W3bStream Network
This section is Work in Progress.

W3bStream is a general framework for connecting the physical world to the metaverse with the innovative combination of blockchain and IoT. In a nutshell, W3bStream uses the IoTeX blockchain to orchestrate a decentralized gateway network (i.e., W3bStream nodes) that enables two-way communications between IoT devices in the physical world and the decentralized applications (Dapps) in the metaverse.

Use cases

W3bStream allows the easy creation of DAOs of groups of devices or machines for a specific application. For example blockchain oracles can be easily deployed: a group of things that work together to commit verifiable telemetry or intelligence they produced to the blockchain metaverse.
Below is a short list of possible oracles that can be built:
  • Proof-of-presence
  • Proof-of-interaction
  • Geofencing
  • Weather/traffic/carbon derivatives
  • Trade of droid/satellite images
  • Decentralized machine learning
Mechanical Turks are a group of things that pool their utilities together for a common goal. These can also be bootstrapped thanks to W3bStream.
Typical examples include:
  • Raspberry Pis that work together to stress-test a website.
  • A fleet of autonomous vehicles that run an Uber-like business.
  • Solar panels trade energy in a P2P fashion.
