Solving problems, powering change

Blockchain technology has the power to revamp industry. Some of the most successful ICOs ( Initial Coin Offerings) are using the power of blockchain technology to solve real problems in established markets.

Have your heard of Wabi, Modum, VeChain and other hyper-successful crypto coins? They have one thing in common; they are bringing blockchain to complex global supply chains to increase transparency and consumer confidence. And their token values skyrocketed on the exchanges in Q4 2017.

One thing is clear, blockchain is one of the sexiest applications for supply chains. But the question remains, how scalable are these solutions? Supply chains create an enormous amount of data. And there are cost and ecological reservations to blockchain technology. There must be a better way to utilize blockchain in supply chains.
