Vechain has recently partnered with BMW to develop an auto security platform, which will keep vehicles free from forgery. The partnership will launch a blockchain-powered app (dApp) dubbed “VerifyCar” to collect vehicle data such as mileage, repairs and additional services. The dApp will run on the VeChainThor blockchain and will keep the data secure and untampered.
BMW noted that VerifyCar users will have more control over the collected data.
By accessing the app, the user decides who he would like to pass on which data, e.g. a workshop or a potential buyer. The recipients can compare the data with the ‘digital fingerprints’ or reference stamps on the VeChain blockchain. If clear data and the reference on the blockchain match, the recipient knows that the data is authentic.
BMW also noted that data pertaining to aspects like mileage will be collected in real-time and stored on VeChain with the help of the automobile company's hardware.
The automobile giants added that car owners who try to modify a vehicle's mileage will get exposed as local data would not match the information saved on the blockchain. VerifyCar will also protect users from sellers who deliberately manipulate data related to mileage and other factors to get a better price.
