IOTA Just Partnered With The City Austin, TX, To Improve Their Transportation System – Possible Adoption Spread Across The Country

ATX, the official transportation body of Austin, Texas, has announced that it is partnering with the IOTA project with the intention of bringing innovation to the mobility industry in the state capital, which has a population of roughly 1 million.

IOTA co-founder, Dominik Schiener, attended a special event at the University of Austin, Texas, where the announcement was made.

Not many details have been offered, but it speaks volumes about IOTA’s potential that several major entities are considering employing the project’s Tangle for mobility initiatives.

IOTA has been making great strides in the automobile industry, a space that it’s ledger is particularly suited for. The project recently announced that Jaguar was testing the IOTA network and would be launching a smart wallet in its cars that would reward users for being sharing data.

It is also a member of the Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative (MOBI), which counts BMW, Ford,General Motors, Renault and several others as members.

Should efforts within Austin work well, it would not be a surprise to see IOTA spread to other cities as well.

    Awesome, I live in Austin and traffic sucks, IOTA is promising and really interesting compared to all the other cryptos, not saying there aren’t other good ones though.
