Berlin, 20.03.2018

Two strong partners are combining their expertise. Advanced Blockchain AG (ISIN DE000A0M93V6) and DMG MORI AG (ISIN DE0005878003) want to accelerate development of innovative digitisation solutions. The aim of the partnership is to apply Distributed Ledger Technology to real world industries. The cooperation is open to other partners.

A distributed ledger is a decentralised database that allows users of a network to store and share information. As opposed to centrally managed databases, in DLT (an umbrella term describing technologies such as blockchain) there is no need for an intermediary or third party to create the entries or verify them.

Both companies have identified a number of potential applications for DLT. A first pilot project has already been initiated. Further projects, which may involve other industrial partners, will follow.

Michael Geike, CEO of Advanced Blockchain AG expressed his satisfaction with the deal, saying;

“With this cooperation we have created a great basis for applying Distributed Ledger Technology in this industry. The application possibilities of the technology are many — and will both change traditional business models, and make entirely new ones possible.’’

Mechanical engineering in particular is ripe for industrial application of DLT — especially in the documentation, certification and leasing areas.

DMG MORI considers digitisation and automation to be important fields for the future, along with Additive Manufacturing, Technology Excellence and DMG MORI Qualified Products.

Advanced Blockchain AG, based in Berlin, are experts in the field of DLT. They have set themselves the goal of bringing Distributed Ledger Technology into the real economy. They focus on B2B business in the area of ​​Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things (IoT).
