IPDB (Interplanetary Database)
Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) recently became a new CARETAKER for IPDB Foundation (Interplanetary Database ). IPDB is a German public, non-profit organization focusing on research of governance models in the realization of blockchain technology. As a public scalable blockchain database and a foundation, IPDB relies on caretakers for research on both governance and technology. The caretakers run the nodes that store and validate transactions sent to the network.
“We’re excited to be active part of the IPDB network. Acting as an Italian caretaker node for the IPDB, we aim at exploring and experimenting the power of decentralization of blockchain technologies in the Internet of Things domain” says Fabio Antonelli, Head of Unit of OpenIoT, FBK CREATE-NET Research Center.
