Start-up Yptokey launches software solution for digital keys and access authorization systems
"Our technology is easy and convenient for the end customer and, thanks to a decentralized blockchain approach, it is secure and exceptionally trustworthy," says Tobias Rasche, the CEO of Yptokey. "We are currently focusing on a successful market launching of the technology outside the automotive field. But our technology is highly flexible and scalable. This means that it can be carried over step by step to other areas of application directly related to the automotive branch. And there is the prospect that it can also be complemented by new business models with other industrial partners."
Therefore, it is possible that the technology developed by Yptokey will be implemented for the first time in the automotive sector within the next two to three years. "HELLA already boasts a leading market position in the key fob business," explains Timon Rupp, Head of the HELLA Incubator in Berlin. "We expect the demand for digital car keys to rise considerably both in the area of private use and also in conjunction with new mobility services. So we will be specifically supplementing our existing portfolio by way of an innovative and service-oriented approach, which will make possible a wealth of new functionalities."
