What is it?
Blockchain technologies use continually growing datasets which are linked together through cryptographic protocols. This allows for the use of distributed systems without the need for a centralized data owner or authority.
What do we think about this technology?
Blockchain is essentially useless for product authentication, as its main objective is to secure databases, and most authentication features do not need a database.

However, AlpVision integrates seamlessly into blockchain-secured supply chains. Find out more.
