Colnago Becomes First Cycling Manufacturer To Adopt Digital Product Passport Powered By Blockchain

September 23, 2021

Beginning with the bike that will be raced by 2020 and 2021 Tour de France champion, Tadej Pogačar this coming Sunday at the 2021 UCI Road Racing World Championship in Belgium, Colnago will integrate blockchain technology into its new bicycles. As the first manufacturer to link its physical products to a virtual, distributed ledger, Colnago leads the way to ensure the validity and proof of ownership of new Colnago frames. Colnago will begin to leverage blockchain technology across its frames starting in 2022.

Colnago’s partner for this innovative program is Italian tech company MyLime who has developed a strong base of partners in the luxury market. MyLime will connect Colnago frames to the Automotive Blockchain® where records of any frame’s manufacture, transport and sale will be recorded. Because the data stored on the blockchain is distributed, it can not be faked or changed once registered, providing ultimate proof of ownership. Yahoo! Finance
