IOTW Announces Strategic Partnerships with Consta Mobile & The California Wine Company Limited
IOTW, an IoT blockchain venture, has partnered up with Consta Mobile and The California Wine Company, furthering the adoption of its network and native cryptocurrency.
AnApp Blockchain Technologies Limited (“AnApp”), the IOTW blockchain developer, announces two key partnerships, with Consta Mobile, a telecommunications services and products supplier, and The California Wine Company Limited, a prominent Californian wine distributor for Thailand and other South Asian countries.
Both partnerships represent major milestones for the promotion and adoption of IOTW blockchain technology, where mobile devices adopt our Proof of Assignment micro-mining protocol and The California Wine Company Limited accepts our IOTW coins for their sales. This way, mobile users can essentially mine the IOTW coins and purchase wine with it - a tangible example of how the IOTW ecosystem works.
Cryptocurrency mining has traditionally been a resource-intensive process, requiring significant processing power and energy. As such it is now concentrated in the hands of a small number of professional players. The IOTW blockchain technology is a completely new architecture with an innovative consensus protocol called Proof of Assignment, which allows IoT devices, no matter how simple they are, to easily mine IOTW coins without the need for any hardware change. The IOTW blockchain is developed for the masses around the world.
Consta Mobile is committed to innovation in telecommunications, focusing particularly on developing a network for rural and remote areas to bridge the digital divide and promote socio-economic development.
The company is planning to sell their mobile devices in the emerging Indian market first, followed by other counties, and partnering with IOTW will allow Consta Mobile to integrate low-power mining functionality into mobile devices, whereby device owners will be able to mine IOTW coins on the go.
The California Wine Company Limited will be accepting IOTW coins as payment for products in their extensive wine collection. Given the fact that the company is, by far, the largest importer of California wines in Thailand, the partnership will further promote the IOTW ecosystem and accelerate its growth and mass adoption.
Commenting on the new partnerships, Mr. Frederick Leung, co-founder and CEO of AnApp said, "We are excited to be forming partnerships with Consta Mobile and The California Wine Company Limited. We are currently working on more partnerships with world-leading names and will be announcing them in the near future.
A collaboration with Consta Mobile is a strategic step for IOTW to penetrate the mobile devices market, implement our unique micro-mining solution and move towards mass deployment of our chain.
Similarly, The California Wine Company Limited’s acceptance of IOTW coins as payment is a major milestone for us in creating the IOTW ecosystem, and we believe our instant transaction capability will create the most efficient purchasing experience for The California Wine Company Limited’s customers.”
Mr. Madhu Bhandari, the Managing Director of Bramaas Holding Group (parent company of Consta Mobile), said, “Our mission at Consta Mobile is to introduce innovative products and services. We are dedicated to building a robust and secure state-of-the-art telecommunication network, providing seamless coverage with special focus on rural and remote areas for bridging the digital divide and thereby facilitate socio-economic development.
AnApp’s pioneering IoT blockchain solution is a great fit for our vision, allowing mobile devices to mine cryptocurrency (IOTW coins) - something that has been, up to now, not possible, nor profitable, in developing economies.”
Mr. Alan Lau, the Managing Director of The California Wine Company Limited, also shared his comments, “IOTW-enabled devices will be in many households in many countries soon. I see this as an opportunity for us to expand our market to different regions. Accepting IOTW creates a new channel for our wine sales, and given that the Silicon Valley in California is the capital of technological innovation, it makes sense for us to adopt new technology as well.”
