Abstract

Two of the most interesting fields of research today is Blockchain and the Internet of Things (IoT). The workings and promises of both technologies have led to research into a joint application in the near future. A true joint application of these
technologies would involve the IoT having an external connection and not being limited to a local network or Blockchain. Making IoT devices participate in the Blockchain while making their data available across other Blockchain platforms is a challenge still being explored. We intend to approach this problem using sidechains, creating an inter-Blockchain network.
