中国吉利(Geely)和协和(Concordium)宣布成立一家合资企业,为汽车和其他商业领域开发区块链商业模式和应用程序。除了自己的汽车品牌,吉利自2010年起就拥有了沃尔沃,其所有者李书福是戴姆勒的最大股东(9.7%),吉利还与梅塞德斯成立了一家合资公司,生产smart汽车品牌。它还与百度成立了一家电动汽车合资企业,拥有莲花(Lotus)等品牌。


康康的首席执行官也是吉利旗下沃尔沃的副主席。我们很好奇是谁资助了瑞士协和基金会,但在发表时没有收到回复。


在获得监管部门批准后,预计这家合资公司将于今年成立,吉利将持有80%的股份。吉利的另一家公司——中国的“天才大师”(Genius & Guru),投资金融科技和金融机构,将在中国合作打造用例。


浙江吉利控股首席执行官李东辉表示,其目标是构建一个生态系统,“降低信任成本,为企业提供平台,提供他们需要的工具,共同开发基于区块链的应用程序,并在‘价值互联网’中成长”。


康康迪公司正准备在今年第二季度推出未经公众许可的区块链。它将自己定位为企业友好型区块链。尽管它是未经许可的,但它包含了一个身份层,所有参与者(无论是组织还是个人)都将拥有一个身份。虽然交易仍可保密,但来自政府部门的要求将导致身份被披露。


它还声称提供透明性和隐私性。它使用零知识证明加密技术来加密数据,并且只需要知道要显示的方面。其他功能包括权益证明、最终交易和它自己的货币GTU。


这项技术是在丹麦奥胡斯大学计算机科学系建立了Concordium区块链研究中心后开发出来的。Concordium公司的首席技术官是Torben Pryds Pedersen,一位因对Pedersen着迷而闻名的密码学家。


与此同时,沃尔沃也参与了区块链项目,但主要是为了追溯符合道德标准的矿物。戴姆勒的区块链计划范围更广。其中最新颖的是与Boerse Stuttgart的合作,探索使用公共代币来资助工业机械。

 

 A joint venture was announced between China’s Geely and Concordium  to develop blockchain business models and applications for the automotive and other business sectors. Apart from its own auto brand, Geely has owned Volvo since 2010, its owner Li Shufu is the largest shareholder in Daimler (9.7%), and it has a joint venture with Mercedes for its smart car brand. It also has an electric car joint venture with Baidu and owns Lotus and other brands.

The CEO of Concordium is also the deputy chairperson of Volvo, which Geely owns. We were curious about who funded the Swiss Concordium Foundation but did not receive a response at the time of publication.

The joint venture company is expected to be incorporated this year subject to regulatory approvals and with Geely owning an 80% stake. Another Geely company, China’s Genius & Guru, which invests in fintechs and financial institutions, will partner to build out use cases in China.

Daniel Donghui Li, CEO of Zhejiang Geely Holdings, said the aim is to build an ecosystem “to reduce the cost of trust and provide companies with access to a platform with the tools they need to develop blockchain-based applications together and grow in the ‘Internet of Value'”.

Concordium is getting ready to launch its public permissionless blockchain in the second quarter of this year. It positions itself as an enterprise-friendly blockchain. Although it’s permissionless, it incorporates an identity layer, and all participants, whether organizations or individuals, will have an identity. While transactions can remain private, requests from government authorities will result in identities being revealed.

It also claims to offer transparency but privacy. It uses Zero-Knowledge Proof cryptography to enable data to be encrypted and only the need to know aspects to be revealed. Other features include Proof of Stake, final transactions, and its own coin, the GTU.

The technology was developed in Denmark after it set up the Concordium Blockchain Research Center at Aarhus University’s Department of Computer Science. Concordium’s CTO is Torben Pryds Pedersen, the cryptographer know for his Pedersen commitments.

Meanwhile, Volvo has been involved in blockchain projects, but mainly for traceability of ethically sourced minerals. Daimler has a broader range of blockchain initiatives. One of the most novel is a collaboration with Boerse Stuttgart to explore using public tokens to fund industrial machinery.
