Quick overview of this issue : Patrick De Potter, CEO of EVAIO, a former Tesla executive in Europe as a guest at Brock Technology Time Point Dialogue, with the theme of "Distributed Car Data, Helping Blockchain Landing", to bring you wonderful sharing .
Patrick said that blockchain will return freedom to people who have data and will lead the world to decentralization. As an executive from the automotive industry, he believes that the traditional automotive industry has earned some benefits in recent years that do not belong to them, but belong to vehicle users. The combination of the traditional automobile industry and blockchain technology will become transparent and decentralized, and return benefits to the people who generate the data. The sharing of data means that data owners have more choices. Therefore, the electric vehicle industry urgently needs talents in the blockchain field.
Talking about the recent IEOs, Patrick said that IEOs provide better exposure opportunities for blockchain projects and faster development opportunities for teams of high-quality projects. With the development of blockchain technology, the era of large-scale commercial use of blockchain is also accelerating. Patrick believes that blockchain commercial applications require people who accept transparency and dare to experiment.
In addition, he stated that blockchain is the future. Everything in the blockchain world is transparent and open. No one can own all the data. This is the task of the community.

[Time of Dialogue First Question]
" Blockchain returns freedom to those who have data, and will lead the world to decentralization "
Shi Yanqiang : Patrick is a veteran manager of Tesla in Europe. He has worked for Tesla for more than 5 years. When did you first learn about blockchain? What is your biggest feeling about blockchain technology?
Patrick : When I was working at Tesla, I met some people who had worked for more than five years. They introduced me to the blockchain.
I think the blockchain has a pivotal position in the world, because the blockchain will change the current centralized world into a decentralized world, and the blockchain will return freedom to people who have data.
[Time point dialogue 2.question]
"The electric vehicle industry urgently needs talents in the blockchain field "
Shi Yanqiang: You are the CEO of EVAIO, you can give you a brief introduction to EVAIO. What are the advantages of EVAIO in the new energy track and the blockchain track?
Patrick : The EVAIO team is mainly composed of Tesla people, which means that we are already moving towards a new world in the field of electric vehicles. Our team also has experienced blockchain experts. The electric vehicle industry urgently needs talents in the blockchain field.
EVAIO focuses on returning the data generated by the vehicle to people to ensure that the vehicle can obtain EVA and finally complete independent payment. EVAIO has a bright future in the future.
[Time point dialogue The third question]
"The combination of the traditional automobile industry and blockchain technology will become transparent and decentralized, and return the benefits to the people who generate the data. "
Shi Yanqiang : As an executive from the automotive industry, what do you think are the pain points of the traditional automotive industry? What are the advantages of combining with blockchain technology?
Patrick : In recent years, the traditional automobile industry has earned some benefits that do not belong to them, but belong to vehicle users. The traditional model of car manufacturers does not share the benefits of data with car owners who own cars + data.
In my opinion, the problem with the traditional model car factory is not simply how to handle the collected data openly and transparently. The combination of the traditional automobile industry and blockchain technology makes these data transparent and decentralized, and returns the benefits to the people who generate the data.
[Time point dialogue Fourth question]
" Data sharing means data owners have more choices "
Shi Yanqiang: Previously, the cooperation between EVAIO and Faraday Future attracted a lot of attention. Why did EVAIO choose to cooperate with Faraday? What progress has been made so far?
Patrick : Last year we found an opportunity to share with the world what EVAIO is trying to do. The best way for us is to do it the way Tesla people do, but we need an experienced partner. We think Faraday The future is very suitable.
Faraday Future has the ability to be a blockbuster. As a differentiated electric vehicle from Tesla, we believe that the combination of it and EVAIO will make both parties win-win, because the sharing of data means that car owners have more choices. The current situation of EVAIO's cooperation with them is that they have temporarily found another financing opportunity, but we have been working hard in this direction.
