In this episode of Untangled we are talking to Dan Simerman, the new Head of Financial Relations in the IOTA Foundation and Frank Zhou, founder & CEO of Zeux, a banking and payment app that recently partnered with IOTA. We talked about why tokens are part of distributed ledger technologies, the future use of cryptocurrencies and what it will take for cryptocurrencies to reach mainstream adoption.
In the thirteenth episode of Untangled we are exploring a use case of platooning. Jonas Brügmann, Nicolas Ruhland and Matthias Babel from the Fraunhofer Blockchain Lab of the Bayreuth University has developed a business model for vehicles to organise themselves in a platoon. Only the leader of the platoon will be controlled by a person, while the rest of the vehicles are driving autonomously. By using the Tangle, the platoon leader can get compensated in real-time for the leading efforts. Listen to the episode here to learn more.
