With the birth of cryptocurrencies, the blockchain technology started to develop fastly.
Now, the next company is trying to implement blockchain technology into its processes. How will it work? We shall see.
Volkswagen tries its hand
A few days ago, Volkswagen AG, a German car company, released news about testing blockchain systems, explaining that they see big potential for “maintenance, logistics, self-driving vehicles, and specialized solutions such as tamper-proof odometers.” Volkswagen Group has also informed its followers on Twitter about further work writing that they try to “bring blockchain systems to the road.”
Bringing #blockchain systems to the road: We’re working full steam ahead on making super-safe #cryptosystems available to our customers. For filling the tank, unlocking your car – and all kinds of other possibilities: #bitcoin #ethereum #iota

Leaders of the project
Two people who are the face of blockchain project in Volkswagen are Benjamin Sinram and Nicolai Bartkowiak. As Sinram admitted, they built up a network of 300 employees to exchange ideas on this topic.
“Our contacts among the different brands enable us to work very efficiently. The atmosphere is open, and we’re happy to include interested individuals from any department,” says Sinram.
It is not the first time when the Volkswagen Group shows some interest in using blockchain technology. Last month, we informed that Volkswagen had filled new patent application for a system which will allow vehicles to communicate with one another through a network based on blockchain technology.
