BMW Set to Leverage Blockchain Technology Solution for Supply Chain Management

BMW Set to Leverage Blockchain Technology Solution for Supply Chain Management

Major car manufacturer BMW has announced the planned roll-out of its blockchain-powered Supply Chain Management (SCM) solution. For starters, the German automobile heavyweight will leverage the solution with 10 of its suppliers beginning in 2020.

BMW to Adopt Blockchain for SCM and Traceability

BMW Group, the parent company of BMW announced the news of the supply chain solution roll-out via a press release issued on Tuesday (March 31, 2020). According to the press statement, the German automobile behemoth will launch its blockchain-based solution dubbed “PartChain” with 10 of its suppliers in 2020.

The group initially tested a beta version of the solution aimed at optimizing the traceability of automobile parts and essential raw material relevant to complex international supply chains.

Since its test days in 2019, the PartChain project has grown to include an industry-wide solution for secure data sharing by leveraging both blockchain and cloud technologies, per the announcement.

Andreas Wendt, a member of BMW AG’s Board of Management which is a subsidiary tasked with managing the Group’s purchasing and supplier networks, pointed out that 10 major suppliers have been chosen for the roll-out in 2020 with more suppliers to be added in coming years.

Regarding the blockchain solution itself, Wendt remarked:

“PartChain enables tamper-proof and consistently verifiable collection and transaction of data in our supply chain. This move is designed to take the digitalization of purchasing at the BMW Group to the next level. Our vision is to create an open platform that will allow data within supply chains to be exchanged and shared safely and anonymized across the industry.”

According to the press statement, PartChain leverages Cloud technologies from Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure as well as DLT to ensure the tracking of components between members of the supply chain. The solution also provides a minimal risk of data manipulation.

Blockchain Utilization in the Automobile Industry

In 2018, the BMW Group co-founded the Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative (MOBI) alongside other major car manufacturers such as IBM and Ford, to explore the power of blockchain to consolidating industry efforts geared towards solving supply chain issues. Wendt also expressed the groups intent to share the PartChain solution with members of the MOBI initiative.

Similarly, automobile giant Mercedes-Benz announced the launch of its pilot test back in February 2020. As reported by BTCManager, the company aimed at leveraging blockchain technology to track CO2 emissions across its cobalt supply chain.

Also, HashCash Consultant revealed a partnership with a consortium of car manufacturers back in November 2019. The partnership reportedly aimed at building a DLT-based platform designed to track minerals needed for battery construction.

OKCoin Gets License to Operate Crypto Exchange in Japan

OKCoin Gets License to Operate Crypto Exchange in Japan

OKCoin Japan, a subsidiary of OK Group, has obtained a license from one of Japan’s regulatory authorities to operate a crypto exchange in the country.  

OKCoin Ready to Launch Crypto Exchange in Japan

OKCoin announced the news of its license acquisition via a blog post on Medium on March 30, 2020. According to the announcement, OKCoin finalized its registration process with the Kanto Local Finance Bureau to operate as a digital currency exchange in Japan under the country’s Payment Services Act (PSA).

In addition to obtaining a license, the crypto exchange platform also boasts of a secure and robust AML and ‘customer risk profiling capabilities’, upgraded technologies for virtual currency transactions, among other improved services.

Furthermore, OKCoin said:

“The company has also developed and implemented proprietary AML/CFT technologies such as automated transaction filtering and monitoring systems as part of its effort to combat illicit activities in the crypto industry.”

Also, the Japanese crypto subsidiary has been laying the groundwork since its inception in 2017, to ensure full compliance with Japan’s PSA, administrative guidelines set by the Financial Services Agency (FSA), and self-regulatory rules by the Japan Virtual Currency Exchange Association (JVCEA).

Although the platform is yet to announce an official launch date, potential customers who wish to open an account with OKCoin Japan can pre-register on the platform’s website. The crypto exchange will offer support for the Japanese yen. OKCoin is also planning to create easy fiat onramp for Japanese traders to purchase cryptos like bitcoin, ether, ethereum classic, litecoin, and bitcoin cash.

As reported by BTCManager back in June 2019, OKCoin, as part of its plans to expand services across the globe, opened an office in Malta in addition to allowing customers outside the U.S. to withdraw and deposit euros.

Japan’s Evolving Crypto Regulatory Space

Japan’s crypto and blockchain technology landscape has continued to thrive due to the country’s emphasis on regulation rather than banning crypto commerce. The Financial Services Agency — Japan’s financial regulator, has been at the forefront of shaping the crypto regulatory policy for Japan with a focus on ensuring exchanges adhere to strict security measures to combat the menace of cybercriminals.

Following the $500 million Coincheck hack, the FSA has noticeably upped its policing of Japan’s crypto space with regular investigations into suspected security lapses. Exchanges in the country have even come together to form the Japanese Virtual Currency Exchange Association (JVCEA) — a self-regulatory body focused on ensuring compliance with FSA standards.

Earlier in March 2020, the JVCEA added U.S. crypto exchange giant Coinbase as a Class 2 member with some pundits claiming the move is a precursor for the platform obtaining a license to operate in the country.

Report: Binance Plots $400 Million Acquisition of CoinMarketCap

Report: Binance Plots $400 Million Acquisition of CoinMarketCap

Crypto exchange juggernaut Binance is reportedly close to sealing a $400 million deal to purchase cryptocurrency trading data platform CoinMarketCap.

Binance Acquisition Spree Continues

An unconfirmed report from Forbes says Binance is in negotiations with crypto data provider CoinMarketCap over a possible acquisition deal. Inside sources with knowledge of the proceedings say the crypto exchange giant is ready to fork out $400 million in cash and stocks to secure the purchase of CoinMarketCap.

According to Forbes, the deal could be finalized and officially announced before the end of the week, marking one of the most significant acquisitions in the crypto space. The conclusion of the deal could also confirm Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao’s statement from earlier in the year hinting at a few purchase deals in the pipeline.

Back in January, the Binance chief in his address to the company’s users said:

“We always have a number of strategic acquisition discussions in the works, a couple of them are major and will have a significant impact. We will announce it in due time.”

In 2019 alone, Binance went on an acquisition spree buying up three major companies in the crypto industry including Indian cryptocurrency trading startup WazirX and decentralized application (dApp) analytics platform DappReview.

CoinMarketCap is the industry leader in the provision of crypto trading market data but has come under some criticism for failing to filter out wash trading and spoofing. At the time, several reports declared that crypto trading volumes were exaggerated.

The crypto trading data provider has since taken some steps in response to the situation. Back in mid-2019, the company acquired Hashtag Capital in a move to improve its cryptocurrency pricing algorithm while warning exchanges that failed to provide mandatory data would lead to exclusion from its platform.

Expansion Still on the Cards for Crypto Trading Giant

News of the planned CoinMarketCap acquisition comes at a time when Binance is in the midst of several expansion activities. As previously reported by BTCManager, the company launched its Binance Card as part of efforts to improve retail adoption and make spending crypto for microtransactions a lot easier.

Since 2019, the exchange behemoth has been onboarding several national fiats, creating more robust onramps for crypto buying for its users across the globe. Back in February, Binance added the Hong Kong Dollar (HKD) to the list.

Apart from expansion on the trading front, Binance is also working towards enhancing blockchain research. Recently, Binance Academy announced the establishment of a blockchain research institute in Shanghai, China.
