Boeing uses blockchain to track and sell parts for $ 1 billion

The American corporation Boeing has partnered with aerospace giant Honeywell to track and sell $ 1 billion of air components through the GoDirect blockchain platform.

According to Honeywell CEO Lisa Butters, GoDirect aims to develop digital commerce, which accounts for only 3% of the $ 14 billion market.

The company plans to solve the problem of a large number of documents testifying to the quality and origin of the goods. Each paper document should be moved from place to place and re-enter the owner’s data manually, which entails excessive manual work, time and financial costs.

By the end of 2020, Butters expects sales of the platform at around $ 25 million, by 2021 — $ 100 million, and by 2022 — $ 1 billion.
