Each of these new stakeholders will contribute their unique experiences to help promote the values of the Catena-X ecosystem in general.

The Catena-X ecosystem is one of the vital areas in which blockchain technology can gain a massive expression in the automotive industry. The platform provides an opportunity for stakeholders in the ecosystem to establish an open, and scalable network for secure, cross-company and standardized information and data exchange based on a concept being developed by Catena-X itself.

The addition of the Ocean Protocol’s BigchainDB, for instance, is sure to let the blockchain startup bring its expertise in Web 3.0 and implementing token-based ecosystems to the multi-stakeholder consortium-led project, a contribution it will offer along with its experience in building open-source communities.
