Smart agreements, made simple.
blossom brings the power of smart agreements from a tangled
mess of code-lines into a point-and-click interface. Our
marketplace makes it easy for users to create automated
agreements with others and trade without limitations.
How do we do it?
blossom can connect with anything that has an API. In this
modular fashion, we give users the ability to automate regular
exchanges with other users or other softwares through our
agreements. For example: want to let your neighbors charge
electric vehicles at your home? A blossom agreement can give
charging access to specific users and automatically
disseminate payment upon each use.
Bartering is emerging once again as a powerful method of
exchange, and blossom embraces this shift. Anything that is
available for use on our platform can be traded for anything else,
and the terms of engagement are up to each user to decide.
Wish you could pay for your yoga lessons with your solar panels?
blossom makes it possible.
blossom is an industry-agnostic platform, and as such, our goal is
to integrate with as many different forms of trade that we can.
We’re moving to first tackle industries that show the highest
need, and we also offer API licenses to clients looking to integrate
our marketplace into a specific industry on their own.
blossom supports exchanges of any type and scope. Whether
it’s facilitating energy exchanges between neighborhoods on our
virtual microgrid or just connecting two people who want to
make an uncommon trade, we aim to help communities grow
and prosper through collaboration.
blossom is a blockchain technology, but although our system
does use DLT, we have not created a cryptocurrency due to
market volatility. This provides our users with a more stable
trading base, as we are integrating our technology industry-by-
industry. We also make use of quantum-safe encryption
methodologies to ensure that our users’ data can’t be touched
by any unauthorized parties.

Data Encryption Partner
Cryptalabrynthium is a patented, symmetric encryption
methodology that encrypts data in sizes of 4096 bits and greater,
and blossom has worked with the CRL team since our inception
to integrate this level of security into our roots. With their aid,
blossom has developed a data-protection standard that proves
to our users that we hold their right to their data in the highest
Smart City Dev. Partner
iNeighborhoods has developed a framework for building a smart
city that is described as a ‘layer cake’ of communication
between different community members/organizations, software,
and sensors. In this ‘cake,’ blossom is the ‘frosting,’ and we
facilitate exchanges of data between all of these endpoints. In
this way, we are helping to eas the complexity of smart city
projects and giving communities a clear path to follow when
constructing their version of a ‘smart city.’
