Even the chipmakers' dig blockchain! Intel recently published their proprietary code behind the Sawtooth Lake Platform, Intel's distributed ledger. Fascinating how this old school hardware company has decided to join the blockchain rush, by building this platform for the sake of remittance, insurance claim processing , IoT and more. The Sawtooth Lake Platform will join the Hyperledger blockchain project, together with institutions such as IBM, Thomson Reuters and others.
Intel is proposing the code for Sawtooth Lake, described by the company as a “highly modular platform for building, deploying and running distributed ledgers,” be submitted to the open-source Hyperledger blockchain project, which was established in December. Intel has published the code on GitHub but warns those planning to use it it is still very much in the experimental phase. “This project is intended for experimental usage and we recommend against using it for security sensitive applications,” the company said in a detailed post explaining how the system works.
