When Your Sensor Earns Money. Exchanging Data for Cash with Bitcoin

Bitcoin is an emerging technology which allows two entities to exchange value over the Internet without trust. Embracing that those entities could well be machines we present a system that allows a sensor to offer its measurement data directly to a world-wide data market. Based on the concept introduced in Noyen et al., we describe a prototypical implementation of the process of exchanging data for electronic cash between a sensor and a requester by leveraging the Bitcoin network and discuss its current limitations.

The Bitcoin Ecosystem: Disruption Beyond Financial Services ?

The Bitcoin ecosystem has grown tremendously in recent years. While the main sectors of growth and venture capital funding have been infrastructure for the Bitcoin ecosystem itself as well as financial services, there is also a more recent evolution in sectors beyond financial services. We classify the venture-capital backed start up ecosystem accordingly and present its evolution over time. Thereby, we identify interesting sectors, i.e. digital assets, marketplaces, and notary services. Each sector is further subdivided, and six representative venture-backed start-up companies are presented in com- prehensive case studies. We extract the core innovations and Bitcoin features on which these are based. Finally, we critically discuss their disruptive potential.
