No, this is not about Tesla.

But if you've started thinking about Tesla as your car being your phone, then you're probably in the right direction to this brilliant Master's thesis, which you can download below, all 100+ pages of it.

Are you ready for the future of transportation? Autonomous vehicles are already on the roads, and they're only going to become more prevalent in the coming years.

But what if we told you that these vehicles could be even more advanced with the help of bitcoin?

That's where the Bitcoin Car-Wallet comes in. This innovative concept, explored in a Master's Degree Thesis from Politecnico di Torino, uses bitcoin to create a secure and efficient payment system for autonomous vehicles.

So, what are some advantages of using a Bitcoin Car-Wallet for autonomous vehicles?

For one, it allows for seamless and secure payments between vehicles and charging stations.

With the use of smart contracts, payments can be automatically processed without the need for intermediaries, reducing transaction fees and increasing efficiency.

But that's not all.

The Bitcoin Car-Wallet also utilizes the Lightning Network, a second-layer solution that allows for faster and cheaper transactions.

This means that payments can be processed in real-time, making the charging process even more convenient for drivers.

Another key feature of the Bitcoin Car-Wallet is the use of BIP32 Hierarchical Deterministic Wallets.

These wallets allow for multiple addresses to be generated from a single seed, making it easier to manage and secure funds.

This is especially important in the context of autonomous vehicles, where security is paramount.

Overall, the Bitcoin Car-Wallet has the potential to revolutionize the way we think about payments in the context of autonomous vehicles.

By leveraging the power of bitcoin, we can create a more secure, efficient, and convenient payment system for the future of transportation.

Instinctively, this reminded me of Satimoto—

No sign-up, no credit cards, charge your electric vehicle and pay instantly using Bitcoin over the Lightning Network.

Which was previously just for car-charging stations, but this month has become a full-pledged Lightning wallet using Breez—

Mea culpa. I've been forgetting about Breez in my writings.
