“Vanig(VANIG) have developed a prototype to bring the eCommerce and supply chain process onto a blockchain. The platform will allow sharing of information between participants on a secure blockchain-based network and automates processes such as bill of lading and fix inefficiencies due to double marginalization and information asymmetry . Vanig’s prototype is built on hybrid blockchain using Hyperledger Sawtooth and Ethereum(ETH).

Blockchain presents many promises for the future of Supply chain. Challenges still remain, such as scalability and privacy but forward leaning companies like Vanig are finding new opportunities to leverage blockchain to improve eCommerce and supply chain industry”

Here is what Jeremey has to stay about Vanig –

“Vanig is currently building a solution to these (and much more) problems. The solution is built on the blockchain, which is a perfect use-case and marries the best aspects of the blockchain with the biggest issues in supply-chain. The problems of multiple intermediaries, high fees, low visibility and lack of tracking is tackled by a scalable proprietary blockchain solution.

By harnessing cutting-edge technology which was non-existent in 2008, I believe 2018 to be the year where supply-chain management gets disrupted by Vanig, leading to a more level-playing field among brands and marketplaces.”
