  • IPFS is a peer-to-peer (p2p) storage network. Content is accessible through peers located anywhere in the LifeWatch ERIC network, that might relay information, store it, or do both. IPFS knows how to find files by using its content address rather than its location. It will be used mainly by the blockchain services.

  • The objective of this service is to implement a test network on blockchain technology for the permanent storage of data related to ecosystem variables and datasets. This instance of the service has been designed as a test network and is supported under Hyperledger Besu technology. It has full operability for tokens and smart contracts, with support for IBTF consensus and provides a service for reading and writing hashes stored in IPFS systems. Technical data for this testnet: - Name of the net: LifeBlock Testnet - NetworkId: 3170 - Coin: LifeCoin - Native token: LifeToken - Coins issued: 9.200.000 - Gas price: 0

  • CakeShop is a set of tools and APIs for working with Hyperledger Besu/Quorum, packaged as a Java web application archive (WAR). Tools included are blockchain explorer, node info, peer management, echanced permissions UI, solidity sandbox and contract registry. CakeShop will allow a more faster and secure deployment of LifeBlock nodes and resources.

  • The objective of this service is to provide LifeBlock's infrastructure with a connection point to hardware and software wallets, particularly Metamask. Through this service it is possible to connect to LifeBlock to use, manage, transfer, create tokens and LifeCoins. Technical data for this service: - Name of the net: LifeBlock Testnet - NetworkId: 3170 - RPC URL: Currency Symbol: LifeCoin - Block explorer URL:

  • The Karst Research Institute ZRC SAZU installed a meteorological station with soil sensors in Sela pri Otovcu (Bela krajina) in SE-Slovenia, near the habitat of black proteus (Proteus anguinus parkelj). The meteorological station with soil sensors includes a central processing and memory unit, sensors (solar radiation, air pressure, air temperature, humidity, precipitation, snow cover height, soil temperature and humidity), wireless data transmission module and power supply unit (solar panel). The equipment was purchased on 16 April 2021 within the RI-SI-LifeWatch project. It is intended for monitoring all major meteorological parameters for the purposes of ecological and karst habitat research.

  • Data Services provide the users with tools in order to: a) publish their datasets and make them available to the community by providing information that allows a user to locate and access the resource and its curator/creator, b) import their datasets to the Lifewatch Greece Infrastructure and to GBIF or MedOBIS, c) perform biodiversity data and information quality improvement, and d) search about datasets of interest by providing an efficient way of querying semantic networks. The schema of the data that is provided by the users is mapped to the semantic model of the LWI and the data is transformed to LWI format before it is stored to the Infrastructure. The semantic model is based on CIDOC CRM (, CRM dig, CRM geo, CRM sci and MarineTLO ( Login is required to access the service.

  • This service aims at converting coordinates expressed in any format (MGRS, UTM, sexagesimal geographic) to decimal geographic coordinates, which is the GBIF publication format.

  • ERC-20 token located in LifeBlock Testnet. This is the reference token of LifeBlock Testnet and will be used for generic purposes related to the operation of LifeBlock.

  • Prometheus is an open source monitoring solution used to get data, make queries, provide visualizations and set up alerts inside Lifeblock Testnet and IPFS environment.

  • wateRinfo facilitates access to, a website managed by the Flanders Environment Agency (VMM) and Flanders Hydraulics Research. The website provides access to real-time water and weather related environmental variables for Flanders (Belgium), such as rainfall, air pressure, discharge, and water level. The package provides functions to search for stations and variables, and download time series.
