Filament announces its Blocklet USB Device for existing IoT devices

Filament, a provider of comprehensive blockchain solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) and the enterprise, today introduced its latest Blocklet hardware device in a Universal Serial Bus (USB) form factor, designed specifically to enable existing industrial and enterprise machines to securely execute transactions on a blockchain.

Because the new device can be used on any system with a USB port, it enables the world’s largest companies and established businesses of all sizes to significantly accelerate blockchain proof of concept, pilot project, and production deployments.
