IBM Blockchain Platform provides a managed blockchain service that is cloud-hosted (or on-prem) which allows for [the] rapid development of blockchain networks. In an experiment to understand how blockchain technology could be used in our research, we ran an IBM Blockchain Platform instance on our cloud solution. This helps with the management and operation of blockchain networks, without needing to do everything via CLI.
- Good User Interface
- Fast Speed
- Good Documentation
- More Management Tools
- More Demos
Very useful in being able to set up, operate, manage and govern a blockchain network. This is useful to get started quickly, so as to focus on the value-adds that blockchain provides. A way in which it can be improved would be providing more educational/academic licenses to get students and academics more involved.
The support team is very helpful in answering queries. Furthermore, there is good documentation and demos to understand what is going on. Together, this helps with better being able to make use of the IBM Blockchain Platform. However, having more support through face-to-face interactions with the IBM Blockchain Platform team would be even more ideal.
