Blockchain technology is driving a broader trend towards securing digital identities of people, organizations, and physical objects. Machines capable of cryptographically-secured transactions can prevent hacking, data breaches, and more of the problems that plague digital economies today. Today's launch of the common registration protocol brings industry and commerce legacy systems one step closer to secure interactions with cryptographic networks. This will fundamentally change the approaches to computing that underpin today's IoT device identities, sensor data, and business logic. In support of the protocol, members of the group are moving forward with several proof of concept projects at the intersection of blockchain and IoT. Not only does this demonstrate the broader commercial and industrial potential of this technology, it supports the blockchain and IoT ecosystems and advances progress in these sectors. Among these projects, Cisco is exploring using the protocol to register device identities and associated data, whereas Bosch has completed work to register automobile odometer readings on the blockchain to prevent fraud. Startups are also working towards POCs. Chronicled is completing a POC wherein pharmaceutical serializations and temperature tracking data are logged on the blockchain and Skuchain is using the technology, along with smart contracts, to support supply chain functions and efficacy in the aerospace industry. Stephan Tual, COO at Slock.it, a German-based technology company that recently raised a $2M seed round said, "We are very excited to support the linkage of IoT technologies and blockchain technologies, and look forward to building many use cases with clients and partners." Maurizio Greco, CTO of Chronicled said, "In the days of the railroad industry, there was a need to create standard dimensions for the gauge of the rail and width between the rails.  Similarly, in the IoT and blockchain space, by creating standards around basic functions, such as registering cryptographic public keys to blockchain systems for 'thing' identity verification, we can set a strong foundation for the growth of this exciting new industry."

VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 3, 2017 / CoinQx Exchange LIMITED, a wholly owned subsidiary of FIRST BITCOIN CAPITAL CORP (OTC:BITCF or "Company", "We", "Us" or "Our") through its CEO filed for patent protection this week in order to move trillions of travel points into the cryptocurrency world. $48 Billion worth of points and airline miles are classified as unredeemed. Already trillions of reward points have been issued and redeemed worldwide for all industries. In order to capitalize on this booming industry, our CEO, Greg Rubin, an inventor with several patents approved by the USPTO has filed on our behalf a provisional patent that is designed to grant protection from competitors placing rewards points on a blockchain. We have already issued billions of rewards points on the bitcoin blockchain to be redeemed by the future clients of a new travel agency that First Bitcoin is rolling out this month via www.BitClassTravel.com What makes our reward points unique is that they can be bought and sold in cryptocurrency markets. We anticipate that our competitors will find their travel agencies accepting our rewards tokens to compete. A secondary market could emerge for this new form of reward points as digital currencies. Complete details of the usages and crypto miles issued will soon be found at http://AIRmilesQX.com In addition to being the first public in the blockchain space, First Bitcoin has distinguished itself as a crypto leader capable of moving at lightning speed to roll out new endeavors so much so that our crypto reward tokens are already tradeable as altcoins on the OMNIDEX against some of the leading cryptocurrencies such as Tether, MaidSafeCoin, Omni, including all altcoins our subsidiary has issued on the Bitcoin Blockchain , to date. Many of these new mileage coins will be tradeable on our subsidiary cryptocurrency exchange, CoinQX.com, against more than 100 crypto and fiat currencies, including Bitcoin. A complete list and details of these reward tokens for airline miles will be released in an upcoming news release covering 100 of the largest airlines and top hotel chains. Many airlines offer frequent-flyer loyalty programs to encourage customers to accumulate "miles" which airline customers can redeem to purchase air travel or other rewards. Points, or miles earned though those programs are based on complex rules, like class of fare, distance, season or the amount paid. There are also many other ways to earn points. For example, credit card issuers partner with airlines and award loyalty points or miles based on customer's credit card usage. Points can be redeemed for air travel, ticket upgrades, booking hotels, car rentals, magazine subscriptions etc. Frequent-flyer program points are in essence a type of virtual currency, but unfortunately it was a one way process –people could purchase points with national currencies, but were not able to exchange back into those currencies. Airline miles programs go back to the early 70's when United Airlines began to reward loyal customers with points that could be accumulated and later could be used to pay for air travel. Their programs have evolved over the last 20 years, but it is not easy to use those programs.When travelers actually try to book a flight, they encounter major hurdles, like-blackout dates (days when award seats are limited or unavailable). Every airline program has its own policies, procedures, restrictions, etc. Also airlines and credit card issuers are constantly changing the rules and policies. Several Airlines, for example, recently increased the minimum number of miles needed to book some of their flights. Research published by COLLOQUY, a leading provider of loyalty marketing research in 2015 indicates that U.S. consumers hold 3.3 billion memberships in customer loyalty programs, a 26% increase over the number of memberships reported in COLLOQUY's prior census study in 2013. The 2015 Census shows that specialty store loyalty memberships now total 434 million, exceeding airline frequent flyer memberships (356 million) for the first time, placing second only to credit card reward programs, which account for 578 million memberships. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation's Bureau of Transportation Statistics, year over year air travel increased by 5.5% from 2015 to 2016. COLLOQUY survey found that a little more than half of Americans – 55% – have taken a flight for business or leisure purposes in the past two years. And three-fourths of respondents, 75%, said their most recent flight was within the past six months. Another noteworthy statistic is that 60% of frequent traveler miles issued today are not earned but instead purchased. Points accumulating in loyalty programs globally are considered by some as real currencies with increasing value that have attracted the attention of criminals, per Barry Kirk, vice president of Loyalty Solutions for Maritz Motivation Solutions. In the US alone, 3.3 billion loyalty program memberships have stored points and miles worth an estimated $48 billion, according to the Gartner Group. BLOCKCHAIN will CHANGE customer loyalty programs forever by giving more control to rewards owners and reducing fraud through the transparency of blockchain technologies. First Bitcoin Capital Corp trading on the OTC Markets as BITCF has developed a unique Blockchain based airline miles platform, allowing people to buy/exchange/trade/transfer miles without any restrictions, blackout days or other cumbersome rules that airlines impose on their programs. The following statistics may be of interest to our loyal shareholders: First Bitcoin Capital is engaged in developing digital currencies, proprietary Blockchain technologies, and the digital currency exchange- www.CoinQX.com. We see this step as a tremendous opportunity to create further shareholder value by leveraging management's experience in developing and managing complex Blockchain technologies, developing new types of digital assets. Being the first publicly-traded cryptocurrency and blockchain-centered company (with shares both traded in the US OTC Markets as [BITCF] and as [BIT] in crypto exchanges) we want to provide our shareholders with diversified exposure to digital cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies.

