Date of Publication


Blockchain technology provides a decentralized, secure, tamper proof, and auditable way to store data. In the Internet of Everything (IoE), blockchain can provide a vital role in ensuring the security of a large amount of generated by devices. Blockchain can ensure the integrity and accuracy of IoE data without being controlled by a centralized authority. By leveraging smart contracts to execute business rules between devices, blockchain may automate transactions and streamline procedures in IoE. Furthermore, the creation of decentralized identity management for IoE devices may be facilitated by using blockchain technology, providing a safe method of confirming their validity, and prohibiting unwanted access to the network. It is essential to thoroughly grasp blockchain technology before incorporating it into IoE applications. This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of blockchain technology and how it might solve particular problems in the IoE setting. A framework is also suggested for creating blockchain-based IoE application solutions. The IoE ecosystem can gain from improved security and privacy features using blockchain technology, leading to a more dependable and resilient infrastructure.
