New York will become a smart city through implementing blockchain technology

Berlin based company MXC,announced the launch of their “Smart City IoT Standard”, the MX Protocol, in New York City. The 2019 NYC Smart City Program will see hundreds of Smart Sensors & LPWAN Gateways deployed across the 5 areas.

These high tech sensors will collect data from a wide range of sources, including walking routes, sewage flows, building occupancy, car usage and temperature, significantly optimizing city-wide device to device communication, improving residents quality of life all through MXC’s blockchain protocols.

More on MXC

The MXC Foundation is built with the mission to inspire fast, efficient, decentralized data exchanges using LPWAN and Blockchain technology. The MXC team believes that their current blockchain technology paired with LPWAN is the next step in  enabling secure, vastly scalable, lightning fast transactions.

2019 is expected to usher in a “new wave” in Blockchain technology, with a clear focus on integration and real-world implementation. With more international cities expected to roll out throughout 2019, MXC is focusing on giving Blockchain a true purpose within the IoT world.

MXC Co-Founder Aaron Wagener commented:

This is a big day for New Yorkers and for the future of IoT,” “Using the MXProtocol and the insights of Citiesense we’re significantly increasing Data Reach and Efficiency, ultimately improving the lives of all citizens throughout the city.

While its still too early to tell what will happen next or what will be approved by the city’s governance, we know that we are headed towards the correct direction in terms of technology expansion and blockchain.
