As part of the W3C web-of-things-framework project which I maintain with
Dave Ragget, I started to create an implementation for decentralized,
peer-to-peer Internet of Things. The aim is to define a protocol and
framework there that perhaps could grow into an IETF standard. I understand
the existence of the RFC 6940 RELOAD, but I aim to create a simpler
decentralized, peer-to-peer framework than RELOAD is. Decentralized
computing, peer-to-peer communication and the blockchain are here to stay.
I believe WoT should incorporate the decentralized approach into its

I invite members who are interested in decentralized, peer-to-peer,
blockchain based IoT to join me and work together to create a protocol and
perhaps an IETF standard. As a starting point, I have defined the basic
structure of the system at

I also created a Raspberry Pi binding which demonstrate the idea of
decentralized IoT. I forked a library from my open source Streembit project
( http://streembit.github.io ) to start with something, so we can progress
by working and evaluating ideas with an actual software. It is under the
example section of web-of-things-framework at
