What Is Elkrem?
The Elkrem project is bringing together the worlds of IoT devices and cryptocurrencies. These two emerging technologies hold the potential to create a future we might not have dreamed of. IoT stands for the Internet of Things. It proposes the idea that everyday objects like fridges, televisions, and cars (to name a few) are connected to the internet and can communicate smartly with each other.
But this is the material layer, the stuff we can get our hands on. Cryptocurrency is a virtual movement with concepts and solutions we need to wrap our heads around. Where the two merge just might be the sweet spot if we intend to take humanity to the next level of evolution.
After experimenting for hours on their own small projects, founders Amr Saleh and Islam Mustafa set out to empower other hobbyists by building easy-to-use electronics solutions. In 2013, they successfully launched their very first Kickstarter campaign by bringing a new innovative solution into the world of custom electronics.
Amr and Islam aptly named their project 1Sheeld. It’s a solution which allows users to connect a smartphone to their Arduino board instead of having to buy several separate boards known as shields. Since most people are prepared to invest in a decent smartphone, this solution leverages the power we already have in our pockets.
(Side note: Arduino is an open-source platform that allows users to easily connect hardware and software together for various real-world applications. Open access to both the hardware and software is core to its philosophy and has made it an incredibly popular choice for enthusiasts all around the world.) continue reading here
