Plannable Supply Chains
Illustration with Geometric Analogy
With a new wave of interest in blockchain on its way, I once again urge founders and investors to pay special attention to one promising niche — inter-industry, supranational integration of supply chains.
Large old consulting companies, such as IBM, Microsoft or EY, as well as new independent projects are already working in this area. It’s noteworthy that both classes of players integrate their solutions into public platforms. For example, Microsoft announced the launch of an identification system based on the Bitcoin blockchain, with Civic being one of its partners; Amazon promises to soon extend its service from IBM’s platforms to Ethereum.
This means smaller projects can become part of truly global frameworks, even if they go the highly questionable ICO path.
