Ensuring Traceability And Sustainability In The Timber Supply Chain With Blockchain - A Chat With IOV42's David Coleman The Digital Supply Chain podcast

    • Business

Blockchain can get a bit of a bad rep because of the massive carbon footprint Bitcoin has, and more recently because of its huge losses! 

Enterprise blockchains though don't suffer either of those problems and so can be very elegant solutions to some quite challenging problems. In this episode of the Digital Supply Chain podcast, I spoke to IOV42's Chief Product Officer David Coleman to hear how their blockchain solution is helping prove the provenance of timber.

We had a great conversation spanning how IOV42's blockchain works in the timber supply chain, how their algorithm uses proof of authority, not proof of stake, and what other domains they intend to target next. 

I learned loads, I hope you do too...
