Revolutionizing the Mining, Petroleum & Forestry Industries

Revolutionizing the Mining, Petroleum & Forestry Industries

The ClaimBlock Network introduces the mining, petroleum, and forestry industries to the blockchain.

We aim to create a decentralized economy through which a data-focused, blockchain-based ecosystem of applications solves the problems of data fragmentation, inefficiency, and trust throughout these key industries.

Existing industry players are incentivized to use the system for cost savings and improvement to efficiency, while new participants are encouraged to join the economy through the reduced barriers to entry afforded by decentralization.

ClaimBlock’s Decentralized Future

Major companies such as De Beers and BHP Billiton already use private blockchains in their supply chains, while other companies are delving into small-scale projects. We are taking the next step and creating a public, decentralized solution for the entire market.

The infrastructure of the ClaimBlock Network will be heavily focused on the democratization of data and streamlining of existing processes.

Increased Efficiency and Sustainability

In industries where tracking the sources and methods of extraction of materials is critically important, every aspect of a project and each point in the supply chain must be closely monitored.

Our platform addresses the need for efficiency, sustainability, and accountability throughout the project life cycle and across the entire supply chain.

Decentralized Economy

The total combined annual expenditures for the global mining, petroleum, and forestry industries exceed $1.39 trillion USD. By building the blockchain foundation which serves every aspect of these markets, we aim to create a complete economy based around the ClaimBlock Network.

Resource Listing System (RLS)

The first DApp in development for the ClaimBlock Network is the RLS (Resource Listing System).

The RLS will be a mineral title transaction and title storage system built on the ClaimBlock Network infrastructure, in which purchase transactions and joint venture agreements for mining and petroleum properties can be carried out through a smart contract ecosystem. Our goal with this first application is to make mineral and petroleum rights as universally accessible as real estate.

Over time we will provide assistance to jurisdictions with outdated mineral rights registries to upgrade their systems and “leapfrog” to the blockchain era.

ClaimBlock Architecture

ClaimBlock Architecture

01 - Decentralized Layer

Includes Ethereum blockchain, smart contract and project data related to a particular title. This layer is responsible for reducing the dependency on ClaimBlock by storing transactional data on the Ethereum blockchain while the related title and claim data is stored in the IPFS distributed storage. This enables companies to access their data without necessarily having to go through the ClaimBlock DApp.

02 - ClaimBlock Cloud Backend

The cloud backend services are:

  1. API Gateway: providing API for fast interaction with blockchain, search function, and IPFS data.
  2. ETL/Data Pipelines: responsible for extracting transforming and loading data into the search cluster and IPFS storage
  3. Search Cluster: provides for fast search queries
  4. Application Tier: responsible for hosting web site and application logic.

03 - Client/Web Tier

Represents customer and partners environments: Web browsers, API servers, Government databases, etc.
