KT Corporation (KT), Korea’s largest telecoms company, is launching its new 5th generation internet service and will be using Blockchain technology to provide additional security, which they believe is important especially for the growing Internet of Things (IoT) market.

The reason they are focussing on IoT is, that according to KT, 99% of IoT devices have been subject to some form of hacking, but KT hopes that by using Blockchain technology they can make IoT devices more secure.Korea has been at the forefront of Blockchain and Digital Asset adoption, and KT had only a few weeks ago announced it was to trial the K Token in a city called Gimpo, in Korea. The K token is designed to help residents and shops in Gimpo to be able to carry out transactions faster and more efficiently, and interestingly, is also going to be used to help in social and community projects.

Alibaba, the world’s biggest FinTech company, which is capitalized at over $453Billion is planning to use Blockchain and Internet of Things (IoT) for its vast international logistics and supply chains.

Alibaba has been experimenting with Blockchain for a while with its Food Trust Framework as it tries to improve transparency, help customers track goods and ensure their authenticity. Using QR codes customers will be able to scan a good and have greater certainty over a product's provenance.

Given Alibaba’s distribution and financial clout, one wonders how long it will be before they launch the AliCoin as a possible way to encourage and reward customers in some form of loyalty scheme. An AliCoin could then be exchanged for goods and services as Alibaba continues its expansion into banking and financial services with Alipay.
