Blockchain is a type of decentralised and completely secure information storage and transmission technology.

Applications in Finance

Applications in responsible economy

For example, at the 2019 World Economic Forum in Davos, the WWF launched OpenSC, a platform that uses blockchain to closely track food supplies and products. It can determine a product’s origin, its environmental impact, the working conditions of the personnel producing it, etc.

Applications in logistics

In Supply Chain, the challenges involving real-time data recording and storage are crucial for the successful digitalisation of the logistics sector. Blockchain could play a central role in the development of logistics chains by guaranteeing flawless traceability.
