The Trace Alliance, initiated by OriginTrail, is a collaborative hub of companies, organizations, individuals, and institutions aimed at facilitating the adoption of blockchain technologies in global supply chains. On July 29, the Trace Alliance website was launched and more than 30 first members of the hub were revealed. Less than two weeks after launching the website, we are delighted to announce that 10 new members were admitted to the Trace Alliance.

Trace Alliance Application Process

Organizations interested in joining the Trace Alliance can submit their application easily via this website form. Since the website launch, the Trace Alliance has received many applications from interested parties all around the globe. After taking all the applications into consideration, the Trace Alliance governance committee admitted 10 companies to become new members.

Tomaž Levak, Steering Committee member and co-founder and CEO of OriginTrail, welcomed new members:

“We are delighted to receive an overwhelming response to launching the Trace Alliance. This level of industry interest proves that many different actors can come together to benefit each other by transferring knowledge, sharing experiences and solving supply chain challenges by utilizing the blockchain and the OriginTrail protocol. There is very little applied knowledge out there that businesses and organization could use to build their blockchain knowledge. All Trace Alliance members are pioneers of blockchain technologies and industry leaders in their field of expertise, or well on their way to getting there. We are eager to share more updates about Trace Alliance activities soon.”

Meet The New Trace Alliance Members

The Trace Alliance is an organization that connects enterprises, service providers, research institutions and developers who are actively working on solving supply chain challenges with blockchain technology. Starting with those who have already developed a pilot based on OriginTrail technology, the newly minted members of the organizations are:

  1. Entobel (Animal Feed, 🇻🇳) — Entobel supplies innovative and sustainable feed ingredients made from insects. Entobel has developed a bioconversion model based on what nature has done for millions of years. By converting low-value biomass into high-grade products, Entobel is tapping into a more sustainable source of animal feed. Read the use case here.

At the moment, there are 41 members in the Trace Alliance. The excitement of growing the membership base can only be improved by getting positive feedback from companies that they are getting high value added out of their membership. This is why, in the upcoming week, the Trace Alliance team will focus on engaging with members. We will keep on reviewing the applications weekly, but our next progress report on the Trace Alliance will also include an overview of activities.

Meanwhile, companies, individuals, and organizations are still welcome to apply for membership on the Trace Alliance website. We will resolve all applications within 7 days upon receiving them.
