Rufftup.io and Milligan Partner to Build a Blockchain Powered Tolling.Network Using Hyperledger

Rufftup-io-and-Milligan-Partners-Agree-to-Build-a-Blockchain-Powered-Tolling-Network

On the 18th of January 2019, PR Newswire issued a press release, stating that a popular US Tolling company known as Milligan Partners has partnered with Rufftup.io; a distributed ledger technology company, in unveiling Tolling.Network.

According to the release, the newly unveiled tolling company is supported by Hyperledger Fabric and is designed to improve toll operations among both parties.

The press release further stated that due to a conscious effort towards ensuring efficiency, interagency operations both within the national circle and across the country to the tolling industry, resulted in both firms combining resources to create Tolling.Network, which offers a unique blockchain based solution.

According to the team, Tolling.Network offers an incredible solution that utilizes Blockchain technology in solving the challenges of national interoperability that has affected the tolling ecosystem of the United States for almost 10 years.

They went to state that the technology makes use of smart contracts as well as Distributed Ledger Technology to make it easy for tolling agencies to directly and flawlessly communicate with each partner in the team. This feat has indeed defied what the present model could not achieve.

Every transaction that is carried out on the Tolling.Network, are protected by both the encryption system and the advanced highly functional private channels.

This delectable team involved in the Tolling.Network project asserts that agencies that are utilizing the platform have the choice to tailor or modify their business policies for every company they do business with, without necessarily abiding by the rules of a particular syndicate.

In his response to this development, Matt Milligan, co-founder of Rufftup.io and Managing Partner at Milligan Partners stated that:

“For close to ten years, the toll industry in the United States has been trying it’s best in bringing solutions to the challenges that have bedevilled national interoperability, and there is no doubt that the solution lies in Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT). We are also certain that an open-source scheme is a good idea towards solving this problem.’’

He also pointed out that Tolling.Network will also serve as an affordable and groundbreaking solution to most government bodies.

This development is coming in the wake of bitcoin’s and the entire cryptocurrency industry’s lackluster performance in 2018. Technologies like Tolling.Network highlight the impact and possible use case that blockchain technology can have in many industries. This, in fact, is a strong indication that these newly developed technologies would have a lot of benefits in store.

An example of this is the BTC Manager’s announcement that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) was really looking at incorporating Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) into its operations. Also on the 21st January 2019, a news report said that Venezuela, a country with its own national cryptocurrency will be launching its own blockchain backed ATM card.

The possibilities of blockchain tech are quite limitless and can serve to further improve lives, solve previously impossible challenges and help industries attain new heights.

Hyperledger: At the frontline of the blockchain revolution

Now that the “blockchain everything” hype has passed, it’s down to organisations like Hyperledger to unify enterprise IT and delimit what actually belongs within blockchain’s borders. Marta Piekarska, Hyperledger’s director of ecosystem, traces the development of blockchain technology and the progress made so far

About 10 years ago, Satoshi Nakamoto proved that Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT), could be used in the space of cryptocurrencies if combined with a strong consensus mechanism and public availability.

However, as time passed, more and more enterprises– from supply chain to humanitarian aid– have expressed interest in applying this concept to their fields. In these instances, it became clear having an entirely open system wasn’t entirely necessary.

If we consider solutions in healthcare, for instance, only a doctor should be allowed to enter new data on patients health, and only that person and their doctors should be permitted to view said information. However, it is still beneficial to have a system that is not relying on a trusted third party, is immutable and that provides a unified view to all participants.

This is why various new “levels” have been developed under the blockchain umbrella. The two main differentiators come from the permissioning model and the visibility of data.

We have permissionless: public solutions where anyone can join the network, submit information and view what is happening on it. Then, we have the middle ground: permissioned public systems where only certain parties can submit information, but where anyone can view it.

Linux Foundation launches Hyperledger Grid to provide framework for supply chain projects

The Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Project has a singular focus on the blockchain, but this morning it announced a framework for building supply chain projects where it didn’t want blockchain stealing the show.

In fact, the foundation is careful to point out that this project is not specifically about the blockchain, so much as providing the building blocks for a broader view of solving supply chain digitization issues. As it describes in a blog post announcing the project, it is neither an application nor a blockchain project, per se. So what is it?

