IDENTIFIED PROBLEM AND PROPOSED SOLUTION
Togg’s goal has been to become “a global provider of USE CASE – MOBILITY®” and has chosen Blockchain technology to achieve its goal. Togg Mobility Ecosystem, based on the Togg Blockchain platform, emerges as a solution to address the challenges around urban mobility and lead the future, where mobility services merge with smart technologies to make the user enjoy a frictionless journey. The Togg Blockchain platform is being developed as an innovative Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) platform. Built on top of Avalanche’s C-Chain, this solution allows users to exchange data across the ecosystem in a secure and eco-friendly way.
Togg enables users of its mobility ecosystem to benefit from a range of innovative use cases backed by smart contracts, including tokenization of mobility services, CO2 footprint assessment and NFT ownership (art, collectibles, etc.), included in the in-car digital asset wallet. Metaco’s digital asset custody and orchestration platform, Harmonize™, which has already been tested and implemented in many financial institutions, provides Togg with the ability to manage secure custody and governance of digital assets for treasury management, as well as an easy-to-use wallet solution for end users. In addition, Harmonize provides a versatile smart contract management framework for the Togg ecosystem, providing comprehensive lifecycle management of digital assets and full service asset support, including minting, burning, storage and transfer of NFTs.
