Polygon Teams Up With Mercedes To Create A Blockchain Data Solution• July 29, 2022 12:16 pm • Comments
Mercedes-Benz doesn’t just dabble in automobiles…
The German precision engineering giant is reportedly teaming up with Polygon to offer a blockchain data exchange solution for businesses called Acentrink.
Daimler, a subdivision of the Mercedes-Benz group, will be working directly with the layer-2 scaling solution to facilitate streamlined and decentralized exchange-trading of data between businesses and firms.
Currently, data is a hot commodity between institutions, firms, and businesses, but no robust, decentralized exchange exists for the trading of information back and forth.
To date, Chainlink is the only notable contender with high hopes of being the blockchain solution for certain organizations to monetize their data, but no plans have yet been made for a full-fledged decentralized data exchange on Chainlink.
Here’s what everyone is saying:

Ledger Insights explains
Acentrik is squarely targeted at enterprise users, including Know Your Business and extensive access controls. The data is not stored on the blockchain, but a non-fungible token (NFT) represents each dataset and a metadata hash is stored with it.
