Blockchain at Sea, synchronizes navigation data in a decentralized network

Creating Tangram, the platform that encodes videos using Blockchain, IES Italia has decided to explore the infinite possibilities of this incredible technology, and it's only at the beginning...
Remember that Blockchain is part of the technologies Distributed Ledger. DLs are based on databases distributed over multiple devices (called nodes); each node has a copy of the entire database, which can only be changed if the majority of the nodes that make up the network are consented. Public Blockchains (such as Ethereum and Bitcoin) are part of these technologies; in such structures the nodes are public, the register is structured as a chain of blocks containing the transactions and the consensus is distributed on all nodes of the network. All nodes can participate in the process of validating the transactions to be included in the register and everyone can verify the transactions entered in the blocks.

IES Italia has studied the possibility of applying Blockchain technology on Seafy, the service that guarantees internet connection in ships. The result is Blockchain at Sea, the project that, with its private Ethereum network, will be part of the Seafy services, with the aim of providing a fast and reliable synchronization between the ships, without the need of a central server on mainland. This represents a real revolution. In fact, the old model in production was based on a central server that required heavy investment and continuous monitoring to ensure data synchronization between ships and the cloud. In the new model, ships are connected thanks to a decentralized network. The global server is an equal node in all ships, useful for monitoring system status, but not necessary for its operation.

Furthermore Blockchain is a secure system. In fact, in order to monetize the Ethereum private network, databases do not need to trace trucks and availability of the warehouse.

Furthermore, Blockchain is a secure system. User carts and warehouse availability are also synchronized in real time on all ships.

Blockchain at Sea service is preparing to transform the connection between the ships, minimizing errors. The result is an improvement of all the services connected to the network and, consequently, an increase in crew and passengers welfare of the ferries.
