New Balance has always been quite flustered about "trademark piracy" and believes that this behavior undermines the company's strategic layout. In the past few years, New Balance has also actively cooperated with local regulators in the market in an attempt to combat the fake shoe market.

In the past, a company called “New Boom” in China copied the classic LOGO of New Balance and launched a jogging shoe with rhinestones. After New Balance was brought to court, the judge thought that New Boom's goods were easily confused by consumers. Therefore, you must compensate New Balance for $1.5 billion in damages.

This collaboration is also a goal for New Balance to realize the authenticity of footwear on the chain through Cardano's technology in the blockchain.

One of Nestle's investment brands, "Maggi's Mousline Instant Potato Clay" will be the first to apply this blockchain food production and sales experience.

IOHK Recent News

In addition to strategic cooperation with New Balance, IOHK announced in April this year that it will work with the Ethiopian government to develop a new cryptocurrency. Chief Executive Hoskinson told the Nikkei News at the time:

There is no better country than Ethiopia to create virtual currency. In countries where 70% of the population is under 30, unstable in life and well-versed in the Internet, it is best suited to create virtual currency.

The cryptocurrency will provide a secure payment method to cover the public expenses and public transportation costs of the country's capital, Adis Adaba. In addition, Cardano also needs to establish a new traceability solution for the Ethiopian government.

Although the partnership with New Balance is critical to Cardano's move to the world, IOHK's spokesperson is still reluctant to disclose when the strategic contract with New Balance will begin before the deadline.
