CoinDesk reports that “Four of the world’s largest carmakers have joined tech providers and startups to form the biggest-ever consortium focused on applying blockchain tech in the automotive sector.”
The consortium that connects them is the recently launched Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative (MOBI).
MOBI’s goal here is to enable payments and data-sharing between cars through common standards and APIs to open the way for a new digital mobility ecosystem.
The initial work will form project teams focusing on areas such as vehicle identity and data tracking, ride sharing, mobility ecosystem commerce, and data markets for both autonomous and human driving.
