IOTA (MIOTA) Makes it into the Auto Industry: Here’s Why

Published

on

IOTA

IOTA is finally trading in the green while going up against the dollar as the market is finally showing some improvement. As of the latest change in the last 2 hours, the majority of currencies are going up, while MIOTA makes no exception. However, we are more interested in the list of all the partnerships IOTA has acquired during the previous period, realizing that all of the sealed partnership were actually strategic. So, after getting its own IOTA charging station for electric vehicles in the Netherlands a couple of weeks ago IOTA is now working on new goals.

IOTA and the Auto Industry

Going above TRON during the massive rebound in April, IOTA has reached the spot of the 9th-best currency in accordance with global coin ranking list and due to its market capitalization. During its rebound, IOTA even managed to have its first IOTA charging station for electric vehicles set up for active operation in the Netherlands, which contributed to the mass adoption and showcased one of the real-life purposes that match the technological capabilities of MIOTA’s network, Tangle.

However, this is not the end of the story of mass adoption and real-life use of decentralized ecosystems, as IOTA has made some remarkable partnership in the previous period, that way making its strategic move towards its next plan.

Having been partnered up with companies like Volkswagen and Porsche, which are both automotive magnums, IOTA is making room for having its technology reaching the industry of automotive and electric vehicles.

With Tangle, IOTA has a plan to enable easy and simple, cost-effective connectivity between machines, creating decentralized machine-to-machine communication which would be driven by MIOTA.

In this case scenario, machine-to-machine communication model would serve the purpose of connecting your vehicle to your computing system in order to achieve better driving performance and get the most out of your vehicle.

That way, IOTA can create decentralized applications that serve the purpose of preventing car crashes and accidents on the road, simply and easily by using the technological capabilities of Tangle, which is a superb and fast decentralized ecosystem, although with a different infrastructure when compared to other platforms.

With Tangle, IOTA goes beyond traditionally known blockchain- based platforms but makes up for its own industry while being connected to the Internet of Things, considering it the future model of business ventures and industry collusion.

IOTA, partnered up with massive auto companies, can even establish a transfer system that would serve the purpose of paying for different services and products, all through your vehicle.

This could be easily done with Tangle, given the fact that IOTA can successfully perform machine-to-machine communication, which is probably the main reason why these auto giants were interested in partnering up with IOTA in the first place.

Besides from Porsche, Volkswagen, and IOTA, 30 more companies related to the auto industry have joined the movement called Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative (Mobi), with the purpose of presenting connectivity resolutions for machine-to-machine communication in the auto industry, all supported by Tangle.

This alliance could most probably sky-rocket IOTA while presenting it to its real-life purpose.

How is IOTA doing at the Current Moment?

April was pretty benevolent to MIOTA as this currency managed to acquire a pretty smooth rebound, while it also launched first crypto charging station for electric vehicles and sealing very important partnerships within the auto industry.

With May 13th, the market trend also seems to be changing as we can see the majority of currencies moving up.

Holding onto the spot of the 9th-best currency, MIOTA is also going up against the dollar today while trading in the green.

Following the latest change in the market after a week-long trend of plummeting, MIOTA has gone up by 4.43% against the dollar in the last 24 hours.

In addition to collecting gains against this fiat currency, MIOTA is also going up against Bitcoin, while trading in the green and rising up by 2.40% against this crypto.

After the latest change in the market, MIOTA can now be traded at the price of 1.91$ per one unit. With this pace of growth, it is realistic to expect to see MIOTA reaching and breaking through the value of 2$ per one unit in the following days. However, this case might be postponed in case the market turns sluggish again.

IOTA made its record price of around 5.20$ per one unit back at the end of December of 2017 when it was predicted that the current year of 2018 would be THE year for cryptocurrencies, which isn’t far from the truth if you take a close look at how far certain assets have gone.

Hong Kong, Hong Kong, 25th January, 2021, // ChainWire //

Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.

Xeno NFT Hub (market.xno.live ), developed by Xeno Holdings, enables easy minting of digital items into NFTs while also providing a marketplace where anyone can securely trade NFTs.

The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.

NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?

Published

on

2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for.  While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory.  When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion.  But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.

I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness.  Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion.  Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special.  Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.

Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology

It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.  Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different.  Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
