Proxy-based Pattern
In order to integrate the W3bStream framework with existing Web2-based IoT businesses, the proxy-based integration pattern is employed. This integration approach simplifies the integration process and requires only minimal changes on the backend of a Web2-based IoT system. While such an integration is able to accommodate a wide range of conventional Web2-based IoT businesses and minimize the digital transformation risks, all the IoT data is still collected by third parties and users do not truly own the data.
As previously seen throughout this documentation, the proxy-based integration pattern essentially uses a Web2-based IoT system as a trusted data source. The client application sends data collected from the Web2-based application to the W3bStream node(s) which then interacts with the blockchain and triggers a smart contract for executing token related operations.
