From the original point of raw material production to waste utilization, install all supply chains around the world on blockchain.
Recently, Linfinity CEO Anndy Lian has accepted an exclusive interview with the Asia Business Daily in Seoul, South Korea. He said that Linfinity is promoting the use of blockchain, Internet of Things and big data to reshape supply chain ecology. Since all users participating in the internet are able to compare and verify by sharing information, the possible existence of fakes has reached an unprecedentedly low level. Linfinity is to use this feature to build a transparent supply chain ecosystem.

Maersk Group, the world’s largest shipping company, and IBM, established a partnership in January of this year to jointly create a blockchain maritime logistics system.The UAE’s Abu Dhabi Gulf Commune (ADP) has introduced the blockchain logistics system earlier this month. However, Linfinity is conceiving a much larger blueprint by linking the Internet of Things, big data and blockchain, Linfinity will make the whole process of circulation, supply, and recycling transparent from the point of raw materials to the stage of waste utilization. Anndy also mentioned that “Just like the pharmaceutical industry, no matter how strict the management process is for logistics from the production room to the storage warehouse, there are still frauds in the delivery of drugs to consumers. This is the truth.” He emphasized that “On Linfinity platform, the process from buying a plastic bottle to the recycle will become transparent and visualized.”
Since Linfinity was set up last year, they have signed MOU withTaiwan’s tobacco brand Alishan and other companies from China, Singapore and Malaysia to explore blockchain technology. It is expected that as early as August 2018, Linfinity will achieve phased results and build a truly blockchain project.