[Time Point Dialogue Fifth Question]
" IEO provides better exposure opportunities for blockchain projects and faster development opportunities for teams of high-quality projects "
Shi Yanqiang : The blockchain industry is always full of changes. Recently, IEO has become a new outlet. Do you think IEO can become the touchstone of industry projects? What is the current development status of the Dutch IEO market?
Patrick : Unlike digital currency fundraising, IEO provides products with a new opportunity to showcase their products to the market. Digital currency fundraising will take more time and more complicated, but in fact, to a certain extent, the final result will not be too different from the IEO.
IEO provides better exposure opportunities for blockchain projects and faster development opportunities for teams of high-quality projects. At present, European IEOs are not very active. Everyone is thinking and observing the IEO project models and actions in Asian countries. The Dutch IEO market is still relatively deserted.
[Time and Point Dialogue Sixth Question]
" Blockchain commercial applications need to be transparent and those who dare to try "
Shi Yanqiang : With the gradual improvement of technology, the commercial era of blockchain is gradually approaching. In your opinion, what are the benefits of blockchain technology for commercial applications? How to promote the large-scale commercial use of blockchain technology?
Patrick : IEO is online on the exchange, so the exchange has become a third-party organization that verifies and endorses the quality of the project. If the project party just wants to launder money or fool others, this will not work in IEO, because IEO is open and transparent. This can encourage investor participation.
When talking about the commercial application of blockchain technology, most people are still relatively unfamiliar with it, but when it comes time to try to use blockchain technology to do something in the electric vehicle industry, commercial applications will follow. Blockchain commercial applications need people who are transparent and dare to try.
[Time and Point Dialogue Seventh Question]
"The blockchain world is transparent and open. No one can have all the data. This is the task of the community. "
Shi Yanqiang : Blockchain technology is still at an early stage of development. The recent continuous rise in the market has given practitioners a lot of confidence. What do you think of the future of blockchain? What plans does EVAIO have in the near future?
Patrick : What do you think of the future of blockchain? I think blockchain is the future. People all over the world lose their assets due to various crises, and many people no longer trust banks and governments. For the blockchain world, everything is transparent and open. Everyone can know what happened, not in the form of data, but as a result. No one can own all the data. This is the task of the community. This is why the decentralization of data is very important.
EVAIO will play an important role in this regard. EVAIO will have decentralized applications and will cooperate with electric car manufacturers. We will also do token-based auto insurance business. EVAIO is currently negotiating with many companies to increase EVAIO's landing scenarios, such as payment, and other ecosystem scenarios, breaking traditional boundaries. For example, you can go to McDonald's to buy a burger with EVA through your car.
EVAIO is also working hard to get other companies to join the electric car market, such as home charging piles and other software that can be used and installed in collaboration. Electric vehicle manufacturers and their subsidiaries are EVAIO s main goals for seeking cooperation. At present, we are negotiating cooperation with 4-5 companies in the United Kingdom, the United States and the Netherlands. We hope that the cooperation can be reached and officially announced in the next 2-3 months.
[Time point dialogue Inheritance question]
Shi Yanqiang : As a senior evangelist in the blockchain industry, Patrick should have contacted many people in the circle. Are there any practitioners you admire and admire? Why? [Brock Technology] Currently covering 5,000 community node users in 250 cities in 15 countries and 1 million+, we hope to invite more celebrities to share blockchain knowledge in the community through [Time Point Dialogue] to promote the further development of the entire industry Development, if Patrick introduces two guests, who will you recommend as a guest [Brock Technology] for sharing?
Patrick : There are many celebrities in the history of the blockchain industry, and they continue to create new things. (If you don't consider the difficulty) I am most looking forward to meeting and wanting to invite the founders of Bitcoin and Ethereum. Because I also want to know how they created all of this from scratch. If I could meet them, I would feel very honored, especially in Europe, it seems that there are few people who are so influential in the blockchain industry.
(Thanks to Patrick for sharing, and thanks to every Brockman for support)
