SEAT has recently joined the Alastria infrastructure, the first semi-public multisectorial consortium which aims to provide a venue for digital cooperation in an independent, neutral network where blockchain technology-based products and services are developed. This new move makes SEAT the first car manufacturer to join the network, which has over 70 major businesses and institutions. The aim of this move is to further progress the development of blockchain technology, and encourage synergies with other participating companies.
Blockchain technology has been around since 2009 and represents an evolution with respect to the networked communications we know today. Accessibility to information which is instantaneous can often lead to unreliable data, therefore the aim of this technology is to generate an exchange of goods and services without the need to include third parties, enhancing procedural security.
