Hyperledger Sawtooth, an enterprise blockchain platform designed for building distributed ledger applications and networks, has recently released V1.2. The new release brings forth support for iOS and Android development. Similar to countless other blockchain initiatives, the Sawtooth project continues to grow and show major potential for use cases today across several industries.
This new release creates a stepping stone for those interested in bringing blockchain to mobile platforms. According to CNBC, by 2025 three quarters (roughly 72.6%) of people who access the internet will do so through a mobile device. The updated version of Sawtooth allows developers to cater to those who prefer to use their phones by making this emerging technology more accessible and transportable. What does this mean for Blockchain as a whole? In simple terms, faster adoption for those who are still on the fence about blockchain. Since the new release provides a Swift SDK (software development kit) for iOS and a Java SDK for Android, blockchain industries across the board will begin to see a shift in how blockchain is implemented and accessed.
Now that blockchain is accessible from your pocket, it has never been easier to deploy a network and have BlocWatch’s agent monitor blockchain activity. Sawtooth’s update inherently brings simplicity to a previously very complicated technology. As developments grow, it will become easier to gather information from your platforms such as admin credentials, consensus algorithms, system infrastructure, and much more. As a result, you are able to control the permissions our agent receives with the tap of a finger.
