Techniques are described herein for targeting the Enterprise drone market where the authorization and traceability of unmanned drones for service deliveries will be necessary in the near future. Currently, the implementation of drone tracking and its end to end flight validation is still poorly defined. Therefore, a consensus mechanism tying all entities within the drone ecosystem is needed (e.g., the manufacturer, insurance companies, smart city authorities, traffic controller, etc.). Described within is a consensus based smart contract using blockchain technology within the drone application which makes it permissible to fly and be tracked by a drone discovery protocol.
