One of the newest and fastest growing trends right now is the internet of things (IoT). This has been a game changer for not just businesses, but for the average household as well. Forbes brought this topic to us in their article, “Demystifying The Relationship Between IoT And Blockchain.”

In the broadest sense, the IoT encompasses everything connected to the internet, but it is increasingly being used to define objects that communicate with each other. Of course, IoT is not the only technology that is at a breakthrough moment. Blockchain, the underlying tech behind cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, is also getting a lot of attention.

It is interesting that they are both in the spotlight because integration-wise, these two technologies are in some ways, a perfect pair. This is because one of the main concerns with IoT is its security, and blockchain fills that void by securing the data from IoT sensors.
