Med Vert Ida Faldbakken

Ida Faldbakken talks to IOTA Foundation's Wilfried Pimenta de Miranda, about IOTA, blockchain, the industry 4.0 revolution and how this gives the opportunity for new business models in this episode of #LØRN. He states how dedicated IOTA is to enable industrial value creation, and also talks about the mix up associated with DLT and blockchain to Bitcoin. Wilfried Pimenta de Miranda is Business Development Director at IOTA, a global Foundation developing a DLT / Blockchain protocol for the digital economy and the future of automation. Prior to his joining IOTA in 2016, he worked in strategy-M&A, business and corporate development for enterprises and startups in the energy, cleantech and infrastructure engineering sectors. Pioneering the offshore wind industry in the early 2000’s, he is now working at the forefront of the Internet-of-Things era, engaging a wide ecosystem of multinationals and public sector enterprises to address Digital Trust challenges ahead and unleash a new wave of value creation and data driven business models.

What is the most important thing you do at your work?
We develop for and together with the industry, an open source distributed ledger technology beyond conventional blockchain.  It is aimed serving as backbone for the Internet of things economy.

What are the central concepts in your tech?
Blockchain is only one type of distributed ledger technologies and is a very hyped term. The EU commission now understands this and is changing its wording accordingly.

Why is it exciting?
The industry 4.0 revolution provides a great opportunity for value creation. We extend this opportunity through the Internet of things economy, where billions of devices will share securely information and be able to trade with one another in a seamless fashion. Countless new business models are possible, which we explore together in a growing ecosystem of innovators and organizations.

What do you think are the relevant controversies?
IOTA is entirely dedicated to enabling industrial value creation. Without the involvement of industry, we would not exist.  The drivers are very solid around IoT, yet many people, including leaders, mix up everything associated with DLT and blockchain to Bitcoin. The tech is different, its purpose its completely different and its ecosystem is of course completely different.

Your favorite project?
IOTA Data marketplace.

Your other favourite examples, internationally and nationally?
Over-the-air software updates with Volkswagen and seamless smart charger by ElaadNL/Enexis.

What do we do particularly well in Norway or in your country?
Norway is an awesome testbed. Highly digital and high willingness to pay and living lab. We’re just pretty bad at marketing this and in general we do not see future gains as problems worth solving which innovation depends on.

A favourite future quote?
Blockchain is a buzzword, talk about DLT.

Dette er IOTA Foundation

IOTA Foundation is a non-profit foundation developing next generation protocols for the connected world. IOTA is an open-source distributed ledger and cryptocurrency designed for the Internet of things. It uses a directed acyclic graph to store transactions on its ledger, motivated by a potentially higher scalability over blockchain-based distributed ledgers.

Refleksjon

Iota, med sin "smarte delingsøkonomi" spår at vi i fremtiden kanskje ikke vil kjøpe våre egne biler, men i stedet vil vi kjøpe våre egne biler men isteden kjøpe biler i fellesskap. Hvilke posetive og negative innvirkninger kan dette ha på samfunnet?