« Tritium trials Veefil 50 kW fast chargers in China in joint venture with Oxford University Innovation | Main | DOE: gasoline direct injection engine technology showing very rapid adoption; 48.5% market share after 9 years » The Toyota Research Institute (TRI) is exploring blockchain and distributed ledger technology (BC/DL) (earlier post) for use in the development of a new mobility ecosystem that could accelerate development of autonomous driving technology. TRI is collaborating with the MIT Media Lab (MIT ML) and other industry partners to foster a digital environment in which users—both businesses and consumers—may securely share driving and autonomous vehicle testing data, manage ride-share and car-share transactions and store vehicle usage information that could be used in the setting of insurance rates. Blockchain technology sends information over a network of independent computers (distributed ledger), intended to ensure that the transaction is secure and ownership rights over the data/property are protected. Blockchain originally underpinned Bitcoin, but has gained traction as a means to record and track the movement of assets. TRI believes blockchain may create transparency and trust among users, reduce risk of fraud and reduction or elimination of transaction costs, such as fees or surcharges applied by third party institutions. Hundreds of billions of miles of human driving data may be needed to develop safe and reliable autonomous vehicles. Blockchain s and distributed ledgers may enable pooling data from vehicle owners, fleet managers, and manufacturers to shorten the time for reaching this goal, thereby bringing forward the safety, efficiency and convenience benefits of autonomous driving technology. —Chris Ballinger, director of mobility services and chief financial officer at TRI Through an open-source approach to software tools, TRI is creating a user consortium and hopes to stimulate more rapid adoption of blockchain by other companies developing autonomous vehicles and providing mobility services. TRI is inviting current and future partners to collaborate on further development of BC/DL technology applications in vehicle data and services. TRI is working with several industry partners in addition to MIT ML to develop applications and proofs of concept for three areas of the new mobility ecosystem: driving/testing data sharing, car/ride share transactions and usage-based insurance. Driving/Testing Data Sharing: Blockchain technology may allow companies and individuals to securely share and monetize their driving information and access the data contributed by others in a secure marketplace. This approach builds on a similar blockchain initiative to create digital property rights in the music industry, the Open Music Initiative. Modern vehicles are increasingly aware of their environment through onboard sensors and are increasingly connected to the cloud, roadway infrastructure and other vehicles, all of which are generating massive amounts of valuable data. BC/DL may create an opportunity to share driving and autonomous testing data in an environment that preserves ownership of the data by the creator. Car/Ride Share Transactions: Tools based on BC/DL have the potential to empower vehicle owners to monetize their asset by selling rides, cargo space or even the use of the vehicle itself. The blockchain can store data about the vehicle’s usage and information about vehicle owners, drivers and passengers. This profile information can help validate a “smart contract” between two parties plus manage payment of services between them without need of a financial intermediary, thereby saving transaction surcharges. The system may also provide connectivity to vehicle functions for remote locking/unlocking doors and engine startup/shut off. Usage-Based Insurance: The blockchain can also be used for vehicle owners to save money on their insurance rates. By allowing the vehicle’s sensors to collect driving data and store it in a blockchain, vehicle owners may be eligible to further lower their insurance costs by giving their insurance companies increased transparency to reduce fraud plus granting them access to driving data to measure safe driving habits. TRI’s partners include: Berlin-based BigchainDB, which is building the data exchange for sharing driving and autonomous vehicle testing data; Oaken Innovations, based in Dallas and Toronto, is developing an application for P2P car sharing, vehicle access and payments with a newly created mobility token; Commuterz, a startup from Israel, is working with TRI on a P2P carpooling solution; Gem, from Los Angeles, is working with Toyota Insurance Management Solutions (TIMS)—Toyota’s joint venture telematics car insurance company—and Aioi Nissay Dowa Insurance Services on the usage-based insurance platform. Each partner has expertise in its specific market or area of research. TRI is also working with Toyota Financial Services (TFS) in the United States for development of related financial tools. TRI and its partners announced the new research thread at Consensus 2017, a leading blockchain technology summit in New York.
