Open-source blockchain company Ontology has partnered with Daimler Mobility with claims that it will “transform” the driving experience around the world.
Daimler hosted a live event today in what is being described as a meeting of the most innovative minds in mobility solutions.
Daimler Mobility AG’s Blockchain Factory and Ontology have joined forces to develop MoveX, a first-of-its-kind blockchain-based mobility platform for the automotive and mobility industry.
It will utilise Ontology’s decentralised identity framework, ONT ID, to empower user roaming, bundling and sharing.
The first product on the MoveX platform will be Welcome Home, which plans to solves the trade-off for users who want to have highly personalised experiences and diverse service integrations, while also preserving their data privacy and control.
We are proud to partner with @Daimler Mobility by integrating our #ONTID on #MoveX, offering inherent interoperability & personalized in-car experiences, a perfect example of #blockchain entering the mainstream. Highway to the future!🛣️ $ONT #DeID 🙌🙌https://t.co/XwYjCJytkr

The Welcome Home solution will not only be applicable to in-car experiences, but to any smart device, as they become increasingly intelligent, connected, and data-rich.
Commenting on the partnership, Andy Ji, Co-founder of Ontology said: “In choosing to partner with Ontology, Daimler Mobility has demonstrated its commitment to innovation and to leveraging advanced emerging technologies that deliver the best possible experience for drivers around the world.
“Our decentralised identity solutions can offer drivers a range of benefits that focus on security, verification, and trusted data management.”
The news comes as Ontology continues to strengthen ties with German enterprise and moves forward with plans to open an office in Berlin.
Harry Behrens, Head of The Daimler Mobility AG Blockchain Factory, added: “Welcome Home combines mobility with social networking. By using Ontology’s unique framework for DID and highly secure data access we have combined usability with the highest standards for data sovereignty and privacy.”