“Grid is an ecosystem of technologies, frameworks and libraries that work together, letting application developers make the choice as to which components are most appropriate for their industry or market model.”

Hyperledger doesn’t want to get locked down by jargon or preconceived notions of what these projects should look like. It wants to provide developers with a set of tools and libraries and let them loose to come up with ideas and build applications specific to their industry requirements.

Primary contributors to the project to this point have been Cargill, Intel and Bitwise IO.

Supply chain has been a major early use case for distributed ledger applications in the enterprise. In fact, earlier today we covered an announcement from Citizens Reserve, a startup building a Supply Chain as a Service on the blockchain. IBM has been working on several supply chain uses cases, including diamond tracking and food supply protection.

But the distributed ledger idea is so new both for supply chain and the enterprise in general that developers are still very much finding their way. By providing a flexible, open-source framework, The Linux Foundation is giving developers an open option and trying to provide a flexible foundation to build applications as this all shakes out.

Hyperledger unveils supply chain blockchain project Grid

Today Hyperledger, part of the Linux Foundation announced its latest enterprise blockchain project, Hyperledger Grid. The initiative is a framework that provides a set of tools particularly suited to supply chain blockchains. The main sponsors are agribusiness company Cargill and two of the maintainers of the Hyperledger Sawtooth blockchain protocol, Intel and Bitwise IO. This is the first project focused on a particular industry.

Many people associate Hyperledger with Hyperledger Fabric. But in fact, there are three Hyperledger blockchain protocols – Fabric, Sawtooth and Iroha – and eight other blockchain related projects covering identity, interoperability, smart contracts and other topics.

Grid’s traceability code uses the Sawtooth blockchain and is based on the Sawtooth supply chain code, but the team ultimately wants broad compatibility. James Mitchell, a Principal Consultant at Bitwise, commented on a Grid chat forum: “In the spirit of other top-level projects like Explorer and Composer, we welcome contributions to support compatibility with the entire Hyperledger greenhouse.”

The project is not an application. Instead, the tools consist of libraries, data models and a software development kit for developing supply chain smart contracts and client interfaces. It uses the javascript-based WebAssembly smart contract engine Sabre.

One of the first steps on the roadmap is product models such as the GS1/GTIN standards.

Dan Middleton from Intel introduced the project at December’s Hyperledger Global Forum.

Moving up the food chain

Traditionally open-source projects cover fairly deep technologies such as operating systems, network protocols, web servers and databases. The layer above that is middleware and the top end usually covers applications and user interfaces. Grid is industry focused middleware.

At a TechCrunch conference last year Brian Behlendorf, Hyperledger’s Executive Director described his organic vision of how the ecosystem might evolve: “[Ethereum’s] Solidity is not the last smart contract language. We’ll start to see apps built on top of those. We’ll see a library to do trade finance, a library to do health care records.”

“A library to do the kind of things that are uniquely enabled by this different approach now to blockchain technology; coming in as projects. And our goal is [to] provide the substrate for it, provide the augur that they can come in and grow within.”

“And either they succeed in the market, or if they don’t, then we’ve created a lot of interesting biological material for the next project. There are no failures, there are only projects that go so far, and then become mulch for the next one.”

Software mimics business as a whole. Some offerings in the early stages are innovative and competitive differentiators. As everyone catches up, those same features are later viewed as generic or commoditized.

“If you’re building a proprietary app on top of an open-source series of layers, you’re always watching what that horizon is,” Brian Behlendorf told Ledger Insights last year. “Because you don’t want to wake up one morning and discover somebody has open sourced something that now you have to be competing against. Competing against free is bad. Competing against free and collaborated upon by all of your competitors is even worse.”

Cargill

Talking of food chains, Cargill is one of the world’s largest agribusiness companies, and the largest privately owned company by revenue in the U.S. In the year to 31 May 2018 it reported $114.7 billion in revenues and $3.2 billion in earnings. And it already has quite a bit of activity in the blockchain sphere.

It’s part of a new agribusiness consortium that aims to digitize agribusiness trade using blockchain and AI. The group is nicknamed ABCCD based on their names: Archer Daniels Midland, Bunge, Cargill, COFCO and Dreyfus (Louis Dreyfus Group). The companies have combined revenues of $274 billion.

