How can we store data generated from IoT devices to cloud and blockchain.
As salman bro has told there are many ways to upload data to cloud like gcp, amazon s3 buckets and many more. But, I would suggest you to facilitate us with more details like what is the application that you are using to upload the data whether it's a temperature values from a DHT sensor or kinda stuff.
Because, there are many simple and as complex ways to upload the data. If you are in the idea of using a laptop or a system with an internet connection at the project area then I would suggest you to go with Adafruit IO cloud services. You don't have to use any external shields or wifi modules to do this. You can use a simple python script running over your laptop that reads the values from the arduino and pushes them to the cloud.
Adafruit IO is super easy to use for the beginners and flexible due to it's API. If you don't have to use a laptop then grab nodeMCU which has an on-board WiFi module that connects to nearby WiFi networks and uploads the data. The Adafruit IO has pretty good interfaces for Data visualization. Check out their website https://io.adafruit.com/
@kowshik1729 we are trying to store readings from vehicles like to blockchain. For the purpose of securly recording the data which can be further used for forensics. But before implementing it with blockchain we are trying to learn how to store these data to cloud. As a first step we are thinking to use arduino or rasberry pi to learn things. Later moving to NODEMCU.

@Abhay I would like to specify some things. As you told you are in prototyping stage and your project obviously involves sensors, my suggestion is to go with any MCU's like arduino or Nodemcu kinda stuff.
Because raspberry pi can be used only when you need a replica of functionality that a computer gives. So, I suggest you to take up MCU's like nodeMCU, ESP32 and if I'm correct there is a variation of Arduino with an inbuilt esp8266 wifi chip over it. I'm sure there is one like that. Incase of any change in the functionality of the project you can go on with your own method. This is just a suggestion.
@kowshik1729 thank you, for the suggestion. Its informative.
Recently, I got a chance to work work the SeeedStudio T1000 tracker and I made a tracker and data logger with it. It comes with a LoRa module to transmit the data and has an inbuilt temperature and light sensor. The device is very easy to set up and get-started and I can say the experience of switching from different LoRa network servers is very pleasant and straightforward, same for the integration. I chose Ubidots to visualise the data captured.
I also like the mobile application very much, it’s so easy to pair and change the tracker configuration on the go. I love it.
I will experiment more and share my insights here. let me know if you want to know any specific details about the SenseCAP T1000.
It’s live on Kickstarter and you can pledge for $29 for single T1000 tracker, you will get 1 piece T1000 with 3 months of free trial service on the SenseCAP platform. Take a look : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/seeed/sensecap-t1000-track-what-you-care-with-no-boundaries
@dipu_varghese Hi, How does it go? Would like to know about the updates or anything I can do to help you.
@zainmuhammed Oh that's cool. Let me also take a look at the stability analysis of a drone and get back to you.
@salmanfaris I'm building a payload-releasing drone under 2kg (micro class). and the entire structure builds using carbon fiber and ABS plastic.
@zainmuhammed Curious to know, What kind of drone are you building and what kind of material are you using?
