  • Blockchain: What's In It For The Retail and Consumer Packaged Goods Industries?

    The food industry today is worth $ 1.5 trillion, and every one of the 8 billion people on the planet is a consumer to this industry. In the recent past, the food industry has witnessed a number of problems of fraudulent and spurious products entering the food chain. As a trust based technology, blockchain lets us make the supply chain transparent says Aniket Maindarkar, Vice President - Retail, CPG, Logistics, Infosys. Blockchain can positively benefit the retail and CPG industry by ensuring food traceability and facilitating micro payments. For example, a potato farmer can now easily share data all the way up to the manufacturer of potato chips, and then on to the retailer in a strong environment of trust.

In the event of contractual breaches or aborts, the decentralized blockchain ensures that honest parties obtain commensurate compensation. Existing systems, however, lack transactional privacy. All transactions, including flow of money between pseudonyms and amount transacted, are exposed on the blockchain. We present Hawk, a decentralized smart contract system that does not store financial transactions in the clear on the blockchain, thus retaining transactional privacy from the public's view. A Hawk programmer can write a private smart contract in an intuitive manner without having to implement cryptography, and our compiler automatically generates an efficient cryptographic protocol where contractual parties interact with the blockchain, using cryptographic primitives such as zero-knowledge proofs. To formally define and reason about the security of our protocols, we are the first to formalize the blockchain model of cryptography. The formal modeling is of independent interest. We advocate the community to adopt such a formal model when designing applications atop decentralized blockchains.

Ever pondered what happens to your data when you share it online, with your bank or with your government? At Bank to the future we believe that important records and data should be in your control, secure from hackers and stored in a way it cannot be tampered with. Well, you’ll be glad to know that these problems will soon become history. Factom developed technology to tackle these issues and chose to raise part of their funding on our Online Investment Platform - BankToTheFuture.com Unlike many companies, Factom believes that data should never be stored with one organisation. It is simply too attractive a target for hackers. Unlike banks, Factom believes that customers should only share their important information as and when it is needed. Unlike governments, Factom believes that important records should be stored in a tamper proof way, transparently and impossible to be altered. ...and we agree. BnkToTheFuture.com is the largest Online Investment Platform with thousands of professional investors waiting to invest in Financial and Technological innovation. Go to our homepage and you’ll get to see the total number of professional investors, how much they have invested, and the amount of dividends that they’ve received. Factom was a perfect match for us. They had built technology that stored huge data on the Bitcoin Blockchain secure from hackers, scalable and in a way that can never be tampered. They had already funded the development of the not-for-profit side of their technology by issuing their own CryptoCurrency, but were now ready to fund the for-profit side of their business. They secured a partnership with MicroSoft, a contract to build smart Cities in China and an initial agreement to build a proof-of-concept product to store land title deeds for a government. They wanted funding from professional investors who believed in them and knew the value of their business. and they wanted the investment to come through fast, in different currencies and with a streamlined compliance and documentation process. A solution was found, and Factom decided to list on Bank To The Future. We gave Factom access to a global community of thousands of qualifying investors ready to invest in Financial and Technological innovation. We gave them a platform that complies with international financial regulations tailored for most major currencies and countries. We structured the investment in a way that meant they only get one registered investor. We cut out the painful admin, legal costs and problems raising further finance in the future, as compliance and documentation was completed by us in an optimised investment structure. And all under a “no win, no fee” agreement with no up-front costs. We provided all our investors with one investment agreement and a forum to communicate with the team quickly, efficiently and privately with additional investor protections. Investors can download all legal work, due diligence and certificates via our platform whenever they want. We also invested in Factom through one of our Venture Capital funds - Bitcoin Capital, meaning, investors got to co-invest with us on the same terms and our interests are aligned. If Factom floats on a stock market, is acquired in the future or pays investors dividends, investors get their returns minus our 5% fee. We built our Online Investment Platform with one purpose in mind - to prepare for a radically different future in Financial and Technological Innovation... Businesses just like Factom can raise finance in a safe, fast and effective way, while our investors get to allocate a portion of their wealth to an extremely disruptive and fast growing area that many are beginning to see could change the world of finance - FOREVER! Just like Factom, you can get involved by making a quick online application for finance at BankToTheFuture.com or register to see if you qualify to invest. http://bit.ly/1AJOQiZ

This video https://youtu.be/eXJHPDs4M3Y provides an easy to understand introduction to Blockchain Technology. Please leave comments and questions below the video. Here is the full transcript for your convenience: What is a Blockchain? A Blockchain is a distributed database that multiple parties share and everyone can trust. A Blockchain network provides a mutually trusted, transparent way of sharing and transacting. Each party participating in a Blockchain network maintains their own copy of the database. What makes Blockchain secure? Transactions on the database are atomic (this means that they're processed one at a time). The next transaction will be a different write or a read, but only after the preceding transaction has completed (or failed). Each write to the database is considered a ‘block’. Each new block contains a cryptographic hash (a unique fingerprint) of the previous block, creating a chain that can always be validated by checking the hashes back to the original root block. Before a block can be committed, all participants are required to validate the transaction and provide consensus that the block can be added to the chain. This effectively makes it impossible to add a record unless all parties participating in the blockchain agree the record is valid. Because all records are chained together by their hash value, once committed to the chain, all records are immutable (they cannot be changed). It is impossible to alter a previous record without altering every party’s copy of the chain. If one node is compromised, then it can no longer participate in the chain until it regenerates the true chain from the other participants. How does Blockchain prevent double spending? A major challenge of digitising assets is the potential to spend/redeem/use an asset multiple times. Because digital assets are much easier to forge than many traditional assets (such as currency, tickets, physical coupons, etc.), a secure system is required to ensure that an asset is only used once. With Blockchain, every time an asset is used or consumed, the owner of the asset signs the transfer with a private cryptographic key. This key is unique to the owner and is extremely difficult to forge. In order to initiate the transaction, the transferrer requires both the asset and their private key. The Blockchain will check both the validity of the key, and ownership of the asset. Therefore, even if the asset is cloned, it cannot be used without the private key. Once the transaction has been committed to the chain, the owner of the asset will have changed. This means, each node that receives a second transaction requesting transfer of ownership (or redemption, etc.) will see that there was a previous transaction that already transferred the asset and will reject that transaction. This prevents a second transfer block from being added to the chain. How does Blockchain ensure privacy? Personal data and identifiers are not required to be stored in the chain. Such data is stored as a hash value which provides both anonymity and security. The user may provide data such as their name, telephone number, email address, Facebook account id, unique user name, password etc. (in reality a combination of these values is used) to determine their identity. This data is hashed to provide a unique token that can only be recreated by providing the original values, and only this hash is stored to identify the party in the chain. Since it is impossible to obtain the input values by reverse engineering a hash value, the user is practically anonymous to all parties within the chain. But, they can be validated whenever required by providing the original values used to create the hash. How is PassKit utilising Blockchain? PassKit provides a private blockchain service to parties that wish to issue, record or redeem anything of value. This can be anything from loyalty points, punch card programmes, event tickets, boarding passes, to government identification, insurance policies or claim histories, tax records and educational transcripts. We utilise existing mobile wallet technology as a gateway for transacting, validating or querying our secure, private Blockchain networks. We ensure that mobile wallet content can be validated and trusted in a frictionless, realtime manner, by both consumers and by the businesses and institutions with whom they transact.
