By Ken Briodagh July 30, 2018

Cyber Physical Chain (CPChain), the full-scale decentralized data infrastructure provider for IoT systems, recently announced that it has partnered with Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative (MOBI), a nonprofit organization that works with companies like BMW, Ford and General Motors, to improve the auto industry by promoting standards and accelerating adoption of blockchain and related technologies. In conjunction with the partnership announcement, CPChain has announced that it is now listed on KuCoin, an international blockchain assets exchange.

“With the recent advancements in connected and autonomous vehicles, there is a clear need for technology that can ensure the various technologies can safely and efficiently interact with another," said Dr. Long Chengnian, CEO, CPChain. "This is where blockchain and its immutable records have proven to be a viable solutions. We're thrilled to partner with MOBI to help create and accelerate adoption of blockchain in the automotive industry. We're also thrilled to announce that CPChain is now listed on KuCoin, the fifth exchange on which we are listed."

MOBI, which was formed in May of this year, is actively working with companies accounting for over 70 percent of global vehicle production in terms of market share. MOBI and partners, including, BMW, Bosch, Ford, General Motors, Groupe Renault, ZF, Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance Services USA and others seek to foster an ecosystem where businesses and consumers have security and sovereignty over their driving data. Through an open-source approach to blockchain software tools and standards, the MOBI consortium hopes to stimulate more rapid and scalable adoption of the technology by other companies developing autonomous vehicle and mobility services.

CPChain, which is also listed on BiBox, ForkDElta, TIDEX and IDEX, recently debuted PDash, a Parallel Distributed Architecture for Data Storage and Sharing. The solution serves to improve efficiency, security, privacy and cost associated with the current Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure. At its core, the platform incentivizes users to share information and assure the quality of data listed in the marketplace without the need to enlist costly, third-party support from data miners, which is in line with MOBI's mission.

CPChain has made strides within the industry, closing $30 million via a private sale in less than 48 hours and garnering attention and support from investments and partners such as the Trusted IOT Alliance (TIOTA), Qtum, Metaverse, High Performance Blockchain (HPB) and VeChain. Fully backed by an international team with experience in IoT, finance, security and commercial operations, CPChain is led by Dr. Long Chengnian, Founder and CEO of CPChain and Dr. Zhao Bin, Co-Founder, who has secured three patents on IoT inventions.
