Wednesday 11 September 2019 | 15:26 CET | News

Deutsche Telekom said it will be testing Xride, a blockchain based e-mobility system, over a period of four weeks between September and October, at its headquarters in Bonn.  

Xride is powered by a blockchain operating stack called ståx, developed by T-Labs. Stax supports the creation of decentralized and secure IoT infrastructures that connect producers and consumers, and enable safe data sharing. It supports identity management, data verification and storage, payments, and charging, John Calian, Senior Vice President and Head of T-Labs said. It also connects blockchain technologies together into one operating stack and makes it easily manageable between multiple enterprises.  

The partners of Deutsche Telekom during the pilot phase are Riddle&Code, Bundesdruckerei and Giesecke+Devrient Mobile Security, among others. Employees at the Deutsche Telekom headquarter will test the decentralized e-mobility system with a fleet of scooters.
