Blockchain has had considerable hype, as well as confusion and misinformation. This talk explains blockchain’s features that make it so promising for a number of industries supply chains. Blockchain is not simply a shiny new and slightly more efficient replacement for existing technology, it has the potential to transform the supply of goods and services.

Through the discussion we will demonstrate how blockchain can be used in the supply chain context.
