The integration of Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud services with edge technologies has enabled the development of many new types of edge services, which leverage blockchain features for cross-organizational, traceable and verifiable records. However, developing such edge services with blockchain features requires not only knowledge about complex blockchain technologies but also how blockchain technologies coexist with edge computing service models and architectures and deployments. In the context of edge service development, coupling edge systems, software models for edge services and blockchain technologies is complex. Thus, a strong collaboration and knowledge sharing for edge systems and blockchain technologies will help addressing many concerns of the developer. However, there is a lack of frameworks for sharing knowledge about blockchain software artefacts and deployments for edge services. In this paper, we present various types of information linking blockchain performance with service deployments at different levels. We represent and associate benchmarked performance information of blockchain operation and blockchain infrastructural services
with common edge service interactions and resource deployments. Based on that, we develop a service offering blockchain knowledge to the developer seeking relevant blockchain operation information for their development decisions. We will present a prototype of our framework with benchmarked information obtained from experiments with Ethereum and Hyperledger.
