Bosch is a 131-year-old company, yet it’s on the cutting edge of crypto and IOTA’s tangle-style platform. Clearly, the firm desires to go deeper into data rather than stick to its old business model and profit from hardware. Selling data is the future and Bosch views IOTA and autonomous cars as a great way to collect micropayments and information. Add this to the fact the city of Taipai, South Korea is set to use IOTA to turn the city into an app-driven smart city. Its obvious IOTA is really making some waves. IOTA’s data marketplace has been in the making since 2015. Around the same time, IBM spent $2 billion to acquire the Weather Company. The sole reason for the purchase was to get access to data.
