Use Cases for Blockchain

Financial Services Infrastructure
vmw-finance_965X545

Financial Services Infrastructure of today uses siloed systems designed decades ago. Reconciliation of data in siloed systems results in friction, delays, and cost to clearing and settlement. Blockchain provides a single source of truth for multi-party transactions to be processed safely, securely, efficiently, and privately.

Supply Chain

Supply chain is now a global network of suppliers, factories, and customers scattered worldwide that rely on disconnected systems to process orders, deliver goods, and process payment. Blockchain provides a trusted platform for supply chain networks to transact on a single source of truth.

Healthcare

Blockchain can have a multi-facet impact on healthcare - from credentialing of hospital staff to verify that they have the proper education and training, to patient ownership of private data, to reducing vulnerabilities and inefficiencies in long and disjointed pharma supply chains.