Early last year Cargill participated in a Letter of Credit pilot for the Voltron trade finance project. It involved a shipment of soya beans from Argentina to Malaysia and HSBC and ING were the banks involved.

Tolling.Network’s open source blockchain for toll interoperability

Toll boothsMilligan Partners and Ruuftop.io have launched Tolling.Network, a distributed ledger solution which uses the Hyperledger Fabric for toll interoperability. Milligan Partners and Ruuftop.io believe Tolling.Network is a next-generation network for both agency-to-agency national interoperability and cross-border interoperability.

When we started the Tolling.Network project, we were drawn to Hyperledger because it doesn’t rely on cryptocurrency. We understand how much toll agencies need security and stability, and that’s what we designed Tolling.Network to provide,” said Tyler Milligan, Managing Partner of Milligan Partners and Co-Founder of Ruuftop.io. “We believe the solution is blockchain technology.We also believe that an open source project is the right way to go. Government agencies need a cost-effective and innovative option, and that hasn’t existed… until now.”

Tolling.Network

In the Tolling.Network architecture, a distributed ledger is a specific type of ledger: practitioners describe a blockchain ledger distributed because an identical copy of the ledger is stored on every peer on the network. In this context. a blockchain ledger comprises two parts:

  • a ‘world state’, a database containing the current values of the ledger
  • a blockchain, the historical journal which holds the record of everything that has ever happened in the system.

The combination of these is what makes Tolling.Network so efficient compared to other blockchains.

Tolling.Network is a permissioned, blockchain network which:

  • enables agencies to communicate with each other
  • eliminates the need for the more common, and current, hub-based interoperability model.
  • is secure.

Tolling.Network exploits the Hyperledger Fabric’s private, secure channels and encryption. These protect transactions and customer data. This approach also possesses smart characteristics. Tolling.Network uses smart contracts to create digital interoperability rules.

A smart contract (also called chaincode) is the encoding of sets of rules stored on the blockchain. These rules govern how toll agencies operate. When known, these rules mean toll agencies can tailor their business approach for each organisation with which they interact: there is no need to conform to one consortium’s set of rules.

The road toll problem and what it needs from blockchain

For at least the last ten years, the US toll industry has tried to solve the problem of interoperability on a national basis. Tolling.Network allows toll agencies to share status updates for:

  • transponders
  • license plates
  • other vehicle identifiers.

It also lets toll agencies:

  • send and receive interoperable transactions
  • handle reconciliation and disputes.

Data encrypts and stores in distributed ledgers. This enables everyone always to possess access to a current copy of the transponder status list. Put another way, this means that the list ‘you’ are looking at is the same list ‘I’ am looking at . Better still, this eliminates the need to send giant data-heavy lists back and forth each day.

In addition the use of distributed ledgers makes it easier for agencies to:

  • send and receive transactions
  • report on what each owes another agency.

Enterprise Times: what does this mean

Shared, verifiable accounting is one of the attractions of blockchain. A blockchain provides the ironclad, immutable, transparent histories of the information written to it. This means that ‘transaction’s’ cannot disappear, that the past can be re-assembled.

Road tolling systems, particularly in the US, tend to exist more in isolation than with interoperation. In the Tolling.Network vision, blockchain becomes the common or shared point for interoperability. Thus blockchain becomes an enabling infrastructure component which does not demand, if Enterprise Times understands this, existing systems must be rewritten.

Tolling Interoperability Solution To Be Achieved With Hyperledger Fabric

Jan 22, 2019 00:30&nbspUTC

| Updated:

Jan 22, 2019 at 12:44&nbspUTC

By&nbspRushali Shome

A recent press release tells us that major US tolling firm, the Milligan Partners, has tied up with DLT (distributed ledger technology) company Ruuftop.io to launch a smart tolling solution based in the Hyperledger Fabric. This solution, to be known as the Tolling. Network is meant to increase and improve toll interoperability.

You May Also Read: How Does Hyperledger Fabric Work?

The usage of blockchain technology across a diverse number of use cases is hardly anything new. Yet, this innovative application does seem to be promising in terms of where DLT and blockchain can go in the future.

This partnership, in particular, is aimed at boosting efficiency and allowing for a higher level of transparency and easy interoperability between various agencies that are involved. The solution is also expected to help with cross-border interoperability within the tolling industry as well.

