Intern for Blockchain Innovation Lab

Internship Reference: TPIT14

Company Introduction:

This Blockchain Lab is a startup based on #IOTA Tangle.

IOTA Tangle does not consist of transactions grouped into blocks and stored in sequential chains, but as a stream of individual transactions entangled together.
In order to participate in this network, a participant simply needs to perform a small amount of computational work that verifies two previous transactions. Rather than creating a hierarchy of roles and responsibilities in the network, every actor has the same incentives and rewards. In order to make a transaction in the Tangle, two previous transactions must be validated with the reward for doing so being the validation of your own transaction by some subsequent transaction. With this ‘pay-it-forward’ system of validations, there is no need to offer financial rewards. Transacting with IOTA is and will always be completely fee-free.

This Blockchain Innovation Lab is focused on the Blockchain and Distributed Ledger technologies. Their services include:
– PaaS based on IOTA.
– Notary certification based on TangleID.
– IoT Backbone network to help customers offload onto the cloud.

9-12 months
