One of the most important banks in Norway, Den Norse Bank (DNB ASA), will be working with the IOTA Foundation to explore possible future applications of IOTA’s Tangle distributed ledger technology. The information has been released on a press release on may the 31st signed by Wilfried Pimenta, Head of Biz Dev at the IOTA Foundation.
DNB Teams Up with IOTA
According to the statement released the IOTA Foundation signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) so as to find new business models across their respective industries.
David Sonstebo, Founder of IOTA Foundation, Norway, commented:
“Norway has always ben a vanguard in adopting cutting edge technological paradigm shifts that improve the efficiency of our society, I am very excited at the IOTA Foundation which is spearheading Distributed Ledger Technology and IoT payments working with Norway’s largest financial institution on carrying this tradition onwards.”
This is great news for the IOTA community worldwide – which keeps expanding month after month – and for the crypto community in general. Just some time ago, an important cryptocurrency exchange from Norway lost a case against Nordea Bank for closing its account.
DNB is not the first bank that is working with distributed ledger technology. In general, several banks all over the world are implementing blockchain solutions so as to improve the services and products they are offering to the market.
At the moment, DNB ASA, is Norway’s biggest bank and one of the most important in the other Nordic countries. It has a market capitalization of $238 billion dollars and is not the first time that it invests in blockchain technology. In the past it worked with the R3 consortium, Ethereum, Hyperledger and EOS.
IOTA has also been working with Sweden so as to power its cryptocurrency known as e-Korna. The Swedish central bank, Riksbank, said that the e-Krona could be used for small transactions between consumers, companies and local authorities.
In this way, Sweden would be among one of the first countries so as to implement a national cryptocurrency using IOTA.
IOTA is revolutionizing several industries and the Nordic countries are among those benefited by this technology.
