GSMA Exhibition Express: The ascendancy of aitos.io’s BoAT2021 during MWC Shanghai, powering a trusted value network data base with 5G+Blockchain
Mobile World Congress 2021 -Shanghai commenced on Tuesday, February 23, 2021, as the three-day event officially kicked off at the Shanghai New International Expo Center. MWC has always stood as a shiny beacon to represent the pulse and heartbeat of an innovative and thriving global, regional and domestic Chinese mobile industry environment. MWC-Shanghai is significant as the first in-person conference event to return to normal vendor-to-audience interaction, since the epidemic cancelled all global venue activities in 2020. This year’s theme is "Connected Impact" to bring future-oriented cutting-edge technology trends to global audiences. On the first day of a specially organized Blockchain leaders stage, aitos.io officially announced that it has become a strategic member of the RISC-V Foundation. aitos.io, together with Wanxiang Blockchain, SiFive, StarFive and LeapFive co-sponsored the establishment of the "Blockchain SIG" in the RISC-V Foundation; this was to further promote the integration of blockchain technology in the RISC-V community to advance ecosystem development of trusted data bases. At the press conference, Mr. Leo Lin, CEO of aitos.io, entertained the stage audience with a special topic presentation titled "BoAT enters a trillion-level IoT trusted data market, and comprehensive upgrade of the Internet of Things + Blockchain ecosystem with a synergistic strategy". Leo mentioned that "Joining the RISC-V Foundation is in line with the integration and innovation strategy of aitos.io along a key Internet of Things + Blockchain path. We contributed to the launch of the 'Blockchain SIG' and conducted in-depth cooperation with the RISC-V technology community to further optimize and support the growth of our BoAT blockchain application framework for the RISC-V instruction set and chip architecture. This allows the industry to accelerate the access and application of blockchain services by IoT devices, along with building a trusted IoT data base that is open around the value of data."
At this exhibition, the leaders of each vertical jointly demonstrated the latest development results from their joint "5G + Blockchain" ecosystem innovation. aitos.io was invited to participate in a "5G Smart Camp" promotion by Fibocom, a key leading cellular Internet of Things module manufacturer. aitos.io and Fibocom will join hands to jointly release 5G BoAT trusted data on-chain solution and both explore the integration of BoAT with 5G vertical industry applications, to preemptively build a method of collaborative innovation to power blockchain + Internet of Things usage, and detonate a Trillion-level IoT trusted data market.
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 a 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).
