Automotive supplier Continental launches app to monetize car user information using blockchain technology

According to Cointelegraph, automotive supplier Continental launched the app Earn As You Drive, which uses blockchain technology to monetize car user information. The application was created in collaboration with Continental, technology company Hewlett Packard Enterprise and open source network provider Crossbar.io, allowing drivers to choose to share street parking information through vehicle sensors to earn digital currency. The data is shared by the manufacturer, who then sends the data to a third-party parking service. The application relies on Continental's blockchain-based data monetization platform (DMP).
