BMW Group Asia, Intel Corporation and Nielsen are reportedly the three important new strategic partners of the Tribe Accelerator and its project to use the blockchain for smart cities, with the main purpose of knowledge sharing.
Tribe Accelerator is a blockchain accelerator supported by the Singapore government that is part of Trive Ventures, a venture capital company focused on Southeast Asia.
BMW Group Asia will be involved as an innovator in the mobility sector. It will, therefore, be called to share masterclasses and mentoring sessions, as well as all best practices in the field, so as to share how it approaches, integrates and implements new technologies and blockchain solutions in its business understood as mass market.
Intel Corporation is more dedicated to the practical use of blockchain and technological solutions which improve the current standard. Even Intel will be called to transmit everything through corporate and technical mentoring.
Lastly, Nielsen will provide a sandbox to provide participants with a safe and controlled environment to test new blockchain technologies and accelerate the adoption of their new solutions. The aim is to create common standards and application programming interfaces as well as explore blockchain use cases.
Tribe Accelerator’s managing partner, Ryan Chew, said:
“We are glad that our incoming partners are fully supportive of the work we are doing, the ecosystem we are building, and are sharing their resources to help us achieve this vision”.
BMW supports the blockchain
It seems that BMW wants to be a pioneer in the blockchain field, as it is always present in all the partnerships that promote its use.
Last year BMW presented its first blockchain accelerator project and, more recently, other news involved the automotive giant. Just last month, in fact, BMW hosted the first European MOBI meeting dedicated to blockchain technology.
