Blockchain is getting its fair share of buzz lately. Bitcoin and other crypto-currencies are stealing headlines with massive overnight gains in value. The risk/reward is exciting and capable of grabbing major headlines. But if you are like me, you are watching from the sidelines, wondering if this is another one of the “investments that got away”. I will be honest, I will probably never own bitcoin, mostly because its fundamentals go against everything that I learned and have come to know about solid investments.
But as I dig a little further into its core technology – blockchain – there is something intriguing here as it relates to Supply Chain. Could blockchain be a safe bet AND a breakthrough for how we track and trace our inventory?
