The recent revolution of the Internet of Things has given the birth of a series of new technologies and cyber-physical systems to be used in industrial and home scenarios. Cyber- physical systems include physical and software components for providing smart monitoring and control with flexibility and adaptability to the operating context. The IoT paradigm enables the intertwined use of physical and software components through the interconnection of devices that exchange data with each other without direct human interaction in several fields, especially in industrial and home environments. We propose DeCyMo, a decentralized architecture that aims at solving common IoT issues and vulnerabilities leveraging the centralized structure of IoT and the distributed architecture of the blockchain. Our experimental setup uses Docker containers on the IoT gateway and the Multichain blockchain for handling validated transac- tions without a central trusted authority. Preliminary results demonstrate the flexibility, the extensibility and the security of DeCyMo in industrial and home environments through a reinterpretation of the role of the IoT gateway
