Jaguar Land Rover To Reward Customers Using IOTA Cryptocurrency

Jaguar automobiles have ventured into the world of Blockchain Technology seeking ways to better reward their customers, while also collecting feedback data for product improvement.

The areas where blockchain technology can be applied is becoming increasingly alarming and at the same time interesting. It is gaining value in areas of our private life on a daily basis.

Who would have thought that a technology that came to us only as a means of substitute money as we previously called it, would now be considered for mainstream Adoption and Integration in all sectors of our economy from supply chains to economics, automotive and also investment fields?

All these industries are not lacking in ways to deploy and implement the use of blockchain in application development all for the sole purpose of improving existing systems.

In a publication released by the International Business Times, Jaguar Land Rover seems to be currently testing new software that allows users of the automobile to earn digital assets (cryptocurrency) whenever the users give feedback on the issue of the cars’ performance in particular places. in other words, users get rewarded for providing data.

In line with this development, IOTA seems to be the cryptocurrency with which the app will be built. The automobile giant believes that this strategy is perfect for obtaining real-live information, and this will, in turn, help them guide against avoidable mechanism-failures and prevent accident for users of the Jaguar automobile.

IOTA wants to enable interoperability with all these different players. So there is no Jaguar coin, no BMW coin, but one Universal Token for this machine economy.

-Dominik Schiener, IOTA Foundation Co-Founder and Co-Chairman.

Speaking further, Schiener said IOTA is designed to easily solve most of the inefficiencies facing other blockchains particularly because he believes IOTA operates on top the Distributed Ledger Tech (DLT) called Tangle which is expected to connect IoT with Web 3.0.

Blockchain adoption has left its speculative days for good and is being explored by many more companies that could have been imagined. he benefits of the blockchain technology are too numerous and attractive to be turned down. It offers customers a reward system that can, in turn, build and attract customer loyalty to a specific brand.

Justin Sun to launch Tron-based Decentralized stablecoin. Why should we care? 

Published

on

Founder of the Tron Blockchain, Justin Sun has hinted at plans to launch a stablecoin based on the Tron blockchain. 

This was made via his Twitter account hours ago.

According to the tweet, the TRON community will launch a new decentralized stablecoin backed by the TRX and BTT token. 

 

 

There was little information given by the tweet but Justin Sun posted a question to the entire community, and it is for the best name for the new stablecoin. 

Stablecoins have grown in numbers since the eventual launch of US dollar backed Tether (USDT). Ever since then, various fiat currency pegged stablecoins have been made available on the market. 

The stability of this cryptocurrency class has also pricked the interest of governments and private corporations,  the decision of Facebook to launch Libra provides a testament to the global interest in stablecoins which does away with the apparent honeypot feature of non-stable cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, ethereum and other non-stablecoins. Volatility. 

Nations CBDC has also become a fascinating way to utilize the idea behind stablecoins. Several countries are experimenting and others such as China are already getting ready. 

Justin Sun’s decision to launch a decentralized stablecoin may be a noble cause, but the optics of this decision may show a contrary view. 

Tron and the founders Justin from its earliest time has been involved in certain controversies such as plagiarizing the White Paper of other projects and copying codes from Ethereum, has also been linked to pump and dump schemes most especially with the use of its wide audience to manipulate value of coins by tweeting mostly inconsequential pieces. 

The new stablecoin will be decentralized according to Justin Sun. While the decentralization is not absolute, complete decentralisation is a myth and it has been a much discussed topic in the space. It therefore begs a very important question, since it’s claimed to be decentralized, who will be the horses pulling the chariot. 

With many stablecoins in the market, one would wonder why launch a new one, there are mostly two options on ground, it’s either the stablecoin markets offer very juicy returns that the Tron blockchain will benefit from the volume as the ‘horses’ also does, or Justin Sun has ran out of ideas. 

For the community’s sake, let it be the first.
