[Longread] Why blockchain needs to be part of your supply chain strategy

Imagine a simple head of lettuce on a supermarket shelf.

What farm was it grown on? What methods were used in the growing? How far did it travel to the store? When a business deploys blockchain, consumers can track the lettuce from the time it was sown to when it reaches the store shelves. That’s right: blockchain has many other applications beyond Bitcoin.

If business is about creating customer value, then the supply chain is about delivering that value to the customer in the most efficient and effective manner. Blockchain strengthens the supply chain by hardcoding that trust with security, bringing reliability with better asset management, and optimising manual work – by saving hours of labor spent on reconciling accounts and settling disputes.
