December 2021 Webinar – Blockchains and the Supply Chain

Blockchains and the Supply Chain: From basic principles to real applications

airs live Friday, 2021-12-03 at 11 am EST/EDT (UTC -5/UTC -4)

Webinar Description

Cryptocurrency is a specific type of data stored on a blockchain and a blockchain is a type of distributed ledger. A distributed ledger is simply a ledger (data) distributed across multiple computers. The challenge with any distributed data is synchronization and if we are to trust data, we also need to know that it has not been tampered with, that it is immutable. In this short webinar, Peter Benson will take you on a journey from cryptocurrency to blockchain and distributed ledgers focusing on their applicability to the supply chain. More than just a primer on the subject, Peter will review some of the supply chain pilot projects and explain the current challenges as well as what we can expect to gain from the application of distributed ledger technology in the future.
