Blockchain Technology (05th October, 2018)

X Topic Abstract

Ever since Satoshi Nakamoto revealed the Bitcoin network on the blockchain almost 10 years ago, there has been a great excitement about the potential uses of blockchain. World over, the entrepreneurs, scientists and investors are looking at this technology and trying to experiment and build prototypes with the wide array possibilities that span across the personal, social, societal and commercial areas. The figure below provides an example of areas where there is an activity on building blockchain based solutions.



Some of the interesting solutions beyond the financial services

1. E-Voting

Online Electoral polling is an area that has been plagued with the triple challenge of security and anonymity while maintaining transparency. Increasing voter turnout would also be a likely by product of bringing elections securely online. A number of solutions are being researched by the government and non-government agencies across the globe and block chain seems to provide a panacea to all the above challenges. Using blockchain, a voter can ably verify if the vote was successfully transferred while still remaining anonymous to others.

2. Proof of Existence - Decentralized Notary

Proof of Existence (PoE) is an online service that verifies the existence of computer files as of a specific time via timestamped transactions in the bitcoin blockchain. PoE enables a user to transfer data to a server with a transaction fee to get a cryptographic proof of the data entered on the Bitcoin blockchain. As the actual data is not stored online, there is no possibility of undesirable disclosure of the information of the user. Once the uploading of the document is completed with the transaction fee, a digital file or a hash of the document is developed as a proof of the action.

3. Digital ownership and music royalties

The use of blockchain can help change musicians license and get paid their songs. The royalty system needs to work logically allowing the musicians to freely concentrate on their tunes and get paid if someone uses their tunes. PeerTracks is one of several companies attempting to set up a system where every artist would sell their own separate cryptocurrency tokens as shares in their future earnings, and streaming royalties would be allocated to the owners of the tokens via smart contracts.

4. Asset Management

Asset management is one such field where the blockchain can leverage eliminating the custodian, broker or a settlement manager who is prone to inefficiency and errors in recording. The process of the blockchain ledger encrypting the records enables a reduction of the errors while simplifying the process.

5. Processing of Insurance Claims

Another field is Insurance Claims processing that is confronting unpleasant procedure. Most of the time the claim processors have to go through the fragmented records of data, or abandoned policies to name a few. A possibility of error is enormous. The blockchain enables a foolproof process for error-free administration and transparency. The encryption properties of the blockchain make insurance companies capture details of the asset ownership to insure.

6. Payments in the Cross-Border Trading

The field of cross-border payments is susceptible to errors and money laundering. The blockchain is already providing solutions to the remittance companies such as Bitspark, Align Commerce, and Abra offering blockchain driven remittance services. The banker, Santander turned as the first bank in 2004 to merge blockchain to a payment application permitting clients to do cross-border payment round-the- clock.

7. Money Lending for your Smart Property

The blockchain is capable to lessen bankruptcy chances and lose homes placed as a collateral in a loan. The blockchain enables a stranger to loan money to you against your smart property offered as a collateral encoded on the blockchain that is visible to anyone. This eliminates the need to show your work or credit history and the need for manually processing many documents.

8. Your Smartphone/Car

Your car key and smartphone can function on cryptography to secure your ownership with the right protocol or a PIN code. The blockchain ledger can easily replace and reproduce a lost protocol transferring or copying the physically held SIM card or car key.

9. Warranty Receipts

The solution uses a Facebook messenger ChatBot to store warranty receipts on the blockchain. It helps reduce disputes between retailers and customers for lost receipts and unreadable receipts and at the same time can track history of ownership

10. Patient Record Management

Blockchain based record management system to enable companies to simplify claim processing, secure medical records, monitor the pharma supply chain and collaborate with network stakeholders

X Topic Abstract

During this talk, I will address Blockchain reforming the supply chain with specific attention to how the technology improves supply chain transparency, sustainability and security.
Blockchain technology has the ability and capacity to create the next generation of digital supply chain networks and platforms which will be pivotal to the success of business transactions, thereby creating new business models. Supply chain traceability leverages transparency to operationalize organizational goals related to raw material origins and provide context to a final product or service. Blockchain technologies, provide increased supply chain transparency, added to this, the DLT creates an immutable and distributed aspect of the chain of custody record by nature of the protocol which lends itself well to traceability applications. Recent adoption of IoT and Blockchain technologies offer the promise of better supply chain provenance, especially with use cases for provenance tracking (food, high-valued assets, retail, drugs, parts). Thus far, in our age of Big Data, a key problem lies in determining provenance, whether it is tracking ingredients of a pharmaceutical or demonstrating authenticity of luxury goods, often unachievable with today's goods which are produced and transported in complex, inter-organizational, often internationally-spanning supply chains. However, 2018 has heralded a change in supply chain management with the integration of Blockchain, which many firms worldwide are leveraging.
- I will provide use cases as well as some major players in the blockchain/supply chain sector discussing various goods.
- Analyses of specific white papers leveraging the technology with other tech (AI, RFID, Synthetic DNA).
