Ierovino explained the firm’s choice of Johnny Depp saying, “Johnny has the ability to conceptualize material in a way that few can, and is unburdened of conventional industry formulas that dictate the projects that get made, traditionally. As we make strides to embrace disruptiveness, Johnny will be a key collaborator with us and we are tremendously excited to back his visions and instincts on stories to bring to life.”

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.

Proposed Tron partnership with Liverpool In the Pipelines

Justin Sun, the CEO of Tron who’s extremely active on Twitter, tweeted a video earlier in the week hinting at a proposed partnership with the famous English premier league football club, Liverpool though some people have dismissed the video as inconsequential and criticized Sun for deliberately misleading people with the announcement.

The tweeted short video shows a red envelope that reveals a screen with the Tron logo alongside Liverpool’s. Then the manager Jurgen Klopp shares the philosophy of the football club, implying that the club is inviting Tron to partner with the football club.

The caption attached to the video by Sun says “Thank you for the unique and innovative invitation, Liverpool! I am impressed and I’m looking forward to exploring this #TRON new partnership together!.”

But the nature of the partnership is unclear, and Sun didn’t include any specific details about it.

Dismissed as fake

In another tweet, Kraken’s CEO, Jesse Powell, responded with a screenshot of an email sent to him from “Liverpool” about a partnership. The fake email included a reference to a video package that was sent to him. Jesse dismissed it as a scam.

Decrypt Media also claimed it spoke with a representative of Liverpool Football Club who allegedly confirmed that the club does not intend to have a partnership with Tron.

Though Sun has often been accused of creating false excitement in investors to drive up the price of its coin by announcing several partnerships, the Tron organization has sealed some exciting collaborations and acquisition in the past.

Tron past partnerships/acquisition

Tron, a blockchain platform focused on building a decentralized web and infrastructure, started on the Ethereum blockchain but launched its main net on June 25, 2018. Since then the project has made bold moves even in the middle of the recent bear market.

The notable companies Tron partnered with in the first quarter of 2019 include Tether and CoinGate. In January, it announced that ABCC cryptocurrency exchange would be the first to list the tokens based on Tron’s TRC10 technical standard.

Last year, Tron partnered with Binance in a bid to facilitate blockchain adoption around the world. Tron’s CEO donated $3 million to Binance Charity Foundation to use the blockchain technology to help people in the least developed part of the world.

Tron had also acquired BitTorrent, the popular peer-to-peer file sharing service, and went on to have a successful Initial Exchange Offering recording $7.1M in less than 15 minutes in the first session of the sale.

There’s been some speculation about what form this partnership with Liverpool will take. Maybe Tron could build a decentralized live streaming service for Liverpool’s matches, a decentralized game or Liverpool could create its fan token on the Tron blockchain.

Some football clubs that have created a blockchain token in the past include the biggest club in the top division of France Paris Saint-Germain, Italian soccer club Juventus and one of Brazil’s oldest and biggest club Atletico Mineiro.

Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus had partnered with a blockchain platform Socios.com to launch the Fan Token Offering, which allows fans to vote on decisions such as choosing the club’s jersey color, stadium music, and logo.
