Raullen Chai: Internet of Trusted Things: Democratizing IoT

….”A trusted IoT, or an Internet of Trusted Things, needs to be built private-by-design and with peer-to-peer, blockchain-based device identity and coordination built-in.

A central authority owning IoT is a horribly dystopian idea, and the current fractured landscape represents a defense mechanism against this future.
