The real-world adoption of blockchain technology is a slowly developing process. It requires the proper use cases and a willing public open to new experiences when venturing outside of their comfort zone.
An increasing number of real-world applications appear to be the motivating factor behind the recent gains seen in Fetch.ai (FET), a protocol focused on building an open access, token-based decentralized machine learning network to support the smart infrastructure being built around the digital economy.
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and Trading View shows that after hitting a low of $0.658 on Sept. 6, the price of FET spiked 70% to $1.12 on Sept. 7 — a new record high. Meanwhile, FET’s 24-hour trading volume surged 538% to $590 million.
The rapid increase in price and trading volume comes as the project tests a new multi-modal transport application called “Deep Parking,” an application built with AI and blockchain technology that helps automobile drivers locate empty parking spaces.
The protocol also achieved a “global first” on Sept. 7 when an on-board Fetch.ai agent successfully interacted with Datarella’s self-sovereign identity, allowing the driver to rent a scooter from Tier Mobility.
