Some cryptocurrencies are tackling mundane problems, but others are revolutionary, and are taking on the bleeding edge of technological developments. IOTA is one such project, designed specifically for the Internet of Things. It is unique and there’s no other project out there quite like it. If IOTA is successful it could very well become the transactional fuel that keeps millions on internet connected and enabled devices communicating and functioning properly.
ElaadNL, a firm focused on developed smart charging solutions has launched its first ever smart charging station. The Netherlands-based firm made the announcement via a company blog post introducing the smart charging station. The newly launched station is capable of machine to machine (M2M) communication over an IOTA network implementation. The charging station is part of the new ElaadNL test site which is based in Arnhems Buiten, a business park in the former KEMA site. The test contains numerous charging stations that have become ubiquitous in public areas all over the country.
