On November 15, 2018 I spoke at the Iowa IT Symposium discussing the basics of blockchain and how it will be used in our global food supply chain.
Learn the basics of blockchain technology along with applicable use cases in the global food chain.
What's the gist?
The food system is changing, driven by consumer preference and digital technology. This is impacting the entire global food chain from farm to fork. Agriculture is evolving too, to keep up with the demand. What's this have to do with blockchain, the distributed ledger technology? Well, part of those changing consumer preferences is wanting to know more about where the food comes from. They aren't the only ones though. Companies like Walmart want to know too, because tracing food is important for food safety and food waste. Blockchain helps with this.
