Hamburg, 30th September 2020
The investment company coinIX GmbH & Co. KGaA, which specializes in investments in digital assets and blockchain technology, is expanding its investment portfolio by acquiring a stake in NATIX GmbH. In addition to the management team, other shareholders of the Hamburg-based start-up include the Silicon Valley-based VC investor Plug and Play Ventures.
NATIX GmbH is developing a platform on which city surveillance cameras automatically detect relevant events with the help of artificial intelligence and exchange information with other cameras via a blockchain-based communication interface developed by NATIX itself. Cameras from different manufacturers and operators can also be integrated in order to better control traffic flows or to be able to react faster and more specifically in the event of an accident. The solutions developed by NATIX are particularly relevant for operators of industrial plants and for the development of Smart Cities.
During the Covid pandemic, NATIX was able to offer a pilot application of its software, the "virtual doorman", which automatically recognizes whether people are wearing the mandatory mouth protection and gives a signal if no mask is worn. As the camera automatically anonymizes the face, privacy rights and data protection are respected.
Dr. Christoph Lymbersky, managing director of coinIX GmbH & Co KGaA explains: "The interaction of artificial intelligence, networked devices and blockchain technology is impressive, NATIX combines AI, IoT and Distributed Ledger Technologies! Through networking and cooperation between older and new camera systems, entire cities can be transformed into Smart Cities within a very short time."
Dr. Alireza Ghods, Co-Founder of NATIX adds: "We are always looking for investors who offer more than just capital. Investors that are willing to get involved and get their hands dirty. And from our early talks, coinIX's showed great courage and effort to help NATIX in our journey. We are looking forward to working closely with the coinIX team."
