Pilot a blockchain for business — free beta!
Want an easy and economical way to get started with blockchain development? Try the new IBM Blockchain Platform Starter Plan, currently in beta. This development and testing environment is ideal for developers who are exploring blockchain technology and want to build a business blockchain for demos, pilots, and pre-production staging.
With the new Starter Plan, you get:
- One-click setup of a pre-configured blockchain network consisting of two members, two peers, a certificate authority, an ordering service, and a channel
- Sample apps you can deploy and demo as is, and start customizing
- A pre-production staging environment for your business logic and applications
- A Swagger UI to help you easily integrate APIs into your applications
- No learning curve when migrating to a full production network, because the Starter Plan offers the same experience as the Enterprise plans
