Ontology In The Media

Li Jun, Founder of Ontology was featured in the Forbes article “How Blockchain and Co. are Going to Change Beauty and Lifestyle for Good”. The article explains that while technology has always been a propelling force in the beauty and lifestyle industry, blockchain will initiate the next revolution in these industries.

“There are a multitude of ways blockchain affects the luxury market. With all premium markets, such as beauty or luxury, the verification of authenticity is of vital importance. You would be able to track the manufacturer and verify the item you are transacting with through the power of blockchain technology. But more importantly, you would be able to trace and verify the supply chain process. In a field like luxury, changes are being made constantly, especially towards a greener, eco-friendly solution. You can track this change from a raw material standpoint, moving along the supply chain until the bag is sitting on a shelf in your Louis Vuitton store.”
