices owned by separate parties to interact but also for companies who need their IoT devices to not only record data but also trigger actions.

Based on our experience in this project and Fifth9’s 10 year + experience in the Telco IoT space, we have written a joint blog on how IoT, Blockchain and 5G can work together to provide real value to businesses and consumers.
