In the last 20-30 years there has been a strong increase in digital information. The generated digital world is becoming a duplicate of our physical world. To bring trust and value to the digital world, blockchain technology plays a crucial role. Sensors and actuators of the Internet of Things connect physical objects with their digital twins. With a close connection to a blockchain, this connection can be protected from manipulation and fictitious values. Crypto tokens enable the transfer of material assets into the digital world. This enables any kind of economic functionality in virtual space. The presentation gives an overview of current applications and interdisciplinary research projects.
