Proposal Title: Blockchain Platform for Multiple Blockchains, Applications, and Analytics
Topic Number: H-SB016.1-009
Phase: Phase I
Topic Title: Blockchain Applications for Homeland Security Analytics
Organization: BlockCypher
Address: 652 Sea Anchor Dr #2202
Redwood City, CA 94063-2894  
Abstract: The purpose of this proposal is to provide a platform for multiple blockchains, applications, and the analysis of blockchain transactional data. BlockCypher has already built a blockchain infrastructure that supports a multitude of applications, e.g., identify management, internet-of-things (IoT), notary, embeddable assets, predictive analytics, etc. - and runs both closed and open blockchains on the same infrastructure. BlockCypher's platform currently supports the ability to embed encrypted data on any blockchain, predict which transactions will be accepted, and hosts a multitude of security measures that can provide a significant value proposition for homeland security applications. BlockCypher also stores and handles massive amounts of public blockchain transaction data (multiple terabytes) in distributed and redundant data stores. BlockCypher currently uses the data to do real-time predictive risk assessment and analysis. BlockCypher's proposal for Phase I is to design and prototype an analytical framework that allows DHS to utilize the data which is already being captured by BlockCypher and to make it actionable.
