In the moveID interview series, each of the 18 project participants introduces himself and explains why the company he represents has become part of the Gaia-X 4 Future Mobility project family.
This interview features Jochen Kaßberger, Managing Director and Co-Founder of 51nodes.
|Why did you join moveID?
|The project GAIA-X 4 moveID is an excellent example of decentralized digital network-creation among participants of the mobile smart city. We see this kind of decentralization as part of a future crypto economy. We as 51nodes work on the infrastructures to enable the decentral crypto economy – in the #mobility and other sectors.
|What are you planning to deliver?
|We aim to deliver an interoperable digital infrastructure for self-sovereign identities (SSI) of all participants of the mobile smart city. In developing this infrastructure, we bring our expertise regarding #SSI to the table. We aim to tie the infrastructure to the GAIA-X base technology for privacy-preserving data spaces.
|What is your overall goal?
|Our vision is to foster the uptake of a lively ecosystem of data-driven services around the #futuremobility infrastructure of moveID. To make this vision happen, we would like to see initial examples that use our infrastructure in the real world as soon as possible.
|What will moveID facilitate for your organization?
|The moveID-project will help deepen our technical expertise regarding SSI-related technologies. We also look forward to enhancing our network in the mobility sector and deepening our expertise in mobility use cases. We will be happy to work together with like-minded #web3-companies.
|Who are you and what is your role in your organization?
Managing Director and co-founder of 51nodes, responsible for strategy and business development.
|What drives you, personally?
|Personally, I’m motivated by seeing what is possible with the help of new technologies like #SSI and #blockchain. I think SSI can really help users re-gain ownership and control of their data. I also like to help companies in shaping the crypto economy. For this reason, I co-founded 51nodes.
