The South Korean government intends to create a digital trade foundation and lower trade costs with blockchain technology, a move introduced under the country's Development Plan for Digital Trade.
Blockchain, big data and AI will be used to digitize the whole Korean trade finance ecosystem by 2021, forging a "digital trading platform that can be easily and conveniently used in all stages of export, such as contracts, customs and logistics".
Environmental benefits 🏔️
The Ford Motor Company is eyeing blockchain technology and geofencing to accurately track the "green miles" driven by its energy-efficient automobiles. 🚙
It is broadening its European plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) test project to Colonge, Germany, and will record all metadata on the blockchain to possibly maximize its PHEV vehicle fleets' environmental benefits. 🇩🇪
The blockchain technology tested in Colonge "enables secure, tamper-proof tracking and logging of vehicle emissions records, which makes it ideal for the PHEV pilot".
First of its kind 👏
Crypto exchange Binance has partnered with local Swiss startup Amun to establish a dedicated exchange-traded product (ETF) for Binance Coin (BNB) on the SIX Exchange, a Swiss Stock Exchange.
The investment tool features physically-backed contracts, and is the first for Binance's in-house cryptocurrency token BNB, with possible greater options for traders in the future. 💯
Changpeng Zhao, Binance CEO, stated that the partnership "will provide investors with a new and regulated asset class with a unique dimension to utility tokens, making them more accessible and reliable through a traditional financial infrastructure".
A method of trial-and-error, in which automated software generates and tries a large number of possible combinations in order to crack a code or key.
