Blockchain has fast become the new marketing buzzword for solving all financial and security woes, but what is it really? Demystify the blocks as IBM delves into the hyperledger project, what it means for the industry, and why blockchain is ideal for more than just securities. All while live-deploying chain code using IBM’s blockchain-as-a-service.

Why it’s a must-see:

Blockchain is the next stage in consensus-driven transactions and for most people the concept is about as clear as Seattle weather. This presentation quickly and visually guides attendees through the basic concepts of hyperledger and, for developers, how to quickly deploy blockchain in a cloud environment.

Blue Blue, Blockchain, and the Big Apple: IBM Launches Its Latest Bluemix Garage in NYC

Originally published at Finovate.com

In opening its latest Bluemix Garage in New York City, IBM continues to put its money where the developers, software designers and others are. The New York City location will be IBM’s sixth, with garages currently in operation in San Francisco, Toronto, London, Nice, and Tokyo. IBM is partnering with Galvanize, who will host the New York garage on its new New York campus. Other locations are said to be in the works for the second half of 2016.

Galvanize co-founder and CEO Jim Deters said “Having IBM’s Garage in New York City, within the Galvanize community, allows our strong network of developers and startups to leverage the power of the cloud and the expertise of IBM to competitively innovate products and apps in the growing fintech and blockchain spaces.” Galvanize runs a network for developers, coders, and technology entrepreneurs, and has more than 1,800 members across seven campuses.

IBM’s cloud development platform, Bluemix has more than 140 tools and technologies for developing solutions leveraging big data, mobile, analytics, Watson, IoT, and more. With more than 120,000 applications launched from the platform every month, the open standards based platform  is one of largest public cloud deployments in the world. Within its Bluemix Garages, IBM is especially interested in blockchain related projects such as those pursued by the Mizuho Financial Group, which is working with the IBM Bluemix Garage in Tokyo to develop settlement technology using the blockchain. Prashant Bhuyan, CEO of investment technology firm, Alpha Modus, credited Bluemix for helping his company launch “transformational apps that leverage cognitive analytics with unbelievable time and efficiency.”

Founded in 1911, IBM made its Finovate debut at FinovateSpring 2016, demonstrating its Client Insight for Wealth Management technology. IBM’s cloud technologies have had a presence in New York since 2014, when IBM Cloud was deployed to power Digital.NYC. Digital.NYC is the online hub for New York City’s startup and technology community connecting more than 8,000 startups.
