June 12, 2018

RENO, Nev. , June 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Filament, provider of comprehensive blockchain solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) and the enterprise, today announced that its Blocklet™ Universal Serial Bus (USB) device is now available for blockchain pilot and proof of concept projects.

“The USB form factor of our Blocklet Chip allows companies to plug into existing machines or devices through any connected USB port, and immediately begin securely transacting against a blockchain,” said Allison Clift-Jennings, CEO of Filament. “We’ve had significant interest from manufacturers and others that want to use the equipment they already have in blockchain trials but previously had no way to do that.”

The USB-compatible form factor of Filament’s Blocklet Chip™ can be used on any system with a USB port and is designed to interact with multiple blockchains natively, giving businesses a way to attach secure hardware to their existing IoT machines allowing them to transact with each other directly. This capability enables corporations to significantly accelerate blockchain proof of concept, pilot project and production deployments to create new economic value.

Filament’s Blocklet USB device is ideal for blockchain use cases where companies with existing Industrial IoT devices require attestation of source data, chain of custody across supply chains, and provenance records for determining the origin and lifecycle history of goods. Its distributed blockchain capabilities enable devices to independently process and record transactions, ensuring digital trust among existing machines, devices and equipment.
