Andorra Telecom Joins Spanish Conglomerate, Alastria’s Link2Chain, Gets Its Own Blockchain Node
Andorra Telecomm and Alastria form a partnership that will see the former run its own node on the latter’s blockchain.
Andorra Telecoms becomes the latest corporation to enter a partnership with the Spanish national token and identity blockchain conglomerate, Alastria earlier on Wednesday.
The partnership aims to enhance the networks on Andorra Telecoms by integrating blockchain based solutions to its internal processes. The collaboration aims also to offer Andorra with its own blockchain node to run on the blockchain network.
Alastria is a large consortium of over 800 companies in Spain aiming to integrate blockchain and digitize assets for the large companies in the country.
“An open collaboration”
The collaboration between the two companies provides an open network and a gateway to better solutions in the telecommunication industry. Back in November 2016, the telecomm company launched its NIU incubator and business accelerator with the aim of promoting entrepreneurship in the field of technology and to encourage the development of new activities that contribute to the country’s economic diversification.
The partnership with Alastria is set to highlight the projects in the NIU program such as the Link2Chain entrepreneurship program.
Furthermore, the general director of Andorra Telecomm, Jordi Nadal praised the partnership with Alastria claiming the partnership provides a gateway for new possibilities on the blockchain. He further said,
“The agreement with Alastria allows us to reinforce the technological pillar and allows developments with different technologies, all of them of reference.”
Earlier in January, SEAT, a Spanish car manufacturer joined Alastria conglomerate with the aim to develop blockchain solutions to help with urban mobility initiative.
The project started out in the production and manufacturing with finance and sales set to follow in the coming months. Andorra’s government is currently heavily invested in blockchain technology and education is a crucial sector that is rapidly adopting the revolutionary tech.
In February, the government of Andorra announced their plans to introduce higher education digital certificates recorded on blockchain. This is set to create a more secure and easily accessible registry for the students.
