ABI, the Alliance of Blockchain Industry successfully held their first meeting of the second general assembly in Beijing, China, during February 28, 2022. During the conference, Hyperledger Manufacturing Special Interest Group (SIG) led by ABI was formally established. aitos.io was among the invitees to attend this formal launch ceremony.
Hyperledger is a well-known open source blockchain project under the Linux Foundation. The Hyperledger Special Interest Group was initiated by community members and approved by Management Committee to promote the application of Hyperledger and distributed ledger technology for a host of specific industries. Hyperledger Manufacturing SIG led by CAICT (China Academy of Information and Communications Technology) was established to explore the utilization of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) in industrial sectors. The main objective of Hyperledger Manufacturing SIG is to provide industrial enterprises and technical service providers with important information on best practices, real-time use case applications, and beneficial procedures for implementing standards in this sector.
aitos.io is a technology start-up focusing on the integrated innovation of IoT and Blockchain. By combining its own rich resources in the IoT industry, aitos.io has raised the standard for an open-sourced blockchain application framework BoAT (Blockchain of AI Things) with delivered via IoT chipset and module to enable IoT devices quickly implement trusted data on-chain and access the blockchain services. At the end of 2019, aitos.io and nine mainstream cellular wireless module manufacturers jointly initiated the Blockchain IoT Module alliance, and successively released their own brands of BoAT blockchain module products. This resulted in hundreds of millions of IoT devices equipped with the capability of blockchain services access as a trusted entry of IoT+Blockchain application. aitos.io’s vision is to leverage an alliance of global IoT vendors to empower them to tap the value of applications and data.
At the beginning of the project launch in the end of 2018, aitos.io received angel investment from the IoT industry expert group and strategic investment from Wanxiang Blockchain. In December 2018, aitos.io was awarded membership into ARM Accelerator Camp. In June 2019, aitos.io emerged as the founding member of China Unicom IoT and Wanxiang Blockchain IoT+Blockchain Joint Innovation Center. In November, aitos.io became a empowerment partner of Microsoft’s AI and IoT Lab . In August 2020, aitos.io transitioned into Tencent’s Blockchain Accelerator program as the first member. In February 2021, aitos.io joined RISC-V International as strategic member and initiated to form new Blockchain SIG (special interest group). In April, aitos.io initiated 1st China technical requirements standards for trusted blockchain access of IoT terminals.
