The Trace Alliance Website — A Meeting Place for Future Blockchain Projects
The Trace Alliance, a non-profit association which connects businesses, technology companies, the public sector and academics in the field of blockchain research and practical solutions for supply chains, got its brand new website earlier this week. You can visit it at https://alliance.origintrail.io.
The Trace Alliance was established by OriginTrail as a collaborative hub to connect all organizations aiming to work together to solve complex supply chain challenges using blockchain technology. Examples of the challenges the alliance intents to tackle include data interoperability, securing product visibility and fighting counterfeit practices. The Trace Alliance acts as a unique platform for sharing knowledge and experience from real-world blockchain implementations, connecting with other members, creating new expertise, and facilitating the adoption of blockchain technology on a global level.
More than 35 companies from all over the world have already joined the alliance to explore possibilities of using blockchain technology in their business environment, and more organizations already applied for membership now that they can do it directly through the website. Joining the Trace Alliance brings companies closer to using the OriginTrail blockchain protocol for data exchange in their supply chain by connecting with a global network of software development and implementation partners. Existing members of the Trace Alliance include Deloitte, TMA Solutions, Gijima, T-Provenance, Oregon Tilth, TE-FOOD, BTC Logistics Centre, and more enterprises and service providers.
