— Robert Frederick, Founder and CEO of Sirqul
SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, May 15, 2018 / -- Dragonchain, an enterprise solution blockchain platform has announced its Strategic Alliance Partnership with IoT platform provider Sirqul. By collaborating with Dragonchain, Sirqul enhances its IoT platform capabilities by utilizing Dragonchain’s unique hybrid private/public blockchain, creating a virtual incorruptible digital ledger. Likewise, Dragonchain will add Sirqul’s solutions, location-based IoT hardware, and software application templates to Dragonchain’s marketplace.

With Gartner projecting 20.4 billion IoT devices by 2020, blockchain will be essential in building trust, reducing costs, accelerating data exchanges, and scaling security. Deployments of IoT devices can be complex, but a distributed ledger can easily verify identity, ensure data integrity, and seamlessly transfer data and/or currency.

“We are excited to partner with Sirqul to provide interoperable and future-proof Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities for users of the Dragonchain platform,” said Joe Roets, CEO of Dragonchain. “With Sirqul IoT hardware, software, and services available in our marketplace, a world-class ecosystem is created for certified developers, marketing, and other business vendors.”

Dragonchain's founder and CEO, Joe Roets, has contributed to blockchain and cryptocurrency projects since 2010, including at Overstock™, Coinbase, Symbiont, and the Walt Disney Company where he worked with Eileen Quenin, current VP Strategic Partnerships at Dragonchain, who has prior experience including GE Healthcare, and LexisNexis®. In 2014, Disney's Seattle technology team set out to develop a blockchain protocol with the goal of ensuring greater data privacy than other enterprise-oriented blockchains. In 2016, Disney made the project open source. No longer affiliated with Disney, Roets and Quenin lead Dragonchain in its expansion of what is now known as the Dragonchain blockchain platform into a variety of commercial applications.

“Security breaches remain a top concern among stakeholders responsible for IoT implementations,” said Robert Frederick, founder and CEO of Sirqul. “Together with Dragonchain we are enabling IoT solution providers and blockchain developers to rapidly create and deliver smart, secure applications that are scalable and best of breed."

Robert Frederick, founder and CEO of Sirqul, has been focused on connected communities, devices, people, and businesses for over 23 years. Frederick is an MIT Technology Review Magazine TR 100 award winner, author of 33 patents, and technical co-founder of Amazon Anywhere and Amazon Web Services (AWS).
