Mobility Open Blockchain Initiative
December 23, 2019 Bulletin
Happy Holidays from MOBI!

2019 was a big year for our community. In July, we released the first-ever standard for a Vehicle Identity on Blockchain. In addition to introducing new working groups, we also announced a Joint Proof of Concept for the VID with the world's largest automakers. And in November, we hosted our first colloquium at our home city -- MoCo Los Angeles (click to see the recap). 

This will be our final bulletin for the year. We are so excited for what the new year brings for our community!
