VeChain Files Patent Applications for IoT Innovations.
Enterprise-level decentralized blockchain protocol, VeChain, has recently submitted patent applications related to its proposed Internet of Things (IoT) innovations. As confirmed by VeChain’s official Twitter account, the L1 protocol aims to utilize blockchain technology to streamline the interconnectivity of various IoT sector stakeholders.
Challenges in IoT Sector
VeChain has identified that IoT devices and their supporting software often display varying product specifications, identifiers, and communication standards, making it difficult for protocols to synchronize effectively. Although this challenge might not be significant at present, it could become a major pain point requiring an appropriate technological solution.
Blockchain Technology as a Solution
Blockchain technology, and specifically VeChain, could be the answer to these challenges. The current design of IoT-based technology requires high construction costs for centralized servers that can integrate different aspects from multiple producers. VeChain also pointed out that the increasing adoption of IoT technology in its current form can lead to numerous security vulnerabilities that may hinder the system.
Enhancing IoT Security with VeChain
By using Fiat Chrysler’s recall of over a million vehicles with hackable IoT systems as an example, VeChain demonstrates how its secure systems can help prevent such issues. VeChain’s proposed solution for IoT systems involves designing the methods, application servers, IoT devices, and the underlying media for implementing IoT services.
Collaboration and Implementation
The protocol plans to develop these systems in collaboration with three inventors from China: Chen Yanyu, Gu Jianliang, and Zhou Ziheng. According to the patent filing information, the IoT device that will be created will be based on blockchain technology and will incorporate both public and private key implementations.
Technical Features of the IoT Device
VeChain states that the user device will include memory and a processor capable of executing machine instructions, such as performing hash operations on user data and sending authentication requests to the IoT device. By storing data on blockchain technology, these systems can provide increased accessibility and eliminate potential failure points.
Decentralization for Enhanced Security
The decentralized nature and distribution of stored data across multiple nodes will also improve system security, as compromising one data point may not impact other aspects of the system.
Impact on VET Token
At the core of the VeChain ecosystem is the VET token. If the patent application is approved and VeChain gains a foothold in the IoT ecosystem, the demand for the token, which will be needed to access the products, could increase significantly. Currently trading at $0.02292 according to Marketcap data, VET’s price is expected to rise in the future.
