The Supply Chain on the Blockchain

By Laurent Hardy

The Supply Chain on the Blockchain

Everything we use or consume comes directly from nature or it comes from a supply chain. The main problem with supply chains comes from the industrial era, a time when centralisation began. It started by centralising the production, then moved on with capital and finished with risk. Not only does this have human costs, it also creates an extremely unequal and unfair competition between countries for cheap access to capital and creates inefficiencies throughout the whole supply chain itself.
