Toyota systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation focused on information technology, plans to develop and test a digital currency as part of a new pilot project with Japanese cryptocurrency exchange DeCurret.
According to a press release, the project will involve 2,500 employees at Toyota Systems and will entail creating a platform that features digital currency payments for employee benefits.

The Block Research was commissioned by Forte to create “Blockchain-Based Gaming: A Primer” which provides a comprehensive introduction to how blockchain technology is being employed in video gaming experiences.
