But is the idea of shared economy, in which drivers receive rewards for their communal actions. Under this system, crypto can be earned by a driver for alerting others. Equally, any funds could pay for motoring expenses, such as parking or toll fees. This concept forms the basis of the future, in which technology will be used to improve lives’ city. On speaking of the partnership, Holger Köther, Director of Partnerships at IOTA Foundation stated:

“Our dispersed ledger technology is perfectly suited to empower obligations for charging, parking and tolls, as well as creating opportunities to earn their own money. We’re eager to partner with Jaguar Land Rover in executing its IOTA-powered car wallet, delivering a significant convenience benefit for their clients. ”

IOTA Price

On news of the collaboration, the IOTA price surged 17 percent to around $0.31 in the time of publication. This represents a 94% decrease in the all-time-high of $5.01, in December 2017. But nonetheless, is still welcome news considering the announcement bucked a sliding trend.

The same, the present direction may experience some retracement. According to Lunar Express, a small dip in price might be incoming, as bulls struggle to break resistance in the $0.31 level. However, should resistance be broken, a potential rise to $0.41, or even $0.52 is possible in the not too distant future.

Bulls still have to manage that resistance zone and this rally can stall around 0.4165 and 0.4589. Bulls need to smash it through 0.52754 in order to make it striking! That my friends, would be our point of no return!!! #crypto #iota #trading #bulls #cryptotrading
