Blockchain Devices to Combat Fine Dust

More than 100 7-Eleven stores will be equipped with weather and pollution monitoring devices this year before another 3,000 stores nationwide are to be fitted with the same type of devices by Observer. The company has explained that the devices will send real-time pollution data to a blockchain-powered network to be joined by companies and other organizations, such as research institutes, working to combat air pollution in the country.

Called Mini-Weather Station (MWS), the device is only 10 cm wide and 13 cm high. Apart from fine dust, it can measure air pressure, temperature, humidity and precipitation.

New Blockchain-based Gaming Platforms

American multinational semiconductor company AMD recently joined the Blockchain Game Alliance (BGA) and partnered with blockchain technology providers Robot Cache and ULTRA to help promote the new blockchain-powered gaming platforms.

AMD plans to provide computing technologies to members of the BGA so they can use the new gaming platforms powered by blockchain. AMD says these platforms will introduce a new way for online games to be created, published, purchased and played.