Matt Milligan, who serves as the Managing Partner of Milligan Partners and has also helped co-found Ruuftop.io, had a great deal of enthusiasm about the novel change their new DLT-based solution is seeking to bring. He commented:

“For at least the last ten years, the US toll industry has been trying to solve the problem of National Interoperability, and we believe the solution is blockchain technology. We also believe that an open source project is the right way to go. Government agencies need a cost-effective and innovative option, and that hasn’t existed… until now.”

The US tolling industry has seen several bottlenecks in interoperability over the course of its long history and it remains to be seen if this partnership truly brings the revolution it promises to usher in. Echoing his co-managing partner, Tyler Milligan commented:

“When we started the Tolling.Network project, we were drawn to Hyperledger because it doesn’t rely on cryptocurrency. We understand how much toll agencies need security and stability, and that’s what we designed Tolling.Network to provide.”

All tolling solutions currently in use have a hub-based model, and this solution,using blockchain smart contracts and distributed ledger technology to ensure ease, flexibility and interoperability, is quite unique. As its official website tells us:

“Tolling.Network is a blockchain system built on Hyperledger that allows you to be fully interoperable without going through a central hub. It provides a trusted source of shared information, and ensures incredibly efficient peer-to-peer interactions.”

Securitize To Join IBM’s Blockchain Accelerator To Modernize $82T Corporate Debt Market

Carlos Domingo, Co-Founder & CEO of SecuritizeCarlos Domingo

Securitize, a compliance platform and protocol for digitizing securities on the blockchain, has revealed that it’s one of 10 companies to join the IBM Blockchain Accelerator program.

Speaking of the announcement, Carlos Domingo, co-founder and CEO of Securitize, said that their “goal is to build the world’s first debt issuance platform with blockchain technology in 2019.”

With the aid of IBM, we hope to modernize the $82 trillion dollar corporate debt market – which is currently riddled with inefficiencies and high fees – with blockchain technology, he added.

The program is to last three months and will include a Blockchain Architecture workshop, in addition to the opportunity to work with the IBM team and external mentors, Domingo explained. At the end of the program, Securitize will present a demonstration of their platform, explaining what they want to build for potential customers, including internal IBM teams.

Domingo noted that they are planning to integrate Hyperledger into the product design of their platform, which will enable debt issuance on the blockchain.

Hyperledger is an open source collaborative effort hosted by The Linux Foundation that has been created to advance cross-industry blockchain technologies. Some of its members include Airbus, American Express, Cisco, Citi, Deloitte, Deutsche Bank, Huawei, IBM, JPMorgan, PwC, Ripple and Tencent to name a few.

With the use of Securitize’s Digital Securities (DS) protocol, it’s aiming to provide automated compliance to a private share that can then be traded. With the aid of the blockchain, the platform is hoping to deliver a modern solution for the finance industry. At present, ensuring compliance for a private share can often take weeks or months, Domingo stated.

The primary issues with issuing corporate debt are the high-costs, inefficient processes and the multiple actors that participate in the deal execution part, said Domingo. Integrating blockchain technology into the whole corporate debt process will help enable greater transparency, audibility, efficiency, and eliminate intermediaries that don’t need to be there.

Additionally, the DS protocol delivers instant settlement when an investor purchases a fraction of the security, he added. Currently, traditional private shares are paper-based while the settlement and custody of those shares can take time.

According to the Securitize website, the DS protocol has the “highest adoption rate in the market today and provides a seamless compliant integration solution for issuers, investors and exchanges throughout the entire digital security lifecycle, from initial issuance to trading, distribution, and governance.”

A few of the digital security issuers it’s powering include Blockchain Capital, 22x, SPiCE VC, Augmate, Aspencoin, Lottery and Science Blockchain.

“As the leader in enterprise blockchain, IBM is proud to welcome Securitize and nine others to the inaugural IBM Blockchain Accelerator program,” said David Post, managing director at IBM Blockchain Ventures. “The participants have been chosen for their promising use cases and dedication to building scalable blockchain networks that have the power to transform existing business processes.”

