At the CEBIT in 2018, the German car introduced mobile manufacturer, Volkswagen, together with the Blockchain Startup IOTA a new Proof-of-Concept. It’s about the use of the Tangle for secure software transfer. We see here the future of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT)?

So Johann Jungwirth, Chief Digital Officer of the Volkswagen group met, to the IOTA Team and acts as the Supervisory Board.

IOTA course is still unimpressed
