W3bstream - smart devices to smart contracts

The W3bstream Devnet Seed release will give a first glimpse of what working with w3bstream is like and it paves the way for devs to bootstrap the new decentralized Machine Economy.

What is W3bstream?

W3bstream is a general framework to connect the physical world to Web3 with an innovative combination of blockchain and IoT.

w3bstream-flow

In a nutshell, w3bstream uses the IoTeX blockchain to manage device ownership and orchestrate decentralized networks of w3bstream nodes to establish two-way communications between smart devices in the physical world and decentralized applications.

With w3bstream in place:

  • Device owners can monetize on their smart devices data by participating in certain dApps,
  • While dApp developers are able to manage sets of smart devices completing specific tasks.

Get Started with W3bstream

There are a couple of ways of quickly getting started experimenting with w3bstream.

  • The official w3bstream documentation offers a lot of great resources for any developer that would like to get going quickly and also learn about this technology in more depth. After a quick overview, the developer is taken through a "get started" and an "applet development" section.
  • The IoTeX Developer Portal is another great way of quickly learning how to build MachineFi applications with w3bstream. To get developers started, we have prepared a simple ClickToEarn application that rewards users with crypto assets clicking their board.

The W3bstream Whitepaper

Haven't had enough content and would like to dig even deeper into the w3bstream vision? Then reading the W3bstream Whitepaper is definitely the best thing to do to momentarily replace your favorite Netflix show. The Whitepaper delves into interesting concepts such as Trust Models, Machine Identity, Web3-Devices, the Architecture of a W3bstream Node, and Communication Patterns, just to name a few.

Make Your Github Profile Stand Out

Github is great, but have you considered how to make yours more attractive for potential employers or other visitors? Even non-tech ones like recruiters!

Take a couple of hours and show your best side as a person - and a programmer.
