Story of IoT

The emergence of Internet of Things (IoT) has unveiled a new realm for the technology with the desire to inspect, connect and interact with various devices.

Coined by Kevin Ashton, a British technology pioneer in 1999, it served as the foundation to describe systems where everyday objects could be uniquely identified, represented, and connected with the internet, enabling efficient streams of communication between ‘things’ and systems.

In the preliminary phase of the information age a paradigm shift was occurring in the Web 1.0 environment, when Ashton had presented the idea to executives at razor company Gillette , who were interested in partnering with Procter & Gamble as a solution to solve supply chain issues utilizing Radio Frequency Identification Tags (RFID), to help understand where items are scanned, placed, or sold. The phrase was met with… crickets, but Ashton remained well adept to keep sharing the ideas of uniting the internet with tangible objects for efficiency.

The phrase only became ubiquitous in 2008–2009 onwards, when the advancements of wireless communications, miniaturization of sensors, and the proliferation of internet connectivity paved the way for the concept of IoT.

Benefits of IoT

As IoT technology continued to evolve, its impact became increasingly significant. It revolutionized industries such as healthcare, agriculture, transportation, and logistics.

❤️‍🩹 Healthcare

In healthcare, IoT devices enabled remote patient monitoring, improved diagnostics, and enhanced the overall quality of care.

🧑‍🌾 Agriculture

In agriculture, IoT sensors helped irrigation, monitor crop health, and increase yields.

🛤️ Transportation and Logistics

Transportation and logistics benefited from IoT-enabled tracking and monitoring systems, leading to improved efficiency and reduced costs.

Kenshi of Today

In the rapidly evolving world of blockchain technology, Kenshi continues to assert its leadership as an avant-garde innovator. This foundation can now be completed with the new generation of Web 3.0 data consumption to simplify, manage, query, analyze, and automate the chasm between the web and the decentralized economy.

Reimagining the realms of opportunities for conceptualizing, deploying, and utilizing the suite of tools that capture a plethora of data from EVM-based blockchain networks. Developers can utilize the data infrastructure to support their blockchain ecosystems no matter if they are small or large in a cost-efficient manner.

The data infrastructure for Deep Index Sync, Deep Index GraphQL & MQL, and Deep Index R-API offer a more conventional experience to the current Web 2.0 landscape within minutes of creating an account.

As we had mentioned in our previous article, the data infrastructure landscape has evolved tremendously, the accessibility of on-chain data has been remarkable, yet costs continue to go higher and technical barriers exist which hinder data scientists, researchers, and engineers to illuminate their own actionable insights. Kenshi’s pricing model has always remained transparent, predictable, and scalable. Helping you to unlock revolutionary ways to access and utilize blockchain technology more effortlessly than ever!

Kenshi of Tomorrow

The integration of IoT with Kenshi’s data infrastructure allows boundless possibilities, customized to your preference and unique requirements to build applications that have a tangible use case impacting the real-world.

To reach critical mass, development of a toolkit is underway for building more interconnected systems with blockchain technologies. Kenshi would like to more broadly expand into being the IoT hub for developers to forge real-world applications and harness the affordable data stack Kenshi is building.

Supercharging data accessibility, integrations, and elevating in the realms to amplify blockchain data requests efficiently.
