There is enormous potential for blockchain technology to pave the way in this new economic structure in the IoT economy.”

AERO Foundation, via its product AERO Token, will serve as both a repository of available airspace for commercial drone services to map flight routes and as a trusted facilitator. With blockchain technology, the AERO Network will allow property owners to monetize otherwise idling airspace through the granting of Right-of-Way access to trusted third parties, enabling property owners to realize income with minimal effort and risk. By leveraging the collaboration framework, expertise and governance provided by the Trusted IoT Alliance, the AERO Foundation can enhance protocols that the entire drone and logistics sector can place their trust in.

Founded by leaders from global technology companies including Cisco, Bosch, BNY Mellon and Gemalto, the Trusted IoT Alliance has extensive development and blockchain expertise, where the founders lead blockchain-based companies including Consensys,, BitSE, Chronicled, Qtum, BigchainDB, Ledger,, Skuchain, and IOTA.
