"There have never been more exciting mobility use cases around
blockchain, and MOBI's mission epitomizes what the future
of blockchain
is all about. Their members are known for both
innovation and accelerating the adoption of new transportation
technology, which is exactly why we joined their cutting-edge
consortium," said Markus Levin, XYO's Co-founder. "We look
forward to playing an active role in deciding the standards of the
future."

XYO Network uses crypto-location technology that not only protects
privacy, it provides greater accuracy of where objects are both in
relation to other objects, and where they are on the planet. Possible
use-cases with MOBI
could include driverless cars that use the XYO Network to "see" each
other, or vehicles that use XYO data to navigate traffic at busy
intersections. With its next generation of GPS functionality, the XYO
Network can power everything from automated parking payments to smart
contracts to any number of mobility applications.

Founded in May, MOBI is working with top global partners on creating a
secure, commerce-focused mobility ecosystem used for trusted vehicle
identity and tracking, carbon pricing, usage-based insurance, and more.

"Multi-party cooperation is critical to the new era of blockchain
development," added Levin. "We look forward to being part of the
decision-making process as we come together to address common industry
and technology challenges, create solutions that scale, and
collaboratively speed up the adoption of blockchain technology in the
transportation world."