The other nine blockchain companies include Lucidity, a marketing analytics company for digital advertising; TigerTrade, an international B2B marketplace for trading excess retail inventory with a focus on emerging markets; Phunware, a fully integrated enterprise software platform for mobile; Connecting Food, which is providing digital solutions to create transparency in the food supply chain from farm to fork; Ferrum, an equipment lease financing company; Bandwagon, a ticket authenticity and fan identity management company; IPwe, a platform where the patent ecosystem can come together to transact, interact and communicate; MetaMe, a universal wallet and smart data marketplace; and Credly, which is empowering organizations to recognize individuals for demonstrated competencies and skills.

Safety, Performance and Innovation: Rust in Hyperledger Sawtooth

Hello, fellow Rustaceans and those curious about Rust. The Hyperledger Sawtooth team is using Rust for new development, so these are exciting times for both Rust and Hyperledger Sawtooth. Rust is a new language that is quickly growing in popularity. The Hyperledger Sawtooth community is using Rust to build components to give application developers and administrators more control, more flexibility, and greater security for their blockchain networks. This blog post will give an overview of some of the new components being built in Rust.

Hyperledger Sawtooth was originally written in Python, which was a good choice for initial research and design. In 2018, the Sawtooth team chose the Rust language for new development. A key benefit is that Rust supports concurrency while also emphasizing memory safety. Several new core components, transaction processors, and consensus engines have already been written in Rust.

Compared to Python, Rust’s most noticeable feature is the expressive type system, along with its compile-time checks. Rust has ownership and borrowing rules to guarantee at compile time that an object has either only one mutable reference of an object or an unlimited number of immutable references. This feature of Rust forces the developer to account for all possible error and edgecases, making our interfaces more robust as we design them.

The validator’s block validation and publishing components are a good example of our recent interface changes. Before release 1.1, these components were heavily tied to PoET, the original consensus in Hyperledger Sawtooth. In addition, they were largely synchronous, where committing a block started the process of building a new block to publish. As we implemented the consensus engine interface, we took the opportunity to rewrite these components in Rust, which helped us to separate them more cleanly. Now there are three separate asynchronous tasks—block validation, block commit, and block publishing—that share a small amount of information. For example, the block publishing component is informed when batches are committed so that it can take them out of a pending queue, but none of the tasks starts either of the other tasks. For more information, see the block validation and block publishing components in the sawtooth-core repository.

This clean separation of tasks allows the new consensus interface to function correctly and makes it easier to develop new consensus engines. The Sawtooth team has already written two new engines in Rust: Sawtooth PBFT and Sawtooth Raft (which uses the PingCap raft library, raft-rs). The Sawtooth team is proud of the work we have done on these consensus engines, and the flexibility it provides Sawtooth community members who are building a blockchain application.

Rust also excels in its support for compiling to WASM, which can be used as a smart contract. Hyperledger Sawtooth already had Seth, which supports running Ethereum Solidity smart contracts using a transaction processor, but now has Sawtooth Sabre, a transaction processor that runs a WASM smart contract that is compiled from Rust to the WASM target. Sawtooth Sabre includes an innovative feature: using registries for namespaces and contracts. The namespace registry lets administrators control what information a contract can access. The contract registry lists versions of the contract, along with a SHA-512 hash of the contract, giving application developers confidence that the correct contract is registered. Sabre supports API compatibility with the Sawtooth Rust SDK, so developers can write a smart contract that can run either within Sabre or natively as a transaction processor, depending on the deployment methodology.

Rust has also influenced how changes to Hyperledger Sawtooth are handled. Our new RFC process is modeled after Rust’s RFC process, which provides a community-oriented forum for proposing and designing large changes. The Hyperledger Sawtooth team has put effort into a community-oriented design process at sawtooth-rfcs. The consensus API RFC is a good example: The guide-level explanation clearly lays out the purpose and reasoning behind the new component, then has a reference-level explanation of the technical details needed to guide implementation. The Sawtooth RFC process has been a good way to involve the larger Sawtooth community in driving the design and implementation of Sawtooth.

What’s next for Rust in Sawtooth? In 2019, the Sawtooth team is rewriting the remaining Sawtooth validator components in Rust. That means the networking and transaction processing components will be getting an overhaul. Expect that the networking components will be redesigned. The transaction processing components will have minor changes internally, while keeping a stable API. In both cases, there will be an increase in performance and stability thanks to Rust.

Come join the Hyperledger Sawtooth community in 2019 by writing your own transaction processor in Rust or even a consensus engine. Get in touch on the #sawtooth channel on RocketChat.
