IoT-division of the world's largest mobile operator China Mobile has developed a water purifier, which uses the blockchain technology, CoinDesk reports.

A computer chip and an IoT module are built into the innovative water purifier. The device collects user behavior data that may be of benefit to manufacturers and suppliers. The device writes data to the SWTC public blockchain, developed by Jingtum, a technical partner of China Mobile.

Users can earn PWMC tokens, the number of which depends on the activity of using the device. For accumulated coins, you can purchase replacement filters for water purifiers and other products.

According to the product market director Xiao Yi, such a reward system is unique and effective. There are no such solutions in other devices of the Internet of Things. In addition, the new solution makes the blockchain technology available to the average user who does not spend all his time on crypto trading.

Our goal is to also attract those who are not in the cryptocurrency or blockchain community, who may have heard of this technology but not necessarily understand it. To embrace a more mainstream adoption, we need to turn something that appears professional into something that’s very ordinary.

The mass production of a new water purifier is still a distant perpective. The product can only be bought by participants in the crowdfunding campaign, which is held on the platform from JD.com.

Bluzelle, a crypto project aimed for creating solutions in the field of distributed data transfer, announced the launch of product stage of its Data Delivery Network (DDN) product at the.

Software applications today target global audiences, but data is stored and managed from technology built over ten years ago — before the explosion of smart devices. Consumers demand applications be fast, available and secure. As recent data breaches from the world’s biggest companies show, this demand is not being met.

DDN functions like a content delivery network (CDN), but instead of caching content, it places data on many distributed networks. According to the developers, such a system helps to find servers that are as close to the user as possible, which in turn leads to a multiple increase in data transfer speed in a decentralized network.

According to Bluzelle, DDN currently supports more than 25 data centers and demonstrates a 30-fold increase in reading speed compared to Redis, the recognized leader in this field. In this case, synchronization of the recorded data is performed by all network nodes in less than a second.
