p Scheme to help kickstart adoption of blockchain by enterprises will provide both practical advice and technical assistance
IBM continues its backing of blockchain technology with the announcement of an ‘accelerator program’ to help businesses seeking to utilise the fledgling technology.
The accelerator program will provide both practical assistance including workshops and mentorships to both developers and businesses seeking to take blockchain networks into production.
It comes after IBM in March launched a cloud-based enterprise-ready Blockchain service to enable firms to build applications on top of the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Fabric code set within the IBM Cloud.
IBM said that its accelerator program is the first of its kind to offer expertise and support for firms seeking to build new blockchain networks.
There are no financial incentives on offer, but rather joining will provide firms with “exclusive access to technology and consulting expertise”.
