The Dutch Blockchain Coalition (DBC) is working with the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (IenW) and market parties on an exploration of the possibilities blockchain and decentralised technologies can offer in the mobility sector. The aim is to create a high-quality, safe, fair and sustainable digital mobility infrastructure for the future.
The potential of blockchain and decentralised technologies in the mobility sector were discussed during the Blockchain & Mobility Week in June 2021. The input and ideas from the sessions were collected together and used as the basis for constructing five use cases for bringing those ideas to life within the Dutch mobility system:
- Open Mobility Trust Network
- Ownership of personal data & Mobility
- Parking for shared cars
- Vehicle passports and EU supply chain legislation
- Seamless EV charging and Local Green Energy
Cooperating on a pilot project
An inventory is currently being made of parties who are interested in these use cases and would like to work on a pilot. The aim is to start up one or more pilot projects. The DBC and IenW are acting as facilitators and matchmakers for bringing these ideas to life, together with interested parties. The ministry and the DBC want to make international showcases of such projects.
We are looking for organisations who want to be in the vanguard and see the opportunities for working together on those use cases. This could generate interesting commercial opportunities.
This needs to be a joint effort and the organisations taking part will be expected to make investments both in kind and in funding. The exact scope, duration and funding for this will be agreed with all the participants during the intake phase.
