How I am using Hive for a business project?

in LeoFinance5 months ago

Hello everyone ,

This is not my usual data related post but would like to share something which I have been working on .


So couple of weeks ago , a new project came to me in my office and it was related to temperature monitoring in the server rooms.

So basically I have to put a temperature sensor in the office and keep on monitoring the temperature .

If the temperature reaches certain threshold a mail should go to the relevant department .

While exploring this , I started listing down the requirements -

  1. Temperature sensor [ Costed about 1$]
  2. Arduino board to read the sensor data. [ Costs about 4$]
  3. A database to store the data.
  4. Program which reads the database and sends mail [ I have written this in python]

So 1,2,4 was covered easily but when I approached the IT department for 3rd , they said ahh we already have too much of data in the MySQL database and do you plan to keep the old data ?

I said yes it would help in analysis and other related stuff . They were against the idea of keeping old data because there are 5 server rooms in each building we own and we own 5 building [ total of 25 rooms data ] .

That is when I thought , hey wait , why not use Hive for this? A simple Custom_JSON transaction .


I set it up and running within 2 days and everything is working smoothly right now.

I can keep pushing the data [ right now it publishes to the blockchain only if the temperature is equal to or above 20* C ]

I can read the historical data and I need not spend any money on this unless I run out of RC .

I delegated some RC from my main account to account for testing it out . The testing is complete and we will be making it live in the coming month .



Now this wasn't sensitive data so I didn't use any encryption . If needed I will just encrypt the JSON and push it to the blockchain .

Here "T" is the temperature and "Name" is the Building Name and "Server Room" is self-explanatory .

Only thing I need to make sure is that I have enough RC in the account .

Will post the results when all 25 rooms data is live

After this project , I am thinking if there is any other data that I can push to Hive after encryption instead of putting it all in the MySQL database .

Regards ,

This is terrific. We are looking at so many options. I want to talk to you about your AI idea also. Can we use GPT-3 for something amazing on Hive? I think I have something in mind.

DM me.

Without any doubt . I am exploring more ways to use Hive.

That is great practical, cheap and decentralized use.

Exact words I told my Manager when he asked why blockchain?

We're so focused on posting for upvotes and earnings, that we tend to forget that blockchain can be used for so much more. This is a practical application of blockchain to solve a workplace problem. This is a great example of how programmers and developers can use Hive blockchain in the workplace.

Now this is thinking outside the box.

Great work mate!

Thanks a lot :)

Just a start, thinking of utilizing Hive more .

That is an interesting use case and I think that is good. I just wonder what would happen when we have more people transacting on Hive because RC cost might just go up by a lot.

Which is good isn't it? It will put buy pressure on Hive . I wouldn't mind buying Hive to increase my RC .
