The Börse Stuttgart Group (BSG) has announced that, together with Bosch, Daimler Mobility and 51nodes, it has developed a flexible method for financing industrial capital goods on a blockchain basis.
On the one hand, the new method allows investors to invest in industrial capital goods (e.g. machinery, vehicle fleets or energy infrastructure) via digital tokens.
On the other hand, the issuer of the tokens has the advantage of linking its financing costs to the actual utilisation of the financed goods according to a pay-per-use model.
The Ethereum blockchain has been selected. The project partners have filed a patent application for a process that links the usage data to the token.
