Import Ethereum private keys to AWS KMS

In the world of digital assets, private keys have always been of utmost importance. Unlike traditional assets, digital assets are controlled by private keys (a string of letters and numbers), just like passwords, which unlock the right to manage and use assets. Private keys can be used to irreversibly transfer funds from the wallet, thus, […]

Gain insights from Web3 data with The Graph and Amazon Managed Blockchain

Analyzing data originating on a blockchain can be a challenging and time-consuming process due to the complexity and variety of smart contract structures. This primary obstacle requires an in-depth understanding of the various platforms you wish to analyze. In the Web3 space, each protocol has their own way of storing and calling methods, making implementation […]

Implement a CI/CD pipeline for Ethereum smart contract development on AWS – Part 2

This post discusses the implementation details of an Ethereum smart contract CI/CD pipeline as outlined in a previous post, which is considered a prerequisite to the topics discussed in this post. Part 1 highlighted some of the challenges faced by a multi-developer team implementing a decentralized application (dApp) and how CI/CD can help address those […]

Streamline interstate Department of Motor Vehicles collaboration with Private Blockchain

According to the United States Census Bureau, over 7.9 million Americans moved from one state to another in 2021 alone. One of the tasks an individual must complete when moving from state to state is trading in their driver’s license from their former state of residence for a license in their new state of residence. Each state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is responsible for the issuance and management of driver’s licenses within the state, and this requires collaboration with other state DMVs to gather important data such as traffic offenses occurring out of state. In this post, we discuss how blockchain can streamline driver’s license issuance and foster deeper collaboration between DMVs in all 50 states and why blockchain is a compelling technology choice.

Implement a CI/CD pipeline for Ethereum smart contract development on AWS – Part 1

Continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) is a process that automates software development workflows and deploys better quality software that avoids bugs and code failure. CI/CD removes the manual human intervention that was traditionally needed to get code changes from development environments to production servers. With a CI/CD pipeline, code changes are automatically detected, built, […]

IPFS on AWS, Part 3: Store NFT data on IPFS

This series of posts provides a comprehensive introduction to running IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) on AWS: In Part 1, we introduce the IPFS concepts and test IPFS features on an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance In Part 2, we propose a reference architecture and build an IPFS cluster on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service […]

IPFS on AWS, Part 2: Deploy a production IPFS cluster on Amazon EKS

This series of posts provides a comprehensive introduction to running IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) on AWS: In Part 1, we introduce the IPFS concepts and test IPFS features on an Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instance In Part 2, we propose a reference architecture and build an IPFS cluster on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service […]

IPFS on AWS, Part 1 – Discover IPFS on a virtual machine

IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) is a storage protocol that allows content to be stored in a decentralized manner on the global IPFS network, without relying on any central entity. IPFS-enabled applications can benefit from a high level of redundancy and low latency, because content can be replicated, looked up, and downloaded from nearby IPFS nodes. […]

Build a digital asset tokenization framework for financial services use cases using Amazon Managed Blockchain – Part 1

This is the first post in a series of posts covering digital asset tokenization in financial services, a topic which is seeing tremendous interest in the sector. The series aims to be a guide for financial services customers looking to learn more about the topic, and who may be considering building a digital asset capability for their […]

Retrieve Bitcoin and Ethereum Public Blockchain Data with Amazon Managed Blockchain Query

Over the past two years, public blockchain adoption has been driven by three primary use cases: decentralized finance (DeFi), which provides an open financial system built using smart contracts on public blockchains non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that certify ownership of digital assets and enable broad transferability of those digital assets digital currency payments that enable value […]
