We introduce a novel, decentralized architecture facilitating consensual, blockchain-secured computation and verification of data/knowledge. Through the integration of (i) a decentralized content-addressable storage system, (ii) a decentralized communication and time stamping server, and (iii) a decentralized computation module, it enables a scalable, transparent, and semantically interoperable cloud robotics ecosystem, capable of powering the emerging internet of robots.
