Honda und General Motors haben gemeinsam ein Projekt gestartet, wie die Eigentümer von Elektrofahrzeugen mit Hilfe der Blockchain und Smart Grids Geld verdienen können.
The partners want to develop ways to facilitate the retrieval of information, such as data that is exchanged between power grids and electric vehicles. Down the road, EV owners could earn fees by storing power in car batteries and exchanging it with the grid. This could end up giving EV owners an advantage as their vehicles become revenue streams. The project will be conducted under the Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative (MOBI), which lists both Honda and GM among its community members. MOBI aims to use “blockchain and related technologies to make mobility safer, greener, cheaper and more accessible.” While the study will start this month, Nikkei says other partners could join later. It’s worth noting that among automakers, BMW, Ford, Renault, and Faraday Future are all listed as other MOBI members.
