In this Intel Chip Chat audio podcast with Allyson Klein: In this episode of Chip Chat, Chris Spanton, Senior Architect of Blockchain at T-Mobile joins us live from Microsoft Ignite, to talk about scaling into the cloud with Blockchain. Blockchain provides a lot of benefits like speed, cost, efficiency, and transparency. It also allows companies like T-Mobile to audit and perform governance and review on data. Chris talks about T-Mobile’s new blockchain solution called NEXT Directory, which is built on Hyperledger Sawtooth and features Intel Software Guard Extensions (Intel SGX). Chris talks about the value that OpenSource and Hyperledger play in blockchain. For example, Sawtooth’s Proof of Elapsed Time (PoET) consensus algorithm interfaces with Intel SGX and moves the actual consensus process into the hardware, which speeds up node process and increases security.
