This is a page about using Obyte with hardware devices: BIoT, Byteduino etc

BIoT (Byte IoT)


The Internet of things (IoT) is the network of devices such as vehicles, and home appliances that contain electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity which allows these things to connect, interact and exchange data.

The IoT involves extending Internet connectivity beyond standard devices, such as desktops, laptops, smartphones and tablets, to any range of traditionally dumb or non-internet-enabled physical devices and everyday objects. Embedded with technology, these devices can communicate and interact over the Internet, and they can be remotely monitored and controlled.[1]


BIoT has been funded with an Obyte grant. It allows you to manage and monitor the process of payment (using Obyte micropayments in payment channels) and communication between devices by using the BIoT client on your smartphone or, for example, the onboard computer of your electric car.[2]

Example of payment per use

Bosch-BIoT: Self-sustaining 3D Printer

The essence of this project is to create a remote 3D printing service. The user uploads a 3D model, then is shown the approximate time and cost of 3D model printing. The cost of printing is calculated by the time spent and the amount of material.[3]

The video shows payment in Bosch Coins, an asset on the Obyte platform.


Arduino is an open-source hardware and software company, project and user community that designs and manufactures single-board microcontrollers and microcontroller kits for building digital devices and interactive objects that can sense and control both physically and digitally ... Arduino boards are available commercially in preassembled form or as do-it-yourself (DIY) kits.[4]

Byteduino is a light implementation of Obyte for Arduino ESP8266 and ESP32 boards. It requires very little memory, working even on devices with 40 KB of memory.

This library is made to help hobbyists and professionals to implement Obyte platform into microcontrollers and build cool and original projects. Currently, this library can connect to a hub, send payments, post datafeeds, cosign transactions, and exchange messages with Obyte wallets through encrypted chat.

Hardware co-signer

This is an example project. See Steemit article.
