- IOTA, Intel, and Dell’s Alvarium project focuses on providing trustworthy data for business-critical functions.
- The project has completed a pilot integration of the data confidence fabric for digitalMRV integration.
Alvarium Project Progress Update
Since its launch last year, the Alvarium project- a collaboration between IOTA, Intel, and Dell- has been relatively quiet. Their last social media activity on Twitter was on October 12, 2021, announcing the addition of the Linux Foundation (LF) into the consortium. The Alvarium project aims to provide modern industries with trustworthy data for business-critical functions.

Real-World Use Case
In an earlier post this year, the IOTA Foundation demonstrated a real-world use case for the project. The team suggested that the Alvarium project could reduce friction by measuring the trustworthiness of data involved in vaccine rollouts. By managing the provenance of vaccines and tracking vaccine distribution data, the Alvarium project could effectively streamline this process.
Recent Developments and Future Plans
In a recent update, Mat Yarger, a lead developer with the Alvarium project, shared new insights into the progress. Yarger explained that the project is still on track, with all participants actively involved. The developers have just completed a pilot integration of the data confidence fabric for digitalMRV integration. This digital measurement, reporting, and verification system is built on IOTA Distributed Ledger Technology to enhance climate action and sustainability.
The project is now focused on exploring several follow-on options to scale out with much larger and more varied integrations and projects. Yarger also confirmed that the project has attracted significant interest from some of the world’s largest consortiums, which are looking to integrate the project into their businesses.
The Linux Foundation has managed the project’s website and social media presence since joining the group. While there have been numerous developments, the group has refrained from publicizing and creating hype around something that is not yet proven publicly.
Dominik Schiener, Co-Founder of the IOTA Foundation, noted that there is a convergence in technologies and a growth in data utilization. However, for this to succeed at scale, there must be trust in the data being used.
