The development board for the decentralised world

With Elk you can build decentralised IoT that protects your privacy, accepts payments, interacts with smart contracts, and much more

With another 41 days to go on Kickstarter, the Elk has already reached its goals. Elk is a development board for the blockchain and the decentralized web. It combines the simplicity of Arduino along with native support for decentralized networks. With only a few lines of code you can build IoT that interfaces with Ethereum, IPFS, Whisper, and much more. 

The Elk development board includes a powerful processor (Allwinner H3) to connect directly to decentralized networks with no intermediaries. It is plug-and-play just like an Arduino, includes an Arduino compatible SDK, and a mobile app that allows you to communicate with your hardware privately through decentralized technologies.


  • Easy to use and extensible SDK for Ethereum, Whisper, IPFS, Status, and more on the way.
  • A mobile app to easily control your hardware via Whisper
  • Arduino Compatible
  • Breadboard Compatible
  • 100% open-source (hardware and software)


  • Dual inline breadboard compatible hardware board (55mm x 25.5mm)
  • Quad Core 1Ghz Linux SoC (H3 from Allwinner) with 512MB of DDR3 RAM
  • 8GB mass storage eMMC persistant storage
  • 100Mhz 32-bit microcontroller (STM32f411 from STM)
  • 2.4Ghz WiFi module with an integrated antenna
  • 2 push-buttons

Exposed IOs (all are 3.3V but 5V tolerant):

  • 28 Digital
  • 10 Analog
  • 2 UART
  • 3 I2C
  • 3 SPI
  • 21 PWM
