Blockchain is fundamentally transforming how business and individuals transact with one another through its ability to facilitate trust at scale without the need for intermediaries. Trusted transactions can dramatically reduce dispute resolution time, cut costs, and add the utmost level of security to your transactions. Through blockchain, the collective can achieve greater value than any single institution could on its own.

IBM Blockchain Platform addresses these business needs and helps innovative businesses to disrupt their industries. The platform will soon offer multiple membership plans, so you can customize your blockchain network depending on your stage of maturity.

Introducing the Starter Plan

Blockchain begins a new age of collaborative thinking, creating the need to decentralize the development process. Developers from multiple organizations now work collaboratively to design and build blockchain applications. That’s why we created IBM Blockchain Platform, Starter Plan: to remove the barrier to building a blockchain application so that any developer — whether enterprise, start-up, academic, experienced, or novice — can begin the blockchain journey and disrupt their industry.

The Starter Plan provides a pre-configured network of two members, each with one peer, where you can test your proof-of-concept to refine and create your MVP. In just one click, you receive a fully functional blockchain network to begin testing. You can add more members to your network and migrate to the Enterprise Plan when you’re ready.

With the Starter Plan, you have easy access to our most popular development tools, including tutorials on using our online playground and a development environment to help you build your business network definition using Hyperledger Composer.

The Starter Plan also includes tools to collaborate and understand network and business growth. Along with your kick-starter network, you have the ability to simulate multiple organizations. The Starter Plan’s uniquely designed interface allows you to put business logic into actionable code. It’s modular and customizable, too. With the Starter Plan, you have the ability to purchase additional support services as needed for low-cost proof-of-concept or basic pilot evaluation.
