Product details

Blockchain is a new technology being used to drive corporate transparency. At the core, it is a ledger technology where everyone has a copy, and all transactions are verified before being replicated. In this course, we will take a look at three supply chain interactions and see how blockchain can be implemented to reduce errors, increase auditability, and drive collaboration. The focus areas will be on physical goods, from producer to retailer, digital products, and vendor relationships for royalty payments.

A special note will be spent on privacy, security, and certain regulations with regards to the same.
