IBM Outsmarts Future Thieves of Drone-Delivered Packages Using Blockchain

The future of e-commerce may involve fewer human intervention, even during deliveries. Studies and tests in the use of drones during deliveries are bringing us closer to this reality. However, futuristic delivery solutions still face a classic problem: theft.

Technology giant IBM may have just solved the potential issues of delivery drones getting hacked for theft. The company has been recently awarded a patent for a security system for delivery drones using blockchain technology.

The patent filing was published last October 2, 2019, on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) website. The technology includes a program that monitors events that would determine potential security risks in the system.

However, a monitor in a typical system can easily be intruded by a hacker as the devices are independent of each other. The hackers can “clean up” past events and gain control of the delivery drones.

According to the document first filed by IBM back in September 2017, having all the monitors in a chain configuration will enable the system to detect any security breaches immediately. As these events are registered in the network, the system can prevent any further penetration and any other types of hacks.

A security system “living” on the blockchain can easily flag a hacked monitor by checking all existing copies of the secured monitors in the chain. Any information received during specific events or transactions that differ from what is expected may signify a compromised monitor.

The security system will take advantage of the same technology that makes cryptocurrency secure. Monitor systems implemented in blockchain technology will create a less vulnerable network and provide enhanced security.

According to Coin Telegraph, IBM is one of the leading research bodies with the most blockchain-related patents filed. They are almost tied with the Chinese e-commerce behemoth, Alibaba. IBM currently has 89 patents, while Alibaba has 90.

IBM is combining innovations in security and blockchain technology to make drones more viable for commercial use in the near future. They also filed another patent in September that uses blockchain to improve privacy rules for drones during high-risk communications with UAVs.

How do you make money with your drone, though?

Okay, so you got your new and fancy drone, but how do you stand out from any dad out there who has the same drone and watched some tutorials online?

I did exactly that and barely had any success. 

But now I’m charging 5x as much as before and even have to refuse clients from time to time.

I even bought about 7 online courses… and I didn’t make much progress.

So how did I finally make it to this level?

If you want the short answer, I learned everything from this guy Alex, who’s making $200 per hour with his drone. And he’s even teaching exactly how to do that.

This is pretty much what you need to know:

how-to-make-money-with-drones

1. Make sure you have a proper drone.

If you have any of the latest DJI Drones, like the Mavic Air 2, for example, you’re ready to start making money.

No need to overthink this, but if it’s any help, check this comparison of the best camera drones compared in 2020.

2.Learn how to create the best content to stand out

You won’t stand out from the next dad who bought a DJI drone for Cristmass in the eyes of your clients if you don’t do this.

It’s WAY more important to know what you’re doing than the gear you have.

You’ll need to learn and master the following:

  1.  
  • Flying your drone(to stand out from people with basic drone shots)
  • Preparing for the flight and weather in advance
  • Learn the best drone settings (you need a proper setup template)
  • Create the Video Script (it's way easier if you know what to shoot)
  • Have a set of great cinematic shots you know how to do
  • Know how to edit the video so it stands out
  • Learn how to color grade

This is why you HAVE to invest in a proper way to learn things (instead of watching tutorials here and there).

3.Find clients that pay 5x more than regular

But not so fast.

You won’t make a penny if you don’t know how to find your clients.

I have struggled finding clients even when my videos were getting pretty good.

Until I learned a few tricks and how to find and approach them so they won’t be able to say no.

And what’s best, I learned how to get the price I asked for.

How can you do the same?

I have tested quite a few courses online and watched tons of videos on youtube, but frankly, I have learned more from one single course than from everything else… and all that in like a weekend.

Made back the money from this investment in myself in a single week and then much more.

 

How do I learn all of this? From youtube?

You could simply go online and learn everything in terms of video from youtube, forums, facebook groups etc.

However, let me tell you, it’s the worst way to learn all of this(and the slowest).

You won’t have a Complete Step By step guide on how to do everything.

I found myself frustrated, even after I learned how to do most of the video stuff that I still lacked some knowledge and I didn’t know why my shots weren’t standing out.

I got some general promotion ideas from some articles online, but again… I didn’t have much success and was charging too little for my time.

This is exactly where I learned how to make $200 per hour with my drone (From A to Z)

This course is hold by Alex Harris, who’s an international video creator, director, and drone operator with tons of experience.

And I had a great time stealing his know-how(and greatly profited from it, lol).

I recommend you watch his video presentation bellow and check out the course sales page. It’s quite cheap, considering you’re getting 320+ minutes of everything you need to know, step by step and 80+ minutes on how to actually find the ideal clients for you.

I'm a big drone enthusiast, the owner of DronesGator.com and I also make weekly videos on my drone YouTube channel.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
