Deploy blockchain

This section has all the resources for you to get up to speed with IPDB in no time.
“IPDB association invites researchers, developers and enterprises to deploy blockchain proofs-of-concept, platforms and applications with a blockchain database on the IPDB network. IPDB supports a wide range of industries and use cases from identity and intellectual property to supply chains, energy, mobility, IoT, and financial ecosystems. With high throughput, low latency, powerful query functionality, decentralised control and governance, immutable data storage and built-in asset support, IPDB acts as a blockchain database,”
