A collaborative environment focused on Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) solutions, working with industry leaders to innovate and create a better world.

About bIOTAsphere

bIOTAsphere is a collaborative environment for diverse communities to interact, innovate and inspire.

Collaborate with us at the next level of integrated Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) solutions, based on IOTA and the Tangle.

Leveraging the secure, open, public, and immutable IOTA protocol and its integrated currency will positively impact lives and the infrastructure where we work, rest and play.

We commercialize IOTA applications with the proven value of the Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) – aka the Tangle – to solve some of the world’s largest and most complex problems.

Learn more about incorporating trust in your applications using DLT for secure, immutable data storage, machine-to-machine communications, simplified transactions, and other solutions.

100 Billion Reasons Why

Still wondering why to use the IOTA Distributed Ledger and what makes it so unique?

We have 100 Billion Reasons Why! Seen by over 70,000 global viewers, this is the quintessential IOTA Explainer video.

Watch as bIOTAsphere Founder, Terry Shane explains why blockchain solutions will not provide practical solutions for the Internet of Things.



600 Billion Reasons Why

As if 100 Billion Reasons weren’t already enough, Terry Shane provides 600 Billion Reasons Why IOTA will solve one of the world’s most intractable recycling challenges; the ubiquitous single-use paper beverage cup!

In this live online event, hosted by David Sønstebø, Co-Chairman of the Board of Directors of the IOTA Foundation, Terry explains how the revolutionary KUPkrush solution can change the economic incentives for the entire ecosystem of players in the recycling industry. Terry and David engage in a Q&A discussion after the presentation.

This is a “must watch” video.



KUPKrush Explainer Video

This 7-Minute animated video explains the core concepts of the KUPKrush Project and is the perfect resource to share with friends and colleagues who share an interest in the topic.

Operating at the intersection of sustainable circular economies and Distributed Ledger using Digital Twin technology, this is a tangible way we can change our world for the better by delivering the financial incentives to change our behaviour around recycling while reducing the volume of material that currently ends up in global landfill sites.

The concepts embodied in the KUPKrush project can be extended to many other items such as the plastic water bottles that pollute the land, rivers and oceans.



IOTA Foundation 2021 Defining Moments

2021 was a year unlike any other, not least for the IOTA Foundation.

This end of year event, featuring some of the brightest lights in IOTA and hosted by Terry Shane for the second year running, provides insights in to what transpired during 2021 and provides a look in to the many exciting network upgrades and potential announcements coming in 2022.

“The bIOTAsphere embodies the ethos of the IOTA project to the letter. We look forward to future collaborations!”
