With the emergence of blockchain technology, more and more industries are adopting blockchain as a transparent, trustworthy, and tamper-proof data management system.

According to Simon-Kucher & Partners, the automotive industry’s blockchain-based application in 2030 will have a potential output value of 104 billion euros. Various car manufacturers and suppliers are proposing using blockchains to manage car resumes, accident records, and maintenance history.

CARPOST is the leading global luxury car trading platform in Taiwan and has more than 100,000 available cars on their platform. CARPOST is also adopting blockchain technology to facilitate second-hand car transactions with a transparent customer experience.

With the partnership, Numbers protocol and CARPOST will build a transparent supply chain management system including car resume, resale history, components maintenance, insurance information, and certification.

Many of the second-hand car suppliers have already used blockchain to assist with data collection. The problem with this is most of them use a token-based approach. With a token-based technology, the token which represents the vehicle will end their lifecycle after the transaction is done.

Also, lacking a transparent management system will cost a huge effort to link thousands of data on blockchain and may cause mis-used documents on the second-hand car market.

Numbers Protocol provides an asset-based solution to the digital media monetization process. With the similar logistics and solution architecture, Numbers Protocol can make up for the deficiency in current blockchain solutions in the automobile industry.
Along with CARPOST, we will co-build a web 3.0 supply chain management system starting from a simple car component to the usage and maintenance history in an ‘asset-based’, transparent, and easy-to-link design.

In addition to that, by providing a certified maintenance service. All maintenance history, component purchases and replacement to a vehicle can be recorded and linked to a specific “vehicle identity certificate” powered by CARPOST and Numbers Protocol through the decentralized management system.

“In the second-hand car sales market, the biggest pain point for consumers is “information asymmetry” “, said Kevin Chen, CEO of CARPOST. “CARPOST aims to provide a Safety, Transparency, and Innovation platform for second-hand import cars. By collaborating with Numbers Protocol, We can also extend the blockchain technology usage into the car components and maintenance. Providing our customers a comprehensive assurance not only for the second-hand sale but also the following components purchase and maintenance records and certified by CARPOST. To keep the value of a second-hand vehicle and preserve all traceable data in a web 3.0 solution powered by Numbers Protocol.”
