Digital Identities enabling real world Blockchain based smart contracting

++All Access Only++

Breakout Session

Pilot Partners


Topic Discussion

Aimed at Participants of big multinational corporations to get knowledge of Identity and find potential use case scenarios based on the practical execution experience of our startups.

Digitization is transforming the way how business is done. This pushes Daimler Mobility into a more competitive world not only facing our traditional competitors, but also the digital giants like Amazon, Google, Uber and etc. As a traditional service provider, we have to find future technology enabling us to connect and collaborate with more service providers to create our co-owned mutual Platform for business - and Blockchain takes us to that future. The Daimler Mobility Blockchain Factory is continuing to blaze the trail in building Blockchain-based business platforms. We have partnered with four startups: Ontology, Spherity, Riddle & Code and 51nodes to realize true end to end smart contracting between fleet operators and rental or mobility service providers. In joint development with these partners we have taken the Mobility Blockchain Platform to the next level and have added digital identities (DID) and Blockchain wallets for customers, companies and cars. By integrating this with our smart contracts and Distributed Ledger (DLT) these customers and companies can conduct fully automated fleet and rental business transactions. What we have built is essentially a shared marketplace for service delivery. We provide digital identities to man and machine and let our Distributed Ledger and the Blockchain smart contracts handle the end to end service delivery aspects needed to sign, bill and settle each transaction. This is a major step towards a true Internet and Economy of Things.
