Daimler South East Asia will build a blockchain-based data sharing network, a division of the Mercedes-Benz Group, on the Ethereum Layer-2 scaling solution Polygon.
The decision to use Polygon furthers Polygon’s global growth in various industries.
Acentrik, a new data-sharing platform from Daimler South East Asia, will let businesses purchase and sell information in a decentralized setting.
The blockchain network will also be utilized to trade data from various businesses, like insurance data, clinical trials, and many others, even though it is a Mercedes-Benz affiliate product.
Additionally, unlike most other decentralized data systems of a similar nature, Acentrik’s data won’t be kept on a blockchain. Instead, each data set on the blockchain will be represented by a non-fungible token (NFT). Specific metadata will be stored on each of the NFTs.
MATIC Gets a Boost From Mercedes-Benz
Data exchanges will occur on the Polygon & Ethereum Rinkeby testnets, per sources from Daimler South East Asia. Additionally, companies will be required to utilize stablecoins to make a payment to safeguard the monetary worth of data.
However, users will also be obliged to pay gas fees using the MATIC token, the native token of Polygon, as the transactions must be performed on that platform.
The data will be available on AWS 53 or IPFS once a user has made all the required payments.
Sandeep Nailwal, the founder of Polygon, praised the feet in a tweet when discussing the progress and stated:
“Mercedes Benz @MercedesBenz is the latest brand to be #PoweredByPolygon”
Mercedes Benz @MercedesBenz is the latest brand to be #PoweredByPolygon
