Lasse Meholm’s Comment
The Head of Distributed Ledger Tech (DLT) at DNB – Lasse Meholm said: “As Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) payment and communication for microservices seem to intensify in the future, they think engaging in a Blockchain-based technology such as IOTA gives them the know-how and valuable experience on future business models and revenue streams.”
