Chained Together: How Blockchain is Improving Supply Chains

Chained Together: How Blockchain is Improving Supply Chains

Chained Together: How Blockchain is Improving Supply Chains is an online event organized by the Boston Blockchain Association.

Blockchain is radically improving supply chains by making products easier to track, from the raw materials to the finished goods.

Imagine a world where you’ll be able to see not just where your coffee was grown or your iPhone was assembled, but every step in the process, all recorded on a transparent blockchain.

This has huge implications for everything from fair trade and fair wages, to making companies and governments far more efficient.

The Boston Blockchain Association has put together a distinguished panel of supply chain and blockchain experts to give all a state of where the industry stands today, including:

Leanne Kemp, CEO and Founder of Everledger: Perhaps the most well-known blockchain + supply chain project in the world, Everledger started as an immutable ledger for diamond identification and transaction verification — and has grown into a platform for measuring the “value chain” of everything from rare earth metals to designer handbags:

“Anti-Counterfeit

LVMH, the parent company of a slew of luxury brands that often fight counterfeits in the market, has taken the lead in using blockchain in their efforts, partnering with Microsoft to launch the AURA anti-counterfeiting initiative. LVMH is focusing first on Louis Vuitton fashion and Christian Dior perfumes, and hopes to provide what is basically a lasting certificate of authenticity for every item, which makes it possible to verify that the item was actually manufactured by the brand in a way that assists the initial purchase but also the resale market.

This is an area that has also been active from a start-up perspective, with new tech vendors organizing to provide white-label solutions for any brand to protect the authenticity of their products. LINFINITY is one such company, and simplyBrand is another. They work by providing the technology that enables companies to basically issue certificates of authenticity for their products, and attach them to individual items, often using either an NFC chip or a 2-D barcode embedded in the packaging or as a label to connect the item to the digital certificate.”
