News about the BMW Group being interested in blockchain technology broke out last year, the Bavarian officials saying back then that this kind of tech could have varied uses, especially in securing customer data used on board of their cars. The company will be the host of the first European colloquium of the Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative, set to take place starting tomorrow at the BMW Group IT Center in Munich.
The colloquium will be bringing together members of the consortium co-founded by the BMW Group plus representatives of well-known technology companies from around the world and blockchain start-ups and specialists. The main goal of the two-day event will be to serve as a platform for sharing knowledge and experience and to promote and develop common standards for applying blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLT) in the mobility industry.
