INCUBED is a trustless INcentivized remote Node Network with which it is possible to establish a decentralized and secure network of remote-nodes, and enables trustworthy and fast access to blockchain for a large number of low-performing IoT devices. INCUBED, though, is only part of a greater product Slock.it is building at the moment. The Slock.it IoT Layer includes payment channels, hub services, a discovery service (marketplace for IoT devices) a messaging system, access control smart contracts and integrations within existing IoT clouds, as well as software images for commonly used systems on a chip such as the raspberry pi or the samsung artik.
