Digitalising Supply Chains

Ambrosus is a complete enterprise solution that combines Blockchain and Internet of Things technology to measure and record information about every corner of your supply chains.

Tech Overview

Tokenising Supply Chains

Turn any entity in your supply chain (item, batch, pallet, truck, etc.) into trusted digital assets that can be tracked, shared, and traded. We fully support most GS1 standards and let us leverage them in smart contracts.

For Apps and Embedded Devices

Our APIs and data models are based on more than 10 years of research and practical experience in the Web of Things and enables any application and device to interact with AMB-NET.

Private and Public Data

Not all data needs to be publicly visible. Some data should never never leave your own data center. Our hybrid solution enables you to finely tune which data is public to anyone or shared only with your most trusted partners and customers.

Core Concepts

Ambrosus provides a holistic and flexible data model that enables the frictionless onboarding of all real-world supply chain entities (product, batch, box), the measurement of their attributes, and the tracking of related logistical events. You can use our API to create unique digital identities for every item you want to track and analyze along the way. This identity and history will be stored permanently and immutably on the Ambrosus blockchain.

Assets

A digital identity for any physical or conceptual element in your supply chain. It can be an individual pot of yoghurt; a 6-pack of craft beer bottles; a pallet filled with various cases of medicine; a truck; or a box filled with sensors. Every Asset has a globally unique Ambrosus ID (AMB-ID) that is crypto-secured on AMB-NET’s distributed database. Developers can also use any external identifiers for assets, such as GS1’s GLN, GTIN, SSCC, and others.

Events

Record any relevant and time-stamped information that happened to one or multiple assets. Events should always contain the following information: WHAT (assets concerned), WHERE (location such as lat/long or GLN), WHO (the device/application/user that created the event), WHEN (timestamp), WHY (business process step). Ambrosus events are 100% compatible with GS1’s EPCIS format, allowing you to easily integrate any existing tracking system with Ambrosus.

Accounts

Every request on Ambrosus, such as creating or reading assets or events, must be cryptographically authenticated. Every application or device talking to Ambrosus needs an account, with corresponding private and public keys to verify their identity. Every request to the Ambrosus network needs to be signed using the private key, which is then matched by AMB-NET to the entity’s public key, in order to be approved by the system.

Key Features

Self-hosted or Cloud

If you are not ready to operate a full Masternode within your infrastructure, you can of course access AMB-NET via any masternode – including our own – through our standard REST APIs.

Secure by Design

We implement industry-leading tradecraft and proprietary expertise in blockchain and cryptographic technologies to ensure the highest level of security and trust. All transactions are immutable and can be audited at the click of a mouse. Ambrosus’ patented in-house technology has raised the bar for enterprise information security.

Open-Source

All the core technology in AMB-NET will ultimately be open-sourced, meaning there’s no vendor lock-in risk. You can customize our nodes to easily integrate your existing IT systems or tools with AMB-NET.

Developer-Centric

We come from the the developer world and our tools reflect this. We have worked hard to enhance our application flexibility, enabling Ambrosus to rapidly support a broad universe of data and source integrations, while eliminating the typical friction and delays of system onboarding.

Community-Driven

We are building a community of developers and contributors from all around the world to accelerate AMB-NET’s evolution. Ambrosus offers a generous reward of Amber (AMB) tokens to our most active participants. Want to build the next-generation of AMB-NET? Drop us a line at [email protected]!

Amber

The fuel of the Ambrosus ecosystem is Amber (AMB), a token which serves three purposes.

amber

Amber is used to pay for initiating activity or executing transactions on AMB-NET: Every time someone creates an asset or an event, they must pay a small fee in Amber to the other nodes in the network.

Amber can be locked during the lifetime of an asset. This ensures that the output of every processing step matches the input of that step and reduces the incentive for bad actors to defraud or deceive other counterparties within the supply chain.

Amber serves as collateral required to run a Masternode, where a certain amount needs to be locked into a smart contract for a certain node to to validate transactions on AMB-NET.
